These days, comedy beggars can't be choosers. Woody Allen is about all we've got. And Woody, please stay healthy.

As a stand-up routine it's a scream.

Plenty of one-liners, and it has the best banana-skin joke in film history.

The film is loaded with throwaway literacy and broad slapstick, and while it fumbles the end, the parade of verbal and visual amusement is pleasant as long as it lasts.

Sleeper is the closest Allen has come to classic slapstick-and-chase comedy, and he's good at it.
