Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway Misses Its Target With Critics


Zach Braff Woody Allen Bullets Over Broadway

Zach Braff's stage adaptation of Woody Allen's 1994 crime caper Bullets Over Broadway has fallen flat with critics.

The comedy film, which starred John Cusack and Dianne Wiest, has been adapted for the Broadway stage with Scrubs star Braff in the lead role, but the show failed to impress reviewers when it opened at the St. James Theatre on Thursday night (10Apr14).

The New York Daily News' Joe Dziemianowicz called the production a "bit of a miss", adding, "Allen's showbiz and gangland eccentrics stiffen into cardboard when they're amplified from two to three dimensions... It doesn't help that key actors shoot blanks... Beyond mediocre acting is the poor choice at the center of this jukebox musical."

Jim Broadbent's 'Complicated' Confession


Jim Broadbent Bullets Over Broadway Harry Potter Mia Farrow Woody Allen

Jim Broadbent found it tough to tell Mia Farrow he was working with her ex-partner Woody Allen.

The 'Iron Lady' actor was delighted to be approached to appear in the director's 1994 movie 'Bullets Over Broadway' but says the situation was made complicated as the offer came at a time when he was working with the actress, who was locked in a complex custody battle with the filmmaker over their three kids.

He told Reader's Digest magazine: ''My agent said, 'Woody's going to ring you up - he wants a word about a part in his next film, 'Bullets over Broadway'.

Broadway To Continue Grabbing Hits From Hollywood


Christopher Reeve Back To The Future Big Fish Bullets Over Broadway Great White Sleepless In Seattle

Although in the past a hit Broadway show almost inevitably led to a hit Hollywood movie, the reverse process is increasingly occurring these days, the New York Post observed on Sunday as it laid out a long list of movies that are being developed for Broadway or that have already made the schedule for fall debuts. The newspaper quoted Broadway producer Manny Azenberg as saying, "A hit film is a brand, and it gives you that recognition factor." Ken Davenport, a producer who is currently preparing to mount the 1980 Christopher Reeve time-traveler Somewhere in Time on the Great White Way, dismisses criticism that such shows lack the creative innovation that is expected of a Broadway show that people often pay hundreds of dollars to see. He told the Post "Totally original musicals that aren't based on anything are unbelievably rare, and have a big failure rate. I look for source material that will make a great musical, and I don't care if it's from a book, a movie or a postcard!" Among the movies in the process of being transformed into stage productions are Animal House, Back To The Future, Big Fish, Bullets Over Broadway, Flashdance , and Sleepless In Seattle.

Allen Awarded Legal Fees In Editing Row


Woody Allen Jean Doumanian Bullets Over Broadway Mighty Aphrodite Deconstructing Harry Sweet and Lowdown

Veteran director Woody Allen has been awarded $95,000 (GBP50,000) in legal fees by a New York City judge in his court battle with former producer Jean Doumanian over the editing of his films for television and airplanes.
Allen filed suit against Doumanian, her partner JACQUI SAFRA and their production company Sweetland Films five years ago (01), accusing them of cheating him out of $12 million (GBP6.6 million) in profits after refusing to give him an earnings report for eight movies.
Despite reaching a settlement in 2002, the case was brought back to the Supreme Court in May (06) after a provision from the agreement stipulated if the parties disagreed over the editing for television, the matter would be resolved by a judge.
Doumanian was responsible for editing Bullets Over Broadway, Mighty Aphrodite, EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU, Deconstructing Harry, CELEBRITY and Sweet and Lowdown for television and in-flight movies.
Justice BERNARD FRIED agreed that under the terms of the settlement Doumanian had the right to edit offensive words with substitute words, instead of bleeping them out as Allen would wish.
But State Supreme Court Justice Bernard Fried ruled on Thursday (10AUG06) that Doumanian should cover Allen's costs.

Allen Loses Film Editing Battle


Woody Allen Jean Doumanian Bullets Over Broadway Mighty Aphrodite Deconstructing Harry Sweet and Lowdown

Woody Allen lost his legal battle with former producer Jean Doumanian over the editing of his films for television and airplanes in a New York court yesterday (25MAY06). Allen filed suit against Doumanian, her partner JACQUI SAFRA and their production company Sweetland Films five years ago (01), accusing them of cheating him of $12 million (GBP6.6 million) in profits after refusing to give him an earning report for eight movies. Despite reaching a settlement in 2002, the case was brought back to the Supreme Court this week after a provision from the agreement stipulated if the parties disagreed over the editing for television, the matter would be resolved by a judge. Doumanian was responsible for editing Bullets Over Broadway, Mighty Aphrodite, EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU, Deconstructing Harry, CELEBRITY and Sweet and Lowdown for television and in-flight movies. On Thursday, Justice BERNARD FRIED agreed that under the terms of the settlement Doumanian had the right to edit offensive words with substitute words, instead of bleeping them out as Allen would wish. Fried supported Doumanian's argument that US TV networks preferred to substitute words rather than bleeping. The director's lawyer MICHAEL ZWEIG says, "We now respectfully disagree with Judge Fried's decision and believe that, in any case, any future effort by the producers to modify the films will not, in the long run, prove attractive or commercially viable."
