Vicky Cristina blah, blah, blah...

Okay. So my anaylsis? The soundtrack is great. Go out and buy/download the soundtrack. The movie? It was awful! The Husband was surprisingly more generous than I (which may have been influenced by the Scarlett Johannsen/Penelope Cruz kiss scene), but alas... it really wasn't funny and the damn narrator! Between this and Jesse James... what's with these narrators?? You don't mind a narrator when it's actually one of the characters or if its a person with a voice that's interesting... but this narrator was like someone who would be narrating an instructional video for insurance adjusters. Oy! If Woody Allen had narrated it would have at least been interesting to listen to.

Overall assessment? Lame! And it's hard for me to picture Javier Bardem *without* the bowl haircut from "No Country for Old Men".
