It's All About Jennifer Aniston, My Friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                 I have nothing against Jennifer Aniston--I love her hair!!!!!!!--though I wonder what went down between she and her mother that caused the latter to write a book.  Career jealousy, perhaps?

                                   No matter.  But, darlings, have you seen this eye drop commercial she does?  Oh, my God, it is so highly theatricalized!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Clearly, some part of her still has not gotten over playing Rachel on "Friends."

                                    There she sits, in a perfectly designed living room, with a view--and is that a piano???????--while she is randomly sketching on a pad, and preaching about dry eyes, and Eyelove drops, as though it will remedy all life problems, while she postures herself as not having any, in the first place.  Talk about false advertising.  This ad reveals fully the façade Jennifer Aniston has been living under, her entire career!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                       Why not simply put Jennifer up against a colored backdrop, have her look forward, and speak straightforwardly into the camera????????????

                                          Then, the ad would be all about the product, which it should be.

                                           Except it is not.

                                            It is all about Jennifer Aniston, dolls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thhe allure of Jennifer Aniston has always escaped me. Jennifer comes across as commodity something that you buy and sell she is Brand X. Like everything in Hollywood today its all homogenized everyone wants to look like everyone else. You can't tell one person from another. Not like say Barbara Stanwyck compared to Jennifer Jones each had their own mystic even their voices were distinctive. While I'm criticizing Hollywood what's up with all these "One Word Titles" are they just too lazy to think of good titles for films anymore. Film Noir titles were some of the best.

Drop in here, anytime.
The titles are lacking because good writing is.
You can see it on TV; the quality of, say, 'SVU'
has gone down considerably since Mariska Hariitay's
role has been beefed up by having her play Olivia as
Miss Glum, out of a Joan Didion novel. This show
used to be about the case, now it is about Olivia.
Thank God for Kelli Giddish and Peter Scanavino.

Speaking of titles, how about "La La Land?"
Gorgeous visuals, but did you buy the story or leads?
Not me.
