The Best and Worst of Angelina Jolie


When it comes to female action stars, Angelina Jolie has cornered the market. As a rogue CIA agent in Salt , she's hotness incarnate and a box-office force of nature. And Jolie delivers the same kick-ass goods in Wanted, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and the performance-captured Beowolf. Jolie is also the gamer's sex symbol of choice as British adventuress Lara Croft, but her two Tomb Raider movies are too brain-numbingly dull to ever consider watching again.

Peter Travers picks the season's can't-miss films and the ones with a bad vibe in his summer movie preview.

I'd rather watch Jolie act. You heard me. She can act. She can also drop the ball (see below). Which brings us to the best and worst of Jolie on screen. I'd like to hear your picks. But first, click here to see my choices for the prime of Angie.
