  • For all its meditations on romantic disappointments, this is a slight, sunny film. Anyone in need of some superior escapism should see it straightaway.

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

  • No doubt about it, Allen's latest throwaway rom-com is utterly silly, forgettable and predictable. It's also his most purely entertaining film in years.

    Feb 6, 2009 | Rating: 3/5
  • The script is witty and playful, the casting just right.

  • Woody Allen's spoof of the Don Juan myth Vicky Christina Barcelona is his best film this century.

  • It's determinedly silly, and possibly wishful-thinking, in essence. After what we've seen from Allen from Match Point onwards, its sheer entertainment value is a minor miracle.

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.
