Audience Reviews for Play It Again, Sam

  • Nov 29, 2012
    A brilliant character study with annoying but loveable characters. At times slow, but overall very sweet, humble and affecting.

    Woody Allen in a film (based on his hit Broadway play) about a guy who loves film but cannot reconcile the differences between reel life and real life. His wife has just left him and he can't seem to get a break insofar as a new relationship goes, but he does get advice - from film - well, from the Bogart he wishes he were. By the end the whole piece seems merely a contrivance that allows Woody the opportunity to recite those iconic words from the end of Casablanca and little more than that.

    A great little Woody Allen gem. While a little over the top in some scenes, Allen displays an uncanny knack for physical humor. Not only did this movie provide some really hearty laughs, but it also gives us a glimpse into the powerful chemistry that Keaton & Allen have on screen and would utilize in future pictures. It also works as a beautiful love letter to film, an idea he would explore further in his own film The Purple Rose of Cairo. It is funny, affectionate, and an absolute joy to experience.

    Here Woody Allen remakes Casablanca Woody Allen style...so he plays a neurotic film buff who falls in love with his best friends wife. An imaginary Bogart is on hand to give advice, and the script is typically Allen. How much you'll enjoy it depends on how much you like Woody Allen.
