Jerry Falk learns a lesson the hard way when he falls head over heels in love with a beautiful but flighty girl, Amanda.
The joke that Woody Allen tells about the prize fighter in the boxing ring was also used in his earlier film Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989).
You know, there's great wisdom in jokes, Falk, really. There's an old joke about a prizefighter who's in the ring, and he's getting killed, he's getting his brains beat out; and his mother's in the audience, and she's watching him getting beaten up ...
When Falk types on his laptop computer, the number of (enlarged) typed lines alternates between five in close-up to just three at a distance.
