did not feel like the typical woody allen movie.

This is not the worst movie I have ever seen but it certainly is in the top two. None of the characters is either well developed or appealing. It is Woody Allen at his self indulgent crest. Don't waste your money or your time.
The movie revolves around a New York woman who lived the high life but then her husband (Alec Baldwin) was found out as a crook (the wife turns him in because she found out he had affairs) who cheated on his wife. She moves in with her sister in San Francisco and then the story goes downhill from there. The dialogue is contrived and the plot line dithers from one set of nonsense to another. This is billed as a "comedy-drama" but it lacks both.

I went to see Blue Jasmine by myself, as I knew I was going to be emotionally engaged to the max...and, I was. I don't care for Alec Baldwin as an individual, but he is a very good actor...he fit the role of a desperate, wobbly "wanna be" who knew no end to the ways that he could combine lies and love, deluding himself as he destroyed his wife, child and ultimately himself...I felt for Jasmine as she had a created herself built upon a house of cards...Woody Allen could always get inside a character better than most, and he has done it again..

Wow Woody, your truly not getting older, but continue to get better. Cate Blancett was superb. She should win all the awards for this year. Her voice modulation, her eyes and facial expressions were spot-on.
Whoever cast this picture (Woody?) did a stellar job. The whole cast was brilliant.

I thought the film was at the low end of his films: C- at best
The ending: D
The acting: really quite good. I think Cate Blanchett might be Academy Award material for her role
