Did You Know?
When Diane Keaton became the leading actress, Woody Allen rewrote the script and center the more comic side of the couple on her, admitting Keaton is funnier.
C'mon, you promised to sit through the hockey game without being bored,
I know, honey, I promised.
and I'll sit through the Wagner opera with you next week.
I already bought the earplugs.
Yeah, well, with your eyesight I'm surprised you can see the puck. Wow, yay, come on.
Allen is a comic genius!
This is the sort of movie I can watch over and over. In one word I would
it is clever. A combination of mystery, suspense, drama, and Allen's
ingenious humor, Manhattan Murder Mystery is my favorite Woody Allen
Perhaps my favorite movie – period. The plot was fresh, and having such
humor with suspense is just too good. Another quality I enjoy in this
is how Allen avoids an "over-polished" look. For instance, the scene where
neighbor in the hallway asks Paul about a rent increase. The actor appears
to stumble for the right word, but Allen let the scene go that way giving
a very natural look. The restaurant scenes also portray realism with
multiple conversations at one time; a quality I love in all of his movies.
This makes reviewing the movies interesting- you pick up something new
