About the Movie
Writer-director-actor Woody Allen is in prime form in this celebrated comedy in which he portrays a neurotic, highly insecure and indecisive comedy writer who falls head over heels in love with a naive small-town "girl" (Diane Keaton) who wants to be a singer. The opening rounds of their relationship involve every romantic cliche (hilariously re-created by Allen). Keaton's horrified parents snub the nerd-ish city slicker who loves their daughter, but they move in together, anyway. Insecure Allen is so sure he will lose Keaton that he interprets her every move as rejection. As Keaton's self-confidence grows, Allen's progressively fades. Keaton debuts as a singer, is "discovered" by a record tycoon and agrees to move to Hollywood and live with him. Now Allen has really lost her.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: There will be discussion about what points in the film coincide with the lives of its two stars, but this, I think, is to detract from and trivialize the achievement of the film, which, at last, puts Woody in the league with the best directors we have.
Fresh: Personal as the story he is telling may be, what separates this film from Allen's own past work and most other recent comedy is its general believability.
Fresh: A touching and hilarious love story that is Allen's most three-dimensional film to date.
Fresh: Woody Allen fans will buy it 100%. Never before has the diminutive comedian been so urbane, so open - so funny. And with lovely Diane Keaton as consort, it becomes well-nigh irresistible (especially if you find Keaton as well-nigh irresistible as I do).
Annie Hall, what a fabulous film. I watched this for the first time a few years ago on VHS and didn't understand it a bit but it nonetheless intrigued me. Being a bit older and having gone through the downs and ups of relationships like theirs i can truely comprehend how little or zero romantic gestures and moments make up realistic peoples relationships. Which, is both the beauty and the beast of life.
one of the best romantic comedies ever made
Great writing, directing, acting! This film is hilarious, sweet, sad, and entertaining. I highly recommend it to anyone!
this was a fabulous movie which everyone, young and old, should buy.
