Critic Review - New York Observer

Portman is herself partly to blame. Nobody with an upwardly mobile career who is suddenly being taken seriously should co-star in a movie with Ashton Kutcher.

Yep. If Kutcher is in a movie, you know its terrible. The guy sucks at choosing scripts.

This could end up being Kutcher's highest rated Tomatometer movie, not that 47% is all that hard to beat.

Amen to that!

Using that logic Jim Carey should've stuck with the Ace Ventura series and no one serious should've ever approached him for something like The Truman Show or Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind.

I'm just saying, you never know.

Jim Carrey is still a terrible actor, he just became self aware and decided to cash in on different types of films before his fifteen minutes were over. He's a con. He should have disappeared when we initially grew tired of him.

Let's hope that Ashton 'You just got Punk'd' Kutcher never realizes that doing the same thing is an option for him.

Your opinion of course, but I respectfully disagree. I thought his persona was a perfect fit for Truman and Sunshine.

Because people can't think for themselves. They just listen to critics and glue they're eyes on the tomatoe meter. Or they're gay fans of Rex.

But we don't love Ashton Kutcher. We hate him. He makes us see red. We'd be very happy if he died. He's a waste of flesh. He makes really bad movies. We were comfortable with him playing Kelso, but having him play leading roles is just uncalled for.

This movie is not that good. Obviously. In this movie, though, AK is really not that bad. He does a bad script enough justice to make the movie watchable.

Though I do agree, Reed, that this movie was slightly risky given Portman's latest Black Swan attention, I still think she's transferring to her ultimate destination. Natalie has recently announced her intentions of shaping the realm of 'female comedy' by directing movies like The Hangover but with a female lead. I think this movie and her upcoming "Your Highness" are almost a test to prove if she fits in the more raunchy, humorous genre. Regardless, I think it's fantastic that an actress can be soooo versatile. Not many people can deliver a convincing ballerina on the edge of sanity while playing a 20-something begging for sex or shooting arrows in a medieval scene haha

HAH! Wow...I guess RT doesn't provide you with the advice of keeping any comments to a short, useless jab so that the point of comments/forum is rendered useless...

I'll take note!
