i really liked Mighty Aphrodite for some reason, and ...Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Sex was hilarious.
I was bored with the others I've seen

I'm a big Woody Allen fan. I've seen 16 of his films, so yeah, I have plenty more I'm getting around to, including three (not Annie Hall) that were mentioned in this thread.. My favorite is probably Manhattan, but the funniest might be Take the Money and Run. I love his humor and his simple directing. I also like his early stand up.

Anyone who can one-up Roman Polanski is okay in my book.

I've never thought of myself as a fan, per se, but I can't think of a movie of his that I've seen that I didn't like.

I have enjoyed his movies I have seen, but felt a few were pretty overrated. "Crimes and Misdemeanors" and "Match Point" were damn good though.

His wifaughter is apparently a fan.

I think he's a sick, semi talented @$$wipe, myself. I too, think his movies suck.

It's not his daughter. Not his adopted daughter either.

Sure. It was his wife's adopted daughter. Does that make it somehow more palatable and less unsavory?

No, it wasn't that, either, Brock.

Never really thought of Woody as a standout director, so much as a screenwriter and atmosphere creator.
He's Kevin Smith for the modern Manhattan Jew.

Was he or was he not, at one point in her life a "guardian"?

He's a sick F@ck.

Your statements are wrong. I want say you're lying, you're just ignorant on the topic.

Hey, I like his work, and I don't mind spending a few minutes "defending" him with the truth from people who spend a few minutes trashing him with untrue things about him.

"Soon-Yi was 8 years old when adopted by Ms. Farrow and the conductor Andre Previn during a trip to Korea.

Ms. Farrow, who starred in many of Allen's films, was his companion for more than a decade, although, as Allen has pointed out, the couple never lived together, and spent their nights at separate homes. In 1992, the relationship between her adopted daughter and Allen came to light when she discovered nude pictures of Ms. Previn, who was then 21, in Allen's apartment.

The messy aftermath centered on a bitter custody battle for Satchel, the biological son of Ms. Farrow and Allen, and their adopted daughter, Dylan.

During the custody case, Ms. Farrow accused Allen of fondling Dylan.


The director's marriage to Ms. Previn has produced a convoluted skein of Allen-Farrow relationships that have echoes of family life in a L'il Abner cartoon. For example, two of Soon-Yi's siblings, Seamus and Eliza, have now become her stepchildren. "

All of Allen's fans defend him in the same way... The guy had a few really good movies, but his personal life outside of his "loyal wacko" fans who refuse to accept the fact that the guy has Jacko-size mental problems...

IMO the most overrated director is Spike Lee...

personally i couldn't care less about his personal life...

geez, creative artists (musicians, painters, poets, actors) are some of the most wacko people around

i don't defend the guys actions, i just think that he's got talent for writing and directing

Iowanian, thanks for finding out the truth for yourself.

Jenson, thanks for overlooking the fact that his wife, is now her half brother-sister's step mother, and that he's also been acused of fondleling another child.

I don't understand your first statement. It seems more simple to me: Woody Allen's girlfriend had an adopted child. Allen fell in love with the adopted child when she grew up. That's it.

Now, he's been accused by the woman he's divorcing that he fondled (I assume, it means in an inappropriate way, because fondling is something all young children receive) the girl he adopted. Farrow also accused him of other things during the trial that were never proven either. Don't things like untrue accusations occur in divorces if one side wants the children badly enough? Isn't it possible at least that this emotional actress could make some exaggerations or lies?

So.....Allen would have been a "father figure" to the girl, "until she was grown up"....and THEN he effed her.

And you don't see why thats an issue? Its worse than a teacher boning a student.

Don't worry Jenson...Alot of Michael Jackson fans don't care that he plays hide the pickle with kids, either. So keep on whistling Billy Jean.

No. Soon-Yi was not adopted by Allen. She had an adopted father. Did she know Allen? Of course. Did she spend some time with him? Yes, with Farrow and the other children. Was Allen even close to being a "father figure" to her? Absolutely not.

woody never was legally a guardian to soon-yi
