Kids' pic is good showcase for up and coming stars
The movie itself is a pretty good children's fantasy involving a younger brother being turned into a pig, forcing elder sister, his pal, and nanny to go to Mexico to reverse the spell before the parents come home.But the real attractions are two female actors bound for greater things. Scarlett Johannson, seen in 'The Man Who Wasn't There' and 'Ghost World' gets to play an ordinary girl, but she really shines, creating an interesting character. The nanny is played by Eva Mendes, who was Denzel Washington's girlfriend in 'Training Day'. Here she dazzles as a screen personality, funny and vibrant, and surely destined for roles in bigger productions.
