Vicky and Christina in Borelona
Here's a word I despise using in reviews: boring. But, I seriously can't avoid describing 'Vicky Christina Barcelona' as just that: boring. First, let me say I've never been a Woody Allen fan. I find his movies wooden and boring.
But this movie was the exception, not the rule! Plenty of turns kept my interest. The plot was intriguing. The dialogue was interesting. Then why would I rate this title so low? The ending! Wow, the ending was terrible. Ruined the whole movie, and made the watching of it two hours of stupidity that solved nothing.
The ending made the whole movie useless. In the end, not only are the main characters in worse shape than they started...they now KNOW their lives are meaningless and terrible. Vicky is now in an unhappy marriage. Christina is single again, and knows exactly what she missed.
THIS is why I dislike Woody Allen movies. Because they aren't happy unless you feel terrible at the end.
Rating: Just 2 (and that’s only for Cruz performance)
