Harry Block is a well-regarded novelist whose tendency to thinly-veil his own experiences in his work, as well as his un-apologetic attitude and his proclivity for pills and whores, has left him with three ex-wives that hate him. As he is about to be honored for his writing by the college that expelled him, he faces writer's block and the impending marriage of his latest flame to a writer friend. As scenes from his stories and novels pass and interact with him, Harry faces the people whose lives he has affected - wives, lovers, his son, his sister.


Woody at his worst. Film critics had a field day with "Deconstructing Harry", a star studded mess of a movie with Allen casting himself in the title role as the usual neurotic, obsessive, slef-absorbed,loquacious, ruminating New York Jew type, with the verdict eminently negative. There's little I can add to the background noise. Suffice it to say that "DC" comes off like vomit, a mess made up of pieces of what was once palatable. A regurgitation of Allen's better work as a numbing, unfunny, and seemingly endless drone of dialogue, "DC" is recommended for diehard Allen fans only.
