Whatever Works

This movie didn't get great reviews, but I loved it. It is vintage Woody Allen, and Larry David is great in the role.

"Moron Doctors. Look at this limp, I never had a limp before."

That line got me.

Obviously, I loved this movie too, I had a smile and was giggling from this first scene to the last one (as Norm said, vintage Allen). I would think it doesn't jibe well with the "there must be 'something else'" crowd, so maybe to many people, it rubbed them the wrong way. We know Ebert is kind of "one of us" so his review is pretty much how I felt about it.

I was very pleased how this movie was a throwback to the good old days (reminded me a bit of Radio Days, Crimes and Misdemeanors and even Broadway Danny Rose - for no particular reason I guess), but then I was reading some reviews online and it seems he wrote the script in the 70's.

Woody Allen is a genius, I loved this movie.
