The Curse of the Jade Scorpion

Last night, we also watched Woody Allen's The Curse of the Jade Scorpion. This comedy set in 1940's New York was well made and entertaining. I enjoyed the villain using hypnosis to get people to steal for him.

I also liked the dialogue. It was crisp and funny while coming across as very appropriate for the time. My one quibble with this movie is the point my mother always mentions when talking about Allen's movies. It is a little hard to believe that so many attractive women would have much of an interest in someone like him. I guess that is the advantage he has of getting to write these parts for himself.

I am not a huge fan of the detective story so this also was a slight drawback.

I doubt this movie would surprise or blow anybody away, but it was pleasant to watch. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 69.
