Jodie Foster is the Brave #1 for the Weekend

This guy is busy!!

The Jodie Foster crime-thriller The Brave One (Warner Bros), directed by Neil Jordan, topped the box office with an estimated $14 million in 2,755 theaters, making it Foster's lowest-opening wide released movie since 1999's Anna and the King. Still, it held a respectable margin over the rest of the Top 10, which saw a number of tight races for a variety of spots, including 2nd place, which was very close between last week's #1, the Lionsgate Western 3:10 to Yuma and the New Line comedy Mr. Woodcock, starring Billy Bob Thornton and Sean William Scott.

Erica Bain (Jodie Foster) is a successful NYC radio host with a loving fiancé. But her world is shattered when she is brutally beaten and the love of her life is killed. When the police are unable to help her, Erica goes on a vigilante hunt on the city streets to track down and get revenge against the men who ruined her life.

I don't know about you ,but I think Jody Foster is really Hot!!! Sorry but the teenage part of me peaks out once in awhile!!!! even though I'm 40.

I have always thought Jodie Foster is a brilliant actress. We recently watched "Flight Plan" and that was quite evident.

Like Neil Jordan's films, generally - especially "The Crying Game", will probably wait for the dvd though since I'd rather have control over the intense scenes. Just me.

Isn't that roughly the plot of Kill Bill? Oh, if you haven't seen Superbad and kinda fancied it, you'd better get another opinion other than "it rocked my world".

Hi Steven, I've noticed the change you've done recently. I like what you have done but perhaps you want to change the spacing of your columns with percentages instead of set pixel widths. (optimize for all sizes of screens!) Let me know if you want a site to go to for this.

Also, great review on this movie! i thought it was too much like death sentence, so I didn't see it. Keep up the good work man!

jodi foster is okay, kindof predictable, she's always the "lone, independent female"
