Jennifer Beals: the doe-eyed brunette from Flashdance. Best line from breakthrough movie: "It sucks" when asked by her date how she liked her lobster. Was in a Frankenstein flick thereafter and then disappeared. Her bio indicates she was in Runaway Jury but I cannot for the life of me place her character. Things must be on the ropes because she is reportedly campaigning for an on-screen lip-lock with Sarah Michelle Geller, a candidate for an honorable mention as a Flash in the Pan Nineties Babe.

Her agent must have been terrible; after Flashdance she could have done anything. She had Sandra Bullock/Julia Roberts financial potential. But she decided to go to Yale and then was in that horrible Frankenstein movie with Sting (any film with Sting in it is a one way ticket to oblivion). From there straight to obscurity. Now she makes out with other women on cable. Sad.

Hey, don't knock The L Word till you've tried it -- when Jennifer's character got caught cheating on her pregnant girlfriend, I nearly grabbed the Kleenex meself (still secure in my manhood and my Maxim subscription...)

(on review) I suppose I shoulda qualified what I was doing with that Kleenex, huh?...

Isn't she the one that had the nose job and therefore no one could recognize her? Didn't she have that crappy sitcom It's Like, You Know? or am I thinking of someone else.

I think you are thinking of Jennifer Grey. Gray? From Dirty Dancing.

Yes, you are correct. I was getting my FITP BOTEs mixed up.
