A quirky and enjoyable rom-com that has Woody Allen stamped all over it.

Dull As ...By a customer , 15 Jul 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]So boring and predictable. Had I not gone with a couple of people to see it, I would have walked out quite early on. A very wooden film.

why can't i rate it zero stars?By uknoimright (4 reviews) , 17 Jun 2013never before have i so cursed my sensory perception - if only this film had fallen in a wood then no one would have heard it or seen it.
Dodgy title - good movie.By Loopgrinder (132 reviews) , 06 Jun 2013Hard to understand why there are so many bad reviews here for this excellent relationship movie. The worst thing about it is the title, which until I realised it was a Woody Allen film, almost made me skip past it. Wooden acting? You've got to be kidding! Josh Brolin is as good as he usually is, as is Naomi Watts. But most stunning of all is Anthony Hopkins for once being worth the hype. He plays the uncomfortableness of his situation with such conviction it's hard not to feel sorry for the silly old duffer. Don't believe everything you read. Give this a go if you like Allen's films or if you like films like Ang Lee's classic 'Ice Storm'.
Thoroughly enjoyableBy a customer , 02 Jun 2013Brilliant film. Wonderful acting. The ending leaves you using your imagination - if you have one! Love Woody Allen films. Recommended to all who appreciate quality films. At least the dialect was clear, and could be understood - not like most of the trashy films out today.
A good watch!By duduanna (12 reviews) , 30 May 2013Interesting little peep into all of these peoples lives who are intertwined by their daily obligations to each other but each possessing frustrations and selfish hopes for their futures. It begins and ends with the central character who is gullible but determined to achieve happiness. Good casting !
Rom Com?By DaniCalifornia (1 review) , 28 May 2013Can it be classed as a Rom Com when all it does is portray relationships no one would ever want to be in and doesn't make you laugh once? The story never gets going and to be honest, while the ending is a terrible non-ending that seems to stop half way through the story, I wasn't too bothered about this, I was just happy it was over.
