having only seen one Woody Allen Movie prior to this,(Purple Rose of
Cairo)and years ago,i didn't know what to expect.i was very impressed
with this movie.i liked the directing style and the writing.Allen wrote
directed,and starred in the movie.Scoop is a murder mystery comedy
starring Scarlett Johansson,Hugh Jackman and Allen himself.Johansson
plays Sondra Pransky,an American journalism student(visiting London)
who receives a major scoop about a series of murders in London.Allen
plays Sid Waterman a quirky,nervous,magician, who Sondra meets while
participating in one of his tricks.it is here that Sondra receives the
Scoop.Sondra drags Sid into the mystery and together they look for
clues about the murders.Along the way,they meet Peter Lyman(Hugh
Jackman)son of Lord Lyamn(Julian Glover)who plays a prominent role in
the mystery.Ian McShane has a small but pivotal cameo.at first,Allen is
annoying and grating what with his quirky mannerisms and
all(stuttering,fast talking hyper activity,nervousness)but he quickly
becomes very endearing.Allen is very quick with the wit in this movie
and he's so natural at it.Scarlett Johansson also has some funny lines
and her and Allen work off each other brilliantly.there is no denying
the chemistry between them.the whole movie is very well written,with
sharp,crisp dialogue all through.the method in which Sondra receives
the scoop is ingenious,but i won't reveal it here.the movie is very low
key and subtle but very effective.a strong 4/5

Another Allen film that was generally dismissed by critics, but for me was worth seeing. Certainly it’s hard to argue that this is up there with Allen’s best work, but it still has a lot of funny bits, and Allen and Scarlett Johansson have a great on-screen rapport as a young aspiring journalist and a slightly pathetic aging magician who team up to try and solve a murder case.

The two Americans have to fake their way into the snooty upper-class world of London, to chase the young aristocrat who a ghostly Ian McShane (a great reporter who died, but got a tip crossing the river Styx, and came back to tell someone) has informed them committed a series of murders. Allen is very funny in these scenes as he tries to blend in with the lords and ladies, and Hugh Jackman does an excellent job as the suave, likable ‘is he or isn’t he’ object of their investigations, who, naturally Johannson falls for.

There are weaknesses; some logic problems with the mystery, and a pay-off that’s less than one might hope. But this does a nice job of capturing some of the feel of a witty 1930s comedy. While no masterpiece, if almost anyone else had made this film, it might well have gotten praise as an enjoyable, well made romantic comedy thriller. It just doesn’t quite stand up when compared to the heights Allen is capable of.

Orson Welles and Johnny Carson were good old magicians turned comics, and Orson liked to clown around on the dean Martin Variety show where Woody found his way and stand up performances going way back...the magician turned comic? Here we have Woody and theres a referencet to Stooges whoose comedy centers around women as the comedy of Bob hope another vauedvillian also centered around women and they make the comedy hit a deep note? Woody has his own style here as a hebrew magician and a reporter omantfromBroklyn acting ona trip is in England to solve a crime? At one point in the drama the woody character mumbles "you have stars in your eyes"..and the film is largely about the female character and Woody plays a pROSPERO type father a la Tempest trying to reform her character often detaching herself and reinventing himself in all kinds of guises..not only the magician..the one who really loves her and she romantasizes love..the sleeping beauty fantasy..and theres a scene like this straight out of the film..and she cant believe her love risa criminal..Before all that the film opens with a foreshadowing..what are we in store for..like a prologue in some meataphysical realm..the poisoned and dead..and the tale is a jack the ripper type tale..among the english upper class..and a highlight of the film is the locations the beautiful locations of the English countryside and estates and gardens and flowered reservoirs and waterways where a boating scene at the denouement takes place..the reporter is on the quest for the jack the ripper type character..but she falls under the medieval spell cast by the wealthy lover..the super rich also a mesmerizer and cereal/serial killer?..who knows I wont spoil it but thats the tell woody sets up..woody has us guessing who actually is the killer(s)..Read more ›
