With all due respect

Movie: Scoop. It's been a while since I've seen a Woody Allen movie I enjoyed, so I wanted to be sure to mention this one. It's no Hannah and her Sisters, but it was cute and funny. Sort of the antithesis of Match Point which, though well filmed, grew more disturbing as the film went on, culminating in the killer getting away with his crime. Scoop concerns two bumbling Americans in London, an often ditzy journalism student and a neurotic vaudeville magician, who try to figure out the identity of a serial killer. While there are plenty of plotholes and the movie definitely isn't a staggering work of any form of genius, it is entertaining and fun.
