Take the Money and Run

Director: Woody Allen
Year Released: 1969
Rating: 3.5

Early Allen picture is about the World's Most Incompetent Criminal (played by Woody) and his various forays into 'trying' to break the law. Mock documentary approach works - as it would later, with Zelig and (technically) Husbands & Wives - and the voice-over narration gets a good deal of laughs (not to mention Allen's physical - as opposed to cerebral - humor). Anybody that considers himself/herself a fan of comedy ought to look for it, as it is one of his best films.
