I just don't get it. I don't deny that the man has some acting talent, but good-looking? Surely not. His eyes are too small, as is his mouth, his face is flat, and square, and his hair is a cartoon. None of which matters in the slightest, except that he keeps being cast as someone really handsome, and that, to my way of thinking, contravenes the Trades Descriptions Act. I have never seen him in a movie where being handsome wasn't part of the deal, but put him in a movie where he also gets to be slightly creepy and he does actually score. Think Talented Mr Ripley, and Gattaca.
So, last night's movie outing was The Holiday. Well, I hadn't expected it to be quite such a chick-flick. Also unexpectedly badly-written. Winslet and Diaz faxed in their performances, and Jude Law and Jack Black as the love interests? Puh-lease. Rufus Sewell was, as ever, cracking, and Eli Wallach was a treat. But honestly? You can wait until it gets shown on telly, and then you must really not have anything better to do.
(I also don't get Brad Pitt.)
