Cheat (1996)

The existence of this Guess commercial suggests the '90s were not a complete bust.

"Cheat", not standing a chance against the ever intoxicating looks of a seductive girl (Juliette Lewis), the cheater (Peter Horton) falls deep into a trap set by a cunning P.I. (Harry Dean Stanton) and his wife (Traci Lords).

Juliette Lewis was never going to win any awards for pulchritude in my books, but she is agreeably pleasant in that ad.

Also, I'm glad it won an award; writers, directors, talent all deserve to be rewarded. It's about ten times as entertaining as the last movie I saw in the theatre.

I agree Lewis isn't as conventionally beautiful as any of (far less interesting) actresses we could mention. But she has that strange blankness in her expression that is for some reason so compelling.
