I generally love Woody Allen's stuff and had heard of MMM for many years but I did not enjoy it that much when I watched it at last. Very mumbled and confused conversation which may emulate life but is hard to listen to.

After what seems like an eternity MMM is released on region 2 format. This relatively light slice of Woody New York farce is, perhaps, not his greatest artistic achievement- that accolade may be more appropriate for the likes of Annie Hall, Manhattan and Stardust Memories. That said I have always found it one of his most enjoyable films; the pairing of Allen and Keaton after so many years is a joy to watch, the chemistry between them as potent as in the mid-70's. Indeed, one can be thankful the role was not instead taken by the increasingly dour and dowdy Mia Farrow for whom it was slated (and whose divorce from Allen, along with the scandal that followed Woody's relationship with adopted daughter Soon Yi largely overshadowed the film itself). The plot -recycled from Annie Hall outtakes- revolves around Allen and Keaton's affectionately bickering middle aged couple. On the death of a recently moved-in neighbour, Keaton develops increasingly wild theories that she was murdered by her stamp collecting husband and with a typically reluctant Woody in tow, set out to prove it. As usual, the film is stuffed full of classic one liners, while the hand-held camera style (used to such great effect in Allen's previous effort "Husbands and Wives") and fast-paced direction produce a marvellously tense atmosphere. The supporting turns from Allen regulars Angelica Huston and Alan Alda are also superb. Top this off with a fantastic "hall of mirrors" finale (complete with snippets of Orson Welles' "The Lady from Shanghi") and you have a classic Allen movie. I don't know, maybe it is up there with his best....

This is one of the funnies movies I have ever seen.
Woody Allen and Diane Keaton make one of the best on-screen pair ever, they are a genuine couple of neurotics here, they are so hilarious.
The live in a NY apartment, he has a very good friend in Anjelica Huston, she has Alan Alda. One night they meet an older couple on the elevator, they live on the same floor. They begin chatting and end up speding the whole night at their place, much to Woody's displeasure, as he planned to watch some classic on tv.
Well, the next day the wife dies and Diane, after some strange clues, begins to think the husband might have killed her, and that she might even have faked her own death. Well, don't let me spoil it for you.
Basically the 4 of them try to prove it and end up in dangerous, and suspense-ful situations. All the while spitting hilarious one-liners and great music, the jazzy 20s music you usually hear in WA's movies. Especially priceless the sequence when the husband heads for the incenerators on one of the NY bridges with that great music I can never remember what it is, but it is also used in the Bette Midler movie "Big Business", is played.
Get it, it's hilarious, I've seen it almost ten times now!

I love this movie - a great comedy and a fantastic mystery to boot. The premise is simple, a bored wife in her mid-50s becomes suspicious when her newly-acquainted neighbour dies suddenly. What follows is a delightful mix of snooping, cynicism, laughs and genuine thrills. Diane Keaton is Carol, a would-be restaurateur who senses something is not right with the explanation of her neighbour, Mrs House's death. Carol enjoys dangling the romantic attentions of friend and would-be business partner Ted (Alan Alda) over husband Larry, using this fact to provoke jealousy or action. Woody Allen is Larry, a quiet book editor who is sceptical and exasperated by his wife's amateur sleuthing but eventually joins in due to jealousy and some words of wisdom from slinky author Marsha (Anjelica Huston). Larry's cynicism and horror at his Carol's antics are hilarious while the mid-movie revelation is just comic genius. The point where Larry and Carol are united in their view of the case could have turned the plot into a generic stalemate but then the story breaks through leading to the hilarious moment when, after Marsha has impressed BOTH Larry and Ted with her views on the murder, Carol jealously admonishes them for being taken with Marsha and losing her position of lead "detective". The climax is both genuinely thrilling and hilarious with unexpected revelations and an unlikely hero. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to view a great movie, be it rainy day or not.

This is not Woody Allen's most sophisticated film but certainly, in my opinion, his most enjoyable.Both Allen and Keaton have a ball playing bored husband and wife Carol and Larry Lipton who stumble across the suspected murder of a neighbour and from that point on comes some of Allen's funniest scenes and greatest one liners.The supporting cast is great with Alan Alda and Anjelica both playing great turns,the locations are all New York as you would expect and there is a superb jazzy score - Benny Goodman, Dave Brubeck amongst others which just adds to the already highly enjoyable mix.
But really this is Keaton and Allen' show and they are superb.How many actresses can make Allen look like he's the straight guy ? Diane Keaton can that's for sure.The chemistry between the two is pure magic. This is a film that you can watch over and over again and get as much enjoyment from each viewing.
Hope you enjoy it as much as i have.
