    Depois de ir e voltar da europa, Anything Else é um quase pastelão da série de filmes medianos de Woody Allen.

    "We just saw Elaine Stritch on Broadway, she was great! Wanna do some cocaine?" - Paula Chase (Stockard Channing)

    Even when Woody's off his game, he's still got it. There are some damn-near classic Woody lines in this film. For example:

    Amanda (Christina Ricci): I've had a crush on you since we met. Couldn't you tell, the way I was ignoring you?
    Jerry Falk (Jason Biggs): Well, there was something compelling about your apathy.

    The problem with the movie is…

    My second favorite Woody Allen film.

    I absolutely adore this film! The real message of the film is the one message out of all of Allen's work that I can relate to the most...you can and should only rely on yourself. Trust in yourself that you know what will make you truly happy in life and go for it...take a chance every now and then...leave everything in your life that you spent what could be years working on behind and…

    Not the worst Woody ever, and charming in parts, but the Christina Ricci character is so one-note and Jason Biggs’ character so spineless that it gets a little tiresome.

    Interesting Woody Allen film this one is. It's funny, it's cold, it's a nightmare. Biggs plays a great if naive guy while Ricci plays the most selfish crazy in-grating female to ever walk the earth.

    You can't help but feel bad for Biggs and laugh at him too. A little overlong, a little to uncomfortable but still a pretty decent film that so far has gotten better with every watch (3 times so far). Maybe next time I'll bump the rating up a bit? Who knows...

    70/100

    A bit difficult to accept Jason Biggs as, basically, a young Woody Allen, especially in something so relative to Allen's own "Annie Hall". However, Biggs can be uncomfortable to watch because he is genuinely so.
    This entry in the expansive filmography of Woody Allen has always seemed like it would fall to the lower end, but I was surprised. If anything, it's some of the best camerawork of his films, apparently being only the second to "Manhattan" to shoot in anamorphic widescreen.

    It's like DreamWorks had the distinction of a Woody Allen movie and they wrapped it for the American Pie mob, as if they'd been on the right track with how their preceding projects with Woody turned out profit-wise. Jason Biggs is one of the very least of the leads to play the "Woody role," but this devalued effort eschews the typical drawbacks of comedies about sex and love among young people and gains impact from the supporting work by Stockard Channing and Danny DeVito.

    "I can't believe I'm in love with a smoker."

    It isn't a very competitive field, but this is still Woody's best film of the noughties. If you haven't heard of it, that might be because it went direct-to-video in Britain, where many of Allen's most fervent yet apparently stingy admirers ply their trade. (So did Scoop, incidentally, which is also conspicuously missing from most critics' discussion of Allen's work.)

    It's essentially an Annie Hall update, featuring Allen's youngest ever leads,…

    Uno no pensaría que pudiera existir una película de Woody Allen que sea mala, y, no es que esta película lo sea; lo que pasa es que cuando uno ve una película del Sr. Allen se genera cierta expectativa y en esta peculiar ocasión resultó que mis expectativas no se vieron satisfechas.
    Diálogos que dejan mucho que desear, el personaje femenino mas insoportable (y borderline misógino también) que he visto en años y un protagonista que jamás asume su rol,…

    This is probably the weirdest Woody Allen film I have seen, and that's quite a statement considering the amount of genre-hopping the veteran has done. It's not weird because of its plot. It's weird because there isn't much of a plot to begin with. It feels less like a film and more like a screenplay read aloud amidst the backdrop of a movie set. The dialogue is snappy and it's funny enough despite the pseudo-intellectual overtones, but the film has…

    For my money this is Allen's second best film of the 00s, right behind Match Point, and one of my favorites from his entire filmography. Admitting this apparently makes me insane but what can I say? It makes me laugh and is a lights out coming of age story. Sure, there are shades of his previous films all over this but why that's such a sticking point with many is beyond me. It's hardly the first time Woody's back catalog…
