The greatest film of all time!

Okay okay since my celebrity crush got herself attached to a guy much hotter than I or most men could ever hope to be I swore to move on to another debutant, namely Ann Hathaway. This obviously didn't last.

I lie. I lie a lot.

I've been disappointed with Woody Allen films for the most part. Granted he gave us some brilliant work in the 70s, but his quality diminished since. While there have been a few highlights such as Bullets Over Broadway and Match Point most of his work since the mid 80s has been less than stellar. Granted he really set a high bar with Annie Hall and Crimes and Misdemeanors, but still we've learned to expect more from a mind as warped as his.

I never felt the need to rush out and see one of his films in a long time, but yet he created one recently that I hope to see on opening night. Just watch the below trailer and those who've been reading this blog for a while will understand why.

Yes it's another flick involving self indulgent people with too much time, talent, and not enough maturity to get their emotional house in order. Yet he put Scarlett and Penelope in the same film. Not only that they make out in it.

Hmm, maybe I need to rent this so I can watch it alone. I shouldn't have to explain why.

"One of the best things for a woman to hear is that she is sexy." - Scarlett Johansson

Yeah- it would be pretty sexy to see Scarlett make out with Penelope... but I doubt that I would sit through a Woody Allen movie in the theater to see it. I'll probably go see The Spirit to indulge in stylized feminine hotness instead. Besides, I can't look at Javier Bardem without thinking, "Call it, Friendo". -e

I think Penelope is so ugly! I know I'm no where near a model and she does have a nice body (butter-face). But I digress.. Scarlett on the other hand.. Man I hope she a Ryan "accidentally" leak a sex video. THAT I would pay to see

Anne Hathaway? Really?? That would be trading down, bro. ha
I can't wait to see this. I don't know if you can go wrong with that cast, but stranger things have happened.
