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.

Features enough genuine laughs to give it decent commercial traction.

Hilarious even for those who don't like Allen

I am not a great lover of woody's off beat comedies but on the day when I needed a dose of laughter this was the perfect medicine. I was laughing from start to finish. There are a few things that as always throw the conservative mind but the acting and humour is such that you quickly get past it. Bravo to Evan Rachel and Wood Larry David.
