I was hoping for a little bit of fun and action like the first two. I was also hoping for a million $ job writing brief movie reviews. Unfortunately, neither of these things panned-out.
When did Woody Allen spit this one out? I can barely keep up with Woody Allen’s movies, and all I have to do is watch them… He has to actually make them. I frankly don’t know how he does this. Anyway, this one has all the usual hallmarks. It was just silly fun, that might actually make you think about things. Basically the movie follows a cast of characters who reverse roles as the movie progresses. At first, one has a life in chaos, and all the others are on the rise. By the end, that same one is doing well, and everyone else is in chaos. The fun part about it is that the stories are hardly cut-and-dry, and the plot is linear. You might think this is what’s going to happen, but it’s not really clear until the very end. It’s a rare movie that uses every frame to tell the story. This one does.
I have to wonder – how long does it take to reset that door-opening mechanism? Talk about completely impractical.
