A really enjoyable comedy from Mr Allen. It is worth seeing the film just for the interaction of Woody Allen and Mira Sorvino - she deservedly won an oscar for this performance. The dialogue is funny and witty. Not so keen on Helena Bonham Carter's character I can't see why she would be with the Woody character in the first place but overall if you want a good laugh this is highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Steer clear - no stars, 18 April 2014
This film has no redeeming features whatsoever. To say it is a realistic portayal of 90's kids in America is an insult to my intelligence. I cannot remember the last time I disliked every single character in a film - even Chloe Sevigny's character has the chance of redemption and fails. There are no positives in character development or plot - I want my hour and a half back! If i could rate it no stars I would! It is up there with Killing Zoe for worst film of the last 20 years

Unfortunately there is way too little on The Smiths that is of any interest - lots of whining and whinging about Rough Trade and nothing about what is his most important contribution to popular culture - THE SONGS of The Smiths! There should have been much more on his writing relationship with Johnny. I… Read more
