Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/19/2003
"...Its relaxed, casual air gives the humor room to breathe..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/19/2003
"...ANYTHING ELSE feels newly hatched..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 09/19/2003
"The dialogue in Woody Allen's ANYTHING ELSE is an exercise of neurotic bravery....And because Allen is a master of comic dialogue, it is our pleasure to listen..."
Rolling Stone - 10/02/2003
"...Allen hasn't lost his knack for slapstick with a sting..."
Premiere - 03/01/2004

Sight and Sound - 07/01/2004

Product Description:

Jason Biggs and Christina Ricci star as a mismatched couple in Woody Allen's funny and well-made romantic comedy ANYTHING ELSE. Biggs plays Jerry Falk, a young comedy writer looking to make it big, while Ricci is Amanda, a self-absorbed free spirit whom men go wild for. They fall for each other instantly near the beginning of the film, then spend the rest of the movie trying to work out their very complex and complicated relationship, especially after her mother (Stockard Channing) moves in to their small apartment to live with them.

With echoes of such classic Allen fare as ANNIE HALL, ANYTHING ELSE is a lighthearted look at young love in the Big Apple. Allen himself stars as David Dobel, an older comedy writer who mentors Jerry, often on walks through Central Park, but it seems that Dobel has a bit of an anger management problem. Once again, New York City is virtually a character unto itself, as Allen includes scenes in such Gotham places as the Village Vanguard jazz club, Isabella's restaurant, Roosevelt Island, Sheepshead Bay, and the Quad Cinema. Good supporting work is turned in by Danny DeVito as Falk's manager. The soundtrack includes songs by Billie Holiday, Ravi Shankar, Teddy Wilson, Lester Young, Moby, and Diana Krall, who appears in the film.
