Unlikely Movie Scientists

Will Denise Richards never get the credit she deserves for her Oscar-worthy turn as a nuclear scientist in The World is Not Enough? Obviously not, if this list is any indication.

Admittedly it's been a long time since I read an FF comic book and I've not seen either movie. But, as best I remember, Sue Storm/Richards was never a scientist. The rest of the list I won't argue.

I thought Denise just oozed authenticity in that role. She can massage my data any time.

At last, someone who agrees with me.

Brian Raftery's a pretty funny writer.

Denise proves she's a scientist by pronouncing the word "nu-cu-ler."

Bill Crider said...

She's an admirer of Our Great President.

I'm rather upset that they included Dr. Bunsen Honeydew instead of Lois Chiles's amazing (in more ways than two) portray of scientist/astronaut/CIA agent Dr. Holly Goodhead in Moonraker.

Yes, that was indeed amazing. Lois Chiles, by the way, lives in Houston now.
