Since dismissed as juvenile doodling by its author, the picture is actually an exercise in disjunctive radicalism, the word defeating the image.

Arguably Woody Allen's funniest movie.
May 10, 2013
What's Up, Tiger Lily? is cleverly devised, hinging on a well-developed sense of the absurd.

August 27, 2010
Gimmicky but intermittently funny, Woody Allen's feature directing debut is based on the retooling and redubbing of a minor Japanese thriller-actioner with American actors.

The production has one premise -- deliberately mismatched dialog -- which is sustained reasonably well through its brief running time.

It's so crazy that it works until halfway through, as that's when the gimmick becomes tiresome and the sophomoric one-liners lose their zip.

A jolly oddity.

Clever, but not nearly as funny as it thinks it is.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 24, 2003
A curio for major Allen fans. In an ideal world it would probably work best as an DVD extra on Take The Money And Run.
January 25, 2003
Tasteless but grandly funny experiment.
| Original Score: 4/5
February 21, 2001
Funny in places but not Allen's best writing... and its difficult to get beyond the conceit.

Like a magazine piece, it allows Allen distance from the project
