This is a lighter romp for Allen, which doesn't hold the deeper emotional impact of better Allen fare, such as Manhattan or Annie Hall. Still, it's a fun and slapsticky trip through the sci-fi genre, poking fun at other sci-fi creations, such as 1984 and Brave New World. Allen mostly plays the material as screwball, but the film does get in some wittier barbs at a futuristic society (such as the robot priest that is stationed in a McDonalds.)

I don't remember a lot about this movie. I just remember thinking it was funny.

"Sleeper" by Yojimbo

A health food store owner wakes up from cryogenic stasis to find himself 200 years in the future and the unlikely hero of an underground set on toppling the Big Brother style government. One of Woody Allen's funniest films, Sleeper is scattershot spoof of science fiction movies packed with his trademark one liners and clear homages to the silent era. For me, it's easily at its best when parodying the health food fads of the time "All of your friends have been dead for nearly 200 years!" "They can't be, they ate organic rice!" but there's also plenty of slapstick in the style of Chaplin, Lloyd and Keaton as well as some clear nods to the Marx brothers. It's a great mix of po-faced 70s sci-fi (you wouldn't know it was a comedy until Allen's goofy face first appears) and plain sillines and a...

The laughs sleep through this one

"Miles Monroe" (Woody Allen) was a clarinet playing health food store owner in 1973 who was frozen after slipping into a coma. Two-hundred years later, he wakes in a police state where people "perform" sex in an "Ograsmatron" booth and robots have replaced household help and man's best friend as well.

He is hired to help the Underground to destroy this police state's "Leader" and comes across poet/artist "Luna" (Diane Keaton), whom thinks "Miles" is trying to destroy the lifestyle she has grown accustom to.

The first thing you will notice in this movie, which will be hard not to, is that a lot of sight gags just comes at you at a continuous pace. However, unlike "Airplane!" the jokes produce few laughs. In fact, many of the slapstick comedy you've seen before, only set up differen...
