A romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. Personal and professional complications ensue.
Votes: 57,984 | Gross: $10.51M
This movie is very underrated. It isn't perfect but it has everything that makes a good movie. Emma and Colin work well as the awkward huge age difference couple backed up by a fantastically cute "magical" story 8.2
24. The Front (1976)
PG | 95 min | Drama
In 1953, a cashier poses as a writer for blacklisted talents to submit their work through, but the injustice around him pushes him to take a stand.

26. Interiors (1978)
PG | 92 min | Drama
Three sisters find their lives spinning out of control in the wake of their parents' sudden, unexpected divorce.
Dark and gritty Woody. Not what I'm used to but the take on a broken family was done really well and it went way deeper than I thought it would. Keaton was, as always, phenomenal. 8.1
27. Melinda and Melinda (2004)
PG-13 | 99 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Two alternating stories, one comedy and the other tragedy, about Melinda's attempts to straighten out her life.
Votes: 29,536 | Gross: $3.83M

PG-13 | 106 min | Comedy, Romance
A spoiled Manhattan housewife re-evaluates her life after visiting a Chinatown healer.
Votes: 12,117 | Gross: $7.33M

Votes: 224,316 | Gross: $23.22M

PG-13 | 95 min | Comedy, Drama, Music
In the 1930s, jazz guitarist Emmet Ray idolizes Django Reinhardt, faces gangsters and falls in love with a mute woman.
Votes: 30,216 | Gross: $4.20M
Never in my life would I expect Sean Penn to do a great Woody Allen. In my eyes its a story of a tough guy softening up because of a woman and finding his purpose in her. 8.0
32. Anything Else (2003)
R | 108 min | Comedy, Romance
Jerry Falk learns a lesson the hard way when he falls head over heels in love with a beautiful but flighty girl, Amanda.
Votes: 27,895 | Gross: $3.20M
Underrated. Biggs isn't perfect but he's does his best and it works out. Woody for me steals the show acting wise (even though he is the same as always he works very well here). The movie is funny as hell and pay attention to Devito 7.9
33. You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010)
R | 98 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Sally's parents' marriage breaks up when her father undergoes a mid-life crisis and impulsively weds a prostitute. Meanwhile, Sally's own marriage also begins to disintegrate.
Votes: 41,168 | Gross: $3.25M
What is Josh Brolin doing in a Woody Allen movie. Well he did whatever he did very well. Typical story of people loving people who are with other people... and a writer trying to write. Anthony Hopkins... I've said enough 7.8
34. To Rome with Love (2012)
R | 112 min | Comedy, Music, Romance
The lives of some visitors and residents of Rome and the romances, adventures and predicaments they get into.
Votes: 78,362 | Gross: $16.69M
The IMDB rating doesn't do this movie justice. The opera singer story alone is funny as hell let alone the rest of the movie. Ellen page was a bit miscast in this movie cause Juno just cannot let me escape my vision of her. Doesn't really focus on Rome as much as Midnight in Paris focuses on Paris. Its just ... a few stories in Rome and they're great 7.8
R | 88 min | Comedy
Seven stories are trying to answer the question: what is sex? Or maybe they are not trying.
I could imagine being 17 in the year 72 and this being the ultimate summer comedy - would have a better rating but some of the sketches just weren't that funny. The final sketch is just hilarious though. 7.7
36. September (1987)
PG | 83 min | Drama
At a summer house in Vermont, neighbor Howard falls in love with Lane, who's in a relationship with Peter, who's falling for Stephanie, who's married with children.
Votes: 8,246 | Gross: $0.49M
Can't say too much about this movie cause it is kind of not at all Woody Allen like except for the adultery. Great acting and great story confined to a house. Very interesting 7.7
37. Café Society (2016)
PG-13 | 96 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
In the 1930s, a Bronx native moves to Hollywood and falls in love with a young woman who is seeing a married man.
Votes: 60,290 | Gross: $11.10M
The most colorful of his films, another sort of gangster story interwoven with trying to break out into the film business in early 1930's. Steward was unusually charming and Eisenberg was Eisenberg but the movie as a whole worked well 7.7
38. Small Time Crooks (2000)
PG | 94 min | Comedy, Crime
A loser of a crook and his wife strike it rich when a botched bank job's cover business becomes a spectacular success.
