While not my favorite he's been in some movies I liked. Some were already mentioned but I would add Risky Business, and I personally thought he was really funny in Tropic Thunder.
It's almost impossible to be in as many movies as he's been and not like any of them.
Dang it all, I almost got to be the one remembering Risky Business, can't believe the thread went so far without a mention....Color of Money and Born on Fourth of July, both good and both mentioned previously to the not-being-mentioned post.
I loved Eyes Wide Shut. The movie creeped me out so bad that my roommate was able to torture me just by humming that weird music from that weird place....I'm a huge Stanley Kubrick fan, but I expected not to like Eyes due to reviews and due to Tom Cruise being in it. Well, the movie was so strong it just took all the Tom out of Tom....I mean, it didn't matter, you could sit there knowing it was Tom Cruise and not caring (his persona became irrevelant or just dissolved completely or something..)...
Anyway, I've liked Tom being Tom in lots of movies....Risky Business near the top.
I liked Jerry Maguire, but the Tom factor was a bit strong....(when he overdoes the angry outburst thing it weakens his performance imo).
