Critics Consensus: Rehashing old plot lines and characters, Scoop is a tiresome dipper and another disappointing addition to Woody Allen's repertoire.

Nestled as it is amid the clamor of the late-summer blockbusters, it's the kind of small pleasure...

Woody -- enough with the one-liners.

The result is decidedly minor Woody, and unlike Match Point, far from essential.

Scoop. It's a tired, thin, almost laughless reminder of the earlier Allen.

Another comic murder mystery from Woody Allen.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie will probably bore younger teens, since it's paced for the more mature Woody Allen fan. The plot turns on discovering the identity of a serial killer, although it's treated lightly -- if that's possible (it is a comedy...). There's an off-screen murder signaled by a woman's scream. Another near-murder involves a fight on a small boat. And still another death occurs off screen, a car crash signaled by a loud noise. Characters lie, break into locked rooms, and pilfer objects. Characters drink and smoke cigarettes.
