Scoop

Released 2006 Rating 13 in UK
Director Woody Allen Writer/s Woody Allen
Starring Woody Allen, Scarlett Johansson, Hugh Jackman, Ian McShane
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A dead investigative reporter, on the boat across the Styx gets a whiff of a dramatic story, and manages to communicate with an American journalism student who is being disappeared in a magic show. With the magician she follows up the tip amongst the British aristocracy
Content The journalism student is a bit of a slapper, and is often seen in bed with someone, but no actual sex. Lots of Woody Allenisms, as he makes a general hash of the whole investigating business.
A View Typical Woody Allen stuff. After all he always writes the same sort of lines for himself, but it was fun as usual. So it’s just a matter of whether you like his work. Hugh Jackman just a bit weak as a British aristocrat.
