I have to say, I'm really liking New Girl. That's more a testament to the sad state of network television than it is to the show, but really, it's got something going for it. It's a low-stakes, low-key comedy, with enough good acting to carry the sometimes-weak material. This guy and that guy are particularly talented. The woman in the picture above, I fear, is not pulling her weight.
Have dinner with the parents of a toddler, and children’s movies tend to appear on the television. If you’re lucky, you’ll end up watching Elf, an inoffensive entertainment whose Broadway analogue I have recently written about elsewhere. In between Will Ferrell shenanigans, you may notice something adorable. Something snarky. Something cute, with a bit of a fuck-you edge. Its name is Zooey Deschanel, Actor—and it is something we don’t see much of any more.
Read the rest at Bullett.
I know that Zooey reads this blog, and I hope her feelings aren't hurt by this. Consider it constructive criticism. She's a talented actress, and it makes me sad that she isn't being given the chance to showcase it.
