116. Sleeper (B)

Sleeper: Woody Allen's sf comedy demonstrates the co-writer/director/actor's strengths and weaknesses rather well. His attempts at slapstick in the film are hit or miss; some moments are great (the robot repair shop sequence; the constantly failing police rocket launcher), but others fall flat (especially when he's imitating Benny Hill). His dialogue (co-written by Marshall Brickman, who wrote with Allen several times) however, is excellent, and consistently hilarious ("What's it like to be dead for 200 hundred years?"/"It's like spending a weekend in Beverly Hills.").
