Two Line Reviews - #388

Movie: Mighty Aphrodite (1995)

Plot: A couple decide to adopt a child; When the adopted child grows into a kid high on IQ, the father is curious to find who his parents were. When he gets to know his mother, he tries to smoothen and set her life up so that it becomes socially reputable!

What Works?
  • An unusual plot of this kind is something only Woody Allen can come up with and narrate convincingly!
  • The mythical characters that act as his conscience, their songs and the way they lament are fun to watch and still carry strong meaningful messages for life!
  • Woody Allen, the dumb-headed wannabe actress have nice chemistry going on between them and that surely creates an impact.
  • The pig clock in the lady's house is an epic :)
Interesting, funny and special too!
