    Mackenzie delivers that story as a blend of sex comedy, dark satire, and morality tale that recalls various aspects of "Shampoo" and "Less Than Zero" and "The Graduate," but has a couple of nifty surprises and a poisonous sting in its tail that's all its own.

    Props to Kutcher for going to surprising, painful places. There's something haunted in his portrayal that hits hard and sticks.

    Kutcher gives a surprisingly proficient performance as does Heche who is the shining star of the film.

    One of the best things about this film is that ultimately nobody in it is attractive.
  5. The whole movie is pat -- very pleased with itself for being so up front about the ways of a 21st-century man-whore.

    If only Spread were half as entertaining as a Van Halen video.
  7. More skin is shown in Spread than in most Hollywood movies. But despite twitches of insight into its characters and their world, Spread refuses go more than skin deep.
  8. It comes off as an unpleasant, unrealistic morality tale. Loaded with music and pretty bodies, the film has a chance to lasso a young, indiscriminate audience of Kutcher fans.
  9. Although Kutcher deserves some ­credit for trying to spread his professional wings, it quickly becomes clear that he's in over his head.

    With "Shampoo" and "American Gigolo" now distant memories, the time evidently seemed ripe for another Hollywood stud movie. Despite Ashton Kutcher’s believability as an older woman’s kept boy, Spread isn’t a patch on those previous films.
  11. 25
    A witless homage to "Shampoo" and "American Gigolo" that's brain-dead on arrival.
  12. Lamely tries to update "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" for the Twitter set. Too bad Truman Capote’s not around for rewrites.
  13. Spread becomes a sloggy, tepid comeuppance tale.
