To Rome with Love

Well on Monday night I watched Annie Hall with a friend of mine and then last night I watched the new Woody Allen film To Rome with Love, and boy did I enjoy it. Now, if you are a person who gets anxious and rather stressed out by emotions, I do not recommend this film for you. But, on the other hand if you are ready for a roller coaster ride of wit, insanity and humor this is a film you have to see. I know a lot of people do not like Woody Allen, and many think he is not funny, just neurotic, but he cracks me up. I would like to share with you a few little pieces of his humor that I really do enjoy.

The first is The Moose and is a personal favorite of mine. It really exemplifies his story telling style, his prose and his antics. The punch line is killer. I am starting to think that maybe I like woody allen so much because I am Jewish and I can relate to his humor, maybe its because I am a little ridiculous, maybe its because he is funny. Just watch his face during his first line! Cracks me up every time.

The next clip is actually a tie for me with the moose. This is my favorite joke, and I love it because its only funny once you get it, and it usually takes people a while. Listen to the folks in the audience, the first guy laughs after five seconds, then everyone gets it! Hilarious!

This movie is a trip, and I think you will at least get a couple good chuckles, I thought it was well worth the price of admission.

Laugh On