Votes: 34,330 | Gross: $17.07M
A funny movie about the fact that being rich carries its own mentality with it. The movie is pretty funny with a few problems that hold it back 7.7
39. Cassandra's Dream (2007)
PG-13 | 108 min | Crime, Drama, Romance
The tale of two brothers with serious financial woes. When a third party proposes they turn to crime, things go badly and the two become enemies.
Votes: 47,645 | Gross: $0.97M
A very interesting story with great acting but boring film-making. Its similar to Match Point in a way. The film-making is simple, slow and elegant but in Match Point it brings out the Dostoevsky - like story. Here it is just makes it tedious but still the story and performances make up for the rest as much as they can 7.6
40. Everyone Says I Love You (1996)
R | 101 min | Comedy, Musical, Romance
A New York girl sets her father up with a beautiful woman in a troubled marriage while her stepsister gets engaged.
Votes: 33,162 | Gross: $9.71M
A low budget Woody Allen musical with a Woody Allen story. I don't believe you can make a brilliant musical without a higher budget for surreal musical segments and scenes. It's still funny as hell, great acting and the songs fit in some cases. (Woody isn't a great singer to be honest) 7.6
41. Wonder Wheel (2017)
PG-13 | 101 min | Drama
On Coney Island in the 1950s, a lifeguard tells the story of a middle-aged carousel operator, his beleaguered wife, and the visitor who turns their lives upside-down.
Votes: 18,224 | Gross: $1.40M
A very typical Woody, gangster story but with the addition of a near perfect Kate Winslet performance. The rest of the cast is commendable as well 7.5
42. Celebrity (1998)
R | 113 min | Comedy, Drama
The fortunes of a husband and wife differ drastically after they divorce.
Votes: 22,577 | Gross: $5.03M
Poor editing made this movie less impactful than it could have been. Branagh gave a great Woody performance and there were a lot of laughs in the film. It does jump a bit too much making it hard to follow but its still quite worth the watch. 7.4
43. Scoop (2006)
PG-13 | 96 min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
An American journalism student in London scoops a big story, and begins an affair with an aristocrat as the incident unfurls.
Votes: 75,176 | Gross: $10.53M
This movie is torn apart too much and its really not that bad at all. Fun story, fine acting and I actually liked the postmortem deus ex machina puppet that pushes the story forward. Its a different type of storytelling 7.4
44. Shadows and Fog (1991)
PG-13 | 85 min | Comedy
With a serial strangler on the loose, a bookkeeper wanders around town searching for the vigilante group intent on catching the killer.
Votes: 14,834 | Gross: $2.74M
This is the weirdest Woody movie (filming and cinematography wise). Still the performances are great (Woody in particular does a good job, and Malkovich) 7.4
45. A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982)
PG | 88 min | Comedy
A wacky inventor and his wife invite two other couples for a weekend party at a romantic summer house in the 1900s countryside.
Votes: 16,910 | Gross: $9.08M
This movie disappointed me in a few ways. There were quite a bit of jokes that fell flat for me and quite a few scenes that were boring. The movie did do comedy well though and it is still better than most modern comedies. There are quite a lot of jokes that work too and when they work they work. 7.4
46. Hollywood Ending (2002)
PG-13 | 112 min | Comedy, Romance
A director is forced to work with his ex-wife, who left him for the boss of the studio bankrolling his new film. But the night before the first day of shooting, he develops a case of psychosomatic blindness.
Votes: 24,142 | Gross: $4.84M
This movie is... fine. Just fine. There are highs and lows. The highs are high and the lows are quite low. The highs make the movie very watchable and a pleasure to watch. 7.3
47. The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001)
PG-13 | 103 min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
An insurance investigator and an efficency expert who hate each other are both hypnotized by a crooked hypnotist with a jade scorpion into stealing jewels.
Votes: 35,374 | Gross: $7.50M
For now the most typical cliché Woody Allen movie. I didn't like it too much but it had its funny moments. The whole concept of the scorpion in the movie lost me a bit towards the middle when it became the main plot device 6.9
48. What's Up, Tiger Lily? (1966)
PG | 80 min | Adventure, Comedy, Crime
