Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Anna Faris!

Apr. 15, 2013by: Johnny Moreno

Welcome to Movie Jail, a facility like any other, only its inmates are Hollywood writers, directors, actors and producers. This column will serve as a Movie Jail trial. We will put one defendant on trial; lay out arguments for the Prosecution and Defense. And we leave it up to YOU, the reader, to decide whether the defendant is guilty of his or her crime. What crime? The crime of cinematic inconsistency or on the flipside, consistently being a stinking shithouse.

The Defendant


Owen Wilson

The Case

The Prosecution: Movie 43, The Dictator, Yogi Bear, Alvin and the Chipmunks, What's Your Number?, Mama's Boy, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, The Hot Chick*

Ladies and gentleman of the jury, with the release of Scary Movie 5 last week, we got to wondering what Ms. Anna Faris had been up to since she's not listed in the cast. She's a staple of the series, so we took a look at her IMDB page and holy shit balls were we surprised by the amount of utter crap she's been in. Now we did like Ms. Faris earlier in her career, and felt that she found pretty good work being a utility player in movies like Lost in Translation and her bit part in Brokeback Mountain, but if we're talking about steadily smelling up the cinemas, there's no other contender than Ms. Faris. Looks only take you so far, her choices have been abysmal over the last few years, starring in one of the worst movies of last year, Movie 43, which garnered an astounding 4% on Rotten Tomatoes. You can throw a dead squirrel against a window and film it for 90 minutes and it'll still break double digits on the Rotten Tomatoes meter. A few years in Movie Jail may do the gal some good, and set her back on the path of righteousness.


The Defense: Lost in Translation, Scary Movie 1-3, Cloud With a Chance of Meatballs, Observe and Report, Smiley Face, House Bunny, Waiting *

Ladies and Gentleman of the jury, what's wrong with an attractive lady finding her niche in Hollywood, with certain projects, and running with it? Ms. Faris seems to be keeping busy and having fun with each one of these projects. For how dumb it is, House Bunny consistently entertains us anytime we have to watch it with a chick. It's silly, harmless fun. She even spread herself out voicing the adorable upstart weather girl Sam Sparks in the fantastic Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and is reprising the role later on this year. Her most recent film that will be out later this year, I Give It a Year, from the producers of Love Actually and the writer of Borat, has already been released in the UK and received very positive reviews. So why lock up a blonde bombshell like Ms. Faris when it looks like she could have a potential hit on her hands?


IN CLOSING...

So, whats to be done with Anna Faris? Is her track record too putrid of a rap sheet to let her go free? Is she that good of a utility player to avoid Movie Jail? And the most important question to be asked, once all evidence is taken into consideration, we ask you The Jury, is Anna Faris GUILTY or NOT GUILTY?

Lets hear YOUR arguments, either side, by STRIKING BACK BELOW.

*The court recognizes that all movies are subjective, so relax.

WHAT SAY YOU, GUILTY OR NOT?


LAST WEEK'S VERDICT

It is the jury's decision that after reviewing last week's evidence, the court finds Owen Wilson NOT GUILTY of all charges. At the end of the day, the jury citied Mr. Wilson's onscreen likability and charisma, and his contributions with the great Wes Anderson. It's something we can't argue over either, so Eli Cash walks away free and clear. I know you, asshole!

Anna Faris started out okay but she became progressively more annoying as her career went on. Now hers is one of those names that when I hear it as part of the cast of a film, it gives me second thoughts about seeing it.

NOT GUILTY

100% absolutely NOT GUILTY! She's a beautiful woman with excellent comedic and physical comedy skills, one of the best working in the business today. Sure she's had some clunkers but what great actor hasn't? She's also shown she can handle dramatic work with the best of them, but knows that she's great at comedy so goes back to that. I cannot tell you how hard I laugh at her facial expressions in SMILEY FACE still, and I've seen that movie about dozen times--and not stoned. Same goes for

Same goes for HOUSE BUNNY (a completely ridiculous movie) but she is so damn charming! I also want to mention her in TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT, a highly underrated movie for which she gave a solid performance, not the best but it was pretty great.. Not guilty!!!

Tough one for me... Well, first of all why isn't "Just Friends" in the defense list? The movie is funny (for anyone without a stick up their ass at least) and she is great in that! You even put on a photo from the movie but don't even mention it in the text?! Besides there is something that someone said below that is a complete lie when mentioning she couldn't make any film she was in better when in fact it is just the opposite and she in fact has turned may unbearable movies into slightly

Yes, it's a shame she has butchered her face quite a bit and she should definitely pick better scripts but I can't condemn to movie jail someone so cute and naturally funny (and no, we don't have many of those working right now) so I must say Not guilty.

No problem, for the same reason some people like movies such as "The Brotherhood of the Wolf", for an instance, for its fantasy, Gothic tone and action (i like it as well), some people like "Just Friends"because it's a comedy and for some reason it made them laugh and smile through the movie. A comedy is actually the least subjective type of movie to analyze or try to explain if or why you like it or not; if you laughed you like it, if you didn't then you don't.

Very Guilty

In the few good roles she's had (the incredible May, Lost In Translation, Waiting) her characters are either not in the movie enough to make a dent, or she is (quite handily at that) overshadowed by the greater talent surrounding her.

