Movie Info

Woody Allen's romantic comedy of the Me Decade follows the up and down relationship of two mismatched New York neurotics. Jewish comedy writer Alvy Singer (Allen) ponders the modern quest for love and his past romance with tightly-wound WASP singer Annie Hall (Diane Keaton, née Diane Hall). The twice-divorced Alvy knows that it's not easy to find a mate when the options include pretentious New York intellectuals and lifestyle-obsessed Rolling Stone writers, but la-di-dah-ing Annie seems

Allen joins the Catskills tummler's anything-for-a-laugh antics with a Eurocentric art-house self-awareness and a psychoanalytic obsession in baring his sexual desires and frustrations, romantic disasters, and neurotic inhibitions.

This is the link between Allen's "earlier, funnier" stuff and more probing works like Interiors and Manhattan. Would that we all could build such masterful bridges.

Personal as the story he is telling may be, what separates this film from Allen's own past work and most other recent comedy is its general believability.

A touching and hilarious love story that is Allen's most three-dimensional film to date.

Visually and structurally it's a mess, but many of the situations are genuinely clever, and there are plenty of memorable gags.

If you can forgive the fact that it's a ragbag of half-digested intellectual ideas dressed up with trendy intellectual references, you should have a good laugh.

Although Woody Allen had still to acquire great technical strength as a film-maker, this was the movie where he found his own singular voice, a voice that echoes across events with a mixture of exuberance and introspection.

It's a testament to the timelessness of Annie Hall that most of its references to pop culture or current events are unsuccessful in dating the film.

Annie Hall, for all its vagaries, is a funny, often touching, sometimes astute picture.

Woody Allen's classic comedy has one opening scene after another, never seeming to run short of prologues and prefaces.

Annie Hall expanded Woody Allen's canvas to incorporate real wisdom alongside the punchlines.

Many things mark Annie Hall's place in cinema history, but none of them are the reason you should see this movie. That would be the humour, poignancy and acute observation contained in each and every frame.

In Annie Hall, Allen again writes, directs and stars with Diane Keaton in a remarkable recreation of a spent love affair, which is both sad and hysterically funny.

Seeing it again for the first time in many years, I'm struck by how perfect it seems.

A funny film, and it's fresh even today, though it's not a knee-slapper. Rather, it's a shrug-your-shoulder-and-grin kind of movie.

It is unabashedly quirky and peculiar, but as such it has the kind of visionary quality essential to all truly great cinema.

Lovely performances, and more superb gags in one minute than most movies manage in 90.

To represent the male view of romance and feelings through the role of Alvy Singer (played by Woody Allen), writer-director Allen updated the familiar stock character of thje "little man" who's at bay in a complex world--a grown up Charlie Brown.

I guess I just don't like films with Woody Allen in them. I try to watch them, but he prattles on and on.

Woody Allen's neurotic and original classic 'Annie Hall' still holds up as a poignant comedy to this day. Not only is it hilarious, but Allen's fresh techniques and style compliment the film and place it above and beyond other comedies of the era. An exuberant mix of heart, laughs, and societal issues, 'Annie Hall' is sure to capture any contemporary audience as much as it did back when it was first released.

Creative for its time, and it must have been a real shock to Allen's fans - who'd see this coming after Bananas, Love and Death, etc.? - but it's a film I find grossly overrated. Landmark performance for Diane Keaton, and a script with lots of twists and turns (not to mention some great zingers), but for a non-cliched ending like this one it's still rather twee. And though I know it's the point, it's not much fun watching such unlikeable characters. A valuable film that showed a new side of Woody Allen - a dramatic one - but one that's not nearly as fun to watch as reported to be. It's important to see but I don't think it ages well.
