Woody Allen‘s ―You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger‖ follows a pair of married couples, Alfie (Anthony Hopkins) and Helena (Gemma Jones), and their daughter Sally (Naomi Watts) and husband Roy (Josh Brolin), as their passions, ambitions, and anxieties lead them into trouble and out of their minds. After Alfie leaves Helena to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call girl named Charmaine (Lucy Punch), Helena abandons rationality and surrenders her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller. Unhappy in her marriage, Sally develops a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss, Greg (Antonio Banderas), while Roy, a novelist nervously awaiting the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Freida Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window. Despite these characters‘ attempts to dodge their problems with pipe dreams and impracticable plans, their efforts lead only to heartache, irrationality, and perilous hot water. Taking its title from the prediction fortune tellers use to beguile their marks, ―You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, illustrates with wry humor how easy it is for our illusions to make fools of us all. (Available in 3.0 audio per director's creative intent)

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's a highbrow romantic farce, without the laughs.
Rotten: Woody Allen cranks out another formulaic interweave of romantic crushes, with old jazz on the soundtrack to supply some artificial gaiety.
Fresh: Classic Woody -- an ensemble cast of brilliant actors, a timeless story that could be set virtually anywhere and crisp writing and direction that neither lollygags or rushes.
Fresh: At once a cynical examination of infidelity and a sweet love story that rewards good people, Stranger is thoroughly entertaining ... and Allen's best film since Crimes and Misdemeanors.
A good movie
The cast on this movies is great, and the story is a thrilling and fun. Not Woody Allan's best work but is worth the time watching!
Better talk about than to watch
Allen is always interesting but this film leaves one wanting. Hate the narrator. Just show the story. As usual, great cast.
