Much of Garner's 'Catch' plot deserves release

She hasn't quite reached the Sandra Bullock-Meg Ryan level where movie roles are concerned, but when producers hire Jennifer Garner, it's a clue that they know just what they're looking for.

That's absolutely nothing against the former star of television's “Alias,” since her winning personality is key to elevating a project like “13 Going on 30.” It's also a saving grace in the case of a picture like her latest, “Catch and Release,” which has so many plot complications that anyone less than a thoroughly appealing leading lady might translate into a complete disaster.

“Catch and Release” isn't quite that, but writer-director Susannah Grant -- a veteran of the series “thirtysomething” who also did the script for “Erin Brockovich” -- overloads her newest heroine with tragedies and surprises to the point of a viewer's near-disbelief. Garner is so game, though, anyone who enjoys her work is likely to hang with the story all the way to the final improbable twist.
