Jersey Girl the next big bomb?
In 2004, Ben and Jen give it another go onscreen with the Kevin Smith directed
Jersey Girl, which should be out in March. It will likely do better than Gigli — well,
ANY movie would do better than Gigli, so that’s not saying much — but
the presence of Smith will ensure at least some comedic gold.
Ben’s buddy Matt Damon continues his Bourne Identity commitments in
the creatively titled The Bourne Supremacy, out in July. In this installment,
Jason Webb (Damon) tracks down an assassin who murders a Chinese politician.
There’s the terrible-looking Catwoman movie that stars the terrible-looking
Halle Berry (okay, so she’s not that awful to look at — all the
more reason to hate her). This one’s out in July, but it’s probably
not worth your money unless you need to see a bodacious babe pounce on criminals
in skin-tight black leather.
Then again, if you need to see bodacious babes in helmets and boots, there’s
also Troy, starring Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom and Eric Bana. Who’s Trojan
horse would you want to ride?
Or you can check out that bodacious babe in sandals — Mel Gibson’s
Jesus flick, The Passion of the Christ, stars James Caviezel as the robed one.
Crazy religious people who haven’t seen the film are already enraged.
Perhaps they should chill out and see Saved, a promising teen drama starring
Jena Malone, Patrick Fugit, Mandy Moore and Macaulay Culkin.
