While the main lure for audiences--Will Ferrell--is basically forgettable, Allen does compose one fascinating and witty look at the human mind and its own ability to depict events through our own sub-conscious preference.

Reminds us there is little to divide comedy from tragedy, and that neither comes exclusively. After all, the tears of sorrow and the tears of joy both come from the same place, and dampen a tissue with equal intensity.

Mitchell, in her dual role, gives a breakout performance (two of them, in fact).

It has great performances, snappy one-liners and a likeably tricksy structure, all wrapped up in an affirmative antidote to life's daunting complexities. Welcome back, Woody.

Happy proof that news of Allen's artistic death has been much exaggerated.

Clever, if not cutting-edge, Woody Allen's "Melinda and Melinda" examines whether we interpet life as a comedy or tragedy.

For those who are still willing to give Woody the benefit of the doubt, 'Melinda' offers a bit of reassurance that the writer-director hasn't completely lost his touch.

Ferrell is a particular standout in the typical Woody part, combining his own awkward comic sensibility with Allen's customary neuroses
