The World's Most Bankable Douchebag

Yup, he's a douchebag alright, but one may argue that he's the world's most bankable douchebag.

Cruise does dumb things, yet he remains relavant.






But he's a bonafide super star douchebag in his own right..... and you can't deny him.



Who could forget???



Then there's the whole:







You can't handle the truth...




And my all time favorite, "Showin' me the money"...


Love him or hate him, the guy is box office bank. I saw a preview for the new Tom Cruise Cameron Diaz movie Night and Day, and it looks like Cruise at his crazy, action finest.

Now someone get Les Grossman on the phone to set up a meeting with Cruise's people.

I just can't think of a good "Cruise Control" joke at the momment, because my work ver is "ressit" like "resist"

And I think he finally got his two front teeth fixed. "Bout time. That bothered me for YEARS>

How did we know you'd comment on that, DM, lol?

Beyond his "Jack" impression in "A Few Good Men," I think my favorite scene is the awkwardness with Demi Moore at the door of his apartment, when he thinks she's really into him, but she just tells him to wear matching socks.

"Ok . . . good tip." :-)

He's an odd but iconic dude, that's for sure.

Then there's this.

Ex-Scientology Kids

Scientology vs. the Internet

or you could just Google "Operation Snow White" and see what's on the government records about his cult.

No doubt Cruise has no idea of the families his cult ruins, but it isn't because people haven't tried to tell him.

I never did understand the allure of Tom Cruise. I just don't see it. To me he's a celebrity whose personna always interrupts his characters. Whenever I see a movie with him it (rarely), all I see is Tom Cruise - I don't see the character.

Although he seems like a nice person, and probably genuinely is, there still just something about him that irks me.

And that stupid character on the MTV movie awards the other night?

SOOOOOO stupid.

The Dental Maven said...

Jim: It's all The Maven sees, for crying out loud! I'm incredulous that there are those who don't see it!

Slyde said...

i really cant stand that i used to find him so cool.

and that i still like his movies...

Shawn said...

I like the Cruise quite a lot. In fact, there's very few of his movies I don't like. His whole Scientology thing is out there, but it doesn't really affect my enjoyment of his films.

He has all the range of a Daisey air rifle, and yet he keeps selling movies.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Sorry Zibsy, but beside Jerry Maguire, the Character from
MTV the other night, the Les Grossman one originally from Tropic Thunder, are the only reasons to LIKE Cruise. He stole the show.

I'm kinda with Shawn on this. I've liked most of Cruise's films. He was very underrated in Rain Man, and I loved A Few Good Men and Jerry Maguire.

Sure, he's a bit off kilter, but he makes pretty good movies. And Knight and Day looks like it's gonna be hilarious.

He is one of those people who is so incredibly good at his job that we can forget what an amazing douchebag of biblical proportions he is in real life.
