When I think of Jennifer Aniston, things that immediately spring to mind include stuff like high-profile relationships (and breakups), really toned arms, nice tan, perfect hair. In other words, she can sometimes seem larger than life, and it's easy to forget that she can still play the "everyday gal" with the best of them.
I loved her in The Good Girl and really enjoyed her performances in Office Space and Friends with Money, which is why it's exciting to get a good look at Management, a movie in which she portrays a pretty average lady alongside Steve Zahn and Woody Harrelson.
That said, um, I don't know what to make of this movie. The essentials all seem to be there (quirky with emotional depth) but something is a touch off about it. There are some strange scenes with Zahn flying through the air and dropping into pools, and Zahn on a tandem bike, etc. And then there are more earnest moments that look like they're aiming for realism. I'm up in the air about this one, but I'll keep an open mind.
Management will have a limited release on May 15. To check out the trailer and tell me what you think, just read more.
