Synopsis

Jerry Falk (Jason Biggs), a struggling comedy writer in New York City, tries to please everybody in this comedy. He won’t fire his inept agent (Danny DeVito) or leave his unfaithful, live-in girlfriend Amanda (Christina Ricci). Jerry has heard the phrase that life is like “anything else,” but he finds that his really is not. Jerry has been married and divorced and, at 21 years of age, his life seems bleak. Then, into his life walks David Dobel (Woody Allen), who honestly assesses Jerry’s poor life decisions. Together they embark on a more purposeful strategy of living. Being Jews, Jerry and Dobel have a camaraderie that develops into a mentoring friendship. “Anything Else” is a picture of what life is like to those who have good intentions but nothing solid on which to rely.

Dove Review

The message of the film, “you can only depend upon yourself,” finds frequent expression. Due to an atheistic world view, several sexual encounters, crude humor, and bad language and profanity, Dove cannot award “Anything Else” the Dove Seal.
