Kenneth Turan 'Whatever' works for fans
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Adam Nayman Not only is Whatever Works worse than Anything Else, the previous low-water mark in the increasingly swampy filmography of Woody Allen, it may actually be worse than anything else, period.
Peter Travers Whatever Works feels like something out of time and, worse, out of step.
C. Fuchs Fitfully amusing, but uneven and without enough deep humor to pave over the misanthropy, elitism, religion bashing and the fairly creepy and clearly never once believable May-December romance pairing, the film tries to operate via its titular philosophy, but it's unlikely Whatever Works will work for everyone.
Tomatometer Based upon a script written in the 1970s, Woody Allen's Whatever Works suffers from a lack of fresh ideas.
