Duration: 1 Hour 40 Minutes

(2008) Best friends vacationing in Spain -- one nonchalantly uninhibited (Scarlett Johansson), the other respectably pragmatic (Rebecca Hall) -- accept a charming artist’s (Javier Bardem) invitation for a cozy weekend in a resort town, leading to triangular complications, eventually muddied further by the arrival of the artist’s volatile ex-wife (Penelope Cruz), and the formation of a temporary “menage a trois.” Though this diverting romantic comedy is almost fablelike in presentation (and therefore not to be taken literally), the cast and locale engaging, overt sexual elements minimal, and the characters’ actions not entirely devoid of moral weight, the premise of writer-director Woody Allen’s film may still prove problematic. An implied sexual threesome, a casual view of non-marital sex and two brief nongraphic encounters, an implied extramarital dalliance, a nihilistic worldview, a few crude words and profanities, brief gun violence. (L -- limited adult audience) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) Showtime (cable)
