Storyline

A dark comedy about Max, who thinks Woody Allen's "Annie Hall" is a cautionary tale about the futility of romance. Just as he begins to suspect the movie is ruining his love life, his world is turned inside-out by a girl who just might be the modern equivalent of Annie Hall herself. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The name of the punk-rock band playing in the college bar is "Anhedonia." "Anhedonia," a psychological term meaning the inability to be happy, was Woody Allen's working title for Annie Hall (1977) See more »

Goofs

When Max is describing his group he says Sam is the "Alpha male" of the group, which primarily consists of "zeta males." The implication is the other males would be the lowest social caste, but that would be the "omega males" because Omega is the last letter in the Greek alphabet. Zeta is the 7th letter. See more »

Quotes

Julie: As if a fast car can ever make up for a small dick.
Max: If it did, I'd be down at the Porsche dealership with a ski mask and Uzi.

Sweet and funny -- worth multiple viewings.
2 January 2006 | by jtn3See all my reviews

I just saw Burning Annie in a private screening and was impressed. It plays like a smarter, nerdier version of your standard Hollywood college-age hookup movie. These people think, talk, and act much like me and my friends do -- their lives center as much around pop culture references and video games as they do love. The humor comes from a dead-on portrayal of all the types of people you meet in college; they're slightly exaggerated but always ring true. This is the kind of movie you watch, enjoy, leave feeling good, then find you're remembering funny scenes and bits of dialog days later. This is definitely a film that deserves a wider audience than it's enjoyed so far.
