Precocious I

What’s Up, Tiger Lily?

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 16, 2015

Near where Woody Allen started out, film-wise. Compared with the MST3K guys, who to put it mildly took this format and ran a very long way with it, this is surprisingly halting. But making fun can be fun, and there are certainly a few successful zingers in here. The later semi/self-serious auteur—some of you don’t like that I just used that word—can distract us from the jokes-and-more-jokes sensibility that defined Allen’s early work.

The Loving Spoonful parts are really silly.
