Critic Reviews for Vicky Cristina Barcelona

All Critics (207) | Top Critics (46)

Slight, disposable but entertaining. Vicky Cristina Barcelona is an awful lot better than anything in his thankfully short "British" period.

The script is witty and playful, the casting just right.

Time Out
Top Critic

The humour is more situational, less assertive, less reliant on wisecracks and obvious punchlines.

The film belongs to Bardem and Cruz.

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

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

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.

My favorite of the late period Allen films.

Even if it's one of the best of his latter pictures, it's still a run of the mill Woody Allen whose only reasons for standing out are the talented cast and the amazing sights of Barcelona. The liberated love story does generate some sparks, and Penelope Cruz comes as a force of nature that can run circles around Scarlett Johansson.
