Woody Allen's newest comedy continues his return to his "older, funnier" material as seen in Small Time Crooks and The Curse of the Jade Scorpion. Allen plays a brilliant but unemployable film director whose ex-wife (Tea Leoni) gets him a job working on a $60 million blockbuster. Just before shooting, he goes psychosomatically blind -- but finishes the film anyway. Filled with laughs and missed potential for lots more, the film leaves us happy but maybe wishing for something bigger -- something like Crimes and Misdemeanors. George Hamilton, Treat Williams, Mark Rydell, Tiffani Thiessen, Debra Messing and Barney Cheng all provide amusing support.
