Alice (1990)

Director: Woody Allen. Cast: Mia Farrow, William Hurt, Joe Mantegna, Keye Luke, Cybill Shepherd, Alec Baldwin, Blythe Danner, Bernadette Peters, Elle Macpherson, Bob Balaban. 102 min. Rated PG-13. Comedy/Crama.

A year after the terrific Crimes and Misdemeanors, Woody Allen makes the lighter female counterpart of the story, about a high-end New York stay-home mother (Farrow) who suddenly has a midlife crisis and falls in love with a saxophone-player (Mantegna) who walks into her path. And like any Allen movie, has a ghost playing her conscience, giving her love and life advice. As though the repetitiveness wasn't enough, minor characters come and go without much of an impact on the end result. This is one Allen movie too many.
