The film is essentially a piece of nostalgia, but it swings along with an insouciance we haven't had from him in a long time.

Scoop is lesser Woody Allen, not as good as Manhattan Murder Mystery but fun, with some amusing bits about England, death, magic and journalism.

It's funny enough to keep you from cringing, but not nearly as good as Match Point. Of course, Match Point wasn't trying to be funny either. So proceed with caution.

Scoop is classic Allen -- light comedy with a murder mystery plot, supernatural themes and enough jokes about sex, death, psychoanalysis and philosophy to keep fans happy.

An affable (if forgettable) Woody Allen comedy...

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.

A silly but satisfying little comedy.

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