Woody Allen's lightheated comedy with Scarlett Johansson.Reviewer: Lucas Everidge September 28, 2010
Hot off the heels from his successful film Match Point a year earlier, Allen returns to lighthearted comedy. Filming once again in London and casting Scarlett Johansson as the female lead, Allen continues his "London trilogy" of movies. For Scoop, Allen invokes his penchant for comic murder mysteries, which he first began years ago with Dianne Keaton in Mathattan Murder Mystery.
Johansson plays an American college student who stumbles upon the scoop of a lifetime when a ghost informs her the identity of London's latest serial killer, who also happens to be one of England's most dashing, well known businessman bachelors (Hugh Jackman). Allen appears in the film himself playing a corny magician, who enables Johansson throughout the lighthearted film to stay on track and not fall in love with the dashing killer.
The film's soundtrack is an excellent compilation of Tchaikovsky ballet music, as well as Khachaturyan's Sabre Dance, and more.
