Melinda and Melinda combines romantic comedy and drama in a way that Woody Allen, unique among filmmakers, likes to contrast. It takes place in Manhattan and chronicles a pair of crises. All the usual Allen areas are explained-the fragility of love, marital infidelity, sophisticated romance, the inability to communicate.

As a character in the movie puts it, "He's despondent, he's desperate, he's suicidal. All the comic elements are in place."
