I enjoyed it, however, not appropriate for high school audience. The other problem, what if you don't have Woody Allen, or even a good impersonator in the cast. The humor depends on familiarity with him as a writer, director, and actor. Still, the script and concept are clever. I am certainly keeping my eye open for an opportunity to cast Woody as himself, or find an adequate impersonator. :)
