Delightfully, amusing… a crime caper with a delicious twist… Entertaining escapism guaranteed to make you laugh, The Curse Of The Jade Scorpion is an irresistible indulgence. – Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile Woody Allen is C.W. Briggs, the top insurance investigator in 1940’s New York – or so he keeps telling the firm’s new efficiency expert, Betty Ann Fitzgerald (Helen Hunt). To be fair, he does always get his man – and usually more than a few women since he isn’t too discriminating in that area. Betty Ann, though, is not one of them. In fact she and C.W. couldn’t detest one another more. However, one night at a work function, each is hypnotized by a sinister showman who not only makes C.W. and Betty Ann fall in love, he secretly programs them to commit daring crimes – crimes that C.W. must then solve! It’s film noir meets 40’s screwball romance when Woody Allen’s Bogart plays to Helen Hunt’s Rosalind Russell (with Charlize Theron’s Bacall thrown in for sexy good measure) – in the critically acclaimed and classic Woody wit-laden comedy, The Curse Of The Jade Scorpion.
