Do You Like Matthew McConaughey Better in Dramas or Comedies?


Matthew McConaughey has just signed on to play a criminal defense attorney in an upcoming legal thriller, and all I can picture is McConaughey's lawyer role in another legal thriller, A Time to Kill. And just like A Time to Kill, this movie, The Lincoln Lawyer, is also based on a bestselling novel.

We haven't seen McConaughey in a dramatic film in a little while — the 2006 football movie We Are Marshall was the last drama he did. In general, he's mostly stuck to rom-coms (and whatever you'd call Surfer Dude). Do you think he should stick to comedy? Or does he do drama better?

Lol, I love how there isn't an option for "I like him in both"! C'mon, he's not that bad :PI agree that A Time To Kill was a great movie, and he was very good in it. As far as comedies, I think he just picks bad movies... Still, I chose dramas.

I agree with Ginger, A Time to Kill was a really great movie and I thought he was terrific in it. He just hasn't really picked good movies in a while. Whatever happened to that Surfer movie he was filming? Straight to video I'm guessing?

i feel like he is just being him self in comedies. but in dramas, he has to actually work and he's good. A time to Kill was great.

Drama! A Time to Kill has some of my favorite courtroom scenes, like his closing argument.

Weird, had this same debate with a friend recently. He's better in dramas - but I don't really rate him as an actor at all and consciously avoid anything he has a starring role in.

I think I prefer him in dramas. His comedies just come off as cheesy. A Time to Kill & U-571 were both really good movies.

Comedies, I guess. I don't remember watching him in much else.

He sucks in comedies. He excels and is the most HOLY CRAP give me some of that appeal shows up in movies like We are Marshal and esp A Time to Kill.. everytime he said Sandra's characters name.. I just about broke out into a sweat.. he added an extra sound to it and it purred.. rouark.. plus I loved Amastad, Contact (only he could make a preacher sexy as hell), Newton Boys, u-571...

I love him and would watch him in *almost* anything.

I liked him in We Are Marshall, but he does tend to play the same character over and over. I agree with luckyme: in Dazed and Confused, he was just playing himself. :)

Comedies - he's kind of a cheeseball and I think he's comic instincts are better. He doesn't seem completely believable to me in dramas. He was funny in Tropic Thunder.

i like him in just about anything, but if i had to choose i would say comedies. hes' just really funny in soo many movies that you have to adore him.

The only thing I liked him in was Dazed and Confused. I'm pretty certain he wasn't even acting in that, he was just being himself. So for me, neither.

PS: do you ever notice his characters in dramas always seem the SAME....it's like he can only play one guy, be it a coach or a bookie
