These days, comedy beggars can't be choosers. Woody Allen is about all we've got. And Woody, please stay healthy.

Allen's investigation of a "cosmic screwing" registers Kubrickian sci-fi

Like most of Allen's movies, this one is better than the box-office receipts would indicate; it still looks good many years after it was shot.

As a stand-up routine it's a scream.

The mild comedy antics are zany and the sci-fi parody is mostly pleasant.

Plenty of one-liners, and it has the best banana-skin joke in film history.

Chaos is a bullet that rips through "Sleeper," which helps to make it the silly, freakish hit that it is.

Pound for pound and minute for minute, Sleeper may just have more laughs in it than any other Woody Allen movie.

The film is loaded with throwaway literacy and broad slapstick, and while it fumbles the end, the parade of verbal and visual amusement is pleasant as long as it lasts.

Sleeper is the closest Allen has come to classic slapstick-and-chase comedy, and he's good at it.

Slapstick is still alive in Allen's futuristic vision in which the auteur awakes to a world comically set 200 years in the future.
