I enjoy almost all of Allen's films so it's easier to list the ones I DIDN'T like...

Celebrity was a weak one for me, altho it had moments (Tim Roth was great)

didnt care for Interiors or Purple Rose of Cairo. most of the ones that fall to the bottom are his Mia Farrow films.

Diane Keaton=Sean Connery, Mia Farrow=Roger Moore, Scarlett J=Pierce Brosnan

emphatic YES! C & M is one of the great contemplative Hitchcockian (ROPE-ish) WA films. i wouldn't watch it back to back with say, INTERIORS, unless you are waiting for an overdose of painkillers to fade your consciousness to black with finality.

I have to say that Broadway Danny Rose is my favorite, I'm kind of surprised that no one else mentioned it. I know it's not up there with a lot of his other films, but I think this has some of the best shots Ive seen in a Woody Allen movie. The chase scenes are great, the mobster brothers, everything, it's hilarious and vastly underrated IMHO.

That's hilarious! Would that mean Alan Alda and Will Ferrell would be "Bond Girls"?

I forgot to mention Sweet and Lowdown. I love Sean Penn and I thought he did a great job as an obnoxious Django-inspired musician. Some nice music and Uma Thurman is just totally hot.

Good call.

Marge: Did anyone see that new Woodsy Allen movie?
Ned: You know, I like his films except for that nervous fellow that's always in them.


I didn't mind Bananas but Allen has never really done it for me. Like someone (manton I think?) said earlier, same movie a dozen times.

I dont have a problem with that. I've always felt that some artists only have a limited amount of movies/songs/paintings/etc in them and they tend to express it over and over in different manifestations of the same thing. I think that Allen realizes this, to his credit, and does what he knows rather than go off on unknown tangents. When I go to see a Woody Allen film, I am expecting existentialist angst, and I always get it.

I forgot about 'Bullets Over Broadway'. Terrific. Jim Broadbent and Dianne Weist are fantastic. Cusak a tad annoying.

I dig, but sometimes it's nice to be surprised.

You didn't like match point? That was a pretty big departure for him. Someone knocked it earlier but I thought it was great.

I've seen probably six Woody Allen movies in my life, and to be honest, I can't remember any of them besides Mighty Aphrodite. So I guess that will have to be my favorite. It's not that they are bad, because if they were bad, I would probably remember them. I don't know why he never clicked with me. Maybe its an east coast thing. The main reason I remember Mighty Aphrodite is because it has three of my top 100 favorite actors in it. Peter Weller, F. Murray Abraham, and Jack Warden. I think it might have also been the first movie I saw with Mira Sorvino in it, followed closely by Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion, Mimic, and The Replacement Killers. I think I gave up on her after that.

The first movie I saw Mira Sorvino in was Quiz Show. I was moved.

I saw Quiz Show a few months ago and I can't even remember seeing her in it.

TS, Mighty Aphrodite wasn't one of his better movies.
