"Proof" Goes Poof

This is one of those movies where you enjoy watching it, but about 20 minutes after it ends, you barely remember it. Gwyneth Paltrow pulls off the role of the bereaved, brilliant daughter of a brilliant mathematician, played by Anthony Hopkins (lots of smart people in this movie). The best scenes were those she played with Sir Anthony, who appears in flashback in a small supporting role. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Gwyneth's love interest, but I will always see him as Donnie Darko. Even though the flick is somewhat forgettable, I still recommend it because of the writing and the scenes with Hopkins.
