Penelope's performance is a little sterotypoical, but fantastic...

. . .while Vicky Cristina Barcelona isn't entirely a return to form, it is interesting enough to stick in one's brain.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona is everything it tries, halfheartedly, to criticize about the character of Vicky: It's determined to be ordinary and likeable no matter what the emotional cost.
March 13, 2017
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.
October 21, 2014
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.

August 15, 2011
Although Penelope Cruz's performance is amusing, the film feels a bit forced, looking for meaning in Spain where there may not be any.

July 7, 2010
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.
July 22, 2009
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.

March 25, 2009
Allen has definitely made something special with this charming, light and warm romantic comedy.

Interesting characters interact in a complex tangle of interesting relationships.

February 12, 2009
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.
