And people say that Tom Cruise's Globe nomination was strange..

J.D. said...

I don't remember this movie.

Andrew L. said...

Hedwig has clearly gotten something done... :\

Terris said...

The movie was "Charlie Wilson's war". Not one of her best, despite the good cast.
I love JR as an actress and hope to see her soon in a great movie!
Duplicity? I didn't even manage to watch it all... every time I fall asleep,...

Julia and Mike Nichols 'progressed' from Closer to this? Egh.

Guy said...

Why? Why must you remind us of this, Nat?

She was superb in Closer... This was worse, unfortunately. But Duplicity was wonderful.

amir_uk said...

Oh yeah, she was superb in Closer. Inclined to think it is her very best, in fact.

closer is by far and away her best work this was fluff and she was too young for it although she was having fun i though esp that last phone call,the gg nom was star f***ing and we expect it.

Ivo said...

There was a time I used to like her... not anymore. She became star-overrated, and her golden globe nomination only proves it

jess said...

Wow, I did not know people thought she was bad in CWW... 'coz she wasn't ? It was not a great part but she had fun and her accent was allright.

Next for her : the rom com "Valentine's Day" and her next shot at awards, the drama "Eat, pray, love" alongside Bardem and Jenkins.

Sandra Oh said...

Ugh, my mom has cook "Spaghettis" and now I won't eat.

Disgusting face, really.

I actually liked "Charlie Wilson's War" a lot. I'm a big fan of spy movies, Hanks, Hoffman, Roberts, Nichols, and especially Aaron Sorkin. Maybe it just had enough of the right components. I thought it was a fun movie, though.

Oh, just thought I'd mention that I saw this with a friend who, as we were walking out of the theater, said, "Glenn Close was really great in that." I think I may have hit him or something.

"Closer"...awful. All the characters extremely unlikeable.

"Duplicity"....awful,made no sense, no chemistry with Clive Owen.

"Charlie Wilson's War"...JR was miscast.

Morgan said...

I thought it was Gael Garcia Bernal in "Bad Education".

NATHANIEL R said...

morgan they do look alike!

Sam said...

I thought that moment of separating her eyelashes with a safety pin was a terrific detail. It's the one detail in that movie that really stands out for me. Well, that and Emily Blunt in a man's shirt and panties.

I like that she looks like a tranny!

NATHANIEL R said...

EMILY in a man's shirt and panties!!!!

sexiest moment ever in a lame movie?
