Scoop

The Woody Allen, Scarlett Johansson, London collaboration continues, from last year’s Match Point, in comedy-farce Scoop.

Sondra (Johansson) is an American journalism student visiting London. While attending the show of hack magician Sid Waterman (Allen), she is plucked as a volunteer from the audience. Whilst in the Sid’s magic box, Sondra is visited by a ghost – the deceased Joe Strombel (Ian McShane). Joe is convinced that handsome aristocrat Peter Lyman (Hugh Jackman) is a serial killer. Considering this the break she’s been waiting for, Sondra enlists Sid to help her catch the killer & get the scoop.

Reviews & comments

One scoop less than an ice cream

Went to this for a laugh as a review sais it was a comedy NOT a couple of nice shots of Hugh's torso but not worth the$30 we paid for the two tickets. Highly un recomended

No more than a beguiling trifle. But in the dog days of summer, it's a perk to wallow in inspired silliness...

Woody Allen reprises his Alvy Singer shtick in a pastiche of 50s screwball that is deeply unfunny...

A return to the light-hearted farce that Allen has often indulged himself with; the half-a-decent-idea movies that he trots out in and around the very good movies...

Scoop is about 50 minutes of plot padded with 40 minutes of Woody being Woody...

Not vintage Woody, but he still has a few belly laughs left in him...

Allen is at his stuttering, irritating, hammy worst as the nervous, bumbling magician who poses as Sondra's dad – surely the creepiest father-figure ever given his romantic history. His hamminess also seems to infect Jackman and Johansson, who start to stutter occasionally. One gets a disturbing feeling that Allen made this film and designed the plot so he could spend time with the luscious Miss Johansson...
