Jayne Brook is Extraordinary
6 March 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Jayne Brook is undoubtedly is one of sexiest film and television actresses I have ever witnessed on the big or small screen. She evokes a sensual warmth, subtle sexual tension with leading men and casual, natural femininity that is comparable only to early Carol Lynley, very early Bette Davis or Lauren Bacall. I sometimes think Christa Miller of the "The Drew Carey Show" comes close to this type of magnetic screen presence but she doesn't do so consistently. For Ms. Brook, it is as if she was gifted by her parents some extraordinarily strong female pheromones, only 'pheromones for the eyes'.

She can dance. She can act. She makes her fellow performers shine. She has terrific comedic timing and a transparent honesty. I actually find it difficult to take my eyes off of her during her performance.

"My Mother, The Spy" is so-so. How pleasant to see Gloria Stuart in one of her final roles post-"Titanic". But the film is a good-for-the-time-being star vehicle for the radiant Ms. Brook. She is easily ready for the big time and, frankly, overdue. What a refreshing change she'd be from the inauthentic J-Lo's and Charlize's of the film world.

I'd like to see her stretch into a serious starring motion picture role. Maybe a Hollywood casting director might decide to avoid the mediocre and land this supremely talented cu-tie...

By the way, I thought Dyan Cannon did her usual excellent job, in this case, playing her mother. Even in 2000, Cannon continues to defy age comparisons as she looks so darn young!
