The Reg at Woody Allen's Latest

Regis Philbin getting into his car tonight on 3rd Avenue and 60th Street after a private screening of the new Woody Allen movie "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

The movie is about two young American women, Vicky and Cristina (played by Rebecca Hall and Scarlett Johansson) who are spending the summer in Barcelona. Vicky is sensible and engaged to be married; while Cristina is emotionally and sexually adventurous. They’re drawn into a series of complicated romantic and sexual entanglements with Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem), a charismatic painter, who is still very much involved with his impassioned ex-wife Maria Elena (Penélope Cruz). Yes, there is a lengthy lesbian kiss between Johansson and Cruz. Highly recommended.

Not said by Regis, but overheard while leaving the theater: "I would definitely go see that again."

UPDATE: Another review from a blogger at the exact same screening.
