|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Three-part anthology film: Scorsese's is an obvious, heavy-handed tale of a macho artist (Nolte) and his assistant/ lover (Arquette) who wants to fly the coop. Coppola's is a cute but pointless variation on the old children's book Eloise about a little rich girl who lives in a N. Y. C. hotel while her parents globetrot. Finally, we get to the good stuff with Allen's comedy segment, in which a man is literally haunted by his nagging mother; Woody is in great form on-camera as the hapless victim, and Questel is a howl as his mom. All told, a waste of time until the concluding sequence.
