Annie Hall

The film that ushered in the modern romanic comedy, <em>Annie Hall</em><em> </em><em> </em>centers around a neurotic New York comedian, Alvy Singer, and his relationship with the quirky Annie Hall. Usually refered to as a turning point for Woody Allen as this was his first film to center more on characters and plot than on one liners and jokes (though there are plenty to be found in this film). <em>Annie Hall</em> is one of the few comedys to win a Best Picture Oscar and has become the reference point for most romantic comedys.
