I say this with ease: I 100% understand why Dennis and his pals were going loco over Leigh and blowing off Roseanne. ‘Matter of fact, I don’t blame them! Now perhaps if Roseanne was the new girl herself and not such an easy tease, then Dennis would almost certainly be all over her. (And who says Dennis didn’t already get his chance with Roseanne? He probably did.)
But here’s the thing: Leigh WAS sexy and out of Dennis’ league. How so? Well for one thing, Leigh was a smart gal. And although her “nerdy” clothes were unflattering, as far as Dennis and his friends were concerned she had a great body - the viewer can't tell but still - and I imagine showing very little of herself only made her that much more irresistible. ;) Furthermore, apart from having a great physique and brains, in my eyes Alexandra Paul in Christine (and arguably in general) did have the more striking features between her and Preston. I mean, those eyes and lips - perfect! And not for nothing but... she’s a tall girl and there is just something very hot about that. Know what I mean? ;}
Roseanne was pure temptation alright, albeit girls like her were not a dime dozen for Dennis. Leigh? She was something new and fresh to Dennis and his bonehead friends. Don’t get me wrong, Kelly Preston is as hot as it gets! Though I may find Alexandra to be a bit more unique looking, I do think Kelly is ultimately sexier. I first saw Kelly in Twins and in that movie she was just... damn; definitely more jaw dropping than Alexandra was in Christine. At any event, Alexandra Paul was and is by all means a gorgeous woman.
