This belated prequel to the beloved, fleet-footed classic may feature a cameo from original star Patrick Swayze, but it was criticised for being a connect-the-dots follow-up that basically recycled all the best bits from the original film.
Still, it was a chance for Jones to slip into some period costumes – something that no doubt helped her in the Mad Men auditions. She plays Eve, the wealthy, quietly racist daughter of a wealthy Cuban businessman. It’s a classier, bitchier reprise of her Sorority role.
Dumb Blonde? Eve knows exactly what she’s doing, and is as cunny as she is catty.