In her lead roles, she's always an unbearable chore to watch. She always looks like she's acting, she never feels natural, which is the mark of a terrible actress. Plus, all but one of her lead films suck major ass.

Side note- what is with all the love for

She's cute and funny! Some of her movies arnt the best, but even then she'll still the best thing about them. Also this may just be because of my giant Chris Evans crush, but "What's Your Number?" was adorable (from a female perspective). Most guys around here dont like romcoms to begin with, but us ladies appreciate them.

Farris Goes to Jail

Ann Farris is guilty! She has made many bad movie choices . We have seen too much of the perky, jolly character she plays a lot. I like to think she has the potential to be a good actress, but her resume does not show it. I think she should be taken away to Movie Jail for a few years with some slight movie career help.

She's not bad, but not exactly good either. Heck, I found her boring on Entourage and she played herself. Sorry, but sadly I think the verdict falls to guilty for her.

Really, if you were to think of all the bad movies she has done, what's the first (and most likely only) thing that you can say wasn't awful about that movie? Anna, of course.
I wish she cared a bit more about the roles she's choosing, but other than that, she's awesome.

Not a huge fan of her work

She makes bad choices. Even her decent roles, she is competely overshadowed by others. In my opinion, she is fun, but can't carry a film on her own. We need actors and actresses who are fun and make others look better. She serves a purpose and makes bad choices, but she isn't breaking the law. Not guilty.

She needs to get her shit together, for sure, but she is fantastic in Waiting, and her turn in Just Friends is one of the funniest chick roles in a long time. If you don't laugh when she's bombed and eating toothpaste, you are a bad person. She needs to pick better roles, but I don't think she's quite ready for Movie Jail just yet.

she's a great comedic actress who doesn't have the greatest choice or roles available to her. Yeah, a lot of her movies have been garbage but she's been the best thing in them and, when she gets her hands on a stronger role, she steps up big-time. And, unusually for a Hollywood actress, she did well in the voice booth for CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS.

Anna Faris is not only beautiful but a great comedic actress! Her movie choices may not always be the best but she always is the best part of anything she does. Don't hate but I was actually a huge fan of the scary movie series since I was a kid. They were always a guilty pleasure for me! She's an actress that dosnt just relay on her looks like Megan fox! She also has great comedic chops!

Easily not guilty. Sure she's been in a ton of bad movies, but I don't think she always had the greatest quality scripts to choose from. It's not like she's turning away Scorsese and PTA to do Scary Movie 4, she does what she's offered unfortunately, and is almost always great despite of the terrible "talent "around her.

I will say not 100% guilty. Even though her choice of films may lack...quality, she does ultimately stand out as the best part of an otherwise junk heap. With a proper role in a more creditable film she will do just fine. Spoofs of today have changed a great deal since Scary Movie 1. Now it is more like poking you in the side naming each film being mocked for 90min. This has certainly become the "go to" in spoofs as of late. I don't need to know not to see Scary Movie 5 cause it looks like crap

I don't need to know not to see Scary Movie 5 cause it looks like crap to begin with. Had Anna Faris been in it, movie would still suck but at least she would have been the better part. Smart that both Anna Faris and Regina Hall aren't there. Smart move ladies. You both were the best things about the 4 movies.

Not Guilty

She's one of those actresses that you just assume all her movies are bad. She herself isnt that bad, but her acting personality is so perfect for a slew of bad films. And she has done them. But the films she has been good in have been pleasant surprises. So while her good films and bad films may total a similar number, the unexpectedly good carry more weight than the predictably. Also, props for avoiding Scary Movie 4, she may not have avoided Movie 43, but that was a nuke that caught a lot of

Next up on the stand: Ivan Reitman

Ivan Reitman has done so many terrible films and yet gets credit for the few good movies he made (mainly Ghostbusters and Stripes). I don't even understand why he is held in such high regard. His son has already proven a better filmmaker.

If not for one reason..... Smiley Face, that movie is hilarious just because of Anna.

Not Guilty

Despite some bad choices, I've always found her to be the best thing in those movies. A very funny and really damn pretty actress, no way, not guilty.

Not guilty for me. True, some of her movies are crap. Her filmography so far is either a Hit or a Miss. However, it's because of Miss Faris charms that makes her likeable.

I have to agree with ElderPredator below on this one. Faris has done some goofy crap but I find her rather appealing in most of her movies. She started out in the spoof world but has moved up to some pretty funny roles like Waiting and Just Friends. I enjoyed her brief role in Take Me Home Tonight as well. Maybe I just have a strange attraction to her but I gotta go with Not Guilty.

She ends up in a lot of the same "raunchy comedy"-type films, but there have been occasions where she did well. I think she was great in the recent I Give It a Year. There's a scene where her character attempts a threesome but soon discovers the myriad logistical challenges that come with one, and it was pretty funny. Perhaps probation at most; far worse actresses have been on the Movie Jail stand.

Gulity.

The only films I enjoyed her in were Just Friends, Waiting, What's Your Number, and Lost In Translation. And she was far from being the best things about those films.

No way. She's hot, fun and surprisingly talented when the role calls for it. Sure she's the modern day "spoof" girl but she's leaving that behind finally. Also I thought she was great in "The Dictator".
