Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There is nothing to set this work apart from any number of mediocre Allen films.
Rotten: Anything Else isn't just the latest Woody Allen movie; it's also the smallest.
Rotten: Who knows what sense an American Pie-digging, Woodman-ignorant undergrad might make of the canned rhythms, the trilobite-era one-liners, the awkward declarative dialogue, the Catskills-resort frames of reference, the freshman philosophy.
Fresh: There's a lot of truth in the screenplay, and, combined with Ricci's top-notch, can't-take-your- eyes-off-her-when- she's-on-screen performance, this gives the movie a strong spine.
I've been waiting for YEARS to purchase this, and now I can! Thanks! Now let's just get Sleeper on here and I'll gladly fork over another 10 bucks.
Certainly not a great movie, but the performances from Danny DeVito and Christina Ricci are very noteworthy. Woody Allen wrote a dream comic role for Ricci--the nightmare girlfriend that one cannot help but love. She presents this role with aplomb that seems effortless but surely can't be.
