Scoop (Allen, 2006)

Ouch! This latest Woody Allen (who is one of the top five American filmmakers of the past thirty years) screams for attention with it’s over the top performances (Scarlet Johansson has ruined another film) and redundant running gags, which make it almost unwatchable on every level. Some of the banter between Johansson and Woody Allen is flat out awful, cringe-worthy in fact, especially late in the film when the inane plot tries to go into Match Point territory but ends up feeling like other Woody shit fests like Curse of the Jade Scropian. Leaves you asking the question, why did this ever happen?
