    Not that he's a great actor or anything, but has John Cusack made a BAD movie?

    Damn - going back 4-5 years, around the time when The Jackal with Bruce Willis was out (not a great movie), there was one with no name actors that was also about Carlos the Jackal. The Assignment or something like that. I worked in Blockbuster PT then, and I used to recommend that to people all the time. Good flick. I wish I could remember it.

The brief glimpse of Rebecca Romjin-Stamos in the buff was almost enough to redeem the film, but not quite.

    A bad Cuzack movie? One that springs to mind is a "sell-out" role he did for "Con Air", which was an okay movie.

    I haven't been able to watch the Black Hawk Down extras yet,since I loaned the movie out to somebody who takes forever to give back.

    "We Were Soldiers", with Mel Gibson, comes out this week and I'm tempted to see it. Did anyone catch it at the theaters?

    No I didn't see it in the theater but I've had it on VCD ever since it came out. It's not as good as say Platoon, but it's a pretty good Vietnam movie. It's definately worth seeing.

    Yup, I read somewhere that Cusack says he does three movies that he likes, and then does one to make money. So every fourth one should be average at best. Still, one of the funniest motherfuckers out there [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    But it wasn't "bad", it was okay. I'm just trying to think of any real stinkers he's done, and I can't.

    "High Fidelity" was pretty good. Cusack AND Jack Black. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I just thought of a couple bad movies I've rented:

    "Crash" with James Spader and Holly Hunter. Might be the single worst movie I've ever seen! Sick.

    "Hope Floats" with Sandra Bullock. I didn't finish watching it. It wasn't horrible, but I just thought it was incredibly slow-moving. After awhile I thought "I don't really care what happens in this movie, if anything ever does".

    </font>[/QUOTE]Being John Malkovich, America's Sweethearts, Serendipity, and Con Air were all stinkers (although I liked Being John Malkovich's off-the-wall uniqueness somewhat). But for the most part, Cusack has a pretty good track record. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] I think he's one of the most underrated actors out there.

    Being John Malkovich sucked big time. Worst movie I've ever seen.
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.
