Idle Hands (1999): Jessica Alba


     By all fiscal accounts, Idle Hands (1999) was a devastating flop, with box office earnings equaling less than 1/5 of the production costs. Though it is of little help or consolation to Columbia Pictures now, the film has developed a Cult following amongst aficionados of bad movies and camp thematics. The real magnetic force of Idle Hands is the ravishing Jessica Alba. She certainly does possess and undeniable charm. Every scene Jessica Alba is in is the high point of an otherwise bland and easily dismissed film. 
     Anton (Devon Sawa) is a lazy slacker who does nothing but get stoned. As punishment, an evil force takes over his right hand and starts killing people. He has no control over it...
