Commentary is an American monthly magazine covering politics, international relations, Judaism, and social, cultural, and literary issues.

Popular culture

Commentary has been referred to in several Woody Allen films. In Annie Hall (1977), Allen (as character Alvy Singer) makes a pun by saying that he heard that Dissent and Commentary had merged to form "Dysentery." In Bananas (1971), as an old lady is threatened on a subway car, Allen hides his face by holding up an issue of Commentary. This image is featured at the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn Heights. In Crimes and Misdemeanors, an issue of Commentary lies on a character's bedside table.

In his sitcom Anything But Love, stand-up comedian Richard Lewis was often shown holding or reading a copy of Commentary.
