She's gone a long way since CRUEL INTENTIONS 2.

I loved her in JUNEBUG.

As a "star" who can carry a film, it is.

As a reputable actress? No. She already has an Oscar nomination under her belt.

Well, I just wasn't aware of her as an actress until "Enchanted," and then I just looked at her on IMDB and was kind of surprised by how much she's been in that I've seen! Catch Me If You Can and The Office, mostly.

re: I didn't realize Amy Adams was such a big actress

Even though it's a little weird, it's one of my favorite movies. It's also airing on Lifetime in the upcoming weeks. (At least, TiVo thinks it is.)

And just for fun... re: I didn't realize Amy Adams was such a big actress

I loved her in Junebug and on The Office, and she's been delightful in everything I've seen since then. Definitely a fan.

She was a revelation in JUNEBUG. Truly a deserving nomination.

I remember her from a really cheesy episode of SMALLVILLE back in the days, and I also remember seeing her in CHARMED (that's also because I have the DVD re: I didn't realize Amy Adams was such a big actress ). I think it's funny that she had small roles in those sort of cheesy shows and now she is one of the most well-regarded actresses of her generation.
She was fantastic in CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, though I still wasn't familiar with her name then.
It wasn't until JUNEBUG that I actually knew her as Amy Adams.

She's got a new one coming out, as well. Mrs. Pettigrew Lives for a Day.

DOUBT is the one I can't wait for.
MRS. PETTIGREW looks pretty funny though.

I agree with ray.
She looks great in the previews.

I've loved her since her delightfully bitchy Marvel Ann in Psycho Beach Party.

I love that feature on IMDb...I only just noticed it recently.

Sunshine Cleaning with Emily Blunt looks like an interesting project, too.

IMDB is turning into the place for all info on TV and movies.

It's taking over the world!

(I've always thought IBDB should be more like IMDB, with photos, message boards, and the like.)

You can also currently see her in Charlie Wilson's War, along with a stellar cast.
