Im a big fan of Larry David so I REALLY expected to like this movie but it stunk.I guess I shouldve expected that after it was directed by Woody Allen

Wasn't impressed at all by this. While it had its moments and some great casting, it was a downhill from the best Woody stuff. Mildly entertaining, but that's it. Hollywood as such really isn't doing it for me in recent times.

Superb! Probably my favorite Allen comedy since Zelig . I loved Larry David as the woody character.. It just worked for me. I also laughed loudly during several scenes. This is worth mentioning because most comedies just get me to chuckle every now and then. Loved the story line with Patricia Clarkson. A+++

Akzeptanz

Woody Allens Komödie eröffnet mit dem Song "Hello, I Must Be Going", der in fünf Worten die Welt seines Helden Boris Yellnikoff zusammenfasst. Yellnikoff, vortrefflich gespielt von Larry David, ist ein Physiker, der ein Mal beinahe für den Nobelpreis nominiert worden wäre. Jetzt ist er geschieden von einer Frau, die so perfekt zu ihm passte, dass es ihm unerträglich war. Yellnikoff, ein Forscher im Ruhestand, der Schachunterricht für Gleichgesinnte erteilt. Täglich sitzt er mit seinen alten Kollegen zusammen in einer Kaffee Bar und doziert vor ihnen. Wohlbemerkt, das sind keine Unterhaltungen, sondern Vorträge. Alles entspringt aus seiner paradoxen Überzeugung, dass die Welt so faszinierend ist, dass es ihm unerträglich erscheint. Yellnikoff eröffnet mit einem Monolog, bevor er ...

Whatever Works

There's something about being one of six sparsely laughing people in a theater to watch a Woody Allen film. It's like having a favorite diner, wondering how in the world they can stay in business, but enjoying it while it lasts.

There's nothing more worn out and tired like a "new" Woody Allen film, but hey, whatever works, right? We have the same characters, but new actors. This film is about the same as Scoop quality-wise (but hey, I was one of the only people who liked that movie). Evan Rachel Wood is one of my favorite actresses, but let me level with you. She is atrocious with her accent, with everything about her. There, I said it. Everyone else is pretty good, even Larry David, who is just a pale imitation of Woody Allen here. And I'll be honest, I would prefer the real thing. Ho...
