    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Because Allen hasn't lost his knack for slapstick with a sting, Anything Else hits its mark more often than not. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    This seemingly good idea results in disaster. Allen has no insight into the current generation of young people, and his film is just a jumbled rehash of themes and motifs that he's explored elsewhere. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    It's asking a lot of audiences to spend nearly two hours with characters as screen-unfriendly as the ones played by Biggs and Ricci, though both actors (and especially Ricci) do what they're asked to do. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Too labored to be romantic and too derivative to be funny. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    On the plus side are engaging performances by Jason Biggs and Christina Ricci. On the minus side is . . . everything else. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The worst performance in a film that diminishes even the talented Stockard Channing is given by Allen. He's never written a more unpleasant, vapid or irredeemable character for himself, and he makes it worse by overplaying. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    Has some of the wit, sass and sexual candor of an "Annie Hall." But it covers the same kind of territory with more bite and bile. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    At a time when so many American movies keep dialogue at a minimum so they can play better overseas, what a delight to listen to smart people whose conversation is like a kind of comic music. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Anything Else may not be the second coming of "Annie Hall," but it has more wit and substance than almost every post-college romance that sees the inside of a projection booth. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    With Anything Else, Woody Allen proves himself an old dog capable of thinking up some new tricks. show more
