Who’s the gentleman in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies:
Captain Jack Sparrow or Will Turner?
The real gentleman: Sparrow
The whole damn world is in love with Cap’n Jack, and for good reason. Yes, he’s the thieving menace with as much eyeliner as a Jersey hooker, but he rescued Elizabeth with no ulterior motive. Humorless Will, on the other hand, was clearly hoping for some compensation between the sheets—though one wonders why, since he lacks a gentleman’s joie de vivre.
Who’s the gentleman named Colin:
Colin Powell or Colin Farrell?
The real gentleman: Powell
Each has played a part in a debacle (Dubya’s Iraq folly, Oliver Stone’s Alexander), but the manner in which the two dealt with the situation says a lot, doesn’t it? Besides, back in 1996, Powell was lauded as the Republicans’ answer to Bill Clinton, but the ex-military man turned down the candidacy—out of deference to his wife’s wishes. What has Farrell done at a woman’s urging? You’ll have to watch the sex tape to see.
Who’s the gentleman on Entourage:
Eric or Turtle?
The real gentleman: Turtle, by a hair
E is more suave and fancies himself a man of manners, but he can’t quite get over his Napoleon complex (see: Telling his girlfriend he not only fucked a Perfect 10 model but also that he did it again in the morning) or his belief that he’s destined to be a big-time Hollywood player. Turtle, though unrefined (and prone to cheesy pick-up lines and unhealthy obsessions with sneakers), is an unfailingly loyal friend, hard worker, and stand-up guy.
Who’s the gentleman athletic legend:
Zinedine Zidane or Michael Jordan?
The real gentleman: Zidane
Without condoning Zidane’s headstrong behavior, you have to respect a guy who stands up for the women in his life—what’s more, you’d do well to remember that he did so amid a comeback made reluctantly for team and country, and which brought the French to the brink of winning the World Cup. “His Airness,“ ever one to trade on his hardwood legacy (and Nike’s supreme branding), actually showed poorly by making far too many comebacks, shady trips to the casinos, and extracurricular liaisons.
Who’s the gentleman in the Star Wars movies:
Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker?
The real gentleman: Vader
Yes, the black-masked Vader is an archetypal villain, but he’s also classy, well spoken, and a faithful devotee of the Force (albeit the Dark Side). Does he bring his minions into his battle against young Skywalker? No. He merely tries to compel his farmboy son to join the family business by dueling light saber to light saber. And the clincher: Unlike Luke, Vader never put the moves on his sister.
