Director Spike Jonze isn't my favorite, having - in my personal, honest opinion - decimated the childhood favorite WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE by creating a cold, depressing movie with a unlovable little kid as Max (I can't be the only one who wanted to choke the life out of that kid in the first 15 minutes of the film) and a thankless role for the otherwise glowing Catherine Keener. However, seeing Spike check out Scarlett Johansson's chest for any changes as the other stars of his new flick, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara took pictures on the red carpet at the Rome premiere was pretty funny.
Time will only tell if HER is going to be a touching, funny film or just another let-down, seeing as how the story is banking on the concept of falling in love with your computer system (ala the jokes being circulated about iWhatever's Siri). The fact that ScarJo is the voice that Phoenix (who looked very much like the total kook that he's become famous for being known as, making those great expressions while standing with Johansson) becomes enamored with makes the story much more believable.
