Movie: Psycho Beach Party (2000)

Presently, Amy Adams is one of Hollywood’s most in-demand and consistently acclaimed actresses, bouncing around from awards-ready projects (director Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming The Master) to enjoyably lighter fare (The Muppets) and blockbusters (next year’s Superman reboot Man Of Steel). But that hasn’t always been the case. Prior to landing a role in Steven Spielberg’s 2002 success Catch Me If You Can, Adams starred in such overlooked movies as Cruel Intentions 2 (a straight-to-DVD release that was ignored for good reason) and Drop Dead Gorgeous (far better). And, most importantly, she donned a two-piece pink bikini while evading a serial killer in the horror-comedy Psycho Beach Party. Hey, she’s certainly versatile.
