Everyone Says I Love You
A New York girl sets her father up with a beautiful woman in a shaky marriage while her half sister gets engaged.
The most underrated movie Woody Allen ever made? Maybe, including by me, at least until today. I had some hazy memories of seeing this once in college and hating it—mostly because I thought the Woody Allen/Julia Roberts romance was dreadful. And I was right, to a point. But I missed the message of that subplot, which, like the rest of the charmingly fanciful musical (and so much of Allen's work), is about the gap between fantasy and reality. As Roberts’ character says in her final scene “I have seen my dream come true, and my fantasy no longer tortures me. I can live with it.” How much of this movie, about happily blended families and ex-husbands and wives with lovely,…
A.V. Club review. Even better than I remembered—a version of Radio Days in which the nostalgia is present-tense. Some would argue with me about whether it's the last of his films to flirt with greatness (I'll give Deconstructing Harry another shot at some point), but I think it's nearly irrefutable that he'd never again demonstrate this level of comic timing or lightness of touch.

Leave it to Woody Allen to make me fall in love with a musical. Technically it's the worst kind of musical too, the kind of musical with songs that do nothing for the plot. The make the story linger rather than drive it forward. The trick is that Allen does all of this by design. It seems to come off as an homage to classic musicals while simultaneously poking fun at them in a way that only Woody Allen could pull off.
My issue with most musicals (especially those with songs that do nothing for the plot) is that every time they break into song it just comes…
Officially just passed Annie Hall, becoming my favorite of Woody Allen's films.
I have been slowly working my way through Woody Allen’s filmography throughout the past year. I am coming down the home stretch and was beginning to fear that I ran out of good ones. Everyone Says I Love You was a bit of a surprise. I hadn’t heard much about it. Every so often, characters will break out into a lively musical number. Some of the numbers are really, really great. Allen has displayed great comedic timing over the years. This film is really funny and this is due to comedic timing. Allen times everything perfectly. The screenplay is filled with hilarious bits of dialogue. The films boasts a strong cast ranging everywhere from a young Natalie Portman to Alan…
TODOS DIZEM "EU TE AMO"
Novamente, Woody Allen consegue homenagear o cinema de uma forma memorável, e dando sua personalidade á características já existentes.É muito bacana ver os clássicos musicais, uma síntese entre a realidade e a fantasia, quase um conto de fadas. totalmente neurótico e, até certo ponto, pessimista.
Pessoas comuns cantando como tal, este fator faz as cenas atingirem uma naturalidade incomum, e acompanhadas das belas paisagens que o diretor de fotografia adora exibir, torna-se muito elegante e resgata aspectos do cinema, que nos dias atuais, estão se perdendo.
A Fotografia se torna muito interessante, ao observar a diferença que ela faz para desenvolver personagens. Ela consegue transitar entre as emoções e as locações apresentadas perfeitamente. Utilizando soluções…
"Everyone says I love you
The cop on the corner and the burglar too,
The preacher in the pulpit and the man in the pew says I love you."
A beautiful tribute to the Marx Brothers
There's a lot stupid here (the narrator) but WA does well to depict people as completely clueless and frantic. And his scene with Goldie at the end is enough to redeem most of the stuff I didn't like.

Un musical lleno de estrellas del cine en esta película muy jóvenes.
Delightful, despite its near-total lack of narrative cohesion. Basically just an excuse for the musical setpieces, which are somehow more affecting thanks to the actors' imprecision. This is one of Allen's movies where I'd kill to see the rough cut; nearly an hour of footage was cut during the final edit, including a subplot involving Liv Tyler.
What a wonderful title, right? It's become hard to watch Woody Allen movies, but this one is quite charming. Beyond the silly musical numbers (some of them quite wonderfully staged), the movie has nostalgia and bittersweetness written in its bones. 96 Woody dreaming of a man who has a loving, friendly relationship with his ex-wife has lots of connotations (which have only grown more complex, and perhaps darker, in time).
These pretzels are making me thirsty!
So there's a Republican joke in here that's so fucking good that it bumped the movie up a point in the final minute. [B+]
Have you ever wanted to hear Edward Norton sing? How about Drew Barrymore? Julia Roberts? Tim Roth? Woody Allen?
But you'll get the chance if you watch this musical comedy from Woody Allen. Even Natalie Portman sings a line (unfortunately. I love her, but as a 14 year old, this was not a good turn.) Best voice in the cast? Goldie Hawn. Hands down.
It's a musical in the tradition of old Hollywood, think a Rogers & Astaire movie with a big New York Jewish family, Woody Allen jokes, and a contemplation of why we love who we love, and you have this movie.
The star power in this movie is off the charts, but overall it just…
It's a very likeable mess. Could have done with more Alan Alda, but that's true of any film.
