POLL: Is Jennifer Coolidge the Cilantro of Acting?

I saw someone on Reddit compare Jennifer Coolidge to cilantro, saying she’s a strong spice that works well in some places but has started to crop up where she doesn’t reasonably belong simply because her popularity is beginning to overshadow her substance, not unlike cilantro a few decades ago.

She did White Lotus, then The Watcher, and now she’s set to join Only Murders in the Building - no doubt playing another dingbat millionaire with a lovable edge.

Some people do not like the taste of cilantro.

She grew up in my hometown, Norwell, MA

I absolutely hate her in commercials

Love her

She's basically always the same character, but it works for her in the roles she plays. I like her. To me, she was the best thing in Legally Blonde, after peak Luke Wilson.

I don’t see her that much. It’s not like she’s everywhere.

She peaked in "White Lotus". All her tics and idiosyncrasies came to an apex.

Op, i haven't read any article saying she's joining Only murder. Any link?

She stole some of Alice Ghostley’s schtick.

Nothing wrong with that, R9.

Cilantro is not a spice. It’s an herb.

She hasn’t been announced as joining Only Murders. Molly Shannon has been.

Talentless actress with zero range. Plays the same part very time.

Ina Garten hates cilantro.

She has zero range, plays everything exactiy the same way. But she was highly effective in The White Lotus.

She was great on Major Crimes or the Closer

Agree. I listen to Pandora and they repeat the same Discover card advertising every few songs. Never heard of her before that.

she is truly the MISS PIGGY of acting

by Anonymousreply 20May 12, 2024 5:51 PM

I think they can stop giving her awards now. Ditto The White Lotus.

by Anonymousreply 21May 13, 2024 2:35 AM

I think she's fucking awful, and I'm so tired of her bullshit that when I see she's in something, I skip it.

by Anonymousreply 22May 13, 2024 2:37 AM

I enjoy her, especially in the Christopher Guest movies.

It just occurred to me that Guest's wife, the humble actor Jamie Lee Curtis, does not appear in his films. They don't really seem to like one another.

Sorry, sidetracked. And easily amused by fictional charming dingbats.

Amy Schumer is the definitive Miss Piggy.
