"'Bringing Up Baby' and 'The Philadelphia Story' are the gold standards," she begins. Then there's Woody Allen's "Annie Hall," which Bushnell puts in its own separate pantheon:
"This is a movie where the lover is not a person, but a place, New York City, in which the relationship is not with another, but with the self. Annie Hall does beautifully what so many romantic comedies can't: It captures love as it really is, as opposed to how we wish it would be. And makes it OK."
