The film stars Reuben Soady, played by Jeff Daniels, who travels to a hunting school in the woods with his father, Albert, brother, Remnar and Jimmy Negamanee. 43-year-old Reuben is charged with the task of shooting a male deer before hunting season ends. If he fails to hunt down the creature, he faces the disapproval of his parents for having been the oldest in his family to not have completed the job. He will also be considered unlucky by those who live in town. Reuben is married to a Native American woman named Wolf Moon Dance, played by Kimberly Norris.

Though Woody Allen doesn't appear in the movie, he is the engaging and often very funny narrator, reminiscing about a time when radio provided almost every aspect of entertainment. The movie stars Mia Farrow and Dianne Wiest as well as many other Woody Allen "regulars." It received two Academy Award nominations, one for best screenplay and one for best art direction. Nostalgic but never bogged down in sentiment, the movie bounces around the different people of Allen's childhood by focusing on what they listened to. Allen as a kid loved the Masked Avenger show. His love sick single aunt was glued to stories of the lives of Hollywood's elite while his older female cousin loved Carmen Miranda songs while she wore hats of fruit she made herself.

This movie is about a food writer in New York who meets a newspaper columnist from Washington at a wedding. They eventually marry and have a very happy marriage. Eventually she discovers that her new husband is having an affair. She leaves him and moves back to New York, but he does eventually convince her to come back. This leads to even more troubles throughout the film. This movie is the first time that Streep and Nicholson worked together, so it is a piece of film history in itself. The soundtrack also features music from Carly Simon.
