    Jason Biggs como MAL imitador de Woody Allen que lo intenta demasiado y no consigue llegar. Woody Allen como un BUEN imitador de Woody Allen que, pese a que parezca escrita y dirigida sin mucho interés, hace algunas cosas bien, sobre todo cuando aparece él mismo en pantalla, recordándonos lo pobre que es la imitación de Biggs.
    De vez en cuando hasta es divertida, pero la química entre Christina Ricci y Biggs yo no la he visto. No la hay.…

    I'm not through with his filmography yet, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I am bound to be the ultimate Woody Allen apologist. A viewing of Curse of the Jade Scorpion should be in order to test this theory.

    Very enjoyable Woody Allen film, but one of his lesser works. Learned loads of new words.

    Anything Else is another typical Woody Allen romcom, with the usual insecure and neurotic main character, dealing with problems in a relationship.

    I think it was the first time that I felt so annoyed by a Woody Allen film. I’ve seen a lot of his films and I really like Woody’s work. The way he writes and how the simplicity of his stories can be so engaging and interesting to watch. This story is like many others that Woody has…

    "Women. Camus said that women are all that we're ever going to know of paradise on earth. In your case, Falk, there is a seminal joke that Henny Youngman used to tell that I think is perfect. It sums it up perfectly as far as you go:
    Guy comes into a doctor's office. He says, 'Doc, it hurts when I do this.' The doctor says, 'Don't do it.'
    Think about that.

    The general consensus on Jason Biggs here is that he was miscast, but I’m slightly hesitant to pull that card. Rather, for me, what doesn’t work is that the connection between he and Christina Ricci is less than present. Maybe they didn’t have any of that good ol’ fashioned acting chemistry, maybe neither of them had a handle on the screenplay or maybe—just maybe—the screenplay doesn’t do a great job of tracing the ups and downs of their romance convincingly.…

    Much better than I was anticipating. It's never great, nor bad, it's mostly okay but it is funny and there's substance there. Allen gives an excellent comedic performance but I thought Jason Biggs was miscast, he was completely overshadowed by Woody in their scenes together. The camerawork is pretty interesting and the dialogue is witty. Liked the fact that it felt like an update on Annie Hall, but this time it was pro LA and even anti Manhattan. Although Biggs breaking the fourth wall and talking to the camera would've been much more effective as voice over.

    Jason effin' Biggs doing the Woody Allen routine? Next to the real Woody? No can do.

    Nowhere near as bad as I expected it to be. Rough around the edges, and the story isn't quite up to snuff, yet there are still interesting remnants found throughout. Though, there is something oddly bizarre watching Jason Biggs give the leading performance in a Woody Allen film.

    Definitely made during Woody's unfocused period; there's no great moral or lesson other than once cray always cray so get out while the getting is good. Still funny, I found myself laughing out loud several times and Jason Biggs was uncharacteristically great and I know that Quentin Tarantino put this as one of his top 20 favorite films since 1992 if that's worth anything.

    Comedieta que no transmite nada. Lo único que se salva es Christina Ricci, buen papel de hormonas alteradas, en todos los sentidos.
