I thought he was really good in Mr. Brooks. And appropriately cast.

The Dane Cook hatred is overblown and I don't really understand it.

cornucopias for one, but that's not a who. I like Kim Kardashian, I think she is just an incredible talent. If you go through my posts in the movie thread, I'd say I like the majority of what I watch. If you must really know dealing with this thread, I'd say my favortie actor that I really like is barbara stanwyck

I don't get a kick out of it. People that can't handle being made fun of are irritating.

Which is not a desirable attribute for a comedian to possess.

Dane Cook is pretty funny. His comedy specials are pretty tired, but he's a good comedian.

As a story yes, crap.

As far a the technological advances I thought it was great.

But, NO WAY should it have been up for best picture.

Trick question. Nothing he does is not meant for mass release.

He's a consummate marketing guy. That's all. He figured out the internet and social media before other comedians, and he's minted it for a decade now. But he's just not funny, which - call me crazy - I think is is a fairly egregious defect for a stand up comedian.

While he's a pretty good stage performer, his material, such as it is, is un-original and derivative. He seems to think that if he yells the end of the joke it somehow makes it funny. It doesn't, of course, it just makes the un-funny louder. To that end, his success has come despite his comedy, not because of it. And that, imo, is why he is so reviled in the comedy world.

I do not begrudge his success. But come on..... he's terrible.
