This is not only one of the best romantic comedies ever but most certainly one of the best comedies ever. The dialog feels so natural and it's downright hilarious, even though I'm sure I'm missing tons of references. I'm astounding at how many modern movies I've seen, and love, borrow from, or are at least directly influenced by this film, such as the breaking of the 4th by looking directing into the camera and delving in and out of memories. Absolutely an essential film to see.

Puts to shame any other romantic comedy I've seen. Allen's sense of creativity is in full force, with animated sequences, split screens that address each other, subtitles that clash with spoken dialogue, kids speaking as adults, so on. The romance is incredibly heartfult and genuine. Extremely sweet without ever becoming sappy. Oh, and it's hilarious to boot.

Energetic and funny, well written dialogue and structure, good supporting cast, and Keaton, in particular, is excellent - she plays the sweet, yet bizzare romantic interest without the blatant and gimmicky "look at me, I'm so quirky!" ticks found in contemporary independent films.

Woody Allen puts some of the most hilarious sequences into some of the most unfunny situations, and it works great. I love the style that only he has, it brings a lot to the table. My only problem is that for the last half hour it changes pace and there is almost nothing funny about the movie, just drama. Otherwise, this movie was simply perfect.

This is probably Woody Allen's alltime best movie. Personally, my favourite scene is the subtitled scene where they reveal the true nature of the conversation between Woody and Diane Keaton. Brilliant! 'We need the eggs', and this is one of the tastiest I have ever tried!

First-time viewers will have a difficult time seeing how fresh and original this film was. Its style has directly impacted independent romantic comedies to this day - i.e. Say Anything or (500) Days of Summer. It's an honest, exposing look at the flaws we have and the many emotions and obstacles that come with revealing ourselves intimately. Though Allen's classic, selfish neurotics are not for everyone, his writing is clever and the film perfectly captures middle-class life in 1970s New York.

Well, I watched it all the way through. I do not like Woody Allen. I probably never will. The self-effacing act with all the stammering and shit really annoys me. Keaton's quirk was too forced, and nearly nothing was funny.

First, by law I have to compare this to "Manhattan"...and I think it's just a shade beneath it. I just preferred the music, lighting and story a tad more than "Annie". Still, "Annie" was a great picture in its own right, and only the 2nd Allen movie I've ever seen so I'm not worn out by his schtick yet. Snappy dialogue, fantastic and unexpected cameos (Chris Walken! Jeff Goldblum! Marshall McLuhan?!) and a great portrayal of the peculiarities of confusing, senseless, committed love.

The sweetest, saddest, funniest movie romance, curated from beyond the fourth wall with a deep bag of gags and tricks. Diane Keaton is adorable, and the perfect foil by which Allen surmises his own self-reckoning as a misanthrope who inflicts his misery upon others.

Many filmmakers have tried to turn their relationships into a commercial story and no one cares. Why does this work so well? It's not just the writing (the characters reflect general truths about men & women, while being unique (esp Keaton's Hall), which makes it all feel more true. We also see WHY these 2 fall in love & break up), but the clever visuals that deliver backstory in fast & clever ways (Paul Simon's shady music exec; Annie's WASPy family; split-screening therapists; the cartoon)

Yeek. The whining and mysogyny is entirely unbecoming. The movie is really about nothing except setting up Woody's rants, which occasionally garner an ironic guffaw or chuckle, but far more often an eye roll. I guess the only positive of this movie is it's made me more attune to the times that I'm whiny and my sarcasm comes off like this, so hopefully I can be less like him.

I'm very late on the Woody Allen train, hell I had to sprint down the track and haul myself onto the caboose. Totally worth it though, I now see why he is prolific. This is a sweet, melon collie view of a relationship from promising start, to decline. The Rise and Fall of Rome made small, but no less emotionally impacting. So many moments in this movie made me think of similar instances in my own relationships. This is a movie anyone who has ever been in a serious relationship can connect to.

Insufferably terrible, how does anyone rate this? Woody Allen is painful, not acting but just pretending, the film stops every time he is in the scene, which is nearly every scene. Possibly interesting a preseient of the looser-world films of the 2000-2010 period. The characterizations are weak to the point of flimsy, the script is poor. The only interesting thing is ... some people can actually tolerate... and then like... this film!!!

Annie Hall is fantastic. This is my first Woody Allen movie that I have sat down and really paid attention to. I've seen a few others but they never really caught my fancy but this movie is funny and sweet. It is everything a romantic comedy should be. The casting is wonderful and it's fun finding all of the talent that is bursting throughout this movie. I'm looking at the cast list and I noticed that Sigourney Weaver is listed and I don't even remember seeing her. I would watch it again.

This is more about a relationship and how it unraveled. It's subtleties leave an impression of a deep and complex love. By the end of the movie, audiences have become to love and root for the characters to stay together. Inevitably, they don't, and it's a kind of tragedy. But it's also hilarious, which keeps it from being chick-flick-y. It beat out Star Wars for Best Picture in 1977. MUST SEE. SERIOUSLY. Favorite Movie of All Time.

My first experience of Allen at his creative best ensures Annie Hall remains my favourite, despite some of his other works being equally as good. Allen and Keaton are both brilliant and, as always, have great on-screen chemistry. Allen's script is amazingly witty and captures the neurosis of people in relationships perfectly. The jokes are often understated but always funny and who can forget Allen brilliantly 'breaking the fourth wall' to achieve a place in cinematic history.

