This movie was alright, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. I'm a big Woody Allen fan so I was disappointed with this. Worth a watch but don't expect to much.

Over a meal in a French restaurant, Sy poses a conundrum to his fellow diners: Is the essence of life comic or tragic? For the sake of argument, he tells a story, which the others then embellish to illustrate their takes on life. The story starts as follows: A young Manhattan couple, Park Avenue princess Laurel and tippling actor Lee, throw a dinner party to impress Lee's would-be producer when their long-lost friend Melinda appears at their front door, bedraggled and woebegone. In the tragic version of what happens next, the beautiful intruder is a disturbed woman who got bored with her Midwestern doctor-husband and dumped him for a photographer. Her husband took the children away and she spiraled into a suicidal depression that landed her straight-jacketed in a mental ward. In the comic version, Melinda is childless and a downstairs neighbor to the dinner hosts, who are ambitious Indy filmmaker Susan and under-employed actor Hobie..

Susan: I wish we could afford a place in the Hamptons. Everybody who's anybody has one. Hobie: Yeah, but if you're somebody who's nobody, it's no fun to be around anybody who's everybody.

Hobie: What? What's going on? Wait, all? we used to make love all the time and now, there's always an excuse. Susan: I told you, I'm going through an emotionally difficult time creatively. Hobie: You feel like we don't communicate anymore? Susan: Of course we communicate. Now can we not talk about it anymore?
