    I don't much care for what I call the "slacker aesthetic" as displayed in movies like The Royal Tanenbaums or Little Miss Sunshine or pretty much anything from, say, the Farrelly brothers. I don't declaim against it, I just don't much care for it. For that matter, there's very little that's labeled as "comedy" these days that does much for me. Sophomoric low comedy just isn't my thing.

    It's worth noting that there's actresses say that the roles Allen writes for women are better than in a lot of other movies, were they are little more than eye candy. More complex, a little more meaty content to work with.

    Mark Twain: It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
