Scoop is a great little film. It's pleasantly funny, and interesting from beginning to end. There's just a little seasoning of the supernatural, and much of Woody Allen's newly ripened sardonic humor and bittersweet comedy and tragedy. Woody needs more variety in his acting style, but his jokes are aging nicely along with their targets. Scarlett Johansson delivers another terrific performance. I enjoyed myself thoroughly at this little film, and that is a strong recommendation!
