Don't Punk Me, Ass

When will Ashton Kutcher learn his lesson? Certain people are off limits. He can't go around "punking" everyone, especially Bernie Mac. In Kevin Rodney Sullivan's Guess Who, Kutcher plays Simon Green, a successful young stockbroker who is engaged to Theresa Jones (Zoe Saldana). When Theresa's parents renew their wedding vows on their 25th anniversary, Theresa takes it as an opportunity to introduce her parents to her white fiance.

Keanu Reeves still can't act

Constantine is intense. Intense like that shady guy standing outside Wawa on Spruce and 38th, intense like the lines for elliptical machines at Pottruck, intense like ... well, you get the point.
