    Allen takes an interesting enough premise into sitcom territory in Hollywood Ending, an astonishingly boring and vacuous excuse for comedy, full of recycled jokes, plot, ideas, and scenes that ramble on forever with no end.

    It's got a hilarious storyline, and a charm about it that can't help but bring a jolly smirk to your face. But it's not as good as Woody's last two efforts, "Small Time Crooks," and the woefully unappreciated "Curse Of The Jade Scorpion." Woody began making his films audacious, comic, immature, and weird--but good.

But it's not as good as Woody's last two efforts, "Small Time Crooks," and the woefully unappreciated "Curse Of The Jade Scorpion." Woody began making his films audacious, comic, immature, and weird--but good. He then spun into dark comedies, deep character studies. His movies now seem to be Woody making an effort to stop being so mysterious--he's making good movies, just different good movies. I like them. Collapse

    Really disappointing with very few laughs and no one character that I really gave a damn about.

    Woody Allen's underrated masterpiece. I still don't think I'd care to be friends with him, but he made me laugh out loud a lot.

    Woody you should seriously think about including Judge Gammerman in your next picture. He certainly can liven up the dialogue.

    A bouquet of snappy one-liners and disarming nuttiness.

    Serves as more proof, as if any were needed, that Allen desperately needs to devote more time to polishing his scripts, and less to heedlessly banging out one film a year, year in and year out.
  3. It might not be good enough to make you laugh consistently, but Hollywood Ending looks good enough to eat.
