Gerard Butler could be a bigger deal. But his swagger doesn’t amount to anything. He plays too many losers and slobs and men only other men would want to marry — men who don’t shave, and who wear sweat pants and care only about being a man. Butler barks yet never bites. He’s all pounded hand greetings and leather jackets and thumb rings. But he has no danger or darkness, only the faint air of a hangover. His appeal is meant as irony: Ladies, this beery, chauvinist sports nut loves you. This is modern movie stardom, and it’s depressing: the romantic lead who could also be selling us body spray.
