  • Chris Evans has raised his profile in recent years with his role as Captain America, appearing in stand-alone films (The First Avenger and The Winter Soldier) as well as part of the all-star superhero team in The Avengers and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. As Captain America, he’s the straight man, a sort of party-pooping fuddy-duddy amidst more flamboyant characters like Iron Man and The Hulk. Yet Evans, with his all-American good looks, possesses an easygoing charm that’s still to be exploited in lighter fare.

    Playing It Cool showcases his charisma, and his conviction in playing an unbeliever in love turned inside out by meeting the One elevates the otherwise slightly inspired but run-of-the-mill romantic comedy. Billed as the Narrator, Evans portrays a screenwriter assigned to pen a rom-com script. Problem is he doesn’t believe in love and whatever relationships he’s had are glorified booty calls that usually end up with him getting punched in the face.
