    Sunnier and sillier than most of Allen's recent work, makes its belly laughs heartwarming. It's a most winning movie about losers. show more

    A delicious comedy that starts out promisingly as a pleasant gag comedy but then turns unexpectedly into a bright social satire. show more

    Only Elaine May shines, in a weird and wonderful turn. Her loopy character has such a struck-by-lightning demeanor that she's always delightfully off in her own comic orbit even in the tritest of scenes. show more
