Reid 'Em and Weep

ms tara reid.jpg Speaking of My Boss's Daughter, CCC has something to admit.

We don't hate Tara Reid.

There, we said it. In fact, we kind of like her. She was the best thing about The Big Lebowski (You heard us! Bring it!), and Josie and the Pussycats was one of the better, and more clever, of the teen movies of its time. Yes, yes, we acknowledge that most of what Tara Reid has acted in is a blight to the cinema landscape, but she's managed to be in a couple of "eh" things. Cruel Intentions, for example, was another great teen movie of its time (shhh...she's only got a small role). And Dr. T & the Women by Robert Altman. And until we discovered taste, we though that Urban Legend was a pretty scary movie.

Alright, alright! She sucks, ok? Tara Reid hasn't contributed anything to the history of film. But she's kind of pretty, in a plain way. And she's been slinging dirt at Colin Farrell, with a real actual factual point. And she's got that voice! That raspy voice. That sexpot without trying, I-just-woke-up-from-a-deep-sleep-and-now-I-gotta-sing-the-blues voice! Please, someone, give her a worthy role! It's not like most actors and actresses really deserve the accolades the receive for plum roles! Just...someone...please. Please. And we still stand by what we said about The Big Crapowski and Josie and the P-cats.

Other Raspy Voiced Actresses We Like (and some we don't. guess which, it's fun!)

Shannen Doherty
Brittany Murphy
Demi Moore
Kathleen Turner
Faye Dunaway

First off, Robert Altman does not always make good pictures and Dr. T & the Women is a prime example. That movie sucked our will to live. All those blondes, all those bad Southern accents... oy, it gives me a headache just thinking about it. Secondly, Tara Reid's ONLY saving grace is that she's one of Carson Daly's less annoying ex-girlfriends. Being that Jennifer Love Hewitt bugs even more than Tara.

We end our refuting of CCC's defense of Tara Reid with two words: Body Shots.

That is all.

You like Tara Reid and don't like the Big Lebowski. Maybe you also like Vanilla Ice but think Rap sucks... Or perhaps you love hotdogs but hate all other meat products as you are a vegetarian.

In short you'll keep all of the worst and pass on the best. That sounds about right.

Tara Reid is one of the best actresses in the whole movie-business! If you don't like her please check whether you have a bad taste about VERY nice looking women!!!
