- Jenna Ortega’s latest film, Miller’s Girl, scored a disappointing 25% on Rotten Tomatoes.
- Ortega’s career showcases her ability to rebound from underwhelming projects.
- Upcoming projects with Tim Burton and roles in a dark comedy and a teen drama offer chances to demonstrate her acting range.
Miller’s Girl, featuring Jenna Ortega and the versatile Martin Freeman, recently made its debut to a series of lackluster reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. While it seemed the film would be a hit with writer and director Jade Halley Bartlett, as well as the support of highly respected producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, it ended up underperforming with a 25% preliminary rating.
Despite Miller’s Girl’s low rating, it’s important to remember that Ortega has had her shares of highs and lows throughout her career, exemplifying her ability to bounce back. With these patterns in mind, her future projects could potentially achieve greater success than her most recent film. In the meantime, Ortega is set to work with Tim Burton on the highly anticipated Beetlejuice 2, as well as Paul Rudd in the dark comedy Death of a Unicorn, and a heartfelt teen drama Winter Spring Summer or Fall. These opportunities give her room to display her talent and versatility as an actress.
Though Miller’s Girl hasn’t garnered the critical or commercial success hoped for, Ortega’s resilience and upcoming projects hint at a swift return to the spotlight. Furthermore, the continuation of her highly acclaimed Netflix series Wednesday, which scored an impressive 72% in its debut season, serves as a testament to her lasting appeal and talent. All eyes are on Ortega, expecting her to not only recover from this setback but to continue thriving in the entertainment industry.
