"Vicky Cristina Barcelona trips along winningly, carried by the beauty of its locations and stars - and all the gauzy romanticism those enchanted places and people imply."—Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"The actors are attractive, the city is magnificent, the love scenes don’t get all sweaty, and everybody finishes the summer a little wiser and with a lifetime of memories. What more could you ask?"—Roger Ebert
