It's exciting to see someone smartly addressing alternative relationships. Fans of Vicki will love the similar, but much more dangerous, romance written about by a Harvard Grad and real Romanian dancers "Caribbean Dreams: TRUE STORY of an Ivy League Couple who Bought a STRIP CLUB in the Caribbean" www.caribbeanstripclub.com

It is amazing how a pedophile like Woody Allen, who was molesting his stepdaughter while his 2 year old son watched, is allowed such glory. If you say the N word, you are banished. If you are a pervert, you are glorified.

I have read all the reviews but I believe that they have all missed the point that I see in the movie.

Allen shows women and their choices--the movie is a study of that. The two women go to Barcelona to"find themselves" and indeed are met with the choices that they make in relationship with men and all three women are "the 3 faces" of the same woman in a way. The Cruz woman is the one who gives everything and is totally used up by the artist only to be discarded and driven mad--the risk-taker who lives life truly and then faces the downside. The English actress is the woman who wants to play it safe, yet is intelligent enough to know that she is missing out on truly living, and Scarlett Johannsen is the cariacature "Marilyn Monroe" cut up doll who lives life skimming on the surface and is clueless. Unlike most directors Allen has delved into the psyche of women with understanding.

Tell Johansson to drop her top and be done with it! By the time she does it, it won't be worth it.

EH... That's all I can say about this movie. Good acting, but boring... no depth to the characters or the script. It was a packed theater and people were booing after it ended... Don't waste your money
