the OUT -OF- TOWNERS (1970) is good!

 I seen it several times- the movie with Jack Lemon and Sandy Dennis and their on a business trip to NYC.
That was kinda a mix between high and low. It's hilarious!

welcome to the loony bin,fox!
   have you see " midsummer night's sex comedy","manhattan murder mystery" and "shadows and fog" ? those are my top 3 for woody allen, i've watched  them at least 20 times.

I have seen all three, and they're all good in their own right, but don't quite have that polish as say Annie Hall or Sleeper for example. That said "Manhatten Murder Mystery" was great fun

valid point, and i think that's part of the reason i like them so much. mind you, i love annie hall,and hannah and her sisters, and stardust memories,etc... but they ARE polished. sometimes that just ..bugs me.

Well I might just give "Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy", "Shadows and Fog" , "Hannah and her Sisters", "Stardust Memories" etc. another try soon. Critics seem to think that his Millennial output has been pretty average, and that some of his more serious films are far too anal, self-indulgent and not very accessible.

But there are some - like Annie Hall, Manhatten and Crimes & Misdemeanours - that have that cross-over appeal: light comedy with some mild drama mixed in, and those are the films I enjoy most.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
