Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shallow, melodramatic, pretentious and wildly misguided, it's also ambitious, entertaining and rather funny."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"Although Kutcher deserves some credit for trying to spread his professional wings, it quickly becomes clear that he's in over his head."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The tale of a guy who's just a victim of being a jerk, coping with the horrible curse of being good-looking."
‑ Matt Pais, Metromix.com
"The ghosts of Shampoo, American Gigolo and even Alfie (both versions) cruelly haunt the ripe and raunchy frames of Mackenzie's Spread - another "shallow-stud-in-need-of-redemption" movie that pales in the face of its predecessors."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
"The promising beginning deteriorates into a baffling shambles, with each character changing their entire personality at least once."
‑ Rosamund Witcher, Heat Magazine
"The film becomes unintentionally funny when he falls for another hustler (Margarita Levieva) with even less conscience, their grand passion leading to ludicrous behavior and soap-opera dialogue."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"A witless homage to Shampoo and American Gigolo that's brain-dead on arrival."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Kutcher is a credible and potent leading man with an easy address to the camera. He carries off the movie with some style."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"It's deeply moral soft-core porn."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Spread devolves into your predictable, well-worn morality tale, and while there are beautiful people and emotional quandries aplenty, what we're really left with is a turgid but flashy romcom."
‑ Matt Risley, Sky Movies
"The film doesn't quite come off, though lots and lots of clothes do during its randy, random 97 minutes."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Its formulaic, unconvincing story adds little to the conversation about slack ambition, mutual exploitation and evolving social mores."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Chicago Tribune
"Letting things slide into a sort of low-calorie moral vacuum, Mackenzie hasn't so much nailed LA's culture of skin-deep gratification as produced an advert for it."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"The very impressive Spread deserves to be a cherished gem."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"Surprisingly believable as a preening hotshot - who'd have thought it? - Ashton Kutcher is ultimately undone by a disappointingly moralistic script that can't quite allow his easy-cum, easy-go hedonist to go unpunished."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
