    Stranger than Fiction is being marketed the same way, as a wacky comedy (the DVD. I'm not sure how it was promoted in theaters). And it's not.

    Will Ferrell did the more serious role very well in that movie.

    lmao @ martin getting fucking 50 million a movie.

    And how much you get paid for movies is directly related to the class system. Carrey has been A-List for years.

    People are willing to spend money on him because they know he's going to sell. He has power.

    NO, Johnny DEPP is A-List. Jamie FOXX is A-List. DENZEL FUCKIN WASHINGTON is FUCKIN A-LIST.

    Jim Carrey hasn't been A-list since The Mask.

    Bruce Almighty grossed over 500 million worldwide.
    That was what, 3 films ago?

    Yeah he's way off the A-List.

    3 of Jamie Foxx's best movies combined probably haven't done that.

    The fact that you don't know how to READ may attribute to your sheer stupidity.

    I can read it. Maybe you didn't see where I said

    You can be a shit actor and still be A-List.

    The A-List comprises the most BANKABLE stars in Hollywood. Not the most talented.

    But if it makes you feel better, we'll still say you won.
    It'll be our little secret.

    If this was true, then how come Eminem isn't A-list? while 8 mile made how many millions in the box office?

    Fucking idiot. How many times do I have to prove you wrong?

    You have yet to prove me wrong. You're great at insults and conveying anger over the internet, though.

    Eminem has not continued acting. If he had, then he'd probably be A-List after a while.

    I don't know why I'm even bothering with this.

    "A-List" means your name sells tickets. If you sell lots of tickets, you get paid a lot. You're bankable (and A-List).

    Do you think it's a coincidence that most actors named "A-List" make the most money?

    By your logic, only the best actors are A-List. Meaning that actors who star in nothing but complete box-office flops could potentially be A-List, as long as their acting is stellar.

    Do you see how absurd this sounds?

    SALES matter, not talent. Just like music. It's an industry. It;s all about money and power.

    Do a google search for A-list and see how many you can find that don't relate it to how bankable the actor is.

    You can continue declaring yourself the winner.

    Now show him what he's won.

    Nothing.

    Because it's the fucking Internet.

    Anyway, I saw this movie yesteday and was dissapointed.

    It has some great camera work, especially in the story scenes, but the story seemed to fall apart. It had one good twist, but I didn't really like any of the characters much. Shoulda seen "Breach" like I planned.

    very true, but i hoped that would be overlooked since its such a small article that i´m sure hardly ever gets viewed. either way, it sounds accurate.

    The REASON Bruce Almighty earned so much is because it had GOOD commercials and ad campaigns. Add people who see the name "Jim Carrey", who has seen his past movies in the mid-90s (when Jim Carrey was the shit), and that's how it attracted viewers.

    But Jim Carrey was never funny anymore. He started making shitty movies like Man On The Moon. And those shitty dramas didn't attract shit, yet they STILL starred Jim Carrey. And this new one "23" sucked ass too, and didn't earn that much in the box office. So I don't know what the hell you're going on about how Carrey is still a-list...no he USED to be a-list. He's shit now.
