Vicky Cristina Barcelona Reviews

What you see is less reflective of old glories and more indicative of a new composure that inflicts a lot of Allen's newest endeavors, in which characters are seen engaging in discussions that test the limits of their deadening comforts.

Unlike the vast majority of summertime comedies, the delights of Vicky Cristina Barcelona won't evaporate any time soon.

I couldn't imagine better company than Vicky, Cristina and Woody on a relaxing summer day.

Allen seems uninterested in pushing his material beyond impersonally generic, or even in thinking things through.
September 29, 2012
It's a shift in tone for Allen; it's still a movie about sex and those who seek it, but it's hung on a sun-blushed, wine-sploshed Spanish love triangle that's more appealing and more amorous than anything the director has produced in decades.

Although Penelope Cruz's performance is amusing, the film feels a bit forced, looking for meaning in Spain where there may not be any.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona is Allen's an ode to unrestrictive love, and a commentary on sex and how it speaks to different people. Yet its charm and beauty is undercut by a stinging cynicism.

August 26, 2009
Not unlike Neil Simon scrambling to be Henry Miller.

Woody, what happened? You stink on toast. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Many are hailing Woody Allen's new film, claiming it to be a "return to form." I agree: he's returned to the earliest form of his career, the monologue.

Allen has definitely made something special with this charming, light and warm romantic comedy.

Interesting characters interact in a complex tangle of interesting relationships.

This time, the words really should be believed: a massive return to form for Woody Allen. No lie. At this rate, we might even forgive him for Cassandra's Dream.
| Original Score: 4/5
February 12, 2009
For all its meditations on romantic disappointments, this is a slight, sunny film. Anyone in need of some superior escapism should see it straightaway.

February 12, 2009
Woody Allen's new film, announced as a romantic comedy, is far superior to the disastrous Match Point and Cassandra's Dream but much inferior to his best work.
February 10, 2009
I want to know how clumsily delivering punch lines in halting English while playing a shrieking harpy is in any way Oscar-worthy.

By the time Cruz appears, Vicky Cristina Barcelona has delivered on those initial good omens: it's Allen's best film in at least a decade.
February 10, 2009
Allen's last couple of movies have been far from vintage offerings but Vicky Cristina Barcelona is pure pleasure and finds him back on form. It is smart, sunny, frisky and extremely funny.

Leave it to Woody Allen to muck up a threesome involving Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz.
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 6, 2009
Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which Allen wrote and directed but did not act in, is Woody at the top of his game.
