Melinda and Melinda

Let's just accept the fact that writer/director Woody Allen ain't what he used to be. If we do, this latest comedy/drama seems quite a bit better than some of his more recent offerings. The film starts with two writers relating the tale of hapless New York heroine Melinda (Radha Mitchell). Is her story a comedy or a tragedy? Somewhat intriguingly, the film offers two versions of the same tale: one comic, one tragic. On the plus side, Allen does not appear in the film. On the minus side, he's hired Will Ferrell to impersonate him (just like John Cusack, Jason Biggs and Kenneth Branagh before him). Get over yourself, Woody. Please. This one isn't up to par with the auteur's best, but it's a step in the right direction. 100 minutes PG-13.
