Washington Post movie critic Ann Hornaday has a strange way of judging actresses. In her review of the new grossout comedy "Wanderlust," Hornaday complained that actress Jennifer Aniston's breasts were digitally altered in a sequence where she takes off her top.
Somehow this proves she's still "more suited to TV rather than the big screen." Surely Hornaday realizes she's been a movie star for ten years and hasn't been a TV regular since 2004. Let's not state this new movie is classic cinema, but can't you be a great actress without exposing yourself? Hornaday seems to hate that she would star in a nudity-"enhanced" movie without joining in.
She complained about the movie:
... when it's not stooping to slow-motion scenes of superannuated nudists running across a field in all their pendular glory. Male frontal nudity may be the driving raison d'etre of "Wanderlust," which also features a sequence of Aniston taking off her top - an image that's digitally scrambled, presumably according to the actress's contract.
Between this film and last summer's "Horrible Bosses," Aniston's coyness - starring in explicit movies without having to be explicit herself - seems to be becoming her stock in trade. It's not a particularly commendable one, and "Wanderlust" does little to disprove that she's still a star more suited to TV rather than the big screen.
