She almost ruined Groundhog Day for me with her lack of sexiness and poor acting. So I almost hated her. But then she started promoting anti-aging creams and my nearly-hatred turned to schadenfreude lightly basted with pity.
I do hate her masculine name though. She has to shoulder the blame for that.
I no absolutely nothing about her to judge..and even if I had seen the movies she was in, I still wouldn't have enough evidence to make up my mind..sometimes my P does that to me
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
She's decently good in sex, lies and videotape. Unremarkable, but in that role her unremarkability is an asset. In other movies I range from being indifferent to finding her offputting.

I can totally see this. I was trying to think of how to explain it, but this is perfect. I think that quality works in sex, lies and videotape because the character is so insecure that her awkwardness as an actress doesn't detract.
Another actress that affects me in much the same way as Andie: Emily Procter. Same vague Southern accent, same mostly stoic manner. Might be lovely people in real life, but as actresses, I just don't see the appeal.
