Vicky Cristina Barcelona: 7 out of 10.
There was a time when I could bank on Woody Allen for one smart comedy a year. You could set your watch by his consistency. These days, he's hit and miss, but Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a hit.
It's light and easy. It's easy and easy on the eyes. Not only is it set in lovely Spain, but there are three actresses providing both eye candy and solid acting chops. They are Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson and Penélope Cruz.
For the ladies, Javier Bardem's character is far too cool for school. No wonder he scored with all three aforementioned beauts.
