Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask Reviews
Admittedly clever ideas for segments but overall just not as funny as previous works and probably would have worked better if Allen took a more serious stab at the topics with added comedy instead of going full on spoof, has not aged well on rewatch and apart from sheep and ejaculation segments - leaves alot to be desired
This is a Woody flick that I never really knew about. One of his first and a film of seven segments, where every part is got some sort of sex or kinky feature. I do enjoy some segments. "Sperm", "Tit", "Sheep" and "Gameshow" all has something in them for me. Gene Wilder is a nice face to see in "Sheep", "Sperm" is probably the smartest and funniest one - great lines here! "Tit" is way out and is silly enough to work, while the idea of "Gameshow" is a pretty accurate diss to TV-shows.
It has hits and misses, but miss more than it hits. When it hits, it often hits you weakly.
I guess it's a bit outdated and the jokes are not that fresh. I do like the idea and it's execution is also all right.
So, an outdated film, that has some very original and far out moves, but the solid humor is not there - it remains a bit flat. If you see it, make sure you see the last part. It adds several total score points for me.
5.5 out of 10 rabbits.
Hosting many actors & quite a few skits where quite clever especially the final one that was very innovative & imaginative.
It's an odd film & won't be for everyone but I found it original & we'll put together. It has many visuals that will stay with you well after the film.
This movie depicts several short stories about unique relationships and sexual interactions. The stories take base in different countries and different eras and somehow they all tie together. As is sex, the content mixes love, humor, and unique relationships and desires.
"We have an erection at 45 degrees."
Woody Allen, director of Manhattan, Midnight in Paris, Love and Death, Shadows and Fog, Radio Days, Bananas, Small Time Crooks, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Zelig, and Annie Hall, delivers Everything You Wanted to Know about Sex but Were Afraid to Ask. The storyline for this series was entertaining and fun to watch unfold but some plots were better than others.
"I will open the latch and get her snatch."
I've actually been watching a lot of Woody Allen movies lately and decided to search for his films on cable and DVR'd them as I found them. This is far from his best work but the stories were entertaining and fun to watch unfold. The acting was pretty good and most of the conclusions were predictable but this is worth a viewing despite not being an Allen classic.
"The sheep was under eighteen years old."
