Thinking of seeing Australia?

And why not? For the women, Hugh Jackman, People magazine's sexiest male, is in it. And for some men (not me) Nicole Kidman is in it. But you might want to reconsider. Here's an excerpt of one person's opinion:

Kidman is one of those women who turns other women off. And no, not just because she's pretty and we're jealous. It is because we perceive, and men don't, that she's one of the most overrated actors in the world, a woman who has been the kiss of death in practically every movie she has starred in.

Kidman is exquisitely accomplished at being awful. Did anyone see Cold Mountain? The sweeping American epic (note: another epic) foundered on the rocks of her gormless mirror-gaze. She can't act. Instead, she drifts around films like a lost porcelain doll, looking frozen, brittle and vapid, staring at the camera with her oh-golly-look-how-I'm-looking-interesting blue eyes.

Yikes. Ouch. Can't say as I disagree, though. Nicole is just one of many, A list actors who are greatly over rated. Read the whole scathing article here.
