Insert WAY TOO OBVIOUS Woody Allen joke

New York Post says:

February 7, 2008 -- Scarlett Johansson has a steamy lesbian sex scene with Penelope Cruz in Woody Allen's upcoming "Vicky Cristina Barcelona." A source tells us: "It is also extremely erotic. People will be blown away and even shocked. Penelope and Scarlett go at it in a red-tinted photography dark room, and it will leave the audience gasping." The women later have a threesome with Javier Bardem, who plays Cruz's husband.

Like chum in the waters of the blogosphere, this story has given movie bloggers the opportunity to post their favourite pictures of Johansson and Cruz, as well as drool over the idea of two girls kissing each other. What first struck me about this article was that this supposed scene will be both steamy AND also extremely erotic. How could it possibly be both?!?

steam·y : /ˈstimi/ Pronunciation Key - [stee-mee]
–adjective, steam·i·er, steam·i·est.

1. consisting of or resembling steam.
2. full of or abounding in steam; emitting steam.
3. covered with or as if with condensed steam: a steamy bathroom mirror.
4. hot and humid.
5. Informal. passionate or erotic.

Anyways... it's hard for me to be excited about a new Woody Allen project, since the only film of his that I've liked in the last 10 years was MATCH POINT. For the sake of reference, here are pictures of some of the cast.
