Even though everybody and every scene was beautiful, I found Vicky Christina Barcelona barely watchable.
It is about two beautiful young women in Barcelona for the summer trying to figure out what they want in life, or rather, what they want in love.
I could have dealt with it a lot more if the actress who played Vicky (I can't remember her name) wasn't so bland and robotic and pretentious. I really hated her performance. Scarlett Johansen was almost too beautiful. It was just distracting. Then, also as always very beautiful but somehow less distractingly so was Penelope Cruz who gave a great performance and I was very happy to see her win at the Oscars. She was the spark of life in the film.
Also, I didn't find it funny. I don't think I laughed once.
When it comes down to it, even though he's done some movies that I loved (Crimes and Misdemeanors, Match Point, Zelig), I'm honestly not that crazy about Woody Allen. His sensibility grates on my nerves.
