Woody Allen's Take the Money and Run has some very funny moments, and you'll laugh a lot, but in the last analysis it isn't a very funny movie.

A few good laughs in an 85-minute film do not a comedy make.

Allen has made a movie that is, in effect, a feature-length, two-reel comedy -- something very special and eccentric and funny.

This good natured, episodic spoof of gangster movies was Woody Allen's first film as a director.

Whatever its genesis, Allen's scraggly rhetoric evolved into the dominant comic style of the 70s.

Rosenblum even suggested the use of New Orleans jazz on the soundtrack, which became a staple of future Allen projects.

It has plenty of hilarious jokes and concepts, like the ventriloquists' dummies at prison visiting time, and the return home from a chaingang break with five shackled cons in tow.
May 10, 2013
Woody Allen's first directorial achievement is a frequently hilarious, sometimes misfiring satire of crime movies.
