Review by Curtis Strickland (12/97)

Release: 1997, Fine Line
Starring: Woody Allen, Billy Crystal, Demi Moore, Robin Williams, Judy Davis, Elisabeth Shue, Kirstie Alley, Mariel Hemingway, Amy Irving, Julie Kavner, Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Director: Woody Allen
MPAA Rating: [R] language, sexuality
Genre: Dark Comedy


The line between reality and fiction is blurred when writer Harry Block (Allen) is haunted by the characters he creates, who are obvious knock-offs of people he knows in real life. All wackiness ensues when some of his friends and lovers don't appreciate being made into characters in his novels.


A strong, all star cast full of comic power and potential. A fun, darkly humorous look at the creative process of writing. A semi-new spin on the standard Woody Allen story finds his close acquaintences trying to kill him this time.


More of the same old, same old from writer/director Woody Allen. How many times do we have to watch him play a crazy, neurotic, snivelling weasel? As usual, a large cast full of cameo appearances entertains the audience through a dull, been there, done that a million times since the seventies story. Allen's whiny, "dysfunctional neurotic New York Jew" archetype is more redundant than anything comedian Richard Lewis obsessively dwells upon, making even one-trick pony John Grisham look like the most inventive writer in history.

Rating: 6 out of 10 (0=Abysmal, 5=Average, 10=Excellent)
