If you've watched the trailer for The Bounty Hunter, you won't be surprised that the critic reviews are brutal. After last year's The Ugly Truth and now this, let's hope Hollywood finally recognizes Gerard Butler is not the least bit suited for comedy.
"I stared with glazed eyes at The Bounty Hunter. Here is a film with no need to exist."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...confused and joyless..."
— Dezhda Gaubert, E!
"It's a formula for romantic comedy gold, but The Bounty Hunter screws it up with a miscalculated story, useless subplots, and lack of anything resembling romantic chemistry between Butler and Aniston."
— Jason Morgan, filmcritic.com
"...a hapless sucker..."
— A. O. Scott, New York Times
"...another Jennifer Aniston dud."
— Kyle Smith, New York Post Posted 03.19.10 by reelz
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. If you don't have that someone special to shop for, consider using those free funds to make a donation to Kids Kicking Cancer. You might just win yourself a dinner date with King Leonidas (aka Gerard Butler) in either Los Angeles or New York.
Butler has long supported this charity that trains children in the mind-body techniques found in karate and meditation as a way to cope with and fight cancer. Everyone who donates to Kids Kicking Cancer from now until February 13 is eligible to win the dinner or another one of the prizes Butler is offering, which include a set visit to one of his upcoming movies and reserved seating at a red carpet premiere. The contest is being held in conjunction with the fansite GerardButler.net, which has all the contest details.
This isn't Butler's only philanthropic endeavor. Hollywood Dailies' Steve Patterson caught up with him at the Artists for Peace and Justice Charity Art Auction, where he discussed his efforts to help children in Haiti.
Butler can next be seen with Jennifer Aniston in The Bounty Hunter and heard in the animated feature How to Train Your Dragon. Posted 02.04.10 by reelz
