Neurotic New York comedian Alvy Singer falls in love with the ditsy Annie Hall. IMDB 8.2 rating from over 149,943 users

One of the truest, most bittersweet romances on film. In it, Allen plays a thinly disguised version of himself: Alvy Singer, a successful–if neurotic–television comedian living in Manhattan. Annie (the wholesomely luminous Dianne Keaton) is a Midwestern transplant who dabbles in photography and sings in small clubs. When the two meet, the sparks are immediate–if repressed. Alone in her apartment for the first time, Alvy and Annie navigate a minefield of self-conscious “is-this-person-someone-I’d-want-to-get-involved-with?” conversation. As they speak, subtitles flash their unspoken thoughts: the likes of “I’m not smart enough for him” and “I sound like a jerk.” Despite all their caution, they connect, and we’re swept up in the flush of their new romance. Amazon 4.1 stars from over 427 users

Woody Allen’s neurotic and original classic ‘Annie Hall’ still holds up as a poignant comedy to this day. Not only is it hilarious, but Allen’s fresh techniques and style compliment the film and place it above and beyond other comedies of the era. An exuberant mix of heart, laughs, and societal issues, ‘Annie Hall’ is sure to capture any contemporary audience as much as it did back when it was first released. Rotten Tomatoes 98% / 93% audience
