Our 13-Year-Old: The Catholic Woody Allen?

Our son and his best friend have entered a film contest. The idea is to remake a scene from a movie. They chose to redo a scene from Woody Allen's romantic comedy "Annie Hall," which won the 1978 Academy Award for Best Picture.

The friend's mother dubbed Lucas "the Catholic Woody Allen." What do you think?!(Our son plays Alvy Singer, the film's protagonist. No, our son has never seen Annie Hall, which, in addition to including more cultural and literary references than any other picture to win an Oscar, has a lot of adult themes. But the two did look at the scene between Christopher Walken and Woody Allen.)

Here is the original scene.

Here is how two middle school boys portray it, using his friend's bedroom as the backdrop.
