Autobiographical, witty, absolutely clever and sexually analytical: No one could top Woody in his best decade. Annie Hall is, quite possibly, the best sample of his genius, while we witness simple reality collide with internal monologues of inevitable truths and a never-ending chain of psychological thoughts, aspects worthy of a renowned novelist! Woody and Diane: The "un"couple of cinematic romance. 97/100

Movies like this are copied all the time but I don't think they've ever captured the feeling the way Woody Allen did. God, it's just entertaining- I mean, the way it's put together. Some of the scenes could have easily been overdone, some of the jokes overplayed, but that didn't happen here. It was so perfectly imperfect but not in an annoying "look how quirky I am!" way and it was realistically awkward but not to the point where it got too uncomfortable to watch. I really loved it.

So many great films came out during the 1970s, and Annie Hall is one of them. The screenplay is absolutely amazing. The two lead performances are terrific; Diane Keaton is charming and Woody Allen is perfectly irritating and cynical. The chemistry between the two really elevates the emotional resonance of the film. Charming, hilarious, quirky, and unique, Annie Hall cannot be missed. Winner of 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture.

(Not) the comedy milestone.

Considered to be Woody Allen's masterwork of romance and humor, Annie Hall has gone down in history with many filmgoers and critics alike for being so relatable… I can testify it's a good romcom, but where exactly is the relatable part?

I of course like, what everyone understands under the film. The humor and the way it is displayed. The dialogue is over the top and extravagant. I simply adore the way the story is told through nervous Alvy Singer's eyes, often breaking the fourth wall to bring a point across or express something. His mannerisms and way of speech add all the more hilarity to the role and brings new life to romantic comedy couples. Every time those two were on screen, I was giggling.

My main problem with this film is that I don't know how to properly judge it. I …

Annie Hall review

The on-screen romance between Allen and Keaton works wonders for this film. It's unfortunate that the impressive dialogue was not realistic enough. Who would say these lines in real life? "Don't you see the rest of the country looks upon New York like we're left-wing, communist, Jewish, homosexual pornographers? I think of us that way sometimes and I live here." or let’s say "Sometimes when I'm driving... on the road at night... I see two headlights coming toward me. Fast. I have this sudden impulse to turn the wheel quickly, head-on into the oncoming car. I can anticipate the explosion. The sound of shattering glass. The... flames rising out of the flowing gasoline." Creatively pessimistic and annoying. Had a few laughs like when Annie was driving fast and a young Alvy with his …

"Sex with you is really a Kafkaesque experience."

Lobsters. An animated Snow White spoof. A coital out of body experience. Split-screens. Direct addresses to the camera. Non-linear chronology. These are just a handful of the mechanisms that Woody Allen employs in his lively, infectious romantic comedy. Usually, when one hears the phrase "romantic comedy," one instinctively cringes, visions of tired, treacly creakers like Serendipity or What Happens in Vegas popping frighteningly into one's head. Annie Hall disregards all these conventions and demonstrates the possibilities of the genre. Allen's neurotic nebbish, in full "Woody" mode, and Keaton's scatterbrained title character form one of the most endearing couples in screen history--particularly Keaton, who enchants in one of her finest, Oscar-winning performances. The film …
