Ashton Kutcher is a money sucking blackhole

Ashton Kutcher is not a good actor. He’s a fairly good model on occasion but he’s about as good at acting as Jessica Simpson is at self-control. Meanwhile, Katherine Heigl is a total bitch that no one likes. Which is why I just nodded my head unsympathetically when Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said Killers, starring Ashton and Katherine, was the major reason for their horrible first quarter. This in spite of its enormous marketing budget.

Lionsgate said on Monday that it lost $64.1 million during its fiscal 2011 first quarter, with overall revenue driven down, in part, by a declines in home entertainment revenues — a result of producing fewer theatrical films last year — and higher marketing costs to promote three wide releases.

The studio also attributed the rough quarter to the “underperformance” of “Killers” starring Ashton Kutcher. (The Wrap)

The lesson learned is if studios ever put Ashton Kutcher or Katherine Heigl in a leading role again, they might as well slap M. Night Shyamalan’s name on the credits so there will be no mistake that they’re attempting career suicide.

It’s Lionsgate’s fault, not Ashton Kutcher or Heigl. Have some fucking foresight.

I could have guessed this would bomb and I’m a fucking moron.

Who would want to see these two in a movie? He was barely tolerable on That 70’s Show.

I can see the movie failing because of those two. She has the personality of a wet rag, probably, because she is a rag. Ashton should just stick with his old lady, and call it a day. Enough said.

I don’t know her from Adam, have never seen her on TV or in a movie, but I basically like Kutcher, saw him in Personal Effects and thought it was dark but he was decent in it, like his looks and demeanor, liked the 70’s show when I saw it, never saw Punked, but what’s with this where everyone dislikes the two, almost makes people feel kindly toward them. You are creating fans who think these two deserve more kindness than they are getting.

Ashton Kutcher has no talent. Most of the projects he’s been on were poorly received and/or lose money. When a film makes a profit, it’s usually because of his costars (i.e. Valentine’s Day), not him. He was famously fired from a movie when the director suggested he take acting lessons. The reason people don’t like him is because he’s just a pretty face — he’s never punished for doing bad work and that’s unfair. Plus, he’s arrogant, hypocritical, and disrespectful.
