Their place in the sun: Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in 'Match Point'

When he tries to be the thinking man's Neil Simon, Allen appears mechanical--even in his aptitude for the carpentry of the well-constructed screenplay. But by turning himself into an American Chabrol, he has made strengths out of most of his flaws: exclusively uptown tastes, dramaturgy out of a leather-bound book, an insistence on a single, self-justifying point of view. I pray he will now cling tightly to his worst foible as an artist: his tendency to repeat himself.
