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.

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.

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

Jackman slips easily into the ambiguous menace of his Cary Grant role.

The key to enjoying Woody Allen's 37th feature film Scoop is to recognize right away that the premise is completely ridiculous. Do that and you should have a reasonably good time with this lighter-than-air comic confection.

Allen the story-teller, who keeps interrupting the story with lengthy shticks, might have met his demise, but don't let that discourage you from enjoying Scoop.

The kind of movie you just don't see these days -- an intelligently crafted entertainment that pretends to be nothing more.

So, here's the scoop: Though nowhere near as masterful as last year's Match Point or the Allen classic comedies of the '70s and '80s, Scoop is modest, late-summer fun.

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

Scoop has something Match Point didn't, something that none of Allen's films have had to quite this degree in 10 years. It's really, really funny.

The film is a pleasure that doesn't rank with Allen's best but satisfies far more than most American comedies.
