Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The script is witty and playful, the casting just right."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"When great artists maintain their health and energy into their 70s, amazing things can happen -- and they're happening with Woody Allen."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"It's a shift in tone for Allen; it's still a movie about sex and those who seek it, but it's hung on a sun-blushed, wine-sploshed Spanish love triangle that's more appealing and more amorous than anything the director has produced in decades."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Not unlike Neil Simon scrambling to be Henry Miller."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Allen has definitely made something special with this charming, light and warm romantic comedy."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"The film belongs to Bardem and Cruz."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Vicky Cristina Barcelona is fitfully good."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Although Penelope Cruz's performance is amusing, the film feels a bit forced, looking for meaning in Spain where there may not be any."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Woody, what happened? You stink on toast. Paul Chambers, CNN."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"Interesting characters interact in a complex tangle of interesting relationships."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"There is nothing wrong with Allen's determination to mix humor and drama, it's simply too bad he's not getting better at it."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Allen seems uninterested in pushing his material beyond impersonally generic, or even in thinking things through."
‑ Jonathan Romney, Film Comment Magazine
"Vicky Cristina Barcelona is Allen's an ode to unrestrictive love, and a commentary on sex and how it speaks to different people. Yet its charm and beauty is undercut by a stinging cynicism."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Many are hailing Woody Allen's new film, claiming it to be a "return to form." I agree: he's returned to the earliest form of his career, the monologue."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"This time, the words really should be believed: a massive return to form for Woody Allen. No lie. At this rate, we might even forgive him for Cassandra's Dream."
‑ Charles Gant, Heat Magazine
