The Annie Hall homage Burning Annie is a thoroughly professional comedy, well paced, attractively photographed and smartly acted.
| Original Score: 3/5
Burning Annie has funny moments, but it suffers from an overflow of characters.
| Original Score: 2/4
Pic relies on nerdy world-weary irony to carry the day, but doesn't convincingly draw its characters.
For all the shallowly witty banter, Max and company are even less interesting than Annie and Alvy.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Ordynans's exceptionally canny script nails how thoroughly pop culture has colonized our sentiments, and the necessity of those little emotional revolutions required to overthrow its reign.
Even with a look at many of these people's relationship problems, there's nothing remotely interesting to listen to when they talk.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
The movie has its moments of comedic brilliance -- just not quite enough of them.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
