rip the bandage off quickly..to avoid more pain.
the man who wrote and directed this..was one of the greatest writers and directors of all time. I do respect a number of stories he made. having said that.. if you have emma stone in two straight stories and can not make something really great..you are not that good anymore.
Annie Hall's Humor Fades with Passage of Time
When I was in college, I ran with a pack of friends who loved movies. We met up monthly at downtown theaters for new releases. Annie Hall was one of the zillion movies we saw back then. As a college student, I recall it being terribly funny. The passage of time has not been a friend to this film. It is not the brilliant relationship film we all thought it was when were 19 or 20. It's a bizarre look at two miserably moronic people who you'd probably never want to meet. Annie Hall shows up as pretentious, compulsive, and downright annoying. This, along with Allen's other films of this era, is a complete white-wash of the city of New York. There are no Blacks in this world. There are no Hispanics. There are no Asians. Everyone is a middle-class White whose problems are self-made and self-imposed. That need to create/invent problems is a sure sign that these characters live in a world of make-believe--one that the average person will never live in. Most people's relationship problems are real and cannot be solved with a quirky hat and mixed-up wardrobe from the thrift store. Just goes to show that lots of things that pass for groundbreaking really aren't. This film is a prime example. It just doesn't hold up well.

Woody Allen's comedy matured greatly with "Annie Hall" which won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1977 beating out "Star Wars". Allen starred with Diane Keaton, who won Best Actress playing Annie, and the two were a hit team going around New York and later Los Angeles with their show biz lives. "Annie Hall" was Allen's first deeper satire and it was successful to the extent of Oscar possibilities. Here Woody and Diane meet up with singer Paul Simon who invites them out to the west coast as he was impressed with her singing. From "Annie Hall" onward Allen's comedy went from slapstick to satire giving audiences more memorable characters to watch. Allen has won 5 Academy Awards....2 for "Annie Hall", 1 for "Purple Rose of Cairo", 1 for "Hannah and Her Sisters", and recently 1 for "Midnight In Paris". He seems to make one movie every year as his talent keeps going and going.
I Love Diane
- Vincent Lehotsky
Movie worth seeing over and over.If there"s one club that I don't want to belong to, is the one that the afore-commenter movie hater belongs to ...
Annie Hall is fabulous
- Charlie Taylor
A beautiful, interesting movie about young people living in New York. Funny and sad at the same time, and seen now it provides a poignant look at life in the 70s. I highly recommend it.
The Death of a Career
There really is no reason to watch this movie. It is bland, boring and confused. It only gained critical acclaim because of support from the feminist movement and Allen's previously sparkling reputation. This was perhaps the first case of a movie director and an actress winning awards because of political correctness. Annie Hall just isn't funny. Watching it is kind of like watching someone trying to stuff a ping pong ball up their nose. It's not entertainment and in the end quite pointless. Woody Allen's career died when he met Diane Keaton. Unfortunately, he failed to recognize it and continued to direct. Meanwhile, Keaton's acting is as good as her taste in clothing (Chico's-when the clothes are too tacky for even a thrift shop to sell).

One of the best love story's of the 70's, that famously beat "Star Wars" as the Best Picture of '77. A neurotic comic meets & ends a relationship with an aspiring singer. Keaton won the Best Actress Academy Award as the title character and while he didn't win for his performance, Allen won for directing & co-writing the screenplay. Unlike his previous, purely comedic films, "Annie" has more emotion & relevance. A fine film that shows that love, while absurd, is nessicary. I give it a 5/5.
Allen at his best
Simply put, this is Woody Allen's greatest film. Hilarious, sincere, and truthful, it's one of Allen's most personal films. I dare you not to laugh during the classic classroom scene.
- Cesar Barron
Deliriously entertaining and endlessly fascinating, this movie is easily Woody Allen's best movie
