    Minor but still quite enjoyable. And like other minor Woody Allen pictures it becomes more interesting when placed in their larger context. show more

    The movie ends just when complications start to set in, which makes you wonder how invested Allen really is in the little melodramas within this comedy. show more

    Hardly a laff riot, but then that's been true of Allen's movies for a while. It is, however, briskly cynical about human nature, graciously forgiving about human foibles, and situationally amusing about the spectacles otherwise sane people make of themselves when they trust their fates to the stars. show more
