Woody's best in last decade.
I went to see this film a bit skeptical, because Woody's last movies
were not his best ones. In the last ten years, he has made funny,
entertaining films; some quite interesting, as "Decontructing Harry" or
"Sweet and Lowdown", but generally unimportant. But wit "Melinda and
Melinda" he has made one of his most brilliant films. As in "Crimes and
Misdemeanors", he mixes two different stories -a dramatic one, and a
light comedy-. The result ins quite different; this movie is not as
critic as that, but is really enjoyable. He mixes a drama -serious,
deep, with well-built characters, and really credible- and a delicious
comedy -with really funny quotes, and moments that recover his best of
the 80's-, with a lot of talent, because the two stories complete each
other, the movie doesn't creak.
Radha Mitchell is wonderful as the two Melindas: suggestive and content
in the drama; innocent, tender and funny int he comedy. And Will
Farrell, who takes the 'Woody Allen role', is the best choice he has
done for that purpose ever- because instead of imitating Allen, he
creates a new character, human, pleasant and funny. The script is
great; with parallelism and second interpretations- And the movie is
really entertaining. I hope it will get the attention it deserves; and
I expect Woody Allen to keep this new walk in his career. (9/10)..

Woody in every sense of the word
Can't remember an Allen movie I actually liked, but I decided to give
this movie a shot nonetheless. The concept was very delightful, but
sure enough, Allen is still bad.
We all know the usual mannerism of Will Ferrell, but much like every
other character in this movie, his delivery was more like an imitation
of Allen himself - down to the stuttering. I completely agree with
another reviewer who questioned "How many actors can he get to stand in
for his own neurotic, compulsive über-New Yorker persona?"
Allen's directing style is very distinguished, but I'd say more like
repetitive. He's basically producing never ending remakes of the same
story with the same characters. The dialogue was horrendous. Wooden
clichés sprinkled with occasional fancy words. Hobie considers himself
to be an intellect (like all the characters that are projections of
Allen) yet he speaks and stutters like a 10-year-old. Then, in the
middle of mindless repetitive ramblings where he goes on and on and on
about some extremely mundane topic, he throws in a completely random
reference to Dostoyevsky or Kieślowski. Wha? Worst thing is - I really
think that Woody is giving himself pat on the back for the "ingenious"
cultural references. The cinematography wasn't a treat, either. In one
of the restaurant scenes the camera sweep was so bad it was painful to
Without giving out too much about the ending, the dialogue was so
embarrassingly corny, I thought it was a dream sequence until the
credits began to roll on the screen. The ending could have been cobbled
together by an average 12-year-old fan-fiction writer..
