Beginning her career in the early '80s, Jennifer Tilly appeared as a regular on the now-you-see-it-now-you-don't 1984 sitcom Shaping Up. Many of her earlier films were on par with the 1985 Police Academy clone Moving Violations. Tilly enjoyed a career breakthrough when she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway (1994), which cast her as the vacuous, staggeringly untalented girlfriend of a mobster. The actress subsequently appeared in films of widely divergent quality, most notably the Wachowski brothers' Bound (1996), a stylish post-noir thriller that cast Tilly as the bisexual girlfriend of a bottom-dwelling criminal. Whatever the quality of her films, Tilly can claim to have worked steadily in Hollywood, and she has earned a dedicated number of followers for her work in such cult films as Bride of Chucky, which cast her as the spouse of a demonic children's toy. The younger sister of Meg Tilly, Jennifer was her sister's body double in 1993's Body Snatchers.

Lenny von Dohlen, who co-starred with Jennifer in Bird of Prey (1995) and her sister Meg Tilly in Leaving Normal (1992), said, "They have a fountain of emotion that keeps coming, even after someone yells cut, but the fountain comes from different bodies of water," he adds.
