Whatever Works, 2009 - ★★★½

Whatever Works, 2009 - ★★★½

"In the end the romantic aspirations of our youth are reduced to, Whatever Works" Woody Allens clearly personal art imitating life tale of a man falling in love with a woman decades younger, keeps just the right side of being totally cheesy (and dare I say creepy) because of the great use of Larry David. He's the first to accept hes not a diverse ranged actor so essentially plays himself just like he does wonderfully in Curb (come HBO get it on again), but it works a treat.

I finally caught up with this gem because of a scavenger hunt poll task here on letterboxd, which asked for a film rotting away on your watchlist/netflix queue. And while its neither Woody or Larry at their heady best, its still solid.
