Writer: Woody Allen
Director: Woody Allen
Starring: Larry David, Evan Rachel Wood, Patricia Clarkson, blah, blah, blah
woody allen played by larry david transforms uptight conservative southerners into trendy new yorkers (their true selves) with the power of his whining paranoia and negative outlooks on life.
Yeah, I am also pretty-well done with the standard Allen fare at this point. I love some of his movies (Annie Hall, Everything..., Manhattan) and I think that Leila would really like Everyone Says I Love You but I have too much invested in my marriage to put that in front of her. This was Woody Allen to the point of being boring. If anything it shows that he's a better director than he is a writer.
Maybe he should team up with Kevin Smith.
this was like the unholy union, axis of evil for me. i hate woody allen. i hate larry david. i don't appreciate anything they have to say. i don't think they're funny and i think woody allen has been making the same "comedy" movie for the last, what, 30 years? 40 years? in this they join their dark powers for mediocrity in this movie. i don't know what is attractive about a constant complaining old man to a teenager. it's gross. in real life and in this movie. it's also not realistic. just because mr. writer/director bagged himself a teenage asian daughter doesn't mean this scenario is something that would happen. it was also maddeningly predictable. woody allen vomit. his drama is way more inventive and i could be prodded to say i even appreciate it. some of it. two of them. maybe one and a half of them. was the one with ian mcshane a dramatic one? or was that comedy? i can't remember, hence that's the one i'm counting as a half.
