    While I know Woody Allen has had real life personality flaws, I try to separate his entertainer accomplishments from his personal life much the same way I do for family, friends, or neighbors whose lifestyle or politics I may strongly disagree with. I find the persona he usually portrays so well of a mousy and an overall sad & pathetic loser to be laughable or even hilarious. A good laugh can often uplift us from daily stresses.

    Thank for the first reply on this thread. So negative. This is why you are on my ignore list.

    Ha Ha Hee Hee. I just watched the clip you provided. I have a tear in my eye from laughing so much! I'm a fan. I could care less were he sticks his parts or into to who or what. His movies make me laugh.

    There was a time I did a lot of dating. I can relate to that dialog. "What about Friday?" LOL

    I admit that the man had talent once, and I liked him back in the day, but child molestation is a lttle hard to dismiss as "real life personality flaws".

    Don't watch Woody Allen films.

    Don't listen to Michael Jackson music.

    I have dealt with too many real life child sex abuse victims to be able to stomach either one of them.

    YMMV.

    Don’t know anything about the OP and his preferences...

    However, I always thought that most people who say they like Woody Allen’s stuff say that because some self-important, nose-in-the-air media critic told them they had to be sophisticated to appreciate Mr. Allen. And even more so to accept his....predilections.

    Might be true and I’m just not sophisticated enough.

    You asked a question on an open forum. Why get grumpy if the answers do not match your expectations?

    FTR I found Woody Allen annoying before the world found out he was a perv.

    That was funny. I don't know anything about his "child sex abuse". I think I may have only seen one movie in which he acted.

    I like his older stuff. Later stuff not as much. Fair actor. Brilliant writer and director.

    He is a creep.

    Two separate issues.

    The way I remember it was that his wife was adopting so many kids that it became likely she adopted one he was having sex with.
