A Woody Allen Film
Boris is disillusioned with life, what's the point he thinks. That's why he's jumped out the window in order to end it all, only to be denied the death he wants. Then Melodie shows up on his doorstep, a southern runaway from Mississippi, with no where to go. She seeks shelter with cranky Boris. From there the fun begins, first her mother shows up out of the blue and then her father. New York isn't Mississippi but they soon adjust, finding whatever works from them.
If your looking for a laugh out loud funny film then Whatever Works is surely one to watch. It covers the themes of life, love and death in an intelligent manner. It's another great example of Woody Allen's work.
