Play It Again, Sam

"OK"

Play It Again, Sam Review


Woody Allen has made a scant few appearances in films he didn't also direct. This is one of the better ones, an adaptation of his stage play by director Herbert Ross, best known for teaming him for the first time with Diane Keaton, a watershed moment no matter how you cut it. The story's a bit silly: Allen is a nebbish film critic who's getting divorced. To help him back into the game, he envisions Humphrey Bogart to help him woo women (including his best friend's wife, Keaton). Naturally, scenes from various Bogie movies are re-enacted and perverted for the purpose of comedy.
