In any relationship, one person always does the heavy lifting.
A contemporary romantic comedy set in new york city about the relationship between an older guy and his younger protege. The older guy guides the younger through a messy and hilarious love story. In any relationship, one person always does the heavy lifting.

"With Anything Else, Woody Allen proves himself an old dog capable of thinking up some new tricks.   Chris Kaltenbach, Baltimore Sun
"Has some of the wit, sass and sexual candor of an Annie Hall. But it covers the same kind of territory with more bite and bile.  Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Editor's Note
Jason Biggs and Christina Ricci star as a mismatched couple in Woody Allen's funny and well-made romantic comedy ANYTHING ELSE. Biggs plays Jerry Falk, a young comedy writer looking to make it big, while Ricci is Amanda, a self-absorbed free spirit whom men go wild for. They fall for each other instantly near the beginning of the film, then spend the rest of the movie trying to work out their very complex and complicated relationship, especially after her mother (Stockard Channing) moves in to their small apartment to live with them.

With echoes of such classic Allen fare as ANNIE HALL, ANYTHING ELSE is a lighthearted look at young love in the Big Apple. Allen himself stars as David Dobel, an older comedy writer who mentors Jerry, often on walks through Central Park, but it seems that Dobel has a bit of an anger management problem. Once again, New York City is virtually a character unto itself, as Allen includes scenes in such Gotham places as the Village Vanguard jazz club, Isabella's restaurant, Roosevelt Island, Sheepshead Bay, and the Quad Cinema. Good supporting work is turned in by Danny DeVito as Falk's manager. The soundtrack includes songs by Billie Holiday, Ravi Shankar, Teddy Wilson, Lester Young, Moby, and Diana Krall, who appears in the film.
