Jennifer Garner Didn't Consider Beauty Important During Her Younger Years


Jennifer Garner

Although it may be hard to believe, while Jennifer Garner was growing up she never considered herself to be attractive. In fact the 42-year-old actress recently admitted it was only in college when she was first complimented on her appearance.

During the early 90's Garner made a huge lifestyle change and moved to New York City to try and become a successful actress, but one thing that helped her through this transitional period is that she was taught from an early age intelligence prevails over looks.

Men, Women & Children Review


Weak

There's a fundamental flaw to this multi-strand social media-themed drama: it's told completely from the perspective of older people who are fearful about the possibilities, rather than the generation for whom electronic communication is the norm. It's well-made by director Jason Reitman (age 36) and his cowriter Erin Cressida Wilson (50) from the novel by Chad Kultgen (38), but it kind of misses the point that this is the future of human interaction. So younger (or more switched-on) viewers won't buy the cautionary message.

IR's set in Austin, Texas, where Rachel and Don (Rosemarie DeWitt and Adam Sandler) are each so focussed on finding space outside their marriage that they don't notice that their teen son Chris (Travis Tope) is hanging out with self-proclaimed slutty cheerleader Hannah (Olivia Crocicchia). Her best friend Allison (Elena Kamporis) is starving herself to be like her, spurred on by her mother (Judy Greer), who is doing everything she can to make Allison a star. Meanwhile, Patricia (Jennifer Garner) is desperate to control how her daughter Brandy (Kaitkyn Dever) uses small-screens, especially worried about her growing friendship with Tim (Ansel Elgort), whose father (Dean Norris) is annoyed that he has quit the school football team.

Oddly, the film seems to adopt the adults' fears as its central tone: the internet and mobile phone communications are potentially dangerous, addictive and isolating. But this makes the film feel more like a sermon than a set of intertwined stories. A far more interesting approach would be to explore how communication and relationships are shifting due to the influence of online media. Indeed, the generational aspects to the films various plotlines are the most compelling elements, with clashing points of view between grown-ups and kids. But audience members who believe that mobile phones and social media sites are the future will struggle with the way Reitman presents them as inherently troublesome.

1970s rocker Danny Collins (Al Pacino) has earned a reputation for himself as a sell-out.

"Gone Girl" Scores Easy Box Office Victory Over "Dracula Untold"


David Fincher Ben Affleck Rosamund Pike Jennifer Garner

Well, it’s official – David Fincher’s Gone Girl is the winner in another weekend box office race. It wasn’t even a close one this time. On its second weekend, the mystery thriller saw a 29% drop, but still made it to $78 million.

Gone Girl, Ben Affleck
Gone Girl is Fincher's top grossing film to date.

With $26,8 million, Gone Girl narrowly beat our the critically panned Dracula Untold. The gory, vaguely historical flick came in second with $23,5 million, meaning that, despite abysmal reviews, Drac still has a shot at next week’s throne. Recently, director Gary Shore even let slip that he’s thinking about a possible sequel. Even though nothing’s been greenlit just yet, it looks like we won’t be rid of the Romanian prince for a while. Sigh.

Steve Carell's 'Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day' Aims For Family Audiences


Steve Carell Jennifer Garner Dylan Minnette Bella Thorne Megan Mullally Jennifer Coolidge Donald Glover Dick Van Dyke

It's taken quite a while for a film adaptation of the beloved children's book to appear, perhaps because its title is rather cumbersome: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. But there the full title is on posters (with commas) and across the screen (without them), although it could be argued that the story hasn't been adapted with quite as much reverence.

The cast of ‘Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’
‘Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ is based on the book from 1972

Originally published in 1972, the award-winning book by Judith Viorst won a shelf-load of awards. The film adaptation, by first-time screenwriter Ron Lieber, flips the story around: now it's not Alexander who's having such an awful day: he has wished his bad luck on everyone around him instead.

Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day Review


OK

There's nothing wrong with this bright and goofy family comedy, but there's nothing much to it either. As a bit of mindless entertainment, the film is smart and funny enough to keep audiences entertained, spinning a swirling vortex of bad luck and wacky slapstick around one lively family. But it's utterly weightless, without even a hint of an edge, and anyone who loathes either nutty physical gags or sappy sentimentality should steer well clear.

Everyone in the audience can understand how Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) feels: he's fed up with the fact that no one notices that his life is just one humiliation after another, so on his 12th birthday he wishes that his family would have a taste of his misfortune. Sure enough, everything that can go wrong does. Dad Ben (Steve Carell) has to take the baby with him to an important job interview; mom Kelly (Jennifer Garner) has a work event go horribly wrong; teen brother Anthony (Dylan Minnette) struggles to make prom night special for his demanding-diva girlfriend (Bella Thorne); and middle sister Emile (Kerris Dorsey) gets ill on opening night of the school play she's starring in. On the other hand, Alexander's day isn't so bad, as he finally catches the eye of cute girl Becky (Sidney Fullmer).

The plot is laid out as a series of minor calamities that escalate to crazed proportions as the day goes on, but only until the screenwriter decides to have mercy on the characters and let them bond to face the mayhem. Frankly, this is such a wildly happy family that nothing about the film is believable: their problems exist strictly for laughs. Thankful, most of the set pieces are genuinely funny due to the up-for-it actors, who make the most of their characters and the connections between them. There's also a terrific stream of cameo roles for comedy aces like Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie) and Donald Glover (Parks and Recreation). Dick Van Dyke even makes a witty appearance as himself.
