In Spread, Ashton Kutcher plays a sort of quasi-gigolo who lives the good life by mooching off beautiful, independently wealthy women.  And if this trailer is any indication, he spends the whole movie talking in a weird fake-stoner voice, as if he had to invent a whole new character to make us believe he’d lucked into a life of permanent leisure solely through good looks.Anyway, Ashton’s character is a freeloading chauvinist who treats objects like women and lives the life he always dreamed of, until one day, he meets a girl who makes him feel like he oh who really gives a shit.

And it was all the brainchild of the guy who wrote such classics as “Lassie’s Pet Vet” and “M is for Morlock.”  Seriously.
