Not a big fan of Mr. Allen and this movie reinforces that. But OK if you want way out and absurd for a laugh

An American classic slapstick movie of the early 1970's.. for some it's uproariously and knee-slappingly funny. Movie goers who are familiar with New York, esp Woody Allen's New York, with his Jewish comedy neuroses will do well; the movie holds its own nearly 40 years later. Back in the 1990's a NYTimes reporter wrote an article about a movie theatre owner in a small Texas city; the theater owner said Woody Allen doesn't fly in his neck-of-the-woods. And some of the time-dated humor with its references to 1960's and early 1970's real people will be completely lost on movie goers younger than their late 50's. For those old enough, it's a timeless gem. The 200 year old VW bug alone is worth waiting for; the Tennessee Williams play takeoff: incomparable.

This is another one of the movies that is on my list of "Weirdest Films Ever." Woody Allen wakes up in a future that is very bizarre and nonsensical and not really funny considering this is supposedly a comedy.
