ANNIE HALL's New York, then and now

In December I shined some SUNlight on Nick Carr, who chronicles his interesting discoveries as a film location scout on his blog. Now he brings us a terrific post featuring Woody Allen’s ANNIE HALL (which happens to be one of my favorite films).

It’s one of the reasons I love this film, as well as MANHATTAN and HANNAH AND HER SISTERS.

That’s Nobel-level stuff happening there. And then there’s the lack of sex — unless you’re swingers, of course. You might forgive your date’s annoying dining habits (chewing with their mouth open, gesticulating with a fork) because you’re going to get some hot monkey lovin’ later on. But your double date? The best you can hope for is a double kiss on the cheek, European style. So they’d better be good company. Here are the Top 10 movie couples we wouldn’t mind double-dating with. (Though we can’t promise that our other halves would necessarily agree.)
