This is Louis C.K.'s attempt to make a Woody Allen movie about Woody Allen. Well, to be a bit more precise, it portrays a thinly disguised version of Woody Allen: a prolific elderly filmmaker who is adored by many, but is also obsessed with young women, and accused of molesting a child. The Woody character is played by John Malkovich, which certainly doesn't make the whole portrayal any less creepy.

The dramatic conflict in the film is this. The Louis C.K. character, a TV show creator who worships "Woody" and defends him against unproven accusations of impropriety, changes his tune when "Woody" sets his sights on C.K's own minor daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz).

ILYD is similar in tone to the final season of CK's TV series. I'd call it laughless "cringe comedy," of which I am no big fan. I really like the way CK weaves his own awkwardness and blunt self-deprecation into his stand-up, and I enjoyed some of the early episodes of his series, but I found the later episodes of that TV show appallingly humorless, so off-target that I couldn't even tell if he was still trying to be funny. This movie isn't that ungainly, but that's only because of the presence of Charlie Day, who played his role for obvious ribald laughs. Frankly, Charlie's role is totally unnecessary to the storyline, so it seems to have been added because CK realized he had to sweeten the script with some broader, more relatable humor. That was probably the right decision, because without Charlie's shenanigans, obvious and gauche though they may be, the film could not be called a comedy at all.

Look, this film was never going to be a blockbuster. ILYD is a low-budget and tonally inconsistent B&W film. The most comparable Woody Allen film would probably be Stardust Memories. Given that (admittedly imperfect) comparison, this movie would have had a very small audience, so it was with no great regrets about lost revenue that the distributors pulled it from the schedule upon the recent revelations about CK's own sexual improprieties. I'm guessing that the box office for this film would not even have been enough to cover marketing and distribution, so the distributors probably made more profit by shelving it.

Damn, it's easy to take the moral high ground when there's no financial risk.

If you are wondering whether it is any good as a low-rent, independent, pseudo-Woody film, well, it scores 37% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I guess it's fair to say the flick is one of those which divides critics. The people who hated it found its sexual politics loathsome, but some others considered that a plus, applauding CK's willingness to face difficult subjects head-on. I made it through the entire film and didn't find it a total waste of time. Maybe I was rubbernecking a known train wreck, but I don't think so. It's watchable. On the other hand, I think those in the positive category must be real fans of CK's work, because I am coming up with no good reason to recommend it.
