Every time you're ready to count Woody Allen out for good, he comes back and surprises you.

October 18, 2008 | Rating: 3/4

When great artists maintain their health and energy into their 70s, amazing things can happen -- and they're happening with Woody Allen.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona is fitfully good.

October 18, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

There is nothing wrong with Allen's determination to mix humor and drama, it's simply too bad he's not getting better at it.

Audience Reviews for Vicky Cristina Barcelona

It's always fun to figure out which character is the Woody Allen. The cast is all great. Now I just need to find a great couple with a house in Spain who'd like to host me for the summer...

A pleasant surprise, I expected this to be quite the chick flick, instead was a great travel film, with culture, romance, ups and downs and experimental feelings, totally enjoyed it.
