The Butterfly Effect carries no effect at all

Butterfly_Effect.jpgThe Reviews for The Butterfly Effect are in√¢‚Ǩ¬¶ and while they aren’t the worst I’ve seen, they’re still not pretty. I’ve been saying this for a long time: “Ashton Kutcher is not a legitimate Hollywood leading man”. I will never understand for the life of me why he gets so much media attention when he clearly can not carry a film. To date his biggest accomplishment in the entertainment world is dating Demi Moore. Hats off to him, I wish I was in his shoes!

Here’s a rundown of what the critics are saying via Yahoo Movies:
