I couldn't beleive what People Mag said about Mark. they said compared to Thandie Newton, Mark was a "Big Black Whole". I haven't had the chance to see the movie yet, But I seriously doubt that mark lacked in any area of his role in this movie. He is a very good actor.

I hate it when magazine trash mark. I wonder why people are so mean. Mark played his part wonderfully. I loved the movie. I know this is pretty mean if it's true but i think it's because he was Marky Mark before or something. Cause on this website that Lianne found it says you can forgive him for the whole funky bunch phase.... here is the link www.tvguide.com/newgossip/caught/021017.asp

If it doesn't work go to the thread the truth about charlie premiere pics and click on tv guide link.

Well it's just one person's opinion. Not to be a film snob, but I wouldn't put too much weight on People magazine's opinion. You also have to take into account that as film reviewers, they've probably seen Charade a gazillion times, analyzing every aspect of it.

Some random facts as I eventually get to my point. I don't know if all of you have seen Charade, but it is a homage itself - to Hitchcock's classic thrillers. It didn't get all the glowing reviews you hear now when it first came out. It was considered too light, a poor American copy of the UK director's work. Sound familiar???

It also was one of the last hits Cary ever made. So there's that aspect of daring to redo the last hurrah of a beloved actor. The movie played to Cary's strengths and his persona. And like alot of studio actors, its sometimes hard to separate the actor from the persona. In this case, we also have the separate the actor from the character he played promblem. Whether you, I or Mark likes it or not, some people cannot and/or will not separate (which is a whole nother issue) his persona of old from Mark Wahlberg the actor and person.

I think many reviewers are forgetting the very thing they rail Mark on: nobody can be Cary Grant. Mark was not playing Cary Grant. Which was the point, but some people can only see Cary in Joshua Peters shoes. His Joshua is not even like Cary's Joshua except for the skeletal parts. Ah well don't want to write a term paper here, but you get the point.

As I always tell y'all, write to the person if you disagree. Wouldn't hurt to tell them your opinion. You never know you could be in the same magazine as Mark. Wouldn't that be something?

i have seen the movie yesterday and it is a very good movie, there are only 2 things that makes me lol , first the french people are very very stereotyped , the hat, cars, bread..... as i am french it was soooooooo funnny to see how the realisator "imagined" us! the whole movie is full of strange things , of stereotypes! and the character mark is playing is the most stereotype of all so i laugh a lot! secondly it was funy to hear mark speaking french ( it seems obvious that he never learnt it so he tried to do his best but ......he has a german accent so it is cute and funny! but the movie was great and mark plays very well his parts, he is very convincing even when he speak french with a german accent! lol
i hope he took the time to visit paris!

Of course he's a good actor, no- he's a great actor, and The Truth About Charlie was an awesome film, Mark did a very good preferming!
