I never watched Friends and I can't say that I am a Jennifer Aniston fan per se...

However, I have seen her in a number of light romantic comedy type movies and I think she does a fine job.

One that was not mentioned here was  Rumor Has It

in which she plays the grand daughter of the "real life" character portrayed by Anne Bancroft in the graduate.  I thought this movie was "tons of fun"


**SPOILER ALERT**
Kevin Costner plays the "real life" character portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in the Graduate and proceeds to sleep with the 3rd generation as well.

Not great, but a good actor. As cute as they come, imo. Eye of the beholder and all that.

I liked Rumor Has It. I thought casting Shirley MacLaine as the grandma was pretty cool. I had a crush on her when I was a kid.  Roll Eyes

Jenifer Aniston is very funny in "Friends," just with her cuteness and comic timing, that said, "Friends" sucks.  I've always liked her in smaller roles like in "Office Space" and she does fine in the indy one, too.  Why she is unable to make that step into "Speed" or THE ASHLEY JUDD MOVIE or be the romantic comedy easy return on dough like Kate Hudson [though evidently she has a bankability index], I don't know, my best guess is that when you already have $50M, it's hard not to play safe and not play often, but she will eventually start a production company or something when she gets tired of being in the J. Aniston business.

- She was in "Derailed", right?  Didn't you see that one a few times? 

- Did I?  Oh yeah, right, the ticket stubs.  Yeah, it was pretty good.

I guess it is in the eye of the beholder, I'm just surprised so many people have fallen for her.  She seems to have rather limited abilities, and doesn't look any cuter than a 1000 other starlets out there. Now, Naomi Watts is another story.

"Hey man, what's up with that "Chronicles of Narnia" and "Derailed" ticket stub collage, is it like, modern art?"

"Oh that, no, my sister bought it at a charity auction, I'm holding it for her until she finds a new mountain, I mean apartment, to rent..."

"Yeah, but you're holding it on you're mantle with a photo of, wait, it that some kind of sick 'Brokeback Mountain' shrine..." [turns to shrine]

[Produces pistol with silencer.....]

"No, I uh..."

"Oh, she must have a huge crush on Keith Ledger, and what's his head, Jack Gyllengrall..."

"Yeah, she's kind of a weirdo, she has a subscription to 'People' and all that..."

"No, you said that, you said that you were like a dentist's office for you're sister's old celebrity magazines..."

[...puts pistol away...]

I don't hang around starlets so I'll have to take your word on that, but I do agree that Naomi Watts is not only very attractive but has indeed displayed more depth and range than Ms. Aniston.

I haven't hung around very many myself, ponderosa, but judging by how so many are in the news, I feel like I have.  When Naomi Watts held her own against a 10,000 lb. gorilla she had me sold,

She definitely showed a lot of range within the framework of King Kong, going from the dramatic to whimsical and comic and back to the dramatic. I first noticed her in 21 Grams where she more than held her own with the two heavyweights Penn and Del Toro.

Agree that Naomi has more Watt-age than most of the current female stars.  She was fine in 21 Grams, The Ring, Mulholland Dr., and The Painted Veil, to name a few.  Still trying to forget I Heart Huckabees, as is she, I'm sure.

Re Harrie's assessment of Hanks...

"He's no Oskar Werner, which may not be a bad thing, but I have a tough time picturing Kip Wilson in a futuristic society."

He's no Oskar Werner, but he is an Oscar Winner.

Two nasty puns in one post.  It must be Friday!

I guess I've grown used to Hanks.  He no longer bothers me, but I still can't figure out how he managed to win two Oscars.

He had some help from his friend, Wilson.
