Older kids may like this Woody Allen comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 6, 2006
Like a Swiss clock, Allen is the only American director who makes a film every year, but chronic fatigue and lack of inspiration seem to have taken over his work, as this retro comedy, using the old conceit of hypnosis, shows.

May 26, 2006
Woody Allen cooks up an easy-going little swindle comedy, not too far off from his last film Small Time Crooks.
July 25, 2003
Diálogos sem graça em um filme sem ritmo. Um dos mais fracos do diretor.
| Original Score: 2/5
March 19, 2003
A little Woody goes a long way. His cloying nebbishness gets old quickly, though he does have a singular wit and some kind of indefinable charm.

January 3, 2003
'The old joke of Woody as irresistible romantic lead has gone from funny, to discomforting, to pitiable.'
December 23, 2002
Is it funny? Yeah, kinda. But somehow it doesn't all come together. It's not that the material is lacking, but, incredibly for an Allen picture, that the delivery is off-kilter.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
November 19, 2002
So devoid of wit, vigour or interest that it's hard not to wonder if the former Allan Konigsberg has finally lost his touch.

October 21, 2002
This isn't vintage Woody -- we haven't seen that since, oh, Hannah and Her Sisters -- but it's good enough.
October 15, 2002
Mr. Allen asks the audience to believe that an irresistible sexual tension arises out of the oil-and-vinegar combination of Betty Ann and C.W.; instead, they look and sound utterly uncomfortable together.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Allen made funnier films when he thought he was Ingmar Bergman.
Full Review| Original Score: 1/4
August 9, 2002
The movie has an odd feeling, both lush and listless. It's enough to make us believe Allen's comic batteries need recharging.

...plods along with all the verve and inspiration of a contractual obligation.
June 9, 2002
While it delivers a healthy supply of humor and a few snappy performances, it's so airy it practically floats right off the screen.
January 25, 2002
Allen keeps the film rolling by letting his character's vulnerability seep into even the most heated exchanges.
Full Review | Original Score: short
January 22, 2002
The romance between C.W. and Betty Ann doesn't have much ardor, repressed or otherwise.
January 6, 2002
Mid-level, pretty-but-not- hugely-funny Allen film.

January 1, 2002
Here's a film that simply reeks of contractual obligations and a screenplay yanked out of someone's attic.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 11, 2001
La Maldicin del Escorpin de Jade es una delicia venenosa e hipntica!
September 23, 2001
It is so insubstantial and comically weak that it barely tickles the laugh meter. It does provide a number of smiles, however.
