I keep watching Woody Allen's movies, hoping for another Annie Hall. Most don't even come close to this Best Picture Oscar winner. Some of my favorite parts are Christopher Walken as Annie's brother, the spider scene and the flashbacks to Alvy's childhood. Blink and you'll miss Jeff Goldblum, Sigourney Weaver and Beverly D'Angelo. The film is rated PG.

I was excited to see this movie, as it is a classic; but I didn't enjoy it at all. I thought there were some very clever lines from Woody Allen, but I didn't care for the characters or the story.

One of my top 5 favorite films-- full of clever details and subtle (& not-so-subtle) humor. A delight!

This was one film I've been telling myself I'd watch for years, and finally got around to. I can say it was mostly what I was expecting: the overly insecure, neurotic, self-deprecating Jewish guy whining about relationship problems; i.e., Woody Allen's routine schtick. I didn't hate it, in fact, I DID enjoy it. Diane Keaton was young and beautiful and her rendition of "Seems Like Old Times" was quite impressive.

After more than 30 years it is still a great entertainment.

This film is now 35-year old, and has been receiving good ratings in the past. However, as I get older, I find myself beginning to dislike Allen's constant over-acting. His character begins to irritate me. Yes, there are some funny moments in the film, and some good spoken lines. But for me its charm has worn off - a long time ago.

I hadn't seen this movie since it was first released in 1977. I enjoyed it then, and I enjoyed it just as much now. In 2013 it does come across somewhat dated at times, but overall remains an enjoyable movie. This is a great one to turn off the phones, pop in the DVD player, turn on the TV, sit back, popcorn and soda at hand, and watch this fun romantic comedy. Comedian Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) narratives the ups and downs of his on-again off-again relationship with Annie Hall (Diane Keaton). It's clear from the beginning this is not a good match personality-wise. Alvy's a neurotic self-obsessed pseudo intellectual compulsive. He thinks of life as a series of disasters, pain, and misfortunes. His favorite movie is "The Sorrow and the Pity: Alvy believes love in a world like this is "irrational and crazy and absurd"; contrast this to Annie, who subscribes to magical-thinking "close-your-eyes-and-and-all-your-problems-will-go away" fatalism. Annie just "goes with the flow". It can't work. But there are some truly fun times in between.

One of Allen's best.

The previous reviewer called Woody Allen's character "neurotic" and "annoying". Why not take some time to write about how the sky is blue while you're at it? Annie Hall is one of the best films of all time. Hands down. Period.

(In California) Annie Hall: "It's so clean out here!" Alvy Singer: "That's because they don't throw their garbage away. They turn it into television shows."

Alvy Singer (to Annie Hall): "A relationship, I think, is like a shark, y'know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark."

Alvie: There's an old joke. Uh, two elderly women are at a Catskills mountain resort, and one of 'em says: "Boy, the
food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know, and
such ... small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life. Full of loneliness and misery and suffering
and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly.

Annie: "La-dee-da, la-dee-da"
