A Remark on a Movie Review

Something caught my eye in Saturday's Inquirer. Dave Hiltbrand's review of "the Box," ("Press button, make movie die"), ends with this sentence:

[Cameron] Diaz and [james] Marsden don't make a very convincing couple, either. Though they're roughly the same age, his boyish face makes him look like he could be her little brother.

If they didn't have good on screen chemistry, that's one thing, but if we're going to start critiquing movies because one romantic lead looks old enough to be the other's older sibling, well, I have a long list movies to complain about. Goose. Gander. All that.
