Audience Reviews for Neil Simon's 'Jake's Women'
Neil Simon and Woody Allen have similar dialogue patterns, similar humor, and similar themes. (I clearly love them both for the same thing.) This, more than almost any other Simon play, kept reminding of something Woody Allen would have directed. However, comparisons aside, I really enjoyed this film. I'd read the play before but watching it made all the difference - it seemed a much more unified story. Alan Alda is really great in the role of Jake. The dialogue is great - I laughed out loud quite a few times - and the overall story is a very touching one. When I read through all Neil Simon's plays, this one barely registered on my radar, but now I think I could call it one of my favorites of his.
