There's enough of Woody's familiar shticks to please his regular audience.
It is Woody's familiar shticks that ruins this vague film.
Woody's acting begs removal from the film, and begs "director direction", other than himself. Unfortunately, I only see the the Woody from years ago...over-wordy Woody, the nervous Jew from New York.
His best performances in this film are his silent reactions...when he had no dialog. I yearned for more of these moments.
Unfortunately, it shows his lack of growth and maturity licensed to seasoned film makers. He has seemed to have missed the "end-of-career" latitude granted to stellar directors....to delve deeper into his pocket. I guess his heyday is over. That happens.
"Bannanas" had more depth than this....or maybe I was expecting more.
