Who would have guessed four years ago that Alias would be one of televsion’s most watched shows and that Jennifer Garner would be dating Ben Affleck? Hmmm. Well, fast forward a couple of years. Alias is a hit, Jennifer Garner is a star and she gets her first big screen movie role – in Daredevil. Yes, Daredevil was before 13 Going On 30, which was the bigger hit of the two. We all know Ben is a has Ben. And that Elektra is a sequel of sorts to Daredevil, sans Affleck. But that doesn’t explain why there is still a Jen and Ben. Rumors abound that Ben is gay. Who cares? I say. But, let’s be serious. 20th Century Fox scheduled a junket for Elektra in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago and canceled it, because Jennifer Garner had ‘the flu.’ OK. Why is it that every time Ben Affleck has a Jen at his side that some publicity machine turns into full spin? I couldn’t care less about his love life, be it with a man, woman or chimp, and any publicist who thinks pairing him with J. Lo, J. Ho or J. Blo is going to help his box office career is delusional. As I sat through the press screening of Elektra, my straight friend Tom said, “I wouldn’t have miss this boner movie for the world.” That pretty much sums it up. If you’re a straight, college boy, straight man or dirty old man, you will love Elektra. I mean, what’s wrong with a beautiful tough girl, be it Elektra or Alias? The movie is not a masterpiece and will not be nominated for any Academy Awards in 2006. But, trust me, it’s worth your $10 if all you are looking for is a slam, bam, thank you ma’am movie.
