The Girl Next Door. Well, this is a better role for Elisha Cuthbert than as Jack Bauer's ever-endangered daughter in the tv show, 24. She has some substance to play. The movie itself is reminiscent of Tom Cruise's Risky Business, but without Tom Cruise. I liked it, but that doesn't mean it's good in this case.
13 going on 30. Not as good as Big with Tom Hanks. Well, there's no Tom Hanks in it. But Jennifer Garner's pretty good. You know, she makes a wish, poof, from 13 to 30 instantly. But whereas in Big Hanks was grown-up in real time, in this case 17 years have actually passed. Gives it a somewhat different moral import. It's about realizing that you have betrayed your youthful ideals, and realizing you need to return to them. I am not recommending this movie, but I did like it.
These are both silly movies that touch on serious moral themes, oddly enough.