A simple, genuine and touching story looking at love and relationships. The dialogue is great, as is the chemistry between Allen and Keaton. What really sets this movie apart is the number of creative methods that Allen utilizes to tell his story: fourth-wall-breaking asides, animated sequences, splitscreen, subtitles showing us the characters' thoughts, etc. An absolute classic that established a lot of genre standards and set an incredibly high bar for quality romantic comedy.

One of the very best films about relationships, in particular heterosexual relationships. Few films capture the emotions, thoughts, beliefs and actions of our often futile efforts to lovingly connect with other people. Allen's comedy of the neurotic - the self-hating New York Jew persona that many have tried and failed to imitate - is on full show here. The Allen-Keaton dynamic is perfect, with the support cast and cameos all serving the the greater good of the film.

Acclaimed coming-of-cinematic-age film for Allen is based in part on his own life. His love affair with Hall/Keaton is chronicled as an episodic, wistful comedy commenting on family, love, loneliness, communicating, maturity, driving, city life, careers, and various other topics. Abounds with classic scenes, including future star Goldblum and his mantra at a cocktail party; Allen and the lobster pot; and Allen, Keaton, a bathroom, a tennis racket, and a spider. The film operates on many levels,

After the more abstract high concepts of Sleeper and Love & Death this was a refreshing shift back to the real world (give or take some talking to the camera and surrealist asides). More chuckle knowingly, thoughtful-funny than gutbusting funny, give or take Christopher Walken. Diane Keaton’s kinda artsy ditzy type of character is more iconic in look and presence than she was in the last couple; Woody figured out how to use her well. Ending voiceover monologue and holding shot very evocative.

The best movie about relationships ever made. Woody Allen also creates one of the funniest movies ever made, learning to translate his jokes to a visual medium, as well as inhabiting his hilarious comic persona. And then the relationships, all rooted in this humor and character, and wrapped up with some profound truths. Probably my favorite movie script ever.

You know, if you want to see just one Woody Allen(TM) movie, this is probably the one to watch. It's witty, it's inventive, it's whiny and neurotic and self-obsessed but it mostly does it well and has a couple of absolutely hilarious gags. The trouble, of course, is that he's made the same movie, mostly not as well, at least 10 more times.

I just recently watched an excellent appreciation of Edgar Wright that notes how he gets film comedy right by using every aspect of the medium including sight and sound. This was a perfect precursor, because Allen truly throws everything he can at getting a laugh. From split screen to subtitles to the brilliant Marshall McLuhan cameo. Only notch is Diane Keaton's pronunciation of Wisconsin: Wesconson. You know, that state that borders the Messesseppe River.

Lately I’ve come to realize that I’m not really into the acting of Diane Keaton. This movie confirms that. I'm working on the ins and outs of this realization. Allen is convincing and makes me out of breath in a good way. The mixture of successfull and less successfull jokes and a couple of great scenes hold my attention, but my bucket of intellectualistic rage has been overflowing for a long time so the mainpart didn’t tickle. Solid soundtrack though.

Woody Allen's comedic genius shines brightly through the gloomy and overcast life of NY City. From the self-parody of his leftist, Jewish and artistic lifestyle he himself lives, to his ranting on the inevitability of death. Allen's ability to make "us", the viewers laugh uncontrollably is a true talent rarely found in today's comedic circles. Coupled with the most witty script and impudent remarks I've ever heard from a character; Allen teaches us that the eggs are well worth the catch.

A ninety-minute movie that's about forty-five minutes too long; it felt like it would have made a better sitcom. I think what really ruined this for me (I'm over the Star Wars/Oscar thing) was that almost every single sentence was intended as a humorous line -- it just got exhausting (which, admittedly, is why I don't watch many sitcoms either). There certainly were moments of brilliance (and Keaton certainly deserved *her* Oscar), but overall it just didn't work for me.

Manages to reach a striking observation of how we fall in love and our relationships. The exploration of how love fades, the questions we ask our self while it suggests that's just how people are. And by the end reach an acceptance that it's just "irrational and crazy and absurd" but we still need the eggs. Still don't know if is it Allen's sense of humor, the references or the overall neurotic style that makes it difficult for me to really fall in love with the movie.

Guys, I only like my humour in any mixture of three different varieties: Dry, Black, and Absurd; and since Annie Hall is a (romantic) comedy that doesn't fit into any of those above categories, that means that no non-linear narrative, no number of broken fourth walls, and no amount of superbly-written dialogue will ever make me consider this film to be anything more than just "Good-Yet-Over-Rated.

What is truly surprising is how smart, witty and original at the same time manages to be stupidly romantic and then yet again keeps itself in line with some well placed sarcasm or other responsive twist. And as long as it goes, the movie rolls from one emotional state to the other seamlesly as if without any effort. Diane Keaton is out of this world, and all the secondary roles are filled with talent. Now actors have aged, but the fact somehow makes the movie even better. Must be the misery.

(2nd viewing) I'm glad I gave this another watch. Although I didn't like how Allen departed from the narrative at times and turned it into a one man show, I think the script is undeniably witty and appealing and Keaton is just wonderful to behold. I loved how the story jumps back and forward in time, even intertwined at times, how he breaks the fourth wall,... Think I'm gonna see it again soon.
