    Personally, I haven't really liked a Tom Cruise movie since Minority Report, and that wasn't great. Ghost Protocol was pretty good, but I thought Jeremy Renner stole the show. Jerry Maguire was ok, but Cuba Gooding Jr. stole the show there. Eyes Wide Shut was the worst movie I've ever seen. It was worth than Teen Wolf II, and that's saying a lot. Rain Man was a great movie, but not for Cruise really - for Hoffman.

    Is it just me, or is he really not that great of an actor?

    I find him completely unconvincing.
    Whenever he plays a stud, I look at him and think "I would avoid this jerk at the gym."

    He's alright.

    He's certainly not a Sidney Poitier or Spencer Tracey but like many celebrities Tommy has capitalized on his good looks.

    I've avoided all of his movies. Can't believe he is still headlining

    The underwear dance scene in Risky Business was his best work.

    I only liked him in Mission Impossible. Other than that, he isn't the worlds greatest actor. Minority Report and Colour of Money were thee worlds KAKKEST (SHITTEST) films ever!!!!

    Anthony Quinn, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Caine, Paul Newman and Steve McQueen are or were far superior actors.

    venue35 saidPeople who say eyes wide shut is a shitty movie usually dont know much about movies...i love that film. I think tom cruise is a really good actor. Sometimes he does over act...but whether you like him or not he is one of the biggest movie stars ever. Too bad about that scientology crap however. I hear he is trying to move away from all that.


    Too bad about that Scientology crap however icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif LOVE IT!!

    I liked him best in the cartoon version of himself in South Park's episode, Trapped In the Closet, with such great lines as
    Stan: "Dad! Tom Cruise won't come out of the closet!"
    Mom: "Honey, what's going on?"
    Dad: "Tom cruise won't come out of the closet."
    Cop: "Tom Cruise, Please come out of the closet. Everybody here just wants you to come out of the closet, Tom. Nobody's gonna to be mad; Everything's gonna be all right; just come out of the closet."

    You have to wait through a couple of commercials, and the Tom Cruise bit starts about 10 minutes in.

    Eyes Wide Shut was just awful! Pretentious, over-hyped film that did not live up to either its hype or its potential. Sad film, and about an hour too long to boot. And the stupidest ending ever. Cruise and Kidman's worst film ever. Anyone who thinks it was a good film, or even just misunderstood, well, I would question their judgement and impartiality. I really wanted to like that film, but it was like drinking rancid vinegar when you are already on the verge of vomiting from severe food poisoning.

    I have loved a lot of films that critics and fans have hated. I am very open minded when it comes to movies. But Eyes Wide Shut was garbage.
