Plot Outline:

A mild mannered film critic is dumped by his wife and his ego is crushed. His hero persona is the tough guy played by Humphrey Bogart in many of his movies and the apparition of Bogart begins showing up to give him advice. With the encouragement of his two married friends, he actually tries dating again, with less than satisfactory results, until he relaxes.

It's one of Woody Allen's best.

I really like this one, until the halfway point. Then it just loses steam, for me.

"Play It Again, Sam" by Yojimbo

A neurotic film critic with an obsession with Bogart is divorced by his wife and so spends all of his time with friends who unsuccessfully try to set him up with a variety of women. A long, long time ago (we're talking geological time scales here), before he became a morally suspect and unbearably pretentious narcissist, Woody Allen was a very funny man. Play It Again, Sam is easily his most charming and funny film in my opinion, using the simple premise of a terminally self-conscious guy who has to come to terms with the ups and downs of the dating scene while comparing the celluloid image of "masculinity" with its realities. Its genuinely witty script is full of really nicely observed comedy and very funny one liners and makes me wonder how it all went wrong. I really enjoyed this film ...
