Annie Hall

I watched it with my GF and loved it. I've never been a big fan of Woody Allen, but this one cracked me up.

most of his earlier films (hannah & her sisters and earlier) are classics.
annie hall is great but always preferred manhattan & hannah & her sisters
to it. have thought for a long time that stardust memories (smack in his
classic period was way underrated). no one plays a bumbling, oversexed
neurotic consistently better than woody. his frequent sidekicks diane keaton and
tony roberts are always top-notch too.

Make it a point to watch Take the Money and Run, Sleeper and Bananas.
If you liked Annie Hall, you ought to like those. These earlier movies were less moody.

^^ +1. Annie Hall was his last good one, IMO.

Sorry, I didn't much like Annie Hall when I saw it many years ago.

But, maybe I should give it another look see sometime as I have heard from a lot of people
that it's quite good. Maybe I was too young then. Don't know.

I used to feel that way too, it took me to see a few movies to catch better ones.
His work could be spotty, though my tastes have changed also.

A favorite movie. The lobster scene is great.. LA people take offense on all the hits on the West coast.. Woodie Allen movies. Always love the music . too.
