Film Review To Rome With Love Woody Allen’s having a wonderful time in Italy, but you’ll wish you weren’t there Prior to 2005, when he was a strictly New York kind of guy, Woody Allen’s batting average was quite high. From 1969’s Take the Money and Run to 1987’s Radio Days , Allen pumped out an unbroken string of classic films (1987’s September was his first seriously meh effort). Even figuring in misses like 1998’s Celebrity and 2003’s Anything Else , you could put him at about a .750—pretty high for a guy who’s put out at least one movie a year since 1969.
