      Bilge Ebiri New York Magazine/Vulture A surprising little charmer, overcoming the rough edges of its low-budget origins with sharp writing and a genuinely sweet sensibility. May 8, 2007 Full Review Matt Zoller Seitz New York Times The Annie Hall homage Burning Annie is a thoroughly professional comedy, well paced, attractively photographed and smartly acted. Feb 7, 2007 Full Review V.A. Musetto New York Post Burning Annie has funny moments, but it suffers from an overflow of characters. Rated: 2/4 Feb 7, 2007 Full Review Bill Arceneaux Film Threat Burning Annie very much is a dissection and reworking of the arcs and lessons of Annie Hall, clever and introspective. Rated: 4/5 Jul 11, 2017 Full Review Maitland McDonagh TV Guide For all the shallowly witty banter, Max and company are even less interesting than Annie and Alvy. Rated: 1.5/5 Feb 6, 2007 Full Review Steve Rhodes Internet Reviews The movie has its moments of comedic brilliance -- just not quite enough of them. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 11, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member This movie has an absorbing story, very likeable characters and actors who are engaging. Definitely a must see for those who remember being young...or who are?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member If you're gonna reference <i>Annie Hall</i> throughout your movie, or even worse, claim that your main love interest is "the modern incarnation of Annie Hall" in your badly-written Netflix DVD sleeve synopsis, you better go balls-to-the-wall with that homage. I want a nightclub-singing, lobster-flinging, tennis racket-swinging ditz who wears ties and vests, dammit!!! I would rather think you copied <i>Annie Hall</i> than you co-opted a few of its philosophies because you think (erroneously) that they define you as a human being. The filmmakers seemed to have good intentions. They're young and fresh-faced and pretty decent actors for the most part. The script isn't even that bad, if they had just taken out the ham-handed attempt at Woody Allen worship. There are some funny, neurotic quips that fit into a nice, college rom-dramedy, but - and this may be ageist of me - these characters are too young/immature/inexperienced to "get" <i>Annie Hall</i>. I also couldn't get past the fact that the lead male looks just like Nick Jonas. And the Virginia Tech windshield decal. Weird. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This one is a weak indie film. The acting is not stellar, but the romance between the lead characters is cute. It isn't the greatest or the worst that I have seen though I won't be recommending it to anyone. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Burning Annie is a boring, tasteless "comedy" that you should avoid. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Quirky comedy and a little bit sad but sill worth seeing if you're into that. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This wasn't really all that good. I didn't HATE it but I didn't really like it that much. I like that part of it was real but the acting was bad. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
