Lucy, you got some 'splainin' to do

So, what the fuck has happened to Lucy Liu’s career? I mean it. What’s up? She is talented. She is beautiful. You could slice deli meat on her cheekbones. But her appearance in “Code Name: The Cleaner” alongside Cedric the Entertainer and Nicollette Sheridan raises significant concern. As does the film’s release date the first weekend in January, the weekend bad movies go to die a quick, silent death. Looking at Lucy’s resume, we see an equally disturbing trend. In fact, she hasn’t made a good film since 2003’s “Kill Bill.” Now, this could be due to the lack of quality roles for Asian-American actresses . Or it could be due to a series of bad script choices. Whatever the reason, I say it’s time for some serious career resuscitation. Someone with freckles like this can’t continue to make schlock like this.

no good movies since 2003? did you see Lucky Number Slevin (2006)? that's a terrific movie. 3 Needles (2006/2007) is damn promising as well with a good and important message. she's just going indie, that's all.
I haven't seen code name: the cleaner but I have to say it doesn't look good.

she's been getting involved in producing movies rather can acting in them now, too.

I think you got some readin' to do.
