Woody Allens finest hour (and a half)By Noel Clay from Colchester, England , 08 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]For anyone who's ever hated himself, and wondered why ... watch Annie Hall.
Let's face it, regardless of flaws and inconsistencies, it's worth watching pretty much any Woody Allen movie just for the few classic one-liners that are bound to be in there. With Woody playing basically himself here, he delves into past loves, metaphysics and lobsters with more of those classic lines than you can shake a stick at.
Although I think generally Woody is infinitely more talented as a stand-up comedian than as a filmmaker, I admit that I do have something of a soft spot for 'Annie Hall'. Mostly it's just the sheer simplicity of the storyline that just allows Woody to go ahead and revel in his trademark self-deprecative, depressive humour -- constantly self-referencing, coming out with witty remarks and amusing sketches as only he can. Also, it's just so INVENTIVE. You get a real sense of a director who is simply improvising, almost like watching Woody himself on stage in front of a live audience. It's a quality that very few of his movies I've seen have possessed, and that's why I think this is easily his best work.

We need the eggsBy cmc1002 (32 reviews) , 13 Aug 2013I had high expectations about this film but sadly it failed to live up to them. There are some really great moments, such as Alvie's views on life, but I found it to be not funny enough to be comedy or heartfelt to be a romance, it just fell meekly in between the two.
Annie Hall: check!By D_angelo (5 reviews) , 29 Jul 2013Thought I would finally watch Annie Hall, because I have heard so much about it and it always makes it onto those lists of classics to watch. It was fine; quirky, interesting, and had some humorous parts. I do understand why people wouldn't like it, though.
1st period Woody AllenBy filmamateur (104 reviews) , 28 Jun 2013a classic and beautiful example of Allen's brilliance in dialogues writing, a love declaration to New York . if only he could have maintained that degree of excellence , today I can't enjoy any of his outings except may be 'Vicky...' for Javier Bardem THE ACTOR PER EXCELLENCE
Hideous characters, dull film.By Rach18 (3 reviews) , 07 May 2013This film had been highly recommended to me, and I have to say, I was thoroughly disappointed. What a load of self indulgent, dull claptrap. The characters are unpleasant and irritating and I found it a real challenge to watch the whole film. Over-rated to say the least.

Classic Allen comedyBy GMcG (13 reviews) from Chalfont St Peter , 04 Feb 2013A classic Woody Allen comedy and possibly one of his best. Very funny throughout with great performances from Allen and Keaton.
