Melinda and Melinda

The last post for today will be the new Woody Allen movie.

Yahoo says: MELINDA AND MELINDA combines romantic comedy and drama in a way that Woody Allen, unique among filmmakers, likes to contrast. It takes place in Manhattan and chronicles a pair of crises that give reign to the talents of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Will Ferrell, Jonny Lee Miller, Radha Mitchell, Amanda Peet, Chloƫ Sevigny and Wallace Shawn. All the usual Allen areas are explained - the fragility of love, marital infidelity, sophisticated romance, the inability to communicate. As a character in the movie puts it, "He's despondent, he's desperate, he's suicidal. All the comic elements are in place."

Woddy Allen has always made me laugh and even feel his pain sometimes. I never go see his movies when they are in the theater, but never miss them on cable.....whatever that means lol.

He is always able to get the hottest stars to act in his movies, because he is truely a legend. The Chaplin of our time.
In this movie he landed the talents of Will Ferrell, Chjwetel Ejiofor, Jonny Lee Miller, Radha Mitchell and Amanda Peet.

No trailer was available to me so I really can't give much insight to this film....but....I'll bet it is worth your time if you like Woody Allen.

I think that Will Ferrell moves into the "real actor" category with this one. If anyone doubted his talent before, having Woody Allen validate his career is pretty damn huge.
