July 30, 2006 - Woody Allen wrote and directed this 2006 comedy set in London. Allen also stars along with Scarlett Johansson, Hugh Jackman and Ian McShane.

Johansson plays Sondra Pransky, an American journalism student in London to interview a famous director for her school newspaper. She misses out on that interview, but gets the potential scoop of a lifetime thanks to the ghost of renowned journalist Joe Strombel (McShane).

The ghost of Strombel appears to Sondra while she's in a Chinese box taking part in a magic show put on by Splendini (Allen). Strombel tells Sondra that Peter Lyman, a wealthy businessman and son of a British Lord may, in fact, be the infamous Tarot Card Killer.

Sondra and Splendini pretend to be daughter and father so they can get close to Lyman (Jackman) and suss out the truth - and get the scoop.

Overall review: *** On the predictable side, but witty and well-paced. Kept me laughing from start to finish.
