    Still think this is Aniston’s finest performance, and both Reilly and Deschanel do some of their best work.

    Thanks, Rob, I totally agree. I’m still mad that Aniston didn’t get an Oscar nomination for this.

    It’s fascinating to look at how some actresses get largely overlooked for their best work (e.g.: Aniston in “The Good Girl” and Zellweger in “Nurse Betty”), and then react by making significantly less interesting choices, starring in either the most commercial (Aniston) and/or Oscar-baity (Zellweger) films as possible.
