Moments of Pure Slapstick Make This a Classic,
This review is from: Play It Again, Sam [VHS] (VHS Tape)
ALthough this film has many sentimental, moving moments (all centred on Allen's dilemma concerning his best pal's wife), this is cleverly countered with the hilarious attempts by Allen to appear cool and debonaire in front of his many 'dates'.
The scene which has me in stitches everytime I see it is the one set in Allen's flat when he is presented with his first blind date by his match-making friends. The film also contains many scenes where Allen is able to show off his genius for comic timing such as in the art gallery or the disco when he attempts to pick up total strangers.
If you want a film which forces you to feel sympathy for the main character one minute and have you rolling around in the next then this is the one.
