Rihanna in “Battleship”
Rihanna in “Battleship” RiRi had a highly promoted supporting role in last year’s sci-fi/military bomb, playing a Navy gal, of all things. It was hard to judge her acting chops, because she was not entrusted with a lot of dialogue to work with, at least in the final edit, even though she was on screen a lot. Vulture.com ran a piece transcribing all 318 words of dialogue she had in the movie; Rihanna only had five lines of dialogue that were longer than nine words. “The Barbadian singer is wet for much of Battleship, her Navy uniform is uncommonly flattering, and the majority of her dialogue is composed of exclamations,” noted the site. “It's a veritable master class in one-line utterances. Most of her lines fall into one of several categories: sassy (‘Get up, princess!’), confused (‘What the hell is that?’), or surprisingly competent (‘Contact two miles out’).” Please don’t stop the mortar!
