    Meh. She had some comedy chops but I felt her character lacked (because Liza lacks) a believable bit of tenderness. When she kissed the butler on the cheek, it just came across as forced and silly.

    I know a lot of people feel this way, but I think the fact that she seemed like an improbable choice may have been the point of casting her--to have someone that was not necessarily an obvious choice, and a little quirky/offbeat. It mirrors her character's situation. We may not understand what Arthur sees in her character because on the surface it seems all wrong. But he is so taken with her that we know there is something there, and they somehow make it work. I kind of liked the chemistry between them.
