Here's an entertaining crime story set in 1939 with nice atmosphere and colors and the normal Woody Allen wacky humor.
If you enjoy man-versus-woman insult exchanges, you'll love this as
Allen and Helen Hunt trade clever barbs back and forth at a rate that
reminded of an old Marx Brothers film. Many of the lines are funny with
Allen, since it's his film, delivering most of them.
The story goes on a bit too long but overall keeps your interest. The
women in here, from Hunt to the office girl (Elizabeth Berkely) to
Charlize Theron playing a Veroncia Lake-lookalike are all glamorous.
Dan Akroyd, David Ogden-Stiers, Wallace Shawn and John Schuck are all
veteran comedians who know their trade so the movie offers a lot of
quality yuks. I'm surprised this movie isn't better known. I really
enjoyed it the first time but laughed even more on the second viewing.
Silly, but fun.
