Good ol' Dane Cook

09.18.2008
A recent poll done by MovieTickets.com has found that even Dane Cook's fans don't want him to do any more acting. Although only voted on by a mere 2000 people, it 37% said that he should "stick to stand-up comedy", 36% said he should "keep acting" and 27% said he should "give away humpback whales". You last saw Dane Cook in the trailers for the upcoming MY BEST FRIEND'S GIRL. Or you didn't. By the way, you rock.

To be perfectly honest and objective, this guy has been in some good films. I enjoyed MR. BROOKS and WAITING, but I have never seen a movie and thought that it was better for having him. And only 2000 people took the poll. To be hyperbolic though, on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being love his acting, 10 being loath his acting, I would have to say I hate him and I wish he was dead.

Exclusive new MY BEST FRIEND'S GIRL clip HERE. But why you would click I have no idea.
Extra Tidbit: I wonder what Cook's parents think of him. They probably act like Chris Tucker's in RUSH HOUR and tell everyone their Dane is a drug dealer, not that yahoo on TV.

He's aight...

IMO Dane is good as a side character, Dan in Real Life being a prime example. He was just wasted in Employee of the Month and Good Luck Chuck (he wasn't funny at all in either). I think his stand up is good but I could think of comedians far better than him.

But in all honesty, I don't go see movies cause I know Dane Cook is in it. I have no problem with renting it when it comes out on DVD if I am interested. But the guy has never put my ass in a theater seat so...

HA

Dane Cook is an ass clown. In one of his stand up shows all his jokes were stolen from Louie CK. It was almost word for word. He's a joke.

To Thizzle: How the hell is the amount of attendees to a show a meter of how good the comedian is? The larger the venue the more attendees, obviously. Chris Rock could have done that many in his day, Seinfeld could probably still do that, there are TONS of comedians with specials.

I think the hate comes from the fact that Dane Cook has a popular act because of his style and look - aka he acts like a good balls, tells wild stories with tons of physical comedy and women think he's hot -

A lot of people like Carlos Mencia... nuff said.

It's the jealous thing: Britney Spears' music makes huge coin but isn't actually good. People become resentful that their favorite band, whom they believe is sooo good, hardly get any recognition while untalented hacks who half the time don't even write their own material get all the fame.

Don't agree

I think Dane cook is funny as hell as a stand up comedian. Obviously many other people do too since he broke the record for the amount of attendees at his "Circle of Death" stand up routine. So can't say I see where this post is coming from.

I'm a Dane Cook fan. Still, I don't get how he attains leading roles. He's not a leading man.

All I know is that if he is so "unfunny and shitty and needs to die" then why the hell did anyone give him his own stand up specials? Huh? Just something I thought I'd point out.

Obviously, SOMEONE finds him funny, and when I say someone, I really mean A SHIT TON OF PEOPLE.

The first thing I ever saw with Dane was his stand up act where he talks about working for Burger King.

How in the HELL someone can't find that whole bit funny is beyond me.

Probably a bunch of up tight fucks

Probably a bunch of up tight fucks who need to remove the uncomfortable dildo from their assholes and reposition it in their mouths.

I don't really get why he gets that much shit from some people. He is not the first unoriginal comedian and he wont be the last. I dont love him but he can be funny at times in his stand ups. I agree that he is not leading man but he can be funny in his movies if he gets right material.

No thanks on MBFG

Dane Cook was funny only in stand up, when he first started, then he took the Recycle Reuse Redo thing in effect and just used his old jokes in different ways, thats not the way it works. Thoo has a point, Waiting and Mr. Brooks was alright, but he still can't act worth a shit. Feed him to the vultures.



But Kate Hudson looks hot as hell in that movie.

I like his standup but I just think he stars in the wrong movies. As soon as I saw the trailer for "My Best Friends Girlfriend", I just knew it would be shit, I mean c'mon it has fuckin' Biggs in it. As for being louder and more animated to be funny, do you remember Chris Farley? Thats all that fucker did, and people thought that big douche was the funniest person ever.

his parents both died in the last few years, c'mon guys.

i think he just needs to stop making movies with lionsgate. he just doesn't quite have the leading man quality. i admit, i usually like dane. but even he has to make the effort to defend his films and make excuses sometimes.

he needs another mr. brooks, not another good luck chuck.

Dane Cook is not relevant in anything in our pop culture media. So why is he even mentioned on this site??? C'mon guys! Who cares about Dane Cook! Let him fall off the face of the earth. He sucks as a comedian and he sucks even more as a wanna-be actor!

His best movies were the ones where he wasn't trying to act just like his normal stand-up comedian self, mainly Mr. Brooks and Dan in real life. I was never a huge fan of his stand-up, so I couldn't really care less if he stays with acting or not.

Can't he quit both?

He has no comedic point of view and doesn't realize that being louder and more animated doesn't make his material any funnier - that is - the material he didn't steal from Joe Rogan, Louis C.K and others. I think he should stick with acting where someone can feed him lines he doesn't have to poach from other comics.

For a staff that seems to hate dane cook so much, you guys sure have advertised his next film a lot. I'm getting sick of seeing that trailer when I try to watch clips on this site.
