Yes, even given trailers are the worst thing about most movies (and all you need of a film like this, most likely), if "Stuart Heritage" has never seen anything more offensive than this, I envy his life, if not his experience of the world...but, yes, there's a high ratio of flakes among the cast of award-winners, and clearly Zellweger's role was meant for Gwyneth Paltrow, but the nasal drawl was beyond the latter's ability. But, yeah. Smuglift (tm) at its finest.
