Great article! Pfeiffer all the way; She's never given a bad performance and I've never been annoyed by her.

Let's not make a habit of linking to long-winded Huff Post articles, shall we?

Julia Roberts career is not dead. She's on a movie set right now in NYC. Just like whoopi recently said. Julia will always work.

There's something captivating about Pfeiffer's voice. Very hot.

Didn't read this long ass article, but with Huffpost being so unabashedly SJW you would think they could give writing articles that pit females against each other for no discernible reason a miss. I suppose that that's the point with SJWs though - the real issues go over their head.

What Lies Beneath still scares the shit out of me.

FROM LINKED ARTICLE:
[quote]When we think of Pfeiffer’s career highlights, no two performances are alike. She’s a junkie in “Scarface,” a frazzled columnist in “The Witches of Eastwick,” a chaste maiden in “Dangerous Liaisons,” a deliciously seductive villain in “Batman Returns,” a hostile aristocrat in “Wolf,” an enterprising schoolteacher in “Dangerous Minds,” a spooked housewife in “What Lies Beneath,” a murderous free spirit in “White Oleander,” a racist busybody in “Hairspray.”
Go ahead and squawk, but my favorite Pfeiffer performance may be in the very sweet ONE FINE DAY. She's darling and self-possessed at the same time. George Clooney isn't a bland washout like he sometimes is, either.

If we like her does that make us 'bisexual' - like Tom Daley?

They’re both great actresses and they’ll adapt. They’ve been around since the 1980s and they have an enduring appeal.

Julia Roberts has a puppet head. Michelle doesn't.

Doesn't Julia have a successful movie in theaters right now? And didn't Michelle's most recent films (mother! and Murder on the Orient Express) flop?

r14 they said julia's performance in wonder fell flat, and both of michelle's roles current were scene stealers.

R14 Wonder will gross more domestically than MOTOE and mother! combined, though MOTOE is doing well overall.
This article is just some Internet Gay bashing one actress because he likes another.

I had a lot of issues with ORIENT EXPRESS, but Michelle made the whole thing worthwhile, overall. She and Julianne Moore (seriously) are my favorite actresses...wish they'd do something together.

"Frankie and Johnny" was awful.

She’ll always get a pass from me for the great work she did in Grease 2. And I ain’t joking.

I didn't mind Frankie and Johnny. Her gay couple friends were a jejune touch, mind you.

Even the best actors can't succeed when they are wildly miscast. You have to remember that Frankie and Johnny started as an off broadway play and starred Kathy Bates in the role Pfeiffer took for the movie. Let's just say that Kathy Bates was the right type for the role.
The strange thing is that Kathy Bates won her Misery Oscar just as Frankie and Johnny was opening. Talk about lousy timing! If F&J had been made just a year later, I'm sure Bates would have gotten the part, she'd have at least gotten another Oscar nomination recreating her original role, and probably would have had a bigger career as an A lister.
Timing is everything.

Dangerous Liaisons is one of my favorite movies, such great performances. Pfeiffer broke my heart. And the Batman movie, very different but very great performance.
Michelle has always been one of my favorites but why compare her with Julia? Julia does not have the same kind of range as Pfeiffer. They aren't even comparable IMO.

Michelle is amazing and I have a little hatred for her children that inspired the career hiatus.
That's what nannies are for, Michelle!!!

[R21]-I have to disagree, I don't think she was miscast at all. Michelle's character in Frankie and Johnny was a victim of domestic violence. A woman doesn't have to look like Kathy Bates to be a victim. Women from all walks of life and all socioeconomic backgrounds have had to deal with this problem. The character of Frankie is emotionally beaten down, and Michelle plays the role with great sensitivity and vulnerability. I think it's one of her best performances.

How is it possible to have an article of that length with no mention of The Fabulous Baker Boys, with Pfeiffer’s most critically acclaimed performance?
|by Anonymous||reply 27||12/08/2017|
Article is bizarre. Sounds like a gay with an ax to grind against Julia. Not even sure why they're being compared.

Team Julia Roberts. But I like Michelle too.

Terrible article. Roberts has a huge sleeper hit in theaters right now ("Wonder"), while Michelle's comeback films both underperformed. I would rather have seen Sharon Stone in Orient Express. She would have been more convincing as an extroverted seductress than Michelle was. And Sharon needs a comeback right now more than those two.

Michelle Pfeiffer is a godess and can't do no wrong. She shines even in smaller roles. That said, the comparison is bizarre and pointless.

In honor of this thread I watched What Lies Beneath which I had never seen. 1) she is untouched by age in this movie. year 2000. Harrison Ford has a spectacular DILF bod in this movie. Nifty movie. She is better than he is. She's fully in and makes a lot of good subtle choices.

Hey 33, I haven't seen it since it was in theaters so I'm going to watch it now. It's on demand on STARZ...I didn't even know I had STARZ...
