Just when you thought summer movies couldn't get any dumber... here comes HEIGLR, a series of almost plausible films starring professional Hollywood casualty Katherine Heigl.

I have a certain fondness for Katherine Heigel because her appearance in the trailers for My Father, the Hero* were the first time I remember being sexually attracted to someone, but God she is in some terrible movies. My Father, the Hero might well be one of those movies, I only ever saw the trailers because I couldn't think of a way to convince my parents that "you can totally see her butt in that bathing suit" was a good reason to take me to see a movie.

*I was, many years later, disturbed to see those pictures show up on a celebrity nudes website. 15 year olds in skimpy bathing suits were great when I was 11, but putting them on a site meant for adult men is creepy.

You sometimes read about how there are hardly any roles in Hollywood for women who aren't rail-thin, blandly beautiful, and willing to make out with male leads old enough to be their grandfathers. And that seems like it's true.

But then I think about the career of someone like Ms. Heigl, and I feel like all of the actresses who aren't getting those roles are in some way dodging a bullet. I'm not sure what would be worse: not to realize your dream of being a movie star, or to try to take your craft seriously while doing these skinny, blandly beautiful male-wish-fulfillment roles.

I don't intend this as a criticism of Heigl at all as much as just further evidence that Hollywood has a real problem with women being their own people, being the subjects of their own stories, and that while this rewards certain types of actresses with plenty of work, those rewards must themselves feel somewhat dubious and ill-gotten.

Not only that, but at some point the movie-going public turns on the actress as being someone who is cashing in on shallow rom-com roles. Or when she is critical of the limited portrayal of women in movies, we tell her she should be happy to have work, there are a million up-and-coming actresses who are younger and prettier and would be happy to do these roles, she should stop shitting on the efforts of her collaborators and just promote the damn movie already.

Compromise abounds.

If she can pull it off in "One for the Money," Heigl will have one heck of a resurgence. That would be a wonderful series of movies to be involved in; the books have a great following, and there are a lot of them.

Is she a good Stephanie Plum? I have my doubts. If she is, though, she's found a great niche.

Hollywood has a bajillion problems with women, but Heigl's appallingly bad taste in projects is nobody's fault but her own. You can have the career you want - not necessarily in big Hollywood movies, but in smaller projects. For example, Kristen Bell has been in her share of flops, but she's also had excellent roles - I imagine that turning down big, idiotic projects was difficult from time to time, but the strategy has ultimately paid off.

She has taken those roles, but she has also established a career far beyond that. Between Veronica Mars and Reefer Madness and Forgetting Sarah Marshall and that Yeasayer video and that new Showtime show, she has a full-throated career. She has clearly sought out interesting projects, even if she also winds up in some crap.

Also, FWIW, I saw When In Rome (blame my girlfriend), and it's shockingly not-terrible as far as those things go. If nothing else, it has Kate Micucci in a key supporting role, which is fun.

Like, I officially defy them to produce a rough draft of that script, there is no possible way that anyone wrote more than one -- and I suspect that in the existing draft, the backspace key was never used.

Heigl's appallingly bad taste in projects is nobody's fault but her own. You can have the career you want - not necessarily in big Hollywood movies, but in smaller projects.

Maybe. There's always a pretty large dose of luck in this, though. One of the things that people involved in film often talk about is just how many different ways a film can be fucked up--and so many of them you can't know about ahead of time. A lot of times actors will sign up to a movie with a terrific script and a director who's work they respect: then the script gets mangled by the studio and the director gets replaced by an idiot. Or not even that: the film is just cut incredibly badly or scored incompetently or a minor but crucial supporting actor role is hopelessly miscast or...

Actors usually have no idea at all if the movie they're working on will be great or dreck by the time it's done. It's no wonder they can end up being neurotic or prima donnaish--so much of the ultimate value of the work they do depends entirely on forces over which they have no control.
