Allen's Best!

This was the best movie Woody made from the time when he was still making great movies! It centers on Woody's on and off relationship with the ditzy Annie. Probably the movie that Seinfied got the humor for his show from! There are scenes like Woody standing in line for a movie that some loudmouth is explaining the meaning of to a bunch of women. When Woody disagrees with the man the man says that he should know because he teaches a college course about the movie to which Woody replies by bringing foward the movie's director. The director then tells the man he has no clue as to what the movie is about!

Another involves Michael Moriarity as Annie's wierd brother. He tells Woody that he fantasizes about wrecking his car when he is driving. Sure enough the next scene has Moriarity driving Annie and Woody home and Woody has this terrified expression on his face as Moriarity is driving.

There are so many more of these types of hilarious scenes! This is a great film to own so you could memorize the lines.

As I recall he brings our Marshall McLuhan author of "The Medium is the Message" from behind a billboard to agree with him. Funny either way. Its been so long though since I've seen this that I didn't even realize that Moriarity was in this and he's long since become one of my favorite actors!

I loved that specific scene because I did have a few pompous teachers in my college days and I would have loved to pull an expert out of the hallway to refute some of their points.

About this movie

Wiki

One of the greatest romantic comedies of all time, and one of Woody Allen’s best movies. Neurotic stand-up comic Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) becomes involved with the ditzy but beautiful Annie (Diane Keaton) and the film chronicles their turbulent and ultimately doomed relationship. The movie is filled with wonderful scenes and dialogue. Go to the Internet Movie Database entry at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075686/quotes for some great quotes from the film. Near the end of the movie, when Alvy admits the relationship is doomed he says, “A relationship, I think, is like a shark. You know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.”
