OK movie. Would have been much better without Oprah. She is not a movie actress. She may act well, but not in the movies.

The Butler is a great movie. Great story, great acting. Fantastic.

Yay for Jennifer! This will be her 7th 100 Million dollar film, domestic! And with only a 37 Million dollar budget, this film spells SUCCESS!!! You go girl!!!

Saw The Bulter , what a boring stupid movie, must be the same people who go to a see those dumb Tyler Perry movies, that have big first weeeks , put don’t make more then 60 million… don’t waste your time, not worth the money.

@Lisa What in the H does this movie being #1 have to do with your silly message. This system was initiated when BUSH was in office and I am pretty sure that he knows that he can be listened to but if you do not have anything to hide you shouldn’t be worried also if system is catching terrorist it doesn’t bother me, because I live a clean life and I am not doing anything wrong. people need to stop putting all there business out there electronically anyway.

Sounds like a good movie, and I really like Forest Whitaker. Wish he was in more movies as he is a good actor.
