The big scoop on Scoop is that there really isn't one.
August 5, 2015
Last year's Match Point marked a surprising return to vital filmmaking form for Woody Allen, but that movie had the distinct advantage of not being a comedy.

A genteel burp of a comedy
April 29, 2009
Probably one of the most annoying Woody Allen movies I've ever seen.
September 1, 2007
Woody Allen reprises his Alvy Singer shtick in a pastiche of 50s screwball that is deeply unfunny.
August 26, 2007
The initial novelty of seeing and hearing Johansson put on an Allen avatar geek persona in her first scene can't carry the film.
May 9, 2007
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.
March 13, 2007
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.
March 1, 2007
The plot fizzles even as the jokes sizzle.
November 30, 2006
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.

The act just isn't cute anymore. In truth, it hasn't been for at least a couple of decades. So why is it that Woody Allen continues to insist on playing "Woody Allen?"
September 18, 2006
A ramshackle and laboriously whimsical comedic trifle that falls back on Woody Allen's increasingly tired penchant for nattering faux-realism.
August 25, 2006
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.
August 22, 2006
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.
August 19, 2006
... more silly than funny.
August 18, 2006
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.
August 9, 2006
Woody -- enough with the one-liners.
