I always admired Stone's acting ability. She's one of the few that can portray a female role where her character invariably displays depth, intelligence, and sensuality.
She's also an interesting individual to catch in a real
interview. I won't dispute Ms. Stone's physical charms. She is a beautiful woman. Even to my poor eyesight. But what I find even more attractive is the intelligence and sense of humor that sits behind it all. She strikes me as the sort of person I'd really like to get to know. (She's a 'bookworm' too!)
Arni Schwartzenegger is separate trip all by himself. The man with that improbable name, accent, and physique is probably the living embodiment of what used to be called the American Dream
and the proof of concept for the notion of the Self-made Man
. Horatio Alger
would have felt vindicated.
This thread provoked me to haul out the DVD and watch it last night.
+1 with Zaine, Renegade, lanux128 and y0himba. It's a great flick! Raises some thought provoking questions while still remaining fun all the way through. Perfect movie to watch (and discuss) with friends over a pizza on a Saturday night.
P.S. Sharon Stone is a looker. But Rachel Ticotin as Melina
wasn't too hard on the eyes either. (Good actress too!)
