As a person I think she's impossibly pretentious, but I nevertheless have to admit that she's a skilled actress. Hey, I can't totally hate the person who brought Margot Tenenbaum to life, can I? Now, it might be odd to classify someone who was in one of the most profitable films of 2008 as being due for a "comeback," but to be honest I didn't even know she was in Iron Man when it was being released, she figured so little in the promotion and marketting of it.
Dudes, what ever happened to Bridget Fonda? She started out the 90s strong with Single White Female, Singles and Point of No Return and ended the decade with Jackie Brown and A Simple Plan and then seemed to drop off the face of the earth. Come back, Bridget!
Is it my appreciation for her work in Leaving Las Vegas that makes me include her? No. It's all about Adventures In Babysitting and, to a lesser extent, Soapdish. Plus, she was hilarious playing a version of herself in Hamlet 2. Deserving of a comeback? Yes. However, the fact that IMDB lists something called "Piranha 3-D" as one of her upcoming projects doesn't make me feel too hopeful.
Hey, remember when Kirsten Dunst was the young actress and was in everything? That wasn't so bad, was it? Don't we all have fond memories of Interview with the Vampire, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Dick and Bring It On? I know I do. Now that the Spider Man series has hit a creative speedbump and is going in a different direction, she needs a vehicle.
The Supporting Actress cruse strikes again. Prior to winning an Oscar for Cold Mountain there was Chicago, Bridget Jones's Diary, Jerry Maguire, One True Thing and Nurse Betty. Since Cold Mountain there's been Cinderella Man, Miss Potter, New In Town and My One and Only. She deserves better than that, doesn't she?
