From Amazon.co.uk

A collection of vignettes, loosely based on the book by Dr. David Rueben, written and directed by Woody Allen, Everything contains some very funny moments. It's easy to forget that the cerebral Allen excelled at the type of broad, Catskill, dirty jokes and visual gags that run amok here. It's also remarkable how dirty this 1972 movie really was--bestiality, exposure, perversion and S&M get their moments to shine. The Woody Allen here, who appears in many of the sketches, is a portent of the seedy old Allen of Deconstructing Harry. Although the final bit, which takes place inside a man's body during a very hot date, is hilarious, most of Everything feels like the screen adaptation of a 70's bathroom joke book. Still, a must for Allen fans. --Keith Simanton

I`ll admit it has been some time since I saw this film , but remember most of it. I enjoy Woody Allen`s earlier works before he tried to become a social commentator, and just took the 'p' out of everything. Gene Wilder`s 'sheep' scenes still make me want to laugh and also cringe at he same time. The last episode about the guy on the first date (often referred to as the sperm sketch) is amongst Allens finest work. Ive even laughed at it when played on the radio, so it doesnt rely on visual gags, although there are several, and I`d put this amongst my favourite pieces of comic writing, vying with 'Michaelangelo and The Pope sketch about the Last Supper' for the top spot.
Enjoy, I forgot to check what rating it is, but I`d probably feel happy watching with my teenage kids (even if just to see them get uncomfortable) and if you recognise yourself in any of the scenes, I know a good counsellor.

I had put off watching this film for a while because the box didn't look all that exciting, but the film is very entertaining. All the vignettes range between brilliantly funny and highly imaginative, with the two often not coinciding, at their zenith. For instance, the transvestite story made me laugh out loud, whereas the final sketch representing the inside of the man's body is undeniably brilliant and zany - like Fellini crossed with the look of A Clockwork Orange - but actually made me laugh less. The first scene is historical and stars Lynn Redgrave in a very funny mock-up of 15th century speech, with Allen as the Court Fool keen to unlock her chastity belt. The sequence with the escaped breast is also unprecedented. But the best of all, for me, concerns Gene Wilder as a doctor who falls in love with a sheep - I thought this was absolutely inspired right from the first moment. The tone is really very well handled and manages to convey a comic vision of real depth. You can feel Allen's signature on it as surely as in Annie Hall or Manhattan. The film is really just a montage but the level of invention is quite astonishing and suggests a comparison with Pasolini's Decameron, but with added derangement.

Format: DVD
Woody Allen has a unique mind and in this movie we get an insight into his rare and unorthodox comic genius. This short movie (84 minutes) is based around 6 brief stories. Each explores a controversial aspect of sexuality and, as well as directing and writing the screenplay, Woody Allen also appears in 4 of the offerings (as a Medieval court jester who gets caught in the Queen's chastity belt, an Italian businessman with a frigid wife, a writer/researcher who gets caught up in bizarre experiments and, last but not least, as a sperm who plays a harmonica while waiting for his chance to parachute out and become a life). Bizarre? Yes. Funny? Definitely. Despite the subject matter, this is quick-witted, intellectual humour for the more open minded.

Also starring Gene Wilder (as an eminent doctor who falls for a sheep) and Burt Reynolds (as a brain cell), 'Everything ...' is an entertaining and madcap movie that no doubt raised a few shackles when first released in 1972. This is very politically incorrect at times (for example, the Rabbi scene on the game show); so Allen should be lauded not only for his humorous film-making but also his willingness to challenge the boundaries of taste and decency.

A collection of sketches and short stories that tells you as the title suggests everything you always wanted to know about sex. One of Woody Allen's early films, it's a bit hit and miss in places but when it works it works very well with the best stories including Woody Allen as a court jester obsessed with the queen and her chastity belt, Gene Wilder as a doctor who falls hopelessy in love with a sheep being the best of the bunch, completely ridiculous but very funny with Gene Wilder at his best, a bizzare twisted and very funny game show called what's my perversion? a horror spoof starring Woody Allen and last but not least Woody Allen again this time as a nervous sperm which also sees an appearance by Burt Reynolds. It may not be to all tastes and some of it has dated but is still a must watch for Woody Allen fans.

The movie is a summary of Woody Allen's ironic way of dealing with hot and delicate matters. He once more proves to be a great genius, sharp and funny, but not rude or "bad-tasted"... simply Woody!

And succeeds ! This early example of Woody Allen's genius has been somewhat superceded by his later efforts but still remains fresh and frequently hilarious. The jokes come thick and fast, some verging a little on the puerile side but the bestiality sketch and the sperms are products of sheer brilliance. An enjoyable, if not great, Allen film and a worthy addition to any collector's stockpile.

This film is over 40 years old now and it looks it. The quality of the film is not brilliant but maybe that's because it was a budget 4 film package that I bought? Whilst the ideas for the sketches are good, some are pretty awful to be honest. This is `titter' humour at best. I didn't laugh out loud once, but I did appreciate the work that went into each scene, even if it didn't quite work for me.
It comes across as overly slapstick and from a bygone age. Frankly it's all rather tame and `Carry On' in style. It was probably very acceptable viewing at the time but these days it's pretty weak fare I have to say. My favourite piece was the Gene Wilder sketch, whose whimsical ways are always worth a watch. It was also nice to see Bert Reynolds in his prime.
In my view, the ideas were better than the execution and the scripts, though there were some classic, if well worn, one liners? Just like Woody's court jester role, I didn't find it overly funny!
