Holy hell there is something hypnotic about Paula Patton
. Between the legend (Tom Cruise), the up-and-can-currently-do-no-wronger (Jeremy Renner), the cheeky and universally amusing funny guy (Simon Pegg) and the exotic foreign babe newcomer (Lea Seydoux), you'd think that Paula would have been buried by the rest of the cast of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL
. Instead, she's one of the film's standouts, with people like my mom and her little chicken's nest of cougars pecking about telling me that I should go on my "little hot woman website" and write more stuff about the "tough kinda black - she's black right? - lady." I was surprised to have enjoyed MI:4 as much as I did. Even more surprised that I've had the hankering to watch it again while it's still in theaters just because it's that much fun. And yes, a big part of my reasoning is Patton. Although my undying affection for Renner helps too.
