Film / Everyone Says I Love You

Everyone Says I Love You is a 1996 musical comedy written and directed by Woody Allen and starring a large Ensemble Cast.

Like a lot of Woody Allen movies, the film is set in New York and features Loads and Loads of Characters. This particular film distinguishes itself by having the characters randomly break into song. The musical numbers, and the entire tone of the film are a Shout-Out to the musicals of the 1920s and 1930s.

Characters include:
  • DJ Berlin- The Narrator of the film, daughter of Joe and Steffie
  • Joe Berlin- Father of DJ, ex-husband of Steffie. Also a neurotic, insecure writer.
  • Steffie Dandridge- Mother of DJ, Lane and Laura; ex-wife of Joe, wife of Bob. A philanthropist.
  • Bob Dandridge- Father of Schuyler, Scott, Lane and Laura; husband of Steffie. A lawyer.
  • Scott Dandridge- Bob's son from his first marriage; considered the Black Sheep of the family for his conservative beliefs.
  • Schuyler Dandridge- Bob's daughter from his first marriage. Dating Holden.
  • Lane and Laura Dandridge- Bob and Steffie's daughters. Sometimes creep into Bratty Teenage Daughter territory.
  • Holden Spence- Schuyler's boyfriend/fiance, a lawyer who works for Bob.
  • Von Sidell- A woman whose therapy sessions DJ listens in to (the therapist is the mother of one of Lane and Laura's friends) and decides would be a perfect match for her father.
