whatever works (2009 ) - woody allen

I have grown into a fan of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', in which Larry David is superb, albeit playing an exaggerated version of himself (season 8 starting this weekend!).
I am also a fan of Woody Allen, he has done some great films in the past, plus some of his stand up and stories used to be really funny.
This however, l nearly switched off half way through. It is not a good Woody Allen film, and Larry David does not have such a good role as he does in 'Curb'. It's not that funny, not that romantic, and not that good of a story.
Boris, an old cranky man (David), meets and marries a young girl (Evan Rachel Wood), then her mom comes to town, followed by her father. Everyone changes and life is random.
It's a good job l have plenty of spare time on my hands at the moment, or l would be really pissed off with the two hours l wasted watching this.
Christ, l sound like Boris in the movie (and nearly as old).
