Remember when Hollywood finally got Robert De Niro and Al Pacino in the same movie? And it was sort of like having two great point guards on the same team, but no center? Remember when the Arizona Diamondbacks somehow got the two best starting pitchers in the Major Leagues Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson on the same staff, and it was so awesome they beat the Yankees in the 2001 World Series?
The pairing of the reigning kings of white male neurosis, Woody Allen and Larry David, in Allens newest film, Whatever Works, is going to be one of those two scenarios: crisp perfection or disastrous overload. But which one? How do we decide? How do we get to the Miami Beach Cinematheque by 9:15 p.m. when we have dinner with the Epsteins at 8? Should we call 305-67-FILMS or go to mbcinema.com for advance ten-dollar tickets? And then theres parking. Theres never a space on Washington Avenue. Can your brother Duane give us a ride?
