    I can't think of one half-decent Matthew McConaughey film. He's got a weird voice and a rat-like face. Why does he keep getting work?

    Yes, yes, he's got a fit body but so do lots of actors in Hollywood.

    Maybe it's because he has a "weird voice and a rat face."

    In spite of that, or because of it(?), I wouldn't kick him out of bed.

    Would you?

    No, but I wouldn't pay good money to see him in a movie! If you know he's going to be in it you know it's going to be shit. Did anyone see Fool's Gold?

    No, I didn't see Contact because he was in it.

    He was in an episode of Sex and the City, which I thought was pretty entertaining.

    I have nothing against the man and I hope he prospers, but I'll defer to the people who have seen more of his movies.

    Thank you Moudi. The man is FINE. And his body.....forget about it. I liked him in a few movies but I dont think he is anything special. He can act but he is no Will Smith.

    Hey, I've no problem with him being hot but you know it takes more than that for me to shell out money to see someone at the movies.

    I think he's great !!! well rounded, nice looking, in great shape, and I don't see a thing wrong with his acting abilities. My favorite was his movie where he played the attorney taking on a case defending a black man for taking revenge on the white men who raped his daughter. Sorry cannot remember the name of the film.

    that was A Time to Kill and he was good, and in Boys Don't Cry he married a pregnant Drew Barrymore.

    Let's be clear: HE'S AWESOME!!!!!!!

    YES makayhey is my BOY! he's cute, he's sexy, he can busk his way through any type of role and the cops were called when he played bongos naked and high with a male friend. um hmmm...

    i'm not saying he's gay, i'm just saying he'd probably help out in an emergency. icon_twisted.gif

    Do you seriously go to see ANY movie because of one single person in the movie?

    Maybe Jet Li or Nicole Kidman, but even then, I probably am gonna have to be interested in the movie before I even realize who's in it.

    As for Mr. McConaughey, Well, there's "Dazed and Confused". I mean "That's what I like about these high school girls, I keep getting old and they stay the same. Other than that, he's hot.

    I've never paid to see a movie because he was in it. I've seen several movies in spite of the fact that he was in it (like Contact).
    I've watched some of his movies on TV because he was shirtless. I wouldn't pay for that though.
    If he wasn't as easy on the eyes as he is, I don't think he'd be getting any work at all under the profession of 'actor'.

    He looks great, but acting wise, he doesn't bring too much to the table. Seems most of the roles he gets are pretty much the same characters with slight deviations.

    Hah! Good point. Except, as someone else pointed out above, there are lots of actors who have great bodies, and are roughly his age...

    I agree that he leaves me cold as an actor...but I have a feeling that, independent of his bod, he appeals to women at some visceral level.

    Oh, yes, he was good in "Contact!" And, no, I didn't see the movie because he was in it.

    Of course, I can't remember a movie I went to see based upon the actor that was in it.

    He was great in A Time to Kill. He can act, just he's been picking more main-stream roles.

    I dont think hes attractive at all, and hes certainly not a very versatile actor. Ive asked myself this question a few times.

    Brandon Fraser is a hot f*ck, but he cannot act.

    What about Keanu Reeves? I've seen better acting from a lamp post.

    Owen Wilson. Ugh. Put down the lip gloss. Put away the highlights. Grosses me out.

    Keanu? A misunderstood soul, bless his beautiful eurasian heart.
