Scoop (2006) WS R1 Retail DVD
Comedy, Fantasy, Mystery
"Orson Welles once said that a great artist does his best work in his 20s and his 70s. He didn't get a chance to prove it, but Woody Allen, who turned 70 in December, has released two films since reaching that milestone, and so far, he's two for two. For some, "Scoop" will be a comedown after "Match Point," which was meticulous in all its particulars, something "Scoop" decidedly is not. But "Scoop" has something "Match Point" didn't, something that none of Allen's films have had to quite this degree in 10 years. It's really, really funny" Mark Lasalle
Scarlett Johannsen and Woodymore… Allen team up in this comedy/mystery and they have chemistry. Woody Allan plays a magic performer from Brooklyn known as the Great Slandini. Scarllett Johannsen is Sondra, a journalism student from New York. While Sondra is in the audience watching Slandini she is picked as a helper for one of his acts. While in a box being "dematerialized" she is visited by a ghost, Ian McShane- He was on a death boat off to his Heaven, when he learns the name of the Tarot Killer. A former journalist himself, he must get the goods on the killer, and he meets Sondra in the box. Wild, stange, yes, but it fits and it is humourous. The story takes off from there- Sondra and Saldini team up to find the killer, and the story is full of twists and turns and lots of water.
Woody Allen has his turn. One of the best has Allen declare he was born to the Jewish persuasion but later converted to Narcissism.
Woody Allen plays his stereotypes to the hilt. Sondra is a ditzy blonde, who immediately falls for the charm of Hugh Jackman, Peter. Sid, Woody Allen, is an old wind-bag, who talks Brooklynese "from the bottom of my heart" and "with all due respect".
"Allen is a good example of how success is defined in the art world: Do something surprising and zeitgeist-y early in your career, then rip yourself off forever. (Allen, who has been around for a very long time, has reached the point where he's also allowed to rip off others.) Whatever fresh cultural nerves his comedy touched 30 years ago have long limped off into the sunset." Carina Chocano
There isn't anything new in this Woody Allen comedy, at least nothing he has not done before. But it works, it is funny and smart and England has been very,very good to Woody. Recommended. prisrob 1-27-07
