As I mentioned yesterday, I tried to watch a Woody Allen movie over the weekend–Manhattan, specifically. I got half an hour into it and…I just couldn’t do it. I turned it off and deleted it off my DVR. This may not seem like a big deal, except that I NEVER DO THIS–when I choose to watch a movie I’m actually investing myself in the story for 2 hours, regardless of how good or bad it is.

In the car with Darcy a little while later, I explained why, in detail (I know she appreciates it when I do this). “It didn’t go anywhere! A lot of Woody Allen movies are that way–it’s just about talking and taaaalking, without saying anything! It just amounts to a bunch of liberal intellectual types who are so self absorbed they think their own pathetic lives are the center of the universe! And they don’t believe in right or wrong–to them, they can’t do any wrong. They can justify themselves into oblivion! Why do people like these movies? TCM [the channel I recorded it off of] gave it 3 and a half stars! Why? Did they do that because they loved it or because they felt like they were supposed to love it? Why do actors want to keep working with this guy whose voice sounds like he’s TRYING to annoy…”

I then realized that, if I in fact had said voice, I’d sound just like Woody Allen. Oh my Gwaaaaaaaawd!!!!!!!!!

  1. Thanks for a good laugh.

    I can’t stand Woody Allen movies for the same reason. And I sometimes whine to Sophie in ways that could come right out of a Woody Allen movie script.
