'Wonder Wheel' review: Woody Allen, enough. Enough.

Set in 1950, which doesn't stop one character from catching the 1933 movie "Flying Down to Rio" at the local bijou, Woody Allen's "Wonder Wheel" is narrated by a budding dramatist working as a Coney Island lifeguard. Justin Timberlake plays our host, who sleeps with a needy, disillusioned clam house waitress, played by Kate Winslet. He's also sneaking around with her stepdaughter (Juno Temple), costumed by Suzy Benzinger like a hard-luck Depression-era chorine. She's on the lam from the mob and five years estranged from her father, the waitress' carousel operator husband (Jim Belushi).
