At 80 Woody Allen is still punching out sripts and directing film that entertain and keep you thinking. This is not Woody's best but certainly if a list were created in order of best to worst this one would be soewhere in the middle. The actors of note should be mentioned. Steve Carell is excellent and shows consistency coming off of Foxcatcher. Blake Lively fits her role like a glove and I hope she gets a starring vehicle soon. Jesse Eisenberg trys hard but I find his overly studied and exhibited mannerisms annoying. Kristen Stewart is hot now but certainly not for her acting ability. I'm hard pressed to come up with anything good about her very underplayed performance. Still, even not so hard core Woody fans will find this one entertaining.
