Diary of an Ass Monkey

Saw Melinda & Melinda this weekend. Not bad, but disappointing. It had a very interesting concept that unfortunately Woody Allen just decided to abandon after setting it up. The concept was that you could tell the same story as either a comedy or a tragedy. However, I guess he was worried people would get bored seeing the same events twice, so he ended up making the stories radically different. It was further muddled by the fact that the comedy version wasn't funny enough and the tragic version was nowhere near tragic enough (for my tastes).
