Basic Instinct has nothing of value to say and there's no way the scriptwriter thought she did a good job, unless something got really fucked during production. It's even worse than the rather entertaining and overly passive Are We There Yet, if for no reason but those charming kids.

There's much to celebrate in 2 Weeks' Notice, perhaps the first movie in which I enjoyed Sandra Bullock's performance. It actually a pretty smart movie, among the few romantic comedies I enjoyed, but, as could be expected from such fare, a really fucked-up and overly-common ending.
