Jennifer Aniston is The Good Girl

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 31, 2002

News flash! Jennifer Aniston can actually act. I really enjoyed her performance in Office Space, but I thought it was just a one time thing. She was the best thing about The Good Girl, which sounds like a backhanded compliment but isn’t. The movie was a little uneven here and there (although I can’t pinpoint why), but Aniston’s performance tied it all together for me. With strong performances in Office Space, The Good Girl, and The Iron Giant, she needs to stop doing shark-jumped sitcoms (next week, on a very special episode of Friends: Rachel marries Ross’s 5 year-old son and then leaves him for Joey’s monkey) and focus on movies full time. With the right role, she could probably win an Oscar. (After all, if Halle Berry can win one…)
