Audience Reviews for Annie Hall

    Hilariously offbeat and quirky, Annie Hall is an unconventional comedy with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.

    Probably the best romantic comedy you'll ever see. Woody Allen plays Alvy Singer, an insecure, cerebral comedian living in Manhattan (hmm), who is trying to understand how his relationship with Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) ended. The script is fantastic, and Allen gives us a steady stream of jokes ranging from subtle, intellectual references to physical comedy, and while I only laughed out loud a few times, I was often smiling. He also uses a variety of creative techniques in this film - speaking directly to the camera, stepping directly into childhood memories, giving voice to inner thoughts, and including a brief animation, among other things. He explores love, sex, and relationships, but also the cultural differences between Jews and Gentiles, and New Yorkers and Californians in clever ways. His understated facial reaction as Keaton orders Pastrami on white bread with lettuce and tomatoes is priceless. The film is sweet, endearing, and sentimental about relationships, and yet it's also balanced, showing the bittersweet pitfalls with just the right touches, including a brilliant ending. On top of all that, it's great to see Paul Simon in a couple of scenes, Allen's references to the 1969 documentary "The Sorrow and the Pity", and Diane Keaton's wonderful performance of "Seems Like Old Times". Great film, and very worthy of the Academy Awards it won.

    Annie Hall is the film notorious for beating out Star Wars for Best Picture. So, is this a case where the Academy picked the right film and those plebs just lack in good taste? Or is this one of those films where the bourgeois all pretend to think it is great, but it is not really? Well, that is too much build up for this film. Annie Hall is a fine film about two people that are just fine together, except that makes it too good to be true, so we will have to figure out something to go wrong. This is a humanist romantic comedy: intelligent, witty, insightful, etc. Well, it works just fine there. It is good cerebral entertainment, and is at times playfully surreal in an everyday way. While I do not think it is the best Woody Allen film (Stardust Memories stands out to me) or the best film ever, it is a good film. (Is that OK? Can we just be happy with that?)

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