Trivia

Actress Mia Farrow has said of her difficulties in acting on this film in her autobiography 'What Falls Away': "At times during shooting, I was overpowered by such a paralysis that I couldn't understand who the characters were supposed to be or what they were doing. Woody, now my director, was a stranger to me. His icy sternness pushed my apprehension toward raw fear. I was no artist, only the most inept poseur. This seemingly straightforward material was beyond my capabilities. I remembered the movie Pat and Mike (1952), in which Katharine Hepburn, a professional athlete, was unable to do a thing when Spencer Tracy was around. My instincts, an actor's lifeline, screamed to head for the hills. By mid-movie I had an ulcer and was taking Tagamet four times a day. I was so apprehensive, dispirited, and humiliated, and so convinced I had failed Woody; that I asked if in the future, if there was a future, I could be his assistant, so I wouldn't have to act. He looked at me doubtfully and said, 'It's hard work being an assistant'." See more »

Very funny and entertaining movie!
26 May 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

First,i should say that i am an inconditional Woody Allen fan. I saw this movie for the first time yesterday and i had a GREAT time! Tony Roberts is just great in that one! I wonder why Woody did'nt cast him more often? I won't give you the plot as you already know it. I'll just add that A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy is a different Woody Allen film. This time he focus on the country in is beautifulness instead of the more common urban movie he used to shoot. And that gives this movie something unique compared to Woody's other works. The jokes and the situations are very funny and i laughed a lot! So if you are a Woody Allen fan and haven't seen that one,forget about all the bad words that movie got and enjoy a realy entertaining viewing!
