Critic Reviews for Annie Hall

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (23)

[Woody Allen] has miraculously made his most personal film his funniest.

February 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Annie Hall is as good as it is because its comedy is always on the brink of the minor tragedies of real life and love.

February 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Romantic, honest, and touching - all the kinds of things one wants from a smart rom-com that refuses to be guided by the genre's tropes.

August 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A soft, fuzzy, mildly diverting letdown.

May 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Woody Allen fans will buy it 100%. Never before has the diminutive comedian been so urbane, so open - so funny. And with lovely Diane Keaton as consort, it becomes well-nigh irresistible (especially if you find Keaton as well-nigh irresistible as I do).

April 20, 2017 | Full Review…

This is Woody Allen's signature film, arguably his best and certainly his most popular.

March 3, 2015 | Rating: A+

Audience Reviews for Annie Hall

Who knew that in 1977 Woody Allen would graphically portray exactly the type of urban soul that rural Trump supporters hate: over-educated, over-erudite, and over-exposed. His character hates Los Angeles as being too rural. But he can laugh at himself, and so the inherent charm of this work survives.

This romantic comedy classic changed games and defied genre conventions with its non-sequential narrative, anhedonic witticisms, metatheatrical antics, and pragmatic ode to human relationships. I don't really think the titular character is as ditzy as she's always described in synopses, nor do I think Diane Keaton's satisfactory performance was Oscar-worthy, but as a whole, "Annie Hall" is simply one of the best.

I guess I just don't like films with Woody Allen in them. I try to watch them, but he prattles on and on.
