Woody is slipping

I've enjoyed many of Woody's films. This one - not so much. Although loaded with talented actors, the script gives them little to work with. Helen Hunt is almost robotic. Allen stammers around & delivers his lines without conviction and very little humor. Even the soundtrack music is repetitive and rather uninspired. In was a waste of my time. Don't waste yours unless you're really hard up for entertainment.

A brilliantly funny comedy

This movie flows with the style that you come to expect with a Woody Allen film. The characters are great and the situations between the two main characters are simply amazing.

Too much sex
