(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

acting 8

directing 9

effects 6

editing 6

writing 8


3.7 out of 5 🐙


Do you like bravura performances from some of the finest female actors of a generation (Barbara Hershey, Mia Farrow, Dianne West) PLUS the recently departed master Carrie Fisher?  Do you like Woody Allen’s signature humor and dialogue style, and a very funny and absurd setup that’s simultaneously handled with a solid everyperson vibe? Yeah, me too.







(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
