Woody Allen goes to Argentina

It's hard to know if this movie is a tribute or just a copy of Woody Allen's obsessions: a scriptwriter in his 40's, neurotic and sarcastic, meets a young beautiful crazy girl who makes him feel young again (remember Manhattan?). Soon, he has his own TV show, which is a success because everybody loves his wit -but then he looses his old girlfriend, a snobbish middle-aged woman who makes him feel awkward. That turns into a blessing, because life with the young girl is nicer, no matter that his mother, a latin American version of the classic yidishe mame, becomes more popular than him thanks to the TV show. Funny, but not funny enough, the movie has some great dialogues. But it's not well solved at the end, and some parts are just too conventional. A good time, some good laughs, but nothing else.
