  1. I’m game, Professor.

    Al Pacino: Going with Any Given Sunday (1999). Was it great? No. But it was decent. While early Pacino was a very subtle actor, late Pacino is big on screaming and speechifying. That worked for him in this movie, I thought.

    Nicole Kidman: The Hours (2002). I haven’t seen Cold Mountain, so take this with a grain of salt.

    Robert DeNiro: I have to go back a little farther for this one: Wag the Dog (1997).

    Keanu Reeves: Has he ever been in a good movie? I’m going to say Bill and Ted (1989) is the only one on IMDB I’d even consider watching again. Oh, wait, he was also in Dangerous Liaisons, which was pretty good. I don’t remember him in it, though.

    Martin Lawrence: I plead the fifth.

    John Travolta: Bolt was cute. Otherwise I’ll say Primary Colors.

    Annette Benning: American Beauty, I guess, although I find that movie overrated. Otherwise, The American President, which is a great movie.

    Wow, I’m noticing a pattern here. I like movies about politics, apparently.
