|saw The Good Girl last night. cant say that i would recommend it outright but i thought it was well acted. it was written by the guy that wrote Chuck and Buck and possesses a similarly droll and dire perspective. and while i enjoyed the farcical elements, the story itself seemed a little unoriginal and despite the fine acting you never really cared about the fate of the characters. but then i wasnt concerned with much by the end of the night as the champagne hangover began to wreak havoc on my brain. in general i would say i would have been better off with total sobriety or further inebriation, and maybe thats true of the movie as well. heres a salon review that seems about right.
i'd not normally see a movie with j anniston, but since jake gyllenhaal is also in it, it becomes a must see (though i may still wait for video). if any of you are unfamiliar with this young jake, please see donnie darko. pay no mind to the video box, just rent it and watch it, you'll like it. also he was in lovely and amazing, which was neither, but still enjoyable.
