While I was aware that Woody Allen directed this flick, I had no idea that he would also be starring in it (pays to do research sometimes). If his character had been played by someone else I would have enjoyed it far more.
Scarlett Johansson and Hugh Jackman are easy to watch and the movie would have been better without Woody's bumbling attempts to be funny.
