The New York Times dumps on Woody Allen's latest film - Wonder Wheel

'Wonder Wheel, Woody Allen’s latest movie, is one of his more unfortunate contributions to cinema.'

Kate will never get that second Oscar now!

Kate Winslet plays an unhappily married woman whose affair with a local Romeo is derailed when he falls for her stepdaughter.

The NYT will never again give Allen a good review. Very un-PC, and they're very leftist.

Kate will never be the the best "c/kate".

The sheer number of sympathetic puff pieces they've done on Trumpsters and Nazis suggest they are anything but "leftist."

Are they still doing that weekly editorial specifically designed to say one good thing about Trump?

Manhola's review is fantastic, and I think she's right: no one wants to psychoanalyze his dippy movies, but year after year he's practically begging us to.

Isn't Timberlake too old to be playing a lifeguard?

Haven't watched a Woody Allen since the Soon Yi scandal decades ago. Too creepy. This man is in no position to philosophize about life, relationships or the human condition. If his films were dark and honest they might be interesting, but he insists on presenting his perverse worldview as "normal." Ick.

Does anyone want to even see this film?

I guess no.

Yikes--that's Jim Belushi?! I thought it was John Goodman!

The Boston Globe (Ty Burr) pans it. " Timberlake gives the most vapid, awkward performance of his career. "

At this late date, I find everything about and around Woody Allen--him, his films, his stars, his fans, his detractors--unspeakably tiresome. And that includes Mia and Ronan. I wish all concerned would just go awaaaaaaay.

Jussie Timberfake also has a career because of a kiddie fiddler.

There's a reason "Manhattan" was his high watermark, you know.

The last time I saw a Woody Allen movie was about the same time I gave away my Michael Jackson CDs.

BLUE JASMINE anyone? I'm sorry. It was an excellent film. The performances all were brilliant. With Cate Blanchett giving one of the most extraordinary film performances by an actress ever really. Another level. The script which uses the STREETCAR parallels, mixed with the Madoff scandal. It was a perfect idea that totally worked. And I'm not trying to defend anything about Woody Allen's life here. At all. But simply as a film, BLUE JASMINE was a knock-out all around.

R16=true hilarity at its finest. A rich mind. A genius scope. And exciting possibilities.

Look, just because the passable BLUE JASMINE was light-years better than the pure garbage that makes up the rest of Allen's late oeuvre, that's still no need to get your panties in a twist.

Cate the cunt played a demented social climber well, I wonder if she just played herself.

At least Mel Brooks knew when to quit.
