Woody Allen's comedy, 'You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,' follows a pair of married couples played by Anthony Hopkins, Gemma Jones, Naomi Watts and Josh Brolin as their passions, ambitions, and anxieties lead them into trouble and out of their minds. Despite these characters' attempts to dodge their problems with pipe dreams and outlandish plans, their efforts lead only to trouble, irrationality, and perilous hot water. Taking its title from the prediction fortune tellers use to beguile their marks, 'You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger', illustrates with wry humor how easy it is for our illusions and the assumption that the grass is greener elsewhere can make fools of us all.
The writing is good and the acting is superb. ? The New Yorker
