569. Sleeper

Sleeper
1973
Directed by Woody Allen








This is the beginning of many Woody Allen raves you will read on my blog.  This makes my mother and sister very uncomfortable, considering Allen's creepy personal life.  I did end up taking down the poster of him in my room, but I still find his movies hilarious.  Compromise.

Miles Monroe is cryogenically frozen for 200 years and revived in the future.  He is awakened by members of a rebellion, hoping to use him as a spy.  Hilarity ensues and of course, Diane Keaton is adorable.

Well this certainly isn't the strongest Woody Allen comedy we will see.  I just watched Annie Hall again a couple nights ago (and forced a reluctant friend to watch it with me) and it is hard not to compare it.  Still, it is witty and fun and loads better than any comedy that has come out recently.

RATING: ****-

Interesting Facts:

Woody Allen consulted with Isaac Asimov about the scientific feasibility of his movie.
