Curse of the Jade Scorpion

Rated NR

A mascara-covered hypnotist wickedly controls two unknowing subjects with a swaying green insect for his own financial gain in Woody Allen's latest multi-leveled forum for comedic repartee and social commentary. Set in 1940 New York with comic-book props and a Vaudevillian soundtrack, the writer/director/actor remains in familiar territory by portraying a smarmy womanizing megalomaniac who shoots off endless sexist jibes with his nasal stutter while succeeding as the city's top insurance investigator. Bearing the brunt of the many chauvinistic guffaws by the top dick (no pun intended) is a multi-talented efficiency expert played by Helen Hunt. However, once the sparring co-workers fall victim to the curse of the jade scorpion, they each get a powerful sting that will help audience members survive the curse that is Woody Allen.
