Consensus: Filled with poignant performances and devastating humor, Annie Hall represents a quantum leap for Woody Allen and remains an American classic.

Richard Brody
New Yorker

Allen joins the Catskills tummler's anything-for-a-laugh antics with a Eurocentric art-house self-awareness and a psychoanalytic obsession in baring his sexual desires and frustrations, romantic disasters, and neurotic inhibitions.

Joseph McBride

A touching and hilarious love story that is Allen's most three-dimensional film to date.

John Marriott
Radio Times

Although Woody Allen had still to acquire great technical strength as a film-maker, this was the movie where he found his own singular voice, a voice that echoes across events with a mixture of exuberance and introspection.

This is the link between Allen's "earlier, funnier" stuff and more probing works like Interiors and Manhattan. Would that we all could build such masterful bridges.

Chicago Reader

Visually and structurally it's a mess, but many of the situations are genuinely clever, and there are plenty of memorable gags.

Movie Mezzanine

It's a testament to the timelessness of Annie Hall that most of its references to pop culture or current events are unsuccessful in dating the film.

Personal as the story he is telling may be, what separates this film from Allen's own past work and most other recent comedy is its general believability.

Time Out

If you can forgive the fact that it's a ragbag of half-digested intellectual ideas dressed up with trendy intellectual references, you should have a good laugh.

Annie Hall, for all its vagaries, is a funny, often touching, sometimes astute picture.

I guess I just don't like films with Woody Allen in them. I try to watch them, but he prattles on and on.

Creative for its time, and it must have been a real shock to Allen's fans - who'd see this coming after Bananas, Love and Death, etc.? - but it's… More

I liked this very much, especially the dialogue.
