Whatever Works

After a failed suicide attempt, brilliant New York misanthrope Boris Yellnikoff (Larry David) forsakes his posh upper-class existence for meager accommodations in Chinatown. He meets his exact opposite in Melody (Evan Rachel Wood), a pageant queen from the Deep South who's long on sweetness but short on smarts. Surprisingly, Boris and Melody marry, but the sparks really fly when Melody's born-again Christian mother (Patricia Clarkson) arrives and finds liberation instead of damnation.

Awful beyond words. In a nutshell, ignorant southerners move to New York and find enlightenment - Woody Allen style. A fan of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", I can't believe I was suckered into paying $10.00 for this load of garbage. From the very first ridiculously fake southern accent, to the shallow and absurd stereotypes of southerners who drop to their knees in prayer at the drop of a hat, this is a lazy and self-indulgent film, even by Woody Allen's standards. Unless you want to sit and be insulted for 2 hours, don't waste your money.
