Brendan Frazer ?
Ashton Kutcher ?
Matthew Perry ?


No way he's great! If you haven't seen Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, go watch it and that'll change your mind about him. If you have already seen it, there's nothing I can do


To be fair, Hozay didn't say anything bad about Perry. The question is- has he ever been in a good film?

And the answer is Numb (2007).

He was also in The Whole Nine Yards. (it is a good fun flick. It is. The sequel sucks, though) and A Night In The Life Of Jimmy Reardon which some people liked but I've never seen.


Haven't seen Numb and didn't like Nine Yards ( hard to watch without constantly thinking "what's wrong with Bruce Willis, is it Botox, the make-up, is he tripping", he didn't look right ).

Kutcher was OK in Blast From The Past I guess but I can't say it's a Good Movie and I can't stand The Mummy films ( has the guy who played the Mummy been in anything decent? Another candidate ? ).

Sounds like Perry has been in a few popular flicks that I haven't seen so I'll reserve judgement on him for now, until I see a few more of his films.

We are not looking for 'perfect' films, just 'good' ones. Films that are considered to be good can still have a few flaws. Downey has been in a lot of films that fit that criteria

I'm the opposite. I think he's a bit of a douche, but I like a lot of his films (especially Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Zodiac).

I think you may be confusing Ashton Kutcher with Brendan Fraser.

Taylor Lautner, R-Patz, Ashton Kutcher all seem to fit this bill.

Brendan Frazer? Come on! For The Mummy alone he is great!

I love Brendan Frazer!

I thought he was hilarious in the Bedazzled remake! His South American drug lord had me in stiches!

Also, 'that Mummy guy' did star in a film of note in my opinion, Hard Target which is a fucking awesome film!

This Dudley Do-Right is funny as fuck too - though Alfred Molina slightly steals the show as the hilariously crap baddy.
