I don’t like him anymore. He sold out..big time!
plus, he’s a conceited bafoon, sorry.

# 2

JJ
Where are Adam Lamber’s Details naked girl pictures???

# 3

agree with #1 – what a loser! Shame coz I did like him, now a real sellout. Yuck

# 4

Does anyone have a link for Canadians to watch? I tried the NBC website but the clip is unavailable up here.

# 5

SNL sucks as usual, but GB was good in what they gave him to do. And, he can still sing. Love him.

# 6

I’m sure the fan sites have the clips up by now: http://www.gerardbutler.net
perhaps those would play for you Canada123.
IMO some of his skits were without the benefit of any writing talent at all.
I did get good laughs out of some of it…Gay Spartans and weekend update were cute.

# 7

SNL is over!

# 8

I thought that Gerard did a good job with what he was given. SNL just isn’t the same as it used to be. There really isn’t any real writing or comedic talent there anymore, which is a shame. That said, Gerard needs a big, good movie STAT or he is going to find himself on the D-list very quickly. He has some talent, but isn’t using it to the best of his ability.

Gerard was fine. The writing for SNL? Not so much. I thought Greg the Alien was funny. When Gerard grabs Greg’s alien tail and then starts caressing and describing how the tail feels…LOL…

I do not feel Gerard “sold out”. He gets to add SNL to his resume. He got to try his hand at something different from what he generally does. Ger lives in New York so it was something for him to do and stretch himself as an actor/performer; he definitely had to come out of his comfort zone. Besides, many actors are finding that television can be pretty lucrative in it’s own right.

If only some people could find it in themselves to not want to see Gerard fail so badly…

I can’t find the video for the openning monologue where GB sings Music of the Night. Does anyone have the link to it?

He was good! I’m surprised.

GB was really good.

He was awesome! Loved the Beast skit.

G did a good job on SNL. He appears to have lost some weight and he looks really good. He has really cleaned up his life and seems to be much more likable.

I thought he was great. His skits were the first ones I have laughed at on SNL for quite a while. They need some new writers ASAP.

GB was great – really enjoyed his performances – his singing – he is a great talent and a beautiful man… I think if you check the numbers he has a hit with LAC – the audience is loving it and giving it an average 14 grade with 10 being the best. You can check the audiences reaction on You Tube. Everyone they interviewed said Butler made the movie . So don’t worry about GB going on the D list anytime soon. Also, TUT has made over 170 million so far. Not too shabby…

Daveheart. F_cking priceless! Congrats on your movie’s success. Now if you could stop being such a *****.

Butlerfan-it’s not about how much money his movies make, it’s about the fact that this man is 40 years old and is more concerned with going out to a different club every night and hooking up with anything with a pulse, rather than putting any actual time, effort and heart into any of his roles. He needs to look at actors like Johnny Depp and Sean Penn and think about how he really wants to portray himself-as an actor or as a middle-aged man clinging to any “celebrity” he can get.

He can barely keep his d*ck in his pants long enough to crank out a crappy romantic comedy with any starlet with an ounce of celebrity status left in her.

The fangirls will sustain him long enough to keep him in the spotlight for another movie or two, but he is going to have to muster up some heart and soul if he wants to be taken seriously by people that are actually able to recognize the difference between good cinema and complete garbage.

What the heck do you mean ‘he sold out.”? By doing a couple of comedy skits on SNL? Get real.

He certainly proved he can sing. I’d love to see him in another musical. Even with all the ‘fighting off the baddies” stuff, his voice was great in the opening Music of the Night.

Well, I haven’t watched SNL in years and now I won’t have to again. Gerry was the only good thing going on that show last night. The writers are just awful.

Hey, LAC #2 at the weekend box office and getting rave reviews in exit polls. Good weekend for the man.

@K.C.:
I think he was great at snl, best of the season so far, definitely.
He’s a very talented and charismatic actor, he just needs to choose his roles better. Doing rom coms with Jennifer bloody Aniston is so beyond lame.
He’s much better than that. He needs to quiet down for a bit, for sure. You know, if he wants to go around living the ultimate bachelor’s life that’s fine with me, he just needs a bit more finesse. Should take lessons with George Clooney.

SNL should have given Gerry better material. I could have come up
with better skits for him. They should not have done all three big kits…Beauty, Braveheart and 300. Too costumy and cheesy. One would have sufficed. I didn’t like all the bad language they had him use. Not because I am a prude its because it was overkill and playing to the lowest common denominator. *ss, *enis, and *nus in one night? Give me a break.

I wish they would have given Gerry good material like they did for Jon Hamm….oh well.

cubedweller @ 10/18/2009 at 2:04 pm

I haven’t watched SNL in ages and the writing is lame and lousy, but I thought Butler was terrific. Loved the opening number – singing and fighting all at once? Brilliant send-up of himself. The Beauty and the Beast sketch was very funny – and his singing was lovely. I laughed out loud at the Daveheart bit. He fit everything into this show; singing, dancing, at least 2 shoutouts to his mum, plastic 300 abs, the Beowulf wig, a kilt, and a quick mention of his pen!s. Did I leave anything out? He was fun and funny and obviously having a great time.

If that is selling out, I’ll have what he’s having.

To those who b!tch that he’s on too many talk shows, I for one have had many much-needed laughs this week from his appearances.

Thought it was a little “Mickey Mouse”

Gerard Butler was wonderful.

Daveheart and What up with that – hilarious!!!

love love lovee gerard butlerr
