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

Did You Know?


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 »


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 »


Sam: You're the best I've ever seen at procrastinating.
Max: I should be, procrastination is one of my favorite hobbies... Isn't it funny that my two favorite hobbies rhyme?

User Reviews

Burning Annie is a fantastic film.
6 April 2004 | by rkelly74See all my reviews

I saw Burning Annie at Clark University on April 3, 2004. Burning Annie is about a bunch of college kids who blame their poor luck with relationships on their ritualistic watching of Woody Allen's Annie Hall. The script is brilliantly witty and would seem to be begging for comparison to Woody Allen himself, if not for its moments of modesty and self-deprecation. It doesn't take itself too seriously and that is its charm. The film's editing was fun and playful, fitting into the rest of the film perfectly. Absent of any stars, the acting was quite impressive. I wouldn't be surprised to see Gary Lundy in another film very soon. As a college kid, I can completely relate to the characters and storyline. They hit the nail on the head with this movie. Overall, this was a superb film, and I would recommend Burning Annie to anyone looking to have a good time with a movie.
