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.

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

Woody Allen at his smartest, wittiest, funniest and best.

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.

For all the jokes though, it is the relationship between Alvy and Annie that makes it so wonderful.

"Annie Hall" is filled with classic jokes and comic set pieces that have entered into common parlance, yet still retain their comic power regardless how many times you've seen the movie.

Lifelong anhedonia may have robbed Allen of happiness, but at least it gave him some material.

I imagine it was probably more ground-breaking when it came out.

It's a very funny film, playing with half-baked intellectual ideas, with Woody at the top of his verbal game.

It's good, but it's far from Allen's best film.

Woody Allen in his prime. Great narrative gimmicks and a tragically realistic story.

There will be discussion about what points in the film coincide with the lives of its two stars, but this, I think, is to detract from and trivialize the achievement of the film, which, at last, puts Woody in the league with the best directors we have.

Woody Allen is a genius. You can't even say that he really is an American filmmaker, because his movies are in a category of their own.

I love how honest this movie is. It's raw, it's awkward, and it's ugly, but it's all right there and right on.
