This keepsake of Woody Allen’s musical Everyone Says I Love You might sound better in the shower. It’s full of non-singing actors awkwardly bursting into peppy tunes from old musicals. That cringe factor, of course, was the idea: Allen felt that untrained pipes would sound more expressive. But once you get an earful of Julia Roberts wobbling her way through ”All My Life,” or Allen mewing ”I’m Thru With Love,” the experiment seems ludicrous. It’s all bathed in pleasant, string-heavy arrangements, but these vintage ditties mostly slip down the drain.
