Woody's most under-rated filmBy JimmyConway from London , 24 Mar 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This film is a hidden gem amonst Woody Allen's prolific output. The basic premise is that Allen's wife played by Diane Keaton is suspcious of her neighbour after his wife dies. She thinks that he had something to do with her murder and begins an amateur investigation along with the reluctant Allen. A bit like Rear Window with lots of jokes.
The dynamic between Allen and Keaton is a joy to watch, they have a great rapport and make a great husband and wife. Some of the writing and situations are so good you don't fully appreciate them till a 2nd viewing.
Alan Alda and Anjelica Houston also offer excellent support, if you love Woody Allen films you will really enjoy this one.

One of Allen's best!By Lucullus (82 reviews) , 09 Oct 2013This is Allen at his best. Must rank up there with Manhattan as one of Woody Allen's great movies. The story is simple, charming and funny. All the actors are first class especially Diane Keaton as the wife caught up in the mystery of what she thinks is going on and Alan Alda as the friend (and admirer) more than happy to fuel the excitable Keaton with her beliefs. Allen too is on top form as the bumbling husband being drag along on a journey that at first holds no interest for him. There is one aspect of this film that, for me, really puts it up there. Woody Allen's direction is just first rate. It is one of those rare movies that you almost forget that you are watching through a camera. The direction and fluidity with which each scene is filmed is so smooth that it is effortless to watch and makes it even more enjoyable. All involved should be proud of the lack of editing with numerous scenes seemingly done in one act. There is a particular scene in a restaurant where the five friends are dining and talking and the camera slowly moves around them almost like it is filming a real group while their interaction seems flawless and so real. I hadn't seen this movie since its release but it did not fail to live up to my memories of it. Excellent stuff from all involved.
It's Woody Allen, need I say more?By MzBizkitz (67 reviews) , 21 Apr 2013I love Woody Allen films so I'm only going to give a biased review here, just watch it for something a bit different.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI just loved it, saw by accident and couldn't wait to see it. Woody Allen and Diane Keaton made me laugh so much, when she phones and say's she is in the man's flat Woody Allen goes mad. When she sees the woman who is supposed to be dead and no one believes her it's so funny. I think if you like Woody Allen then you will love this film.
He still got itBy Jameseyboy (2 reviews) , 14 May 2012Classic Woody Allen if I ever saw it, beautiful to see Diane Keaton back as his side , very reminiscent of their glory days in the 70's. Perhaps underrated cause of what was happening to him at the time but who cares, it's a great film, just enjoy some classic cinema!
Funny and lovely!By a customer , 12 May 2012Normal people solving a murder. But is it really a murder or just imagination? Clever and funny. Nice little love story on the side. Very Woody Allen like conversations. Enjoyed it!
