The Kid Meets ALVY SINGER - Kid In The Front Row Film Character Dialogues - A Blogathon

A few days back I asked you all to take part in a Kid In The Front Row Blogathon. Here are the details.

The idea? Have an imaginary conversation with the film character of your choice. Well, today, I chose to have a conversation with the Woody Allen creation ALVY SINGER, from the film 'Annie Hall'. Unexpectedly, another character enters the conversation..


KID
Hi Alvy, how's it going?

ALVY
I-I-I'm totally fine, y'know, I just didn't expect to resurface in your imagination.

KID
What have you been up to?

ALVY
Not much. I had all these plans and places to go but then the movie ended.

KID
Annie Hall?

ALVY
Exactly.

KID
Do you still speak to Annie?

ALVY
She won't talk to me. And it's killing me.


ANNIE HALL
This is just like Alvy, he thinks the whole world is against him. He could always text me if he wanted to, he just likes to blame other people.

ALVY
Great, Kid; you say you want to talk to me and now you bring Annie here.

KID
Is that a problem?

ALVY
Well, I, I mean, y'know, jeez, she's my ex-girlfriend. And not only that but, she's fictional.

ANNIE HALL
Here you go again Alvy, calling me fictional, and you wonder why you have trouble with women.

ALVY
Trouble with women? It's the exact opposite, in fact. I can get a date any time I want and, y'know, on occasion, we even make it through dinner.

KID
I can't believe you're still single after all these years.

ALVY
Hey, I'm only in my mid-seventies. When I reach my sexual peak, it'll be perfect.

KID
Are you still writing?

ALVY
I am but, y'know, they think I'm being pretentious because I insist on spelling words correctly.

KID
What do you think of film and television these days?

ANNIE HALL
He hates both, he thinks they're all submental.

ALVY
Jeez, would you let me get a word in? I think television is fascinating, really; the way they line everyone up and the judges pick who goes through, I mean, as a Jew, I can really relate.

KID
Right, yeah. Well it's been nice catching up.

Please join in and do your own versions! Have a chat with any film character, about any topic you want! Have fun with it! I'll be sharing other blogs on the Kid In The Front Row Facebook Fan Page.

Care to share?

  1. Hahahahaha! Way to get into his psyche! The parting shot about the Jews was perfectly on point. :)
