It's hard not to like Betty -- she's a down on her luck waitress that has an absolutely golden presence. Who couldn't like her? It's difficult to know whether Zellweger's more likeable here, as Bridget, or in her "Chicago" role. In a very short time, she has established herself as leading lady material, and the camera loves her. As Betty, her crush on a soap opera star (Greg Kinnear as Actor George McCord) who is a doctor in his role, becomes more serious when her low-life husband is killed by two mobsters. Betty witnesses the murder, and unknowingly takes the car that has the merchandise the mobsters are searching for. When Betty leaves her small-town life for LA, she's disassociated from reality and is going to find "Dr. Ravell" her real love.
Kinnear is charming and alternately confused and attracted to Betty (who acts as a nurse in the soap opera). Morgan Freeman is terrific as Charlie, from the mob, who can't help his attraction to Betty, despite his mission. Only Chris Rock, who plays Charlie's son, seems to be miscast, in a whiny and bitter role. Chris -- you CAN play comedy! The screen shines when Zellweger is on it, and you are ultimately drawn into her world and are there when it comes crashing down around her.
LaBute did a marvelous job with the film, but the DVD extras are sparse and some of the deleted scenes are truly distasteful.Read more ›
