Amy Adams is, without reservation, poised to inherit the romantic comedy crown Julia Roberts was more than willing to walk away from. And after sitting through the dreck of Night at the Museum 2 where Adams’s plucky Amelia Earhart was the only redeeming thing, it’s evident she could act her way out of a Chinese prison camp (do those even exist?!?) with both hands tied behind her back.
Adams is a revelation and there is nothing wrong with the plucky heroines she portrays time and time again. It’s a rare quality that few actresses can believably pull off and do so without being annoying. I would watch her in just about anything, even if we already can tell how the movie will end.
