50 Sucks!

12/7/2006 1:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

50 Cent50 Cent is following in Madonna's footsteps. No, he's not adopting a Third World rugrat, but he is revealing Madge-a-trocious acting chops.

Fiddy, aka Curtis Jackson, stars in the abominably acted and amateurishly written Iraqi war drama, "Home of the Brave." The rapper's portrayal of a disturbed vet is quite possibly the only thing more painful than being shot nine times. Co-stars Samuel L. Jackson and Jessica Biel should be shopping for new agents.

At an advance screening on Wednesday, the flick's director, Irwin Winkler ("Life as a House"), revealed that he was hesitant to cast Fiddy for fear the rapper would wind up partying all night. To Winkler's surprise, Fiddy never pulled a Lohan, and showed up on-time every day. In fact, Winkler was so impressed with Cent's acting (really!) that his role was expanded. Now you know where to send your grievances.

To his defense, Fiddy wasn't the only one phoning it in. Christina Ricci gives a performance so stilted, it makes her portrayal of Wednesday Addams seem positively giddy.

Be warned, "Home of the Brave" takes real courage to endure.

TMZ......Can you explain what do you mean by 'third world rug rat'

I found this to be very offensive and very unbecoming, but then again what to expect to you guys?

I was there last night at the Archlght screening and could not agree more - what a HORRIBLE movie - terrible in so many ways... I was laughing through 90% of it - what a ridiculous script... There's so much material to tap from - yet they blew it big time. One of the most boring, laughably bad films of the year by far.

If there really is a God in heaven some one will pump a clip into this ape from which he will not recover. If it wasn't against the law I'd be proud to do it and then be given a public service medal

Do any of you remember that Rugrats is a cute animated movie? I dont think that term is derogatory in the least. And sorry to tell you but Malawi is a THIRD WORLD nation. The truth is a bitter pill to swallow.

The rug rat comment..not cool...

I cant stand "fiddy"...That dude is a phony!! I saw him in concert when he first came out at the Roc the Mic tour and he SUCKED!! He didnt even preform!! He payed his CD while he walked around on stage and didnt even TRY to lip sync!! Can he PLEASE come up with something of substance in his music?? I highly doubt his acting skills are anything to write home about either...He is the WANGSTER!!

In the words of HOVA don't get "conned out of 2Cent"

One can only imagine what Charles Darwin would say after getting a look at the humanoid, Fitty Cen. Surely, evolution has passed this animal by.

NOW I KNOW WHAT "TMZ" STANDS FOR (THE MINDLESS ZEROS)

I HAD MADE A STATEMENT IN A BLOG A WHILE BACK ABOUT HOW SLEAZY THIS TMZ BLOG SITE IS, AND THE PITIFUL PART ABOUT IT IS, WE KEEP COMING BACK FOR MORE. BUT EVEN FOR THIS SLEAZY BLOG SITE, THEY HAVE SCRAPED THE BOTTOM OF THE BARRELL THIS TIME WITH THAT STATEMENT. THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU THE TYPE OF PEOPLE BEHIND THE SCENE THAT IS RUNNING THIS BLOG SITE. LOW CLASS!!

OBVIOUSLY YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE ANY CLASS OR DIGNITY TO RUN A BLOG SITE BECAUSE "TMZ" (THE MINDLESS ZEROS) HAVE PROVEN THAT.

THIS IS WAY OUT OF LINE FOR THEM TO CALL HELPLESS, ORPHANED CHILDREN WHO ARE DYEING EVERYDAY "RUGRATS" AND THOSE MINDLESS ZEROS SHOULD HAVE TO ANSWER FOR THAT!

ANY BLOG SITE THAT IS THIS THOUGHTLESS AND TACKY SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN FOR GOOD!!!! PERIOD!

OH BOY! IF I HAD MY WAY, THEY WOULD BE SHUTDOWN YESTERDAY!

Oh what a surprise. 50 is no Bobby DeNiro or Chrsi Walken or Morgan Freeman
A rapper,
one that was involved in something pretty screwy to be shot at 9 times, no acting training,
no diction training just --a good agent and lots of connections-- sucks in a movie? WHY is anyone shocked? Movie producers/makers just throw money at the TVQ rating and forget that the cast actually needs to be able to emote and become the character.
The problem is 50 has no character.
