Featuring: Jamie King, Joshua Jackson, John Mellencamp
Rating: ** (not the worst, but not good)
This movie was a little shy of average. It certainly had it's moments though, one being Jamie King's portrayal of the lead female character, Baby. She shined as both the sensitive and driven young waif. As well as showing the flashes of anger that result if you cross her or her loved ones. Joshua Jackson did a fine job as the lead male character of Earl.
In a nutshell, Earl and Baby are planning on moving from small town Texas to big L.A. when all hell breaks loose around them. Nutty relatives, drug dealers, two-bit criminals and stupid folks abound. Through it all Earl, the normal one, and Baby, the sexy one, keep plugging away trying to move forward in their lives and help the ones they love.
Although it had a lot of cliches and was at times stupid there are worse ways to spend an evening than watching this movie. Jamie Kind is the one that kept this movie from a one star rating (don't bother). If you rent it, it should be for her performance alone.
