As a pastiche of loosely connected scenes riffing on the same concept (in this case,"celebrity") this works better for me than Radio Days. The only real flaw for me is that, while I find Woody Allen's screen persona oddly loveable, I don't enjoy seeing other people adopt all of his inflections and mannerisms.

Both my wife and I love Woody Allen, but neither of us liked this movie. In fact, my wife stopped watching in the middle, although I did watch until the end. There are virtually no likable characters, which, I suppose, is the point -- if there is a point. I usually say that a bad Woody Allen film is better than most films, but I would not say that here. I would only recommend this film if, like me, you are committed to seeing every single movie written and directed by Woody Allen.
