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.

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!
A classic with no shortage of inspirationBy RichPickings (167 reviews) from 'kin Bruges , 26 Apr 2012Go on then. Mid period, the title of the film is a brand identity itself and expectations are enthusiastically fulfilled.
Woody is in his stride and the cast are all plainly enjoying the ride. Allen Alder just looks like great company and Anjelica Huston rocks it with style and bite. Diane Keaton's late arrival at the party feeds into the life escaping art scenario, uncannily. At one point Allen's character slams the phone down yelling 'excuse me, my marriage is falling apart here..', his real life and screen relationship with Mia Farrow having just disintegrated.
Keaton is a superb stand in and everyone keeps on smiling as Allen's ego slips comfortably into overdrive. Some characteristic add lib repartee makes the film worthwhile on its own.
The editing is its big fault, with even these actors given too much free wheeling to do, unforgivably an inspired plot manages to ramble, even by the standards of its day.
Super ingredients win out, its quintessential moments created by a dream team, doing what they do best.
