Everyone says Raymond

Dir. Woody Allen
Starring Natasha Lyonne, Drew Barrymore, Edward Norton, Alan Alda, Goldie Hawn,

Movies focusing on a quirky family tend to be fun, there’s a lot of dynamics to work with. Everyone Says I Love You starts off in that familiar place, but branches off and follows some of the family-members’ search for love. It’s not really a romantic comedy, more a comedy about romance and love.

The tongue-in-cheek narration by Natasha Lyonne is just one of the movie clichés used to their fullest, we also get some very Allen-esque neuroses (yes, plural), a rebellious teenage son, dates in romantic cityscapes, and a happy ending. No, I don’t think that’s much of a spoiler. It may not all be laugh-out-loud funny, but it will make you smile, as everything seems to be twisted to be just a bit off kilter.

Oh yeah, it’s also a musical in case you didn’t notice the category. There’s nothing to critique about that aspect, it works very well with the rest of the movie. It can probably be seen as a spoof on musicals, but most jokes have a seed of truth anyway. And it is quite impressive to see scenes this long with no cuts, much less song and dance numbers. It shows some of the love that went into making this movie I suppose.
