"You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger" is the latest disappointment from writer-director, Woody Allen. It details the messy love lives of London adults.

Anthony Hopkins leaves his wife for a younger woman; Josh Brolin is flirting with his sexy neighbor; and his wife, played by Naomi Watts, is flirting with her boss played by Antonio Banderas. Big stars, decent performances, but this is a movie filled with selfish characters that are hard to like.

"You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger" is rated R and simply ends without much resolution. It does have some good moments but overall this is a lesser writing effort from The Oscar winning film-maker. Funny? Not really. And, overall, the experience is forgettable.
