Just rubbish. Stilted, unnatural dialogue, wooden performances, pretensious and bourgious. Its concept is supposedly the same story told two different ways. Its not. Its two different stories told the same way - badly.

I rented this pitiful "film." I am appalled that anybody was willing to fund this. It reminded me of a beginning acting class where people pair up and do scenes in front of the class and "act" with all the realism of a piece of wood. I rented this pitiful "film." I am appalled that anybody was willing to fund this. It reminded me of a beginning acting class where people pair up and do scenes in front of the class and "act" with all the realism of a piece of wood. Moreover, the archaic dialoge just sounded ridiculous. Does Mr. Allen ever listen to contemporary conversations? Oh, and everyone is an accomplished musician and they only like Cole Porter! "I was walking along a sidewalk and there was a piano. I used to play in high school. Actually, I gave concerts." Puh-lease. The only cast member I didn't pity was Amanda Peet, who emerged from this mess without losing any dignity. Can't say the same for everyone else. Hey, what did you guys think? Expand

I revere Woody Allen. But this is one Woody Allen flm I cannot support. The juxtaposition of the storyline simultaneously along tragic and comedic lines just does not work. Most of all, it's confusing. Notwithstanding a terrible script, II revere Woody Allen. But this is one Woody Allen flm I cannot support. The juxtaposition of the storyline simultaneously along tragic and comedic lines just does not work. Most of all, it's confusing. Notwithstanding a terrible script, I have to say Will Farrell does an admirable job. The other cast members fall flat. Expand

Deux points de vue tout au long du film, deux façons d'aborder une histoire : l'une "tragique", l'autre "comique"... (entre guillemets, car ce n'est ni tragique ni comique, ni tragicomique, c'est juste con). Première erreur, les acteurs neDeux points de vue tout au long du film, deux façons d'aborder une histoire : l'une "tragique", l'autre "comique"... (entre guillemets, car ce n'est ni tragique ni comique, ni tragicomique, c'est juste con). Première erreur, les acteurs ne sont pas les mêmes entre les deux alternatives, exceptée Radha Mitchell la blonde toujours aussi ravissante, devenue une adorable milf). Seconde erreur, c'est réalisé par Woody Allen. Troisième erreur (fatale) : c'est écrit par Woody Allen, ce qui signifie des dialogues creux, des personnages vides et des blablas interminables et abrutissants : on dirait que le film dure 5h. Un gros étron donc, démoulé par l'andouille Woody Allen : on est même pas surpris. Expand
