MOVIE: The Gift

GUEST: Xgirl

NUTSHELL: Cate Blanchett channels the spirit world and freaks everyone out in her hick hometown when she fingers Keanu Reeves as the wife beating killer of sweetie pie Katie Holmes.

GOOD THINGS: Hilary Swank; Keanu, very convincing as an evil dude; suspense a la Raimi; Greg Kinnear; Billy Bob Thornton script without starring role for Bill Paxton

BAD THINGS: Giovanni Ribisi as mental case; figuring out the killer before the movie ended; the year’s only ensemble movie sans Benecio Del Toro

FEATURES: Katie Holmes baring her breasts for no reason; swamps; Rosemary Harris; Gary Cole

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: Keanu stalking Cate; dead Katie stalking Cate; Giovanni stalking Cate; Hilary’s black eye; Hilary’s hair; Hilary’s wardrobe; blue diamond scene

NOTABLE: Katie Holmes acting very un-Joey like; Keanu is scary!

BEST PART: Cate Blanchett challenging Meryl Streep in the accent department; Society function scene; brown paint scene

BEST LINE: I’m the best fuck in town.

CROWNS: 4 out of 5
