Stupidest movie ever!

TONS of sex and sex talk drugs drinking language.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Yikes! No more Woody Allen for me.

I'm surprised that Annie Hall would be recommended. I don't think it would be appropriate to just watch the movie without addressing the problems regarding Woody Allen, who married his step-daughter the minute she turned 18 and accused of abuse by another younger daughter. I used to be a big fan of his other movies, never enjoyed this one, found it plodding and uninteresting. Now I can't enjoy any movie that he has had anything to do with. I tried watching the Ant movie but when the princess Ant might fall for the Woody Allen Ant, I wanted to yell out "DON'T DO IT ! HE'S A CREEP!" I tried another because Bette Midler was in it. I found it just turned my stomach. No more Woody Allen movies for me. There's no icon for such a creepy situation.
