Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Alarmingly, some of Woody Allen's highly strung performance enhancing gestures rub off on Scarlett Johansson in this bizarre misfire from Allen, who hasn't even noticed that his plot doesn't hold water."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"With "Scoop," his newest 'comedy,' Allen has once again proven that he doesn't give a damn about the audience by recycling familiar and lazy material in his signature self-indulgent style."
‑ Angela Baldassarre,
"What was surprising, however, was how sloppily it had been put together and how many holes there were in the story."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Last year's Match Point marked a surprising return to vital filmmaking form for Woody Allen, but that movie had the distinct advantage of not being a comedy."
‑ Josh Larsen, Sun Publications (Chicago, IL)
"Scoop is reminiscent of several of Woody Allen's films, but in a strange way, it harks back to films that were neither great nor lousy -- and like those films, it is an enjoyable diversion."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"The actual murder mystery often takes a back seat to the comedy and drives to a rather predictable end, but it is the getting there that is all the fun."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
