Woody Allen originally intended the film to be three hours long, and in two parts. The first part would have him in the present day, coping with life, until his illness. And the second half, would be the futuristic part. But, United Artists rejected this concept. See more »

Miles, I wrote a song about the revolution.
There's not going to be any revolution unless we stop the Aries Project.
Don't you worry about that; you just relax. Now, listen:

The film is pure magic, its my favourite comedy and I think it is in my top three Allen films of all time.
See it if you like the Marx brothers, Woody is all of them rolled into one in this film, it's utter genius. Woody also plays the jazz music which scores the film, and you know you're in for a treat when hearing the first few bars makes you smile. There aren't many comedies out there which could top this in terms of low budget, gags-per-second ratio, music, and sheer quality.
If a film could save your life (as in Hannah and her sisters), it's this one.
