The initial novelty of seeing and hearing Johansson put on an Allen avatar geek persona in her first scene can't carry the film.

Después de Match Point (su mejor película de los últimos años), Woody Allen regresa a un cine menor, olvidable, sin mayores pretenciones que divertir durante un rato.

Sempre há a possibilidade de que o próximo trabalho de Woody Allen seja um Match Point, um Desconstruindo Harry ou um Todos Dizem Eu Te Amo. O problema é que também há boas chances de que seja um novo Scoop.

Alarmingly, some of Woody Allen's highly strung performance enhancing gestures rub off on Scarlett Johansson in this bizarre misfire from Allen, who hasn't even noticed that his plot doesn't hold water.

Everything is a dreadful bore, a woeful misstep, or both.

What was surprising, however, was how sloppily it had been put together and how many holes there were in the story.

Nestled as it is amid the clamor of the late-summer blockbusters, it's the kind of small pleasure that can make you feel intensely grateful.

A ramshackle and laboriously whimsical comedic trifle that falls back on Woody Allen's increasingly tired penchant for nattering faux-realism.

Visiting London, American journalism student Sondra Pransky (Scarlett Johansson) gets the scoop on possible serial killer Peter Lyman (Hugh Jackman). Volunteering as the subject for second-rate magician Sid Waterman (Woody Allen), Sondra comes face to fac

Woody Allen's London-set comedy caper doesn't break any new ground, but he and Match Point muse Scarlett Johansson are good for some odd-couple laughs.

Looks like writer/director Woody Allen is back to his old tricks again, with yet another mediocre comedic offering after he surprised everyone with a solid comeback.

Occasionally Allen hits the right notes, but his comedies have become increasingly erratic in recent years and 'Scoop' is no exception: It strains to charm.

It fails to evoke one laugh over the course of 90 minutes, revealing Woody Allen's sense of humor to be not merely ailing, but dead -- completely, utterly, forever dead.

Funnier, less offensive, and certainly better company than 'Harry or 'Aphrodite but Scoop still suffers from an overabundance of tired borscht-belt humor.
