Some actors never phone it in. It can be the most thankless role in the worst movie ever made and it just doesn't matter. You want the A-game? You're gonna get the A-game. And for as long as Hollywood has been making movies, a bunch of talented actors have ended up being wasted in the unenviable role of "love interest" in dumb comedies. That's kind of just the way it goes.
Think about Patricia Arquette being in Little Nicky or Amy Adams showing up in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. Remember that Brie Larson, years before Room and Captain Marvel, was Jonah Hill's romantic interest in 21 Jump Street? And honestly, what the absolute heck was Natalie freaking Portman doing in Your Highness? These are some of the most overqualified actors to take on love interest roles in stupid comedy flicks.
