20140329: [20151011]
As of 20151011, I don't remember much about the movie, but from my instant comments and my love of Annie Hall (which also stars Woody Allen and Diane Keaton), I have the feeling I enjoyed it.

While the movie is not directed by Woody Allen, it is based on a play written by him and having seen a handful of Woody Allen movies, the plot definitely has his name on it.

As mentioned, this is a delayed post, but I would watch this movie again.

Instant Comments:
The film opens with the final sequence of Casablanca (1942).
Haha. His increasingly gaping mouth.
Ha! He got knocked out after sipping some alcohol and spitting it out.
"My God! Can't you cook anything but TV dinners?" "Who bothers to cook 'em? I suck 'em frozen."

They both have analysts. Haha.
"The two of you should get married and move into a hospital."
He's still on the phone.
Haha. His insanity.

Haha. "I'm going home. I think today I'm gonna brush all my teeth."
Ohhh! Gross. He held the Canoe aftershave lotion in his mouth and then swallowed it!"
"Gang Bang."
"I love the rain. It washes memories off the sidewalk of life."

Allan: That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollock, isn't it?
Museum Girl: Yes, it is.
Allan: What does it say to you?
Museum Girl: It restates the negativeness of the universe. The hideous lonely emptiness of existence. Nothingness. The predicament of Man forced to live in a barren, Godless eternity like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void with nothing but waste, horror and degradation, forming a useless bleak straitjacket in a black absurd cosmos.
Allan: What are you doing Saturday night?
Museum Girl: Committing suicide.
Allan: What about Friday night?

Haha. This time Bogart ruined it for him.
"I was nowhere NEAR Oakland!"
What were you thinking about while we were doing it?
Willie Mays.
You always think of baseball players when you make love?
It keeps me going.
I couldn't figure out why you kept yelling "slide."
"That's beautiful." "It's from Casablanca, I waited my whole life to say it."
