4.0 out of 5 stars Way ahead of it's time
This has got to be Woody Allen's daftest and arguably funniest film, but it's also brilliantly clever and was far ahead of it's time. There are echoes of 'Sleeper' in a myriad of films even today (The Matrix for example), and the 'deeper' issues raised by the film are as relevant today as they were back in '73. America in 2173 is a police-state, where every citizen is...

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% positive value, 5 Oct. 2014

One of his top 3 movies in my opinion. Very inetresting on many points of view: the sci-fi idea of our future, the fantastic architecture from the 60's that you admire throughout the movie, the ideas of genetic manipulation to extend life, BIG Brother, etc.

Some people consider this a great satire on modern life & insight into the future. I thought it was just a straight documentary. ---- 12 more words12 more words12 more words12 more words12 more words12 more words

In parts a homage to the silent greats of comedy and in others a gentle mocking of trendy causes. Still makes me laugh after all the times I have seen it.

Very funny early Woody Allen film. His witty comments really good. Also liked the tribute to silent films, slapstick in the Marx Brothers style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny early Woody Allen, 10 July 2007

This is perhaps the best of Woody Allens early films. Its pure slapstick from beginning to end with some side-splitting moments. Woody plays Miles Monroe a shop-keeper who is woken from a frozen state 200 years in the future. The initial scenes after Miles is woken clearly inspired Mike Myers for the first Austin Powers film as this later film contains a scene that is very similar. Diane Keaton as usual is very good as Luna who helps Miles in his attempts to overthrow an authoritarian government.

The rest of the film maintains an inspired level of humour with the usual quota of great one-liners such as:

Luna: "It's hard to believe that you haven't had sex for 200 years."
Miles: "204, if you count my marriage."

The soundtrack features Woody Allen playing Clarinet with a traditional Jazz band which adds a character all of its own to the film. In fact at times the film is reminisent of an early silent comedy because of this, rather than a 1970's movie.

Great stuff and even if you're not a fan of Woody Allen you'll still probably enjoy this.

What can I say? It's just very, very funny. Woddy Allen, for all his faults, is a great actor. You'll love it.
