Melinda and Melinda 2004


Melinda and Melinda combines romantic comedy and drama in a way that Woody Allen, unique among filmmakers, likes to contrast. It takes place in Manhattan and chronicles a pair of crises that give great reign to the funny and serious talents of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Will Ferrell, Jonny Lee Miller, Radha Mitchell, Amanda Peet, ChloŽ Sevigny and Wallace Shawn. All the usual Allen areas are explained - the fragility of love, marital infidelity, sophisticated romance, the inability to communicate. As a character in the movie puts it, "He's despondent, he's desperate, he's suicidal. All the comic elements are in place." (read more)

Melinda and Melinda Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/5/2007)

It is nice to see Woody Allen experiment with form and content, but unfortunatly this film misses the mark.

It begins as a sort of 'Dinner With Andre' (1981), as a group of friends (including 'Andre's Wallace Shawn, best known as Vizzini in 1997's 'The Princess Bride') discuss the difference in viewing the world either as...

Melinda and Melinda Movie Review by AJ (4/14/2006)

Say what you will about Allen's more recent fare (excluding the acclaimed Match Point which I have yet to see), but he still knows what he's doing. Melinda and Melinda is a unique film whose story unfolds as a dinner conversation between two playwrights about the different values of comedy and drama. Thus, we get the same...

Melinda and Melinda Movie Review by Tony (4/7/2006)

Everyone has a viewed a romantic comedy right? Check. Everyone has viewed a drama right? Check. This time we put them together to make two films in one. Woody Allen's "Melinda and Melinda" asks is human life comedic, or tragic? He tells a woman's story twice- once as a comedy, once as a...

Melinda and Melinda Movie Review by Camille (4/20/2005)

I think that the premise for this movie is wonderful. Haven't you ever wondered how that co-worker/friend/stranger can see the world so differently than you do? That being said, I was expecting a few more laughs from the comedic side and I laughed more than I expected to on the dramatic side. Melinda (Radha Mitchnell)...

Melinda and Melinda Movie Review by Nicholas (4/11/2005)

Woody Allen & Woody Allen

The great and historic accomplishment of Allen Stewart Konigsberg, was the creation of an enduringly comedic personae, Woody Allen. In the best of his films, Woody Allen is a symbol of the openly neurotic quality of the human condition, thrown haphazardly against the absurdities of existence. In...
