Default "She had a high I.Q. and a low cut dress"

Bonus points to whoever can identify the film and agree that there should be more lines like that in cinema as a whole...

Woody Allen. Should there be more like it? Not his funniest writing but I have the greatest respect for Allen as a filmmaker. In many ways he defines success, whether or not you like his movies.

"Whatever Works." It took 30 seconds to find the answer with Google.

I have not seen it.

Google is totally cheating!

Not saying it's his best line ever, but yeah, Woody will always be at the top of my list of writers.

With this film, he finally found a worthy replacement for himself. So many false notes, but with Larry David, he found the perfect actor to replace himself as the brilliant, neurotic, paranoid, liberal, intellectual, talky character of the NY Jewish persuasion. Many have tried, but most have failed. Even the brilliant Will Farell trying to "do" Woody sounded wrong. But for LD, yeah, it came pretty naturally. At least Owen Wilson tried to make the part his own, instead of trying to mimmick Allen's character. But with Larry, to me it was as if they were two sides of the same coin. Totally seamless, different but the same.

And this should probably have been posted in the "film" forum...

Meh. I felt like I had seen that movie half a dozen times before. I love Allen's work in general, though.

If you like Woody Allen you might be interested in an homage to Annie Hall I co-wrote, produced, & co-directed: http://www.BurningAnnie.com

I was expecting you to be plugging some new film noir.

That line is akin to something in an Elmore Leonard book. Or James Elroy.

Trivia: "Whatever Works" was meant for Zero Mostel, after he and Woody worked on "The Front", but Zero passed away and Woody put the script in a drawer somewhere.
