New Yorker liked Zack & Miri, the characters more than the movie:

"Banks had a brief role as a girl ready for anything in "The 40 Year Old Virgin," and, as Laura Welch in Oliver Stone's "W.," she takes a shrewd, appraising look at Josh Brolin's George Bush - it's the film's best scene. This actress - reedlike, mobile, but always focused - has a real sexual spark and so beguiling a smile that she can say obscene things and still seem fresh, and even classy." 

The New Yorker's David Denby sums me up. "Even classy" - classic! 

My mom and mother-in-law make me toot my own horn.
