Maria Full of Grace

[Amazon Link] [2.0 stars] [IMDb Link]

This movie follows a young woman as she goes from working in a flower factory in a small Columbian town to working as a drug mule, transporting heroin in her gut to New York City. It has earned High Critical Praise (a 97% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes). And the actress playing Maria, Catalina Sandino Moreno, won an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

But your Uncle Pun will tell you the straight scoop: This movie is boring. As near as I can tell, Ms. Moreno's primary talent is that she's extremely pretty. Sorry; this is one of those movies one is Supposed To Like, but I couldn't.

To be fair, I nodded off once or twice during the movie, so I may have missed some redeeming scenes.
