‘Guess Who’ sounds off

Kutcher's new laffer preems in H'wood

HOLLYWOOD — At Sony’s “Guess Who” after-party Sunday, there was talk about having to guess what the dialogue was during the Chinese Theater premiere.

“This is the worst venue in the world for sound,” said helmer Kevin Rodney Sullivan. “It’s sloppy. It echoes.”

Exec producer Betty Thomas said, “It’s what kills me about this theater. When you listen to the sound in another theater, it’s so sharp.”

The after-party was at Geisha House, of which star Ashton Kutcher is part owner. In the second-floor bar/smoking room, Kutcher said he’d invested in the restaurant “like it was a stock.”

“I invest in people,” he said. “I believe in the people who manage this place.”

And though he’d like to see the restaurant do well, with “Guess Who” Kutcher has a more pressing concern.

“I’m praying on two knees that I get a solid review for a movie once in my life,” he said.
