A tour de force of how not to make a black comedy!
I had a "three-fer" this weekend. Three horrible movies in a row. The Rocky
does Alcatrez cuss fest called "Undefeated"...actually so bad it doesn't
deserve comment in this forum, then WHAM! follow that with Serving
Sarah....unspeakably slow mall movie goo, and then...Well friends...pardon
the pun, this one is "el stinker-roo" magnifico!
I'll give one this. Black comedy is hard to do. The last one I liked was
Catch -22. So this is hallowed ground these attempts to make life's bad
things be funny. This one doesn't get it done.
Ok here it is, The Good Girl, isn't funny, it isn't well acted, it is slow,
it is long and all the trite unimaginative things it tries to do fall with
the thud of a sure looser.
The "artsie fartsie" critics seem to be all silly about this thing but
believe me it will leave you cold and wondering who put the cash up for such
So here I am ...it's Sunday and the only good movie in town is Big Fat Greek
Wedding...so maybe for my Labor Day movie I'll go see it
Staying home and sorting my sock drawer would be better than this thing.
Don't be taken in by the reviews that say anything good about it. There is
nothing good about it except I don't have to think about it after warning my
fellow movie fans to be sure and miss this one!.

The girl that wanted to please everyone
Miguel Arteta is a very good director. He should be given credit for
getting a good performance of the ensemble cast of this film.
Jennifer Aniston gets out of her "Friends" persona and proves that
given the right vehicle she can deliver, as she does here. She's a good
girl and wants to do good by the different men around her.
She's married to John C. Rilley, in a marriage that has gone sour. You
wonder how this pair got together in the first place. Maybe Justine in
her narrow vision saw him as her ticket for a better life. She's in a
joyless job where boredom is the norm. Life in that part of the Bible
Belt must be very dull since there is nothing else in the lives of
these people the story depicts.
Her ticket to salvation is Holden, beautifully portrayed by Jake
Gyllenhaal. He's a rebel who doesn't know what he really wants until he
meets Justine in the store where they both work. He brings into her
life an excitement she's definitely missing from the life she leads
with a boring husband. He strikes the right chords in her soul and she
responds to him.
The rest of the cast, Tim Blake Nelson, Deborah Rush, Mike White and
Zooey Deschand, are very effective.
In the end, Justine is just as happy to accept her fate and get into
what is expected of a good girl to do..
