(**1/2-out of 4) Hope this logs? I was on another site & I wrote 2 long-reviews on same film-(even compiling *"The Woodman" Woody Allen's-(1935-) OSCAR-record 13 screenplay nominations! But they need help over there.... Anyway, *Woody (**1/2-out of 4) Hope this logs? I was on another site & I wrote 2 long-reviews on same film-(even compiling *"The Woodman" Woody Allen's-(1935-) OSCAR-record 13 screenplay nominations! But they need help over there.... Anyway, *Woody is my personal fav. filmmaker today. & his newest annual film is just ok. He's an acquired taste. & In an obvious effort to appeal to a younger crowd he has both Jasob Biggs & Christina Ricci-Man, has she changed from my memories of her being Winona's lil' sis in 1990's "Mermaids" But both are actually pretty dull performers. Of course *Woody has now recruited Biggs into his world of "Woody-isms" He's done it with the likes of Ed Norton, Cusack & of course mostly: Mia Farrow-(1945-)whom did 13 flix with him) & *Diane Keaton-(1946-) she did 8. & In essence they sound like him. Banter back and fourth,etc. But in this lil' flick it's *Woody himself that steals his own show for most part. & It's a little different type of character he plays here. A lil' man of hidden violence? I'll never divulge endings as some do though. But as i noted he holds all-time ACADEMY record of Best Screenplay noms. (13 to date)-1 more than the late: *Billy Wilder-(1906-2003) & It's very unlikely he will win, or even be nominated for this comedy. If your a true fan, you go though. & as I log this & If it takes? Yet another heavyweight has passed away: *Elia Kazan-(1909-2003) & speaking of such. Of course most *Woody fans know his #1 idol is: Bob Hope-(1903-2003) & If you check out his earliest jazz, you'll see a lot of Hope & Groucho Marx as well. I've always felt the lil' guy deserved an OSCAR nom for '72's "Play It Again, Sam" I've always felt since he only acted, no writing or directing, he was able to concentrate on his work as an imbecile in that movie!? But we all know how fond the ACADEMY is of all out comedy. Although his biggie OSCAR-wise *"Annie Hall" '77 did defeat "Star Wars?" By the way, he's been nominated for Best Director 6 times td. Thank You & please post this-(unlike ....) Expand
