This is just me, perhaps, but having just signed up for Netflix, I've been looking, however briefly, at films I'd never heard of before.and after awhile it dawned on me why I was closing so many out after a few minutes and moving on to the next one. It wasn't, I concluded, the script (story) or the physical acting, rather the way the lines were spoken. The talent in the "rejected" films were repeating words on a page NOT saying. them as people normally do in an unrehearsed conversation. I closed out one in particular and the next one starred Jennifer Anniston (sp). In the first one, the actor wasn't convincing because she was, I felt, repeating the words in the script, in the one with Jennifer, I felt she was actually talking and there wasn't a script!
