Stupid Tuscaloosa

Let me just say, if you're looking for Woody Allen's Manhattan in Tuscaloosa, give up! It's not possible.

I went to 3 different rental places and two stores looking for this movie and came up empty.

I went to Oz first to see if we had it used (we didn't), then target to see if they had it at all (nope), then Blockbuster (didn't have room for Manhattan because they needed that space for that Lindsay Lohan Herbie movie) then two, count 'em two, Movie Galleries. (One of which is almost nothing but porn now.)

Finally, gave up and asked my friend Ben. He let me borrow it because he's cool, unlike Blockbuster (oh, i'm bitter).

Anyway, definitely give this movie a shot. I still think Annie Hall is my favorite movie, but this one is amazing. Allen's got his usual keen wit and humor here. Plus the black and white photography of New York is stunning. The cast is pretty amazing: Allen, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep, Mariel Hemingway. Anyway, I loved this movie and so did my friend Gina. I think this may have been her first Allen flick, but she really enjoyed it. So two thumbs up.
