You know, unlike many critics, I’ve rather liked Woody Allen’s light-hearted comedies of the past handful of years. Melinda & Melinda was close to him returning to his old form, but this movie equally returns him to form and brings him to a whole new type of film. The writing of this film is rather inventive and clever. It found ways to break genre standards and surprise me along the way. When movies like this can no only pull off unexpected twists, but make them truly clever, I have to be impressed. As always, Allen has assembled a first rate cast, that hits their marks just right. I can’t really compliment too much without giving away more of the movie than I’d want to. The one thing I will complain about is the music usage in the film. Allen uses his typical scratchy, ancient jazz music. In pretty much all his other films, it fits just fine. It doesn’t work in this movie in the slightest. It feels VERY out of place.
