The daughter-in-law of an alcoholic rancher (who blames her for the accidental death of his son) who comes home to escape an abusive relationship.
Visually dazzling for its time and undeniably charming, Lopez voices the kind female ant that makes this animation all the more endearing.
Literary references aside, there's a reason Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were an item...maybe not their chemistry in this film...never-mind, ignore this one.
Elmore Leonard has a proclivity for writing really cool characters and really immersive dialogue. Karen Sisco is no exception; her character is cool and her dialogue...well the "What If? scene is one of the most expertly executed interactions in romantic history.
Lopez plays Alex Gate's (Jack Nicholson) mistress and a dark comedy that's worth a watch.
In a stylish Oliver Stone film (lacking the depth of some of his greater works), JLo effectively portrays a very confused daughter (who has married her dad...).
It's almost as if JLo was born to play this role; one of the most celebrated Mexican-American musicians of all time.
