Cute and fluffy

Anyone who's seen Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music is probably partial to the song "A Weekend in the Country" and will be able to appreciate the obvious inspiration behind Woody Allen's A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy. Woody Allen and his wife Mary Steenburgen host a weekend party in their country home for their friends: Mia Farrow, Jose Ferrar, Tony Roberts, and Julie Hagerty. Sexual tensions abound, and pretty soon everyone winds up in bed with someone they shouldn't!

While I'd categorize this one as more wacky than funny, it's not Woody's worst film. There are some pretty funny moments, especially if you recognize the famous spoof. If you're looking for the depression, moral dilemmas, and discussions about life's great mystery—themes that are usually present in Woody Allen movies—rent Crimes and Misdemeanors or Hannah and Her Sisters. But for something incredibly light and fluffy, watch the preview and see if you might like A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy.

A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy

Occasionally, a film emerges that is a stellar film ruined by a less than stellar title. A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy is a film that may fit into that category. Although not a masterpiece, by any means, A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy is a fine film by writer-director Woody Allen. Released in 1982, A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy involves an inventor who hosts a weekend gathering of friends that quickly turns into professions of love altering the lives of everyone involved. Woody Allen plays the role of the idiosyncratic inventor who is experiencing a lack of love and sexual attention from his wife. They invite two couples to spend the weekend with them in their cottage. Maxwell (Tony Roberts) a physician and Andrew's (Woody Allen) best friend who has brought with him a new muse, a nurse that works in his office make up one couple. The other couple that attends is the cousin of Andrew's wife, Adrian (Mary Steenburgen) Leopold (José Ferrer). Leopold is a philosophy professor who has always spoken negatively of marriage before meeting his fiancé. Unbeknownst to Andrew, Leopold's fiancé turns out to be Ariel (Mia Farrow), his former girlfriend. The spark is reignited between Ariel and Andrew, but a new flame emerges between Ariel and Maxwell, also. A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy has not been one of my favorite discoveries through this Woody Allen project I've been working through. There were some signature Woody Allen aspects that kept me happy enough, however. The music in this film was as divine as the music always is in every Woody Allen film. The film was opened with a discussion on metaphysical philosophy which will always be something this philosophy minor will be all-in for. The film was also shot beautifully with gorgeous images of landscape, animals, and geography gracing the screen. All-in-all, there is enough in A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy to tide over the loyal Allen-ist but certainly not the feast some of his other work is.

For me, the best of Woody Allen's films.

This movie makes me happy. The humor seems not at all forced as I feel it sometimes is in Woody Allen movies. The battles of all the participants is fun to watch. It is set in the time of early Freud, and everyone displays their inner turmoils in various and entertaining ways.

I have read several of viewer's reviews and I would recommend reading them. I will not do a synopsis nor a paraphrased review.

I just watched this film's ending again and the slowly rising, bubbling "firefly" joyful ending is one that sends me from the viewing room out into real life with a renewed interest in things (aka "Stuff").

Movies are cool.
