Woody Allen film featuring a comical Greek chorus. Allen plays Lenny, a New York sportswriter who adopts a son with his wife (Helena Bonham Carter). The son grows up to be so smart, Lenny becomes curious to find out who his parents were. When he discovers that she was a single mum, he tracks her down: she turns out to be a porn actress and prostitute, Linda Ash (stage name Judy Cum), played by Mira Sorvino, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Even though Linda is dumb, with the most annoying voice (think "This one time, at band camp" girl from American Pie), Lenny becomes obsessed with her and tries to sort out her life, including trying to match her up with a husband. The heavy augury of the chorus at the beginning turns out not to be fulfilled; there's more of a happy families ending.
Nugget: the jazz chorus steals the show with its absurd choreography and cameo appearances throughout the film, turning up on the main set to coach Allen's character, like Death in the Bill and Ted movies. They call upon Zeus but get his answering machine!
