The Garner-Juno Rule

This is my new rule of thumb: The Garner-Juno Rule is named, obviously, for Jennifer Garner's performance in Juno. It's the point at which an actor can deliver a solid performance and I still can think that there are 100 actors out there who could do the job as well or better.

Interesting rule.

I thought Garner was onoe of the brighter spots in Juno; she took a rather one-dimensional role and breathed life into it... I give Diablo Cody credit for not making that character into a one-note caricature, yet I give more to Garner and Jason Reitman.

I don't disagree, however, that there are plenty of actresses who could have played the part.
