    The Guardian UK: Film Blog Review of Soul Surfer Trailer

    I think this is a pretty good, albeit humorous review of the film. They say that Carrie emotes well in her scene.

    Soul Surfer: something for everyone | Film | guardian.co.uk


    9) If you're still not convinced about Soul Surfer, don't forget that it contains a scene where a woman who once won American Idol hamfistedly emotes at an amputee in a vaguely religious way. Surely that's a dealbreaker, isn't it? Isn't it? Anyone? Honestly, you people are impossible to please sometimes.

    um i cant see how positive the word "hamfisted" can be. and being called just a former american idol winner isnt so hot, but i guess forgivable from the paper since its a uk paper and they dont know he well.

    I don't care about the American idol comment since maybe that is how they identify her in UK right now, since she hasn't bothered to tour there or even go there once, to promote herself. In some ways, you can't ,blame the UK if they don't know who she is.

    I didn't take the word hamfisted as negative, but maybe I was wrong? How did you interpret that, in the context of the article?

    I just had to look it up, especially since I have never heard of the word hamfisted before: Hamfisted | Define Hamfisted at Dictionary.com.

    Anyway, Carrie won Idol, and will always be connected to it. I don't mind seeing "Former American Idol Winner", because that's who she is, but the thing is that she is so much more than that now...she's more grown up, so I understand why some might not like seeing "Former American Idol Winner".

    Hamfisted is not a compliment.

    They probably haven't seen the film anyway.

    yeah I would say 'hamified' and 'emote' are not anywhere close to being compliments.

    Don't care what they may say still seeing the movie when it comes out.

    Yeah, it seems like they were judging by watching the trailer...especially since they used screencaps from the trailer...

    i thought the whole article was lightly mocking the movie and i took Carrie's comment right in that regard.

    Ok then you guys are right. I thought he was being kind of sarcastic but not negative, but I guess I was wrong. I really didn't know what hamfisted meant. lol

    I'm thinking that the writer, as did a lot of watchers of Idol, thought she needed to be more outgoing, move a little, whatever.. when she was on Idol and Just Look At Her Now!!!!! My story and I'm sticking to it
