Spread is a lame attempt at creating a sophisticated sex comedy. A sex comedy cannot be sophisticated; the jokes are fun because they are crass. Spread attempts to do something new – be a refined sex comedy. It ends up being dumb!
Starring Ashton Kutcher, Anne Heche and Margarita Levieva in the lead roles, Spread is written by Jason Dean Hall and directed by David Mackenzie. The film has the done-to-death story about a womanizer who can’t stick to one single woman but then eventually falls for someone who doesn’t even look at him twice. By the culmination, it doesn’t even matter if the dude gets the babe or not, you’ll be so bored that you won’t give two hoots. I’ll do you a favour by telling you right now that the dude doesn’t get the babe in Spread. There, I saved you the agony of sitting through an hour and half of boredom.
Performance-wise… Kutcher is Kutcher, sexy, confident and pretty annoying with his made-up throaty voice. He should be doing more roles like The Guardian, let new kids do films like Spread. The two actresses are pretty okay… Margarita Levieva is as sexy as her name.
I don’t have anything much to say. Spread is so tepid that I don’t even feel like cribbing about it.
