Video Beaverhausen: Not a Piece of "Cake" for Jennifer Aniston
You won't think of her solely as a sitcom star after watching this. She definitely displays she's a serious actor No make-up! No one-liners! No eye liner! (Actually, I think she does wear eye liner in the film.) Oscar-worthy? Not sure about that.
The film is basically about the efforts the ill can make to get well and basically details a road trip from L.A. to Tijuana and back, and then some. Yeah, it rambles a bit.
Felicity Hoffman and Bill Macy are in this, so you know it's top-drawer, though it's Adriana Barazza who shines especially as Aniston's girl Friday.
Despite her sickness, Aniston gets to bed a hot guy or two. One with a British accent. I need to grab some tips!
I definitely had the sense that Cake could have used a tad more editing. Some shots run way too long. But it is basically a star vehicle. Hardly a memorable movie but carry on, JA! You can show those Pitts a thing or two.
