Top Five Movies of Anna Faris
I know I am not alone in this, but I find Anna Faris amazingly sexy. For some reason, she conveys innocence with a hidden intelligence underneath all of her roles that I find alluring. I know I am probably reading into it – it could be that she just plays dumb and innocent well. However, all of these roles seem like she is winking at us behind it all. We’ll see if that carries over to her latest movie, “Take Me Home Tonight.” If nothing else, I’m sure there will be some shot of her looking great while Eddie Money plays in the background and that is something worthwhile.
In making this list, I also found that Anna has a great way of appearing with other amazing looking women in her movies. It’s kind of the gift that keeps giving.
Uma Thurman is the headliner in this film from Ivan Reitman (“Ghostbusters”) and that is a perfect example of another attractive girl. It’s probably a movie for people who like comic books, but Eddie Izzard and Wanda Sykes do provide some heavyweight comic credentials.
Again with beautiful women, in this case the underrated Rachel McAdams. As far as watching Rob Schneider movies goes, if you get to Anna and Rachel, at least there is something worth watching in this one.
We all have guilty pleasures. For me, it was the first “Scary Movie.” (I actually saw “Scary Movie 2” and “Scary Movie 3” in theaters as well through some misguided sense of hope in duplicating the first one’s humor. It’s part of why I’m jaded regarding any sequel.) Plus, since I have a soft spot for brunettes, I love Anna’s look in this one (and it took me a while to get used to her as a blonde.)
Along the same lines as “Office Space” this is a great workplace movie about what we do when work sucks. Anna is great, but it also has “Freaks and Geeks” alumnus John Francis Daley as well as Ryan Reynolds and Dane Cook before they got huge.
It might be a small part, but as far as I’m concerned it is the one that gives me the best look at her self-awareness of the roles she has played and would continue to play. If there is an actor in this movie, chances are this will be my favorite role of theirs as this movie ranks near the top of my list. Anna and Scarlett Johansson make it lovely and Bill Murray makes it heartfelt.
