"Part of what motivates Sam in this movie is the need to impress his new girlfriend Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), and while I think Megan Fox takes an unfair beating from people when they write about her, I'll be the first to admit the series does not miss her at all now that she's gone.
Huntington-Whiteley turns out to be a very winning on-screen personality, charming and sweet, and she seems well aware that Michael Bay is shooting her like a car in a car commercial. She definitely plays up the physical side of things, but I think she's going to appeal to women in a way that Fox never did.
She reminds me of Cameron Diaz in "The Mask
," an actress who doesn't really show off any range, but who gives a natural, winning performance and who is up to the challenge of this particular picture. There's a famous quote about Fred Astaire's most famous dance partner, "Don't forget, Ginger Rogers did everything Astaire did, but backwards and in heels," and I kept thinking of that during the Chicago sequence,
when Rosie has to keep up with the boys in some of the craziest action scenes of the year, and she manages to do so wearing the biggest high heels I can imagine. She makes it all seem easy, and I predict she's going to be cast in more films immediately once people get a look at how she handles herself here."
