the title and premise of the movie are hideous and far from funny

So glad to get a glimpse of James – he is a brilliant actor and we haven’t seen much of him lately. I am a huge fan of True Blood and would adore seeing him in some role in the series…

I love him! He was so good in Atonement, Wanted and Penelope. His eyes are such a beautiful blue. Great actor! Hope to see him in many, many more movies.

beautiful eyes!!

Gerard Butler wishes he was this guy.

Wow he has really impressed me. This guy can act and he’s a real cutie.

He’s the best! I seen him in almost everything he’s done and he never fails to disappoint and he’s easy on the eyes too, but even more than that, unlike so many of his contemporaries, he is a just a good, descent person. He is sweet and funny, always gracious to his costars and fans and a dream man to his wife (can we clone him). Congratulations and best wishes for a happy and healthy baby.

Love him!!! He’s so gorgeus! I can’t believe he is gona be a father!

Gee, golly, gosh. I just like this guy so much… yay
