Actually, Tom Cruise's movies have not done that bad, considering.

I'm a huge Nicole Kidman fan, but it's her films that really flop.

Ben Roethlisberger is 6'5" and 250 pounds.

Anyway, hopefully the city's changed since he filmed All The Right Moves here.

Wow, that was a dreary rainy movie. Hope they have better weather and better location than that old flick. Goodness that didn't help Pittsburgh image.

Tom Cruise. Ugh. Hollywood can't retire him soon enough IMO.

Interesting how people think he is some bad actor. You might want to look at the movies he has done. He is much better than most in hollywood*. "A Few Good Men". Need I say more? That was a top movie that most actors can only dream about and 99% of actors will never touch. Do you think he doesn't still have that? Of course he does. The media went after him and he has some interesting personal choices, but he is still one heck of an actor.

*hollywood not capitalized because it isn't worthy with all the crap movies filled with violence and pure garbage!

Hey, Tom Cruise is a wacko, but more big movie production here is only a good thing.

Yes back then he was good...Now its been nothing but a string of Bombs....I have nothing against Cruise just that he's boring to me, his movies are all the same action flick, he no longer has any range outside of the same good guy saves the day flicks.

Back when he was doing films like Days of Thunder, Few Good Men, Firm, Far and Away, Interview with the Vampire, now that was range....

A bunch of Mission Impossibles, Knock offs to Mission Impossible, and a Dialogue-less Soft Porn Movie with your Ex-Wife is not what I call Range
