  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Jerry Falk (Biggs) is a 21-year-old fledgling comedy writer who's trying to break into the business by writing nightclub routines for comics. His agent Harvey (DeVito) does him no good at all, but Jerry won't dump him as he is Harvey's only client, and he feels committed to the man. On top of that, Jerry has made friends with David Dobel (Allen), a 60-year-old neurotic character working in the same field as Jerry. In love with his girlfriend Amanda (Ricci), she has a serious commitment problem with no intention of getting intimate with him anytime soon. And with her mother Paula (Channing) around, life doesn't look like it's going to get better anytime soon. Can "Anything Else" go wrong for this poor guy
