I was first introduced to the comedic likes of Seyfried in Mark WatersMean Girls (2004) as the lovable Karen, the simple-minded teenager with an “innate” sense that it’s raining. In a film that featured the talents of Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams, and what was left of Lindsay Lohan, Seyfried is a memorable cause. Seyfried followed her role with a small part in Rodrigo Garcia’s Nine Lives and a few other notable TV appearances and small films. Her first starring role would come in the critically pulverized Mamma Mia! (2008) opposite Academy Award Winner Meryl Streep. She would follow-up with roles in Chloe (2009), Dear John (2010), Letters to Juliet (2010), and Red Riding Hood (2011). All her films received either mixed-to-negative reviews or were ultimately forgettable. In the role of Cosette in Hooper’s film, Seyfried exemplifies a beautiful singing voice once again in a role that some feel may have been either underdeveloped or misguided. »
