Scoop

This was a really good movie. It was a lot of fun, and apparently Woody Allen has returned to form. I love Hugh Jackman in everything he does. However, in this he was kinda generic. This role didn't need his expertise. It wasn't really juicy enough to warrant his supreme skills. And while I love Hugh Jackman, I don't think he was quite right for this role. Scarlett Johanssen, however, was perfect. She was slightly geeky, but beautiful. Woody Allen was great, bumbling, and slightly cowardly. Ian McShane is hysterical and completely believable as a dead reporter "jumping ship" (you'll understand what I mean within 10 minutes).

All-in-all a very good film. Not fantastic, but definitely good.
