Jane:  So, have you seen Triple X?

Stephanie:  Yeah, I saw it a few weeks ago.

Jane:  Yeah? Did you like it?

Stephanie:  No.

Jane:  Cause I heard it was stupid.

Stephanie:  It was terrible. I was laughing because it was terrible, it wasn’t funny. It was terrible.

Jane:  Well, did it even have a decent plot?

Stephanie:  No, it’s like, Vin Diesel’s supposed to get some cars for…

Jane:  Oh God!

Stephanie:  Something and then… It’s supposed to be some big action movie and he’s supposed to be the big hero. It was cheesy.

Jane:  So uh, was Vin Diesel good in the movie? His acting, was it good?

Stephanie:  Oh, there’s a couple good action scenes I guess, but his acting was terrible.

Jane:  Did he look good?

Stephanie:  Um, he looked alright. I don’t really find him that unattractive.

Jane:  I don’t either. Well, what about his co-star? Was she any good?

Stephanie:  Actually she was not as bad as him, but the movie, I just didn’t enjoy the plot really.

Jane:  Well somebody actually told me, I have a really funny friend who told me that if I go with somebody with a good sense of humor, it would be fun to make fun of that, actually, like it was that bad.

Stephanie:  Yeah, if I would have known ahead of time, I probably would have done the same thing. It was that bad.

Vin Diesel is an up and coming actor and is said to be the next heartthrob of young women. He has starred in movies such as The Fast and the Furious, Pitch Black and Saving Private Ryan and I bet he’s signed on for a couple of action movies over the next year.
I’ve heard that in _Triple X_XX, he plays a character very similar to James Bond. After listening to Stephanie’s opinion of the movie, it doesn’t sound like Vin pulled it off.
Do you like Vin Diesel? Who are your favorite actors? Tell us about them at the Movie Madness message boards.
