Trivia

Actor-writer-director Woody Allen has said of the public reaction to this movie: "Nobody came to see A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982). One of the critics who likes my work very much said that it was the only trivial picture that I ever made. Richard Schickel from Time Magazine. But I wanted it to be light. I just wanted it to be a small intermezzo with a few laughs. I don't say this was any great picture at all, but in general this atmosphere is something that nobody cares about here in the United States. For me it was fine. I had a great time doing it. I wanted to do for the country what I'd done for New York in Manhattan (1979). I wanted to show it in all its beauty . . . I thought it was good when I wrote it, and I thought it was good when I made it. But it was not appreciated at all. This one and September (1987) are my two biggest financial disasters".

Can Ben Barnes Fix Thanos?

Ben Barnes' character in "The Punisher" sees a therapist, so obviously he's perfectly qualified to give his fellow villains Magneto, Mystique, and Thanos some much-needed therapy.
