  • Woody Allen is a great writer, however, this had the feeling of same-old. He's repeated the same theme over and over again, in previous movies. I became bored with his exploration of boredom in marriage, and his quite obvious humour around his own Jewish version of neurosis. There's nothing new or exciting about this movie.

  • Woody at his "woodiest". Fans might like it but all I wished for was for them to stop talking - even though there were a few gems in the conversations. A good example of a dysfunctional couple and their friends, not one ever listened to the other. The occasional jazz soundtrack and some good scenes of New York were the highlights. At about an hour forty this film is 99 minutes to long.

  • The whole movie goes at a frenetic pace. But it is absolutely brilliant. As Woody Allen says in the film,"Life imitates art". Larry (Woody Allen) lives in a flat in a fancy apartment building; across the hall lives another couple: Mr and Mrs House. It looks like Mrs House dies of a heart attack. But she is seen alive and well, by chance, a few days later. Through extraordinarily complicated sleuthing it turns out there really was a murder. But the whole film is a tragicomedy a la Woody Allen at his best (as writer, director, and actor all at once). There is no depth to the story, but it is highly enjoyable. And the photography of New York as it really is (slums and all) is particulary well done.

  • Great film- kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time!!!! Woody Allen at his best!

  • Very drawn out
