Everyone’s Favorite Funny Lady – Reliving Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Top Moments

enoughsaid To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Enough Said on January 14th, let’s look at some top screen moments from the film’s leading lady, Julia Louis- Dreyfus. Julia’s resume means serious business with star performances in shows such as Seinfeld, Veep and Saturday Night Live. Believe it or not, her screen debut was given by comedy master Woody Allen in the 1986 hit feature Hannah and her Sisters. Working with the great writer/director clearly had a positive effect on her future career playing comedic roles.  Here are a few of our favourites:

Elaine Benes – Seinfeld

Elaine Benes—old flame and now good friend of Jerry—is possibly Julia’s most famous role.

Favorite moment: Elaine’s nickname becomes “Nip”, after she accidentally shows a nipple on a Christmas card, created by Kramer. Mortified at first, Elaine later crops the wardrobe malfunction off of the photograph and uses it for her health club ID. How resourceful!

Leslie – Deconstructing Harry

Deconstructing Harry marks Julia’s second time working with writer-director, Woody Allen. Allen plays a writer, and Julia brings to life one of the fictional characters from his work.

Favorite moment: Julia’s character and another of Harry’s fictional characters are caught in an intimate moment by a blind woman who enters the room unexpectedly. Hilarity ensues when the couple continue to misbehave while the blind women obliviously engages them in conversation.

Maggie Lizer – Arrested Development

Maggie Lizer, or Maggie “lies her ass off,” is an Orange County attorney and brief love interest of the show’s main character Michael Bluth. Lizer manages to give lawyers an even worse reputation, as she uses every trick in the book to gain sympathy from the judge and juries on her case.

Favorite moment: Being led to believe that she is blind, we later find out that Lizer has only been pretending to not be able to see to help her cheat on her bar exam—and get free pizza.

Selina Meyer- Veep

With grand ambitions and passions like passions environmental conservation, job creation and Senate reform, Meyer is a politician we want to root for. If only it wasn’t for her incompetent staff and political red tape waiting to thwart even her most humble ambitions…

Favorite moment: Selena suddenly comes down with a stomach virus during a photo op at a local frozen yogurt shop. Her intestinal troubles cause a hasty retreat back to the limo, proving even the Vice President isn’t immune to an embarrassing moment.

Eva – Enough Said

As divorced single parent Eva, we get to see Julia in a role that not only displays the comedic chops that we know and love, but also the softer, more dramatic side of her acting range. Eva’s courtship with fellow divorcée Albert (James Gandolfini) is a modern love story, full of nuances, real moments and—of course—more than a few laughs.

Favorite moment: Awkward! Eva overhears her new best friend talking on the phone with her ex-husband—who also happens to be Eva’s new boyfriend.

    Actually Seinfeld for me. I only started watching it when it was in reruns. I find that I can watch the same show over and over again, and still laugh…even though I know what is coming. That’s good writing to me.
