I missed this in the theaters and when I heard of the mixed reviews it decreased my desire to see it. What a fool am I! I cannot believe I doubted my favorite writer/director. I simply adored the film. It's pure Woody in his classic cynical views of the world, the very reason I fell in love with him. Yet underneath all of his misanthropic tendencies, he still makes me laugh loudly in wild agreement because he is a man of my own heart. Sure, to the casual observer, those unfamiliar with Woody's style, it may seem self-indulgent, but he's the writer and it's HIS FILM. I wouldn't want it any other way. I think Woody found a winner w/ Larry David. I'm definitely adding this DVD to my WA collection.
