Movie Release Date:October 8, 2010
DVD Release Date:February 15, 2011

Unpleasant people behave selfishly until it stops, rather than ends, in this latest trifle from Woody Allen, who once again manages to persuade A-list talent to help him make a C-list movie. It’s another romantic roundelay, with a divorced couple […]
