I don't know why people complain about this movie probably i have only read the comments of women because this movie PERFECTLY DESCRIBES WOMEN as they are in real life a can watch this movie over and over without being bored even for a second.Its a story about a guy who finally find what he wants in this world but of course women aren't able to love so they go for the money its a movie about what is in the head of a man and how the 21st century works so if you complain about it you are either too old for it or don't like the truth but there is no way at least that's my opinion <more>
that someone should say this movie is stupid. Ashton played good like always i cry every time i see the ending.
For those who read about pick-up artists PUA , must be familiar with the term Average Frustrated Chump AFC . From being an AFC, with the right skill and practice, you become PUA or Womanizer or player, whichever you want to call. PUA in Mystery's era was packed with skill like 3 seconds rule,winging, Demonstrate-high-value DHV , DLV, body-rocking and so on. The naked eyes cannot see these skills played by Ashton Kutcher. Those familiar with PUA will.Upon understanding this you will see why this movie is great. The writer must have done a very good research on Pick-Up artist scene and very <more>
skillful at writing 3-act structure screenplay. The writer has reversed the hero's journey from being a Player to complete AFC, in which in reality, an average guy would be from a complete AFC to skillful player. That concept made this movie genius and brilliant. It has been crafted skillfully in 3-act structure screenplay.Ashton Kutcher did a very good acting with his body language, facial expression and his voice tone. From different perspective, the shots are so artistic, and the soundtracks are well positioned in certain scenes. The second time you watch it you will! , you will memorize the dialogs and the soundtracks, and what song comes next.This is certainly not your another romantic comedy movie. It is a movie for certain audience, and for those who read Pick-Up artist stuffs, will find this movie 10/10. I dare to say, this movie is one of the kind, the only movie in its category, with genius screenplay and great acting.. and of course..great sex scenes!
The movie isn't like the others, if u r like the main character u will understand his pain at the end of the movie
Sleeping Your Way To A Life Of Privilege In L. A. (by Desertman84)
Spread is a comedy-drama that features Ashton Kutcher and Anne Heche. A modern tale of morality, director David Mackenzie's stylish film centers on the exploits of a Los Angeles gigolo working his way to infamy one mattress at a time. Margarita Levieva and Sebastian Stan play key supporting roles.Nicki is the epitome of big-city sexuality. Terminally hip and always fashionable, he's a sexual drifter who operates by his own set of rules. But in Nicki's world of money, power, and fame, true stardom is fleeting. As Nicki climbs the ladder of conquest and begins focusing his <more>
attentions on an older, well-to-do client, a strange thing happens.He begins developing actual feelings for a pretty young waitress. Little does he realize that he's about to fall victim to his own seductive game.Nikki has to decide whether he can live on his own once and for all in the hopes of finding something real.Fresh, funny and racy, the movie is a look at the trials and tribulations of sleeping your way to a life of privilege in Los Angeles. It is more of an ineffectual celebration of vacuous L.A. high life rather than a deconstruction of it. Ashton Kutcher is a credible and potent leading man with an easy address to the camera. He carries off the movie with some style.
Sexy, subversive and very surprising... (by appleknight)
Spread is an unusual little film. I say 'little', as it's essentially a low budget character-driven drama that is some how being commercially packaged as a rom-com. A quick glance at the credits reveals that this isn't your average Kutcher vehicle: it's directed by Scotland's David Mackenzie of "Young Adam" and "Hallam Foe" fame. Make no mistake, the Kutcher we see at the start of the film is very familiar: arrogant, uptight and utterly beautiful. But as the run-time flies past, we somehow warm to his character even though he's getting more sex <more>
than most of us will get in a lifetime. And here's the good news: Kutcher's performance is fairly astounding. He manages to reveal the humanity in his deeply flawed character with notable subtlety and a distinct lack of cliché. Kutcher's many sexual relationships portrayed in the film are brutally realistic: the modern and perhaps unromantic realities of casual sex are not dressed-up in any cheap Hollywood moralising. This is also evident in the overall tone of the film: there are many moments that could have descended into schmaltz, but a sharp edge it maintained on just about every line of dialogue. Kutcher fans: beware. This is a real departure for the actor, but thank goodness: it's a movie with all the superficial gloss of Hollywood and all the invention of an indie flick.
