She may not particularly popular among film fans but I've always been very keen on Jennifer Aniston (at least in part thanks to her always-prominent 'nippular area'). As she proved in Friends over the years, she's a talented comedic actress, but she is capable of more varied roles as well, such as slutty nympho, Julia Harris, in the Horrible Bosses films, and accident victim Claire in this year's Cake.
Most of her work has ended up being in sub-standard romantic comedies though, and while a bit of light-hearted fluff is fine in moderation, she has often seemed stuck in a rut, or even a downwards spiral into oblivion as harsher critics might claim. Here I've taken a look, bravely, some might say, at a selection of her films in the hopes of finding a gem or two amongst the generic rom-coms and other bits and pieces:
Along Came Polly (2004)
Rumour Has It (2005)
Love Happens (2009)
The Bounty Hunter (2010)
I think I've punished myself enough for now but, worryingly, I have seen more of her films so I'll will be back with another Aniston round-up at some point. Oh well, at least she's a treat on the eyes. That's probably part of the problem though...
