Woody Allen (Lenny), Helena Bonham-Carter

Woody Allen enthusiasts will enjoy this much more than
regular cinemagoers. It's his typical style of neurotic comedy, yet isn't anywhere near as good as his better works.
He takes on the lead character once more as a sports
writer driven to rescue the mother of his adopted son from a life of prostitution.
Mira Sorvino's standout performance is enchanting and
irritating in equal measure, but was memorable enough to see her win 1995's Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. She was the best thing about the film, but I really don't understand the
win at all.
