Whatever Works

Woody Allen's latest comedy stars Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David as an eccentric New Yorker who abandons his upper class life to lead a bohemian existence. He meets a young girl from the south (Evan Rachel Wood) and her highly religious parents (Patricia Clarkson and Ed Begley Jr.) and no two people seem to get along in the entanglements that follow.

This far-fetched, deliberately artificial game of musical chairs -- in which mismatched characters encircle, attract and repel each other -- feels forced, often losing itself in excess verbiage.

No kidding: this is the feel-good movie of the year and a cinematic soul massage.

Yellnikoff, played with perfect pitch by Larry David.

Features enough genuine laughs to give it decent commercial traction.
