Synopsis

Album Description
Scoop is the new contemporary comedy from writer/director Woody Allen who stars in the film with Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson and Ian McShane. Scoop is the second consecutive picture that the filmmaker has set and shot in London (following Match Point). The soundtrack for Scoop includes several classical tracks hand-picked by Woody Allen. Woody Allen reports that he chose the music based on "his instincts about what would work in the film."Capturing the playful spirit of the film, the soundtrack's lush orchestrations and quick tempo complement the mysterious motif of the story. The soundtrack consists almost entirely of beautiful classical music by Tchaikovsky, Grieg and Johann Strauss -- a unique assemblage for any soundtrack, especially one from a movie not entirely about classical music itself. These timeless melodies from The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Peer Gynt will be recognized with pleasure by every listener.Scoop tells the story of Sondra Pransky (Scarlett Johansson), a student journalist for a college paper visiting friends in London who happens upon the scoop of a lifetime. Along the investigative trail, she finds magic, murder, mystery -- and perhaps love, with British aristocrat Peter Lyman (Hugh Jackman).

The Scoop On This Soundtrack
Jordan Utz | Salem, Massachusetts | 07/29/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This soundtrack is mostly just classical music, and I mean "Classical" music. Having Swan Lake Ballet Suites, this soundtrack is easy to relax to. Having in some tracks, strings and harp, this soundtrack is just classical music. There's nothing really special about this soundtrack, but if you're a big fan of classical music, then this is the soundtrack for you! Gives you a warm feeling as you listen to this.

"Scoop
Scoop has comedy in almost every corner, a plot that seems elaborate but is simple for its viewers. I understand why all who watch it seem to get the giggles. It's an amazing film, but then again most of Woody Allen's films are funny and clever. Scoop mixes the suspense of his earlier movie, Match Point, with the current comedy of Scoop. The reality beats that of Casino Royale by far. Scoop's one-liners and physical comedy make it one of his funnier films. Some reviewers of his previous film, Match Point (such as Stylus Magazine), have given Scoop a bad review because they think it is too similar. This is not true, as Scoop follows quite a different story - for example, the appearance of Ghosts. It inflicts no damage on Allen's career. Now, onto the movie itself.

We start off with the death of the celebrity journalist, Joe Strombel, a reporter who is the foundation of the movie, and is the main cause of its beginning and end. We cut to a scene of Joe Strombel, and a group of people on a mangy boat. When we cut to the boat piloted by Death, it seems Strombel has been there almost an hour, and he has met a secretary. This secretary hands the scoop to Joe Strombel, and Strombel jumps off the boat to return to earth as a ghost. Earlier, Sondra Pransky, a journalist in training, had made off with a Film Director, and had now gone to see a Magician called Splendido (Sid in cast, and Woody Allen in life). She is picked to be put in a disappearing box (the kind that makes you disappear), and through that, she meets the deceased Strombel. Strombel tells her he had a giant scoop on his hands, saying that the mysterious Tarot card killer was Peter Limen, Lord Limen's son. But then Strombel mysteriously disappears, and when Sid, (Splendido) opens the box, Sondra had also disappeared; I believe this was a by-product of Strombel's disappearance. Sondra Pransky then drags Sid out to look at Peter Limen, the person who was supposed by Strombel to be the killer. She pretends to drown, and by then has, at that moment, won over his heart. I shall not spoil any more of the movie, for the sake of the pre-viewers. I give the film of which I have reviewed a great big comedic 9/10. I say, a Jolly Good film."
