an under-rated Woody Allen film.
A romantic comedy (with the occasional foray into slapstick) filled to the brim with Woody Allen's characteristic neuroses - and Humphrey Bogart to boot. There is much to be admired in this treatise on relationships, self-worth and being yourself - above all, Allen's impeccable writing and the clear adoration it has for "Casablanca".
"Play it again, Sam" is not overly memorable, but a pleasant ride nonetheless.
It's good, but I prefer his later, less slapstick, comedy. Definitely a must-see though.
