First, we had “Wonderstruck”, then “Wonder” and now we have “Wonderwheel”. I guess wonder is a favorite film title for 2017. This a Woody Allen low point. You’ll be scratching your head trying to figure out what he was trying to accomplish. It is an old-fashioned melodrama that takes place in Coney Island and deals with a cast of unlikeable characters. Kate Winslet has a son that likes to start fires. She is married to a Jim Belushi who is lout. He is visited by his daughter from another marriage. Kate has an affair with Justin Timberlake-don’t ask. The glorious sweeping camera work and spot on recreation of Coney Island from the 1950’s hardly matters. I would skip this one unless you can’t live with yourself if you miss a Woody Allen film.
