Ben Affleck finally does something right

After many years of poor decision-making, both professional and personal (*cough*J-Lo*cough), Ben Affleck finally seems to have done something worthy of his talent and skill, if this weekend’s box-office charts are anything to go by.

His new movie, The Town, debuted in the top spot ahead of high school comedy Easy A and M. Night Shyamalan‘s latest attempt at repairing his own damaged reputation, Devil.  I have to admit, when Affleck was talking about his movie the other night on Leno, it sounded pretty good to me, and I’m eager to see it.  It’s been a long, hard road back from Gigli for him, and I hope now that he’s got something good going on in his professional life he manages to hang onto it.
