Melinda and Melinda

Melinda and Melinda (2004)

In Woody Allen's film, two writers see the story of a woman who comes undone at a dinner party in different ways -- one as a comedy, the other as a tragedy. Radha Mitchell stars as Melinda in both versions; in one, her problems hasten the breakup of her pal Laurel's (Chloe Sevigny and Jonny Lee Miller) marriage, while in the other, she throws another couple, Susan and Hobie (Amanda Peet and Will Ferrell), into a hilarious tizzy.
My Two Cents: A Tragedy/Comedy dichotomy that is neither tragic nor comedic.
