Wasn't the greatest of Woody Allen's films. Definitely good plot and very clever as always but I was kind of bored...? I don't know. It was funny and very good I just didn't find myself loving it.

There is a lot of promise in the premise, which purports to present two versions of the same story - a comic and tragic version. However, the script is too obsessed with being clever and misses the life and innate wittiness of past Allen films. The cast are all performing well under their potential here.

****face and Douchebag

Woody Allen's latest, Melinda and Melinda, has a promising premise: In a familiar Allen scene where pretentious, cardigan-clad, arty folk philosophize over wine in public, two playwrights discuss a situation they've overheard. That situation belongs to Melinda, an unstable, travel-worn woman who interrupts an important dinner party by unexpectedly arriving at her friends' Upper East Side apartment. One playwright (Larry Pine) envisions Melinda's background as a tragedy, while the other (Wallace Shawn) invents a comedy. Director Allen, however, looks at both, and the film delineates the playwrights' respective takes, essentially making two films.

The only constant in the two stories is Melinda, the unannounced guest, endearingly played by Radha Mitchell. The tragic tale has Melinda, aft...
