It has been a while since I saw this flick but I’m pretty sure I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. Even though it turned out to be the most expensive movies directed by Woody Allen (mostly due to the fact it was set in the 40’s) , it is usually considered a minor effort for this director. In fact, even Woody Allen himself thought that it was one of his w... read more

Woody Allen has singled out The Curse of the Jade Scorpion as one of his worst films for his failure to find a suitable leading man and having to take over the role himself. He’s only half-right. The Curse of the Jade Scorpion is incredibly minor Allen, but it’s far from his worst piece of material.   But he was spot-on about a major failing of the film being stuck with him in the leading ... read more

The Curse of the Jade Scorpion

“Woody Allen has singled out The Curse of the Jade Scorpion as one of his worst films for his failure to find a suitable leading man and having to take over the role himself. He’s only half-right. The Curse of the Jade Scorpion is incredibly minor Allen, but it’s far from his worst piece of material.   But he was spot-on about a major failing of the film being stuck with him in the leading role. He originally wanted Tom Hanks or Jack Nicholson, either one of them would have brought an extra spark that’s currently missing. Allen also generates a kind of anti-chemistry with Helen Hunt that’s fascinating. We believe them as two people get under each other’s skin, but they don’t come even remotely close to selling the inevitable romance.   Allen is clearly aiming for a combin” read more

In fact, even Woody Allen himself thought that it was one of his worst movies, above all because he never planned to be the lead but his other choices apparently declined. Personally, I always had a hard time to care about his comedies mixed with a periode piece (see also ‘Magic in the Moonlight’, ‘Bullets Over Broadway’, ‘Radio Days’) and this one was probably the worst of the bunch. Indeed, it is a rather awkward mix involving a love triangle, some” read more
