Anything Else is a trifle.
It’s an interesting movie with not one but two quirky characters – Woody Allen, who plays a sixtysomething comic and Jason Biggs, who plays his protege, an up-and-coming young comic.
According to its entry on IMDB, Anything Else is:
A contemporary romantic comedy set in New York city about the relationship between an older guy and his younger protege. The older guy guides the younger through a messy and hilarious love story.
I don’t know about hilarious. But it’s mildly amusing.
Woody Allen … David Dobel
Jason Biggs … Jerry Falk
Fisher Stevens … Manager
Anthony Arkin … Pip’s Comic
Danny DeVito … Harvey Wexler
Christina Ricci … Amanda Chase
KaDee Strickland …Brooke
Jimmy Fallon … Bob
But it’s a trifle. And life’s too short to trifle with trifles.
Even a trifle about relationships from Woody Allen.
Even when the lead actress is hottie Christina Ricci.
Well, okay. Maybe Anything Else is worth trifling with.
