Truly a ride of pure enjoyment to watch...

Perhaps the biggest surprise, though, is Miss Cruz. She has always been a more than serviceable actress, but here she really shines.

This is a slight film, a minor Allen film, a bit of a footnote, but it's warm and engaging and isn't Matchpoint, Scoop or Cassandra's Dream, which has to be a mercy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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
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.
