Two Line Reviews - #318

Movie: The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001)

Plot: Two investing agents at an insurance co. who are at loggerheads are hypnotised by a magician and are brought under the curse of his jade scorpion. Through them he tries to win a lot of jewels; The duo , who get chased by police, finally come together to solve the case and nab the magician.

  • Another interesting Woody Allen film rated poorly! The intrigue, the sarcasm, the humour - they are all there in the right proportion in this film too.
  • Woody as the serious yet funny agent rivels in his role and his cat-fights with Helen Hunt are all the more engaging!
  • The screenplay though predictable and flat is enjoyable nevertheless.
Engaging and funny!
