Play It Again, Sam

BBBB

(out of 5)


Hysterical comedy, adapted by from his own play. He plays a Bogart-obsessed film writer who goes looking for love after his wife leaves him. His friends and are constantly trying to find women to set him up with, but Allen grows to realize that the lovely Keaton is the one he really wants. Pairing the two of them up for the first time onscreen, director Herbert Ross deftly lays the blueprints for the later classics Annie Hall and Manhattan, marvelously bringing out Allen’s excellent dialogue and keeping the rhythm of his comedy succinct. It’s a great romantic comedy that still seems fresh and modern today, and is loved by most Allen fans as among his best works (even though it’s one of the few productions of his writing that he didn’t direct).
