Woody Allen

Most people seem to consider "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion"
failure, either because of the cast or joke - a-minute script. But I
I think they are wrong in that. It's just to make some sixty
years late. It's really a tribute to the sort of comedy / mystery
occurred in the early forties - the same time period in
sets the film. I think most people who did not. Maybe
These days people do not watch enough old movies.

Everybody is right, of course, when we say Woody Allen was miscast
(Woody Allen and since we did the casting, it deserves the blame). But
That is not a great sin. Basically, this is a movie that should have
Been a vehicle for Bob Hope, but since Bob Hope was not exactly
Available in 2001, had someone represent him. I daresay
There is an actor in Hollywood these days you can do a good
Bob Hope, and since no, I have to say that Woody Allen is not as bad

In fact, I remember reading that some Bob Hope was a major
Inspiration for the young Woody Allen, and was bitten on the afternoon
Hope told the sixties when some bad jokes about him. Perhaps
all these years later, Woody Allen decided that all was forgiven.

Either way, keep it bothers you that the lead actor
Some 30 years is too old for the role. Also, try to remember that nasty

never did.

You know, Hollywood could find another actor who could play a role
of how Bob Hope did, back in its heyday. And when that happens,
This film would be an excellent candidate for a remake.
Parafraseo the memory of Allen's speech at the Oscars 2001: "When the Academy
called me, I was surprised - as you know, my film, 'The Curse of the Jade Scorpion
" not had been nominated for anything. I thought that maybe
had called to apologize. "At that time, I thought this was just another
Free obsolete joke. And I am sure it was. But after seeing the film, I am
starting to think that there was a point, or at least as much a point

Three of the categories, which are ludicrously called "technicals" -
art direction, cinematography costume design contest - photography Allen was much

old-time romantic comedy, set in the 1940's, which could only be established in
1940 (Allen and has a touch of magic when it comes to 20th Century period
Parts; do not ask me to explain it), in which several cliches - one of

Pressed into service of new features. When Briggs and Fitzgerald were
