A good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago and since I had it on DVD, I was really eager to check it out again. In fact, I first saw it when it was released but, to be honest, at the time, I didn't care much for it and I never really understood why it was such a critical hit back then but maybe I was just too young (14-15 years old) to really appreciate it. Well, I'm really glad I gave it a 2nd chance since it turned to be really enjoyable this time around. Indeed, even though I still don't think it was Woody Allen's deepest movie, it was still really funny and entertaining. Basically, even though the premise was actually rather straightforward and predictable, the dialogues were really good and some of the supporting characters were quite hilarious. I still wasn't really impressed by the main character but I won't blame John Cusack who gave a decent performance, it's just that the other characters around him were always more entertaining and interesting than him. Still, I really liked that, at the end, he came to the conclusion that he was not so talented and that he didn't care about the show business world after all, when in fact he finally just had his very first hit. Anyway, to conclude, this movie was much more enjoyable that I remembered and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Woody Allen's work.