A film of lust and love and the difference (by click_1993)
I enter the film without too higher expectations. I though it would not be worth my while. Yet it became clear quickly the acting and attraction of the film was a lot better that I had original anticipated. I am proud to say that by the end I was truly impressed and moved; particularly by the ending and Ashton Kutcher acting as Nikki. Spread is a film with a story not dissimilar to other erotic thrillers. The character of Nikki is not unlike the character of Daniel Day-Lewis in The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Yet in spite of the film seeming simplicity, Spread has a lot more to offer than <more>
at first glance. Nikki, Ashton Kutcher is a character who is very dependant on other people. He almost feed of the women he meets as if he is a parasite. Although from an external point of view Nikki is a heartless creature, through out the film one is pulled into him whether willing or not.The other actors in the film give a strong a convincing part as they help or hinder Nikki through his life. Although the acting is by no means bad, Kutcher does slightly push the others into a shadow. His performance is a superb one. He does not use a lot of drastic movements or shouting to move is characters emotions. Indeed it is the stillness and quietness of Kutcher which gives Nikki his edge. Kutcher strength is in his voice. He has a very sexy and convincing voice, but that is not all that he uses it for. The happiness, lust, greed, love, sadness and despair which Nikki feels are conveyed wonderfully through Kutcher voice. The film takes place in LA: A city connected with dreams and heartbreaking. LA is often seen as a place where misery lives and this is referenced at the end of the film yet the city is portrayed as a desirable place to live. Part of this is through Nikki's eyes with the sense that everything in his life is perfect. Yet even after it all begins to go wrong, the city still remains beautiful. This reminds the view that we are not watching a film about LA, we are watching a film about a promiscuous young man. Also on a deeper note it could be to convey the fact that love can be found right in front of your eyes even if you can't see it.The erotic senses in the film are seen as very casual. They happen in frequent bursts. These scenes seem to just copy one another almost, as if every girl is the same to Nikki. Yet once he leaves Samantha and re-meets Heather the scenes change in feel. They become longer and gentler; more beautiful and loving. Eventually Nikki falls in love with Heather. We know from the start that there is something different for she is the one girl he has a true difficulty seducing. Usually it is Nikki who plays and uses the women he takes, but Heather almost reverses this and seems to be playing with him. Nikki's mind changes and he does begin to feel a true sense of love rather than just lust. Although Heather does "break" Nikki's heart it does show the audience that Nikki does have a heart and he is just as human as the next man. Heather has an extra intelligence which the other women don't and this along with a combination of other things brings out the heart in Nikki.The film as a whole is an interesting story and well acted with a good script and ideas. The ending its self is a very good ending for the story and has a very final conclusion to it. The film manages to convey what it is trying to say and in a way that is not boring or repetitive. The film is an adult film in both content and idea, however, it is a film definitely worth watching and I would recommend it to any adult with a interest in good film drama.
I really enjoyed the movie despite the fact that it was advertised as "romantic comedy" with the title translated to Russian as "Babnik" Womanizer . Yes, there are so much sex and "glamour" in the beginning; nevertheless, the real story begins afterwards – the one that is worth to see, and that is NOT a romantic comedy. The story of the closed doors. The story of selling the expensive staff for nothing. The story of the beginning and the end of love. "You are a dreamer, and it is scaring me", says the girl to Nicky, and this is so true. Nicky is the <more>
man without a plan, without friends, he survives because of the attractive appearance, that will not remain over time. That's why "Spread" is the real drama of dreamer's collision with the reality that he tried to ignore so far.The ending is not about happiness or tragedy – it's about bitterness, shame and folded 5-dollar note in the hand And Nicky will return to the house where he used to enjoy the life, but in the different role now, proving that the history is always repeating itself.8 out of 10
