Woody Allen’s Whatever Works

Larry David plays a slight variation on his Curb Your Enthusiasm incarnation, spouting some of the most articulate rants on humanity in Woody Allen’s new comedy. I enjoyed last year’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, but this is definitely better. It’s a spectacularly executed comedy farce, with the action constantly escalating along the way, adhering to the old comedy formula of putting the characters through hell for big laughs. Boris Yellnikoff, played by David, attempts and fails to kill himself. This leads to him marrying a young girl, and while the plot spirals into absurdity, it’s so much fun, there’s no point caring. The sweet ending wraps everything into a nice, neat and sweat package. While I’m usually a fan of gritty reality, sometimes it’s refreshing to experience a ‘happily ever after’.
