I'm sorry (and I don't mean to be rude), but with so many talented, beautiful, undiscovered actresses out there, how in the world does Amy Smart keep landing roles? Her casting in a film reminds me of a baseball trade, where one or two good players will be traded, along with some useless minor league player. Yup, Amy Smart is that minor league player. She's familiar filler, and brings absolutely nothing to the table. Rarely do I go off on an actor like this (face it, what do I do -- I blog for a living), but this girl just gets to me. And I sincerely hope I'm not the only one who realizes this. End rant.

With that said, Smart has been cast opposite Patrick Wilson in the indie drama Life in Flight, written by Tracy Hecht (who will also be making her directorial debut on the film). Pic revolves around an architect (Wilson), his "perfect" wife (Smart) and their cute little son. However, and here's where the plot description gets real lame, "an unexpected meeting with an urban designer (Lynn Collins) reveals the weak foundation upon which his life is built and forces him to reassess his life." See, he's an architect and, well, I'm sure you get the connection.

It will be interesting to see Smart upgrade from girlfriend to wife status, and Wilson seems to be tapping into a little bit of Little Children (talk about another boring performance) with this role, so should I assume this film will put us to sleep within -- say-- the first ten minutes?
