I've only seen her in twilight, but I thought she was great in it! The only complaint I have is, of course, the hair.

It looks like there may be Oscar hopes for Anna:

Yeah I think in five years when they saga is over with, it's going to be Anna out there among the Oscar-caliber actresses. Up In The Air isn't in theaters here yet but I want to see it.

I watched Twilight again last night and was quite impressed with Anna's performance. She really brings out the mix of friendship, rivalry and jealousy that Jessica has for Bella. You can see just a glimpse of the Oscar nominee-to-be in her performance here. I haven't had a chance to see any of Anna's other work yet, but I have several of her films in my Netflix queue right now.

Anna Kendrick played a great Jessica. I actually couldn't think of any other actresses (upcoming or otherwise) that could have done a better job in twilight and New Moon.

Up in the air was a great movie.

Jestak is right... perfect emotions. You know she's there as a friend. But she's jealous of Bella... the way the guys treat her and all.

Hoping to see even better acting in Eclipse and BD !

Finally, someone else who has seen CAMP!! I thought I was the only one.

Back to the topic though, I loved Anna as Jessica. She has a great way of delivering lines with such conviction. For example- when they are discussing going to the movies with Tyler and Mike in New Moon, the way she says "Movie night with Bella." She pulls off the sarcasm so well.

I think Anna did AMAZING as Jessica. She made me like the character when she was so rotten in the books.
