"Scoop" was a fun movie, although Scarlet Johansson's performance as Sondra Pranske/Jade Spence at times felt stagy. Woody Allen's character, Sidney Waterman, felt a little unnecessary to the plot, although Hugh Jackman gave a convincing performance as the suspect and love interest. Altogether it was an enjoyable film.

Weak and contrived

Scoop

“Is this the sight of Woody Allen trying to make one of Alfred Hitchcock’s chic European comedic thrillers? If so, then Allen should promptly return to witty, urbane jokes, or his novelistic comedic-dramas, because trying to make something that combines murder-mystery with romance and ethnic supporting players like The Thin Man isn’t his strongest showing. It isn’t that Scoop is truly terrible, it’s far more mildly amusing and a pleasing time waster between his better works, it’s just that it feels discordant and repetitious.   And it’s never the fault of the game cast, chief among them Scarlett Johansson going all-in on the neurosis and tics and Hugh Jackman using his charm as subterfuge, who delivers their laughs with conviction. It’s just that the material is merely ser” read more
