I do like this one. After really viewing it for the first time.

If you know of Woody Allen, and when you hear Linda Ash (Mira Sorvino) speak, one gets a feeling that it is actually Woody Allen speaking, and while it seems interesting the first time one hears the delivery of the lines, it seems a bit sad the second time around, because the actress comes out looking like a puppet, which I guess actors and actresses are, especially in the scene when he goes to her apartment, and I suppose he too (Woody Allen) is. Nonetheless, I like Woody Allen because of his honesty, in his jokes, and his movies, and his much needed and accurate criticism of himself and his own culture.

Woe to the people who cannot, or are unable to laugh at themselves and their follies.

Thing to remember is that Mira Sorvino walk away from this film with an Academy Award. And as with any Woody Allen film, everythng is first take, he never rehearses. Sorvino earned that oscar. And the Greek Chorus drives home the theme which is timeless, "Where do we come from?"

Smutty and in poor taste. Often grotesque.

UPDATE 2018: if no-talent Sorvino "regrets" working with the great Woody Allen (she would have had no career without him) then she ought to give the Academy its Oscar back. The Oscar that she was handed for her horrible performance and which she most assuredly did NOT deserve. Only a simpleton would fall for the lies of Dylan Farrow. #ibelieveMoses

Light and funny "à la Woody Allen". Mira Sorvino is hilarious!

One of Woody Allen's funniest, least overfilled or pretentious flicks. Mira Sorvino's best role ever, to my knowledge, as an airhead hooker with the usual heart of silver. The other characters are as two-dimensional, and there's a funny Greek chorus from Manhattan that does do-wop rhymes, plenty of laugh-out-loud lines, and a very enjoyable plot that's a bit thin but never overreaches (as shown with his treatment of that Greek chorus). Recommended.
