The Exorcism of Emily Rose stars Jennifer Carpenter as Emily and Tom Wilkinson as Father Moore. This movie is part courtroom drama and part supernatural thriller, but the combination is balanced. When Emily Rose dies after a failed exorcism performed by Father Moore, he is accused of negligent homicide and ends up in front of the judge. Erin Bruner (Laura Linney defends him. Thrills and chills will make you jump and the religious implications will make you rethink religion entirely.
I wasn't sure what to expect, since I don't really like fluffy romantic comedies all that much, but this one delivered.
Grant and Barrymore have great chemistry...if you like them, you should see this. Barrymore plays the slightly spacey, but sincere girl who's looking for a self-esteem boost after a bad relationship, next to Hugh Grant's corny but lovable aging rock-star 'has been' of the 80s pop group, called (what else), "Pop!".
He discovers her lyrical abilities and they team up to write a big hit for fatuous new teen pop idol (hysterically, yet frighteningly real portrayal here). Kristen Johnson (Third Rock from the Sun) delivers a great role as Barrymore's "Pop!" obsessed older sister. A nice 'feel-good' comedy.
