Film: "Sleepy Hollow"
Character: Katrina Van Tassel
Year: 1999

Christina Ricci is an acquired taste. She really isn't a very good actor, but I've grown up with her. I can remember her cute face in "Mermaids" and her odd coming-of-age in films like "Casper", and "Now and Then". That is why it hurts me to say this. Ricci is completely wrong for this film. She's totally unsure of herself. She made me feel uncomfortable (and I'm pretty sure that is not how Burton intended to get that reaction from the audience). What's more... Ricci as the love interest for much older Depp is awkward to say the least. Bottom line: I don't buy it.
