Fugleelee Sobieski

We all loved that puppet-show scene in The Sound of Music. We all know about the poor lonely goatherd and his lusty yodeling, and the girl and her mama with the gleaming gloat, or coat, or whatever the hell the lyrics were. Basically, we all just liked watching the cute beer-swilling ones and those precious little big-eyed goats, and if you didn't think the goatboy and his girlfriend were cute then you have a heart made of tarred stone, and you really can't go wrong with Julie Andrews. At all.

(Unless we're talking about The Princess Diaries 2, in which case, don't watch it -- you will feel so depressed at how much that debacle disgraces her, although there is something fun about imagining her and Hector Elizondo doing shots in their trailers and bemoaning the bad old good old days when they were both in actual good movies, and wondering drunkenly whether they can bribe Garry Marshall into letting them burn the master print.)

But: back to the goatherd. Leelee Sobieski is apparently looking for him.

Her acting is as wooden as if she were a marionette herself, and certainly she could benefit from having La Andrews pull her strings. But generally speaking, Leelee Sobieski is not a maiden on a Swiss hilltop, and as far as I can tell, she's not milking anything except perhaps the ticking clock of her notoriety. So the whole The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Half-Pint motif she's got going here really might be better left inside her closet.
