Pony Party: Radical Vixen

From Sunday’s NYT:

In 2005 Ms. Fonda resumed her movie career with “Monster-in-Law,” in which, starring with Jennifer Lopez, she played with great relish a nightmare version of Jane Fonda: a TV star who has burned through four husbands, gone bonkers and can’t accept that she’s getting old. It was slammed by the critics but was nevertheless a popular success and introduced her to a new generation of fans.

“That movie was the single smartest move I ever made,” she says now.
