As for The Diminutive One, I don't know why he's so hated. Is it because of his whackjob antics and personal beliefs? I don't know. Why a guy like Travolta gets a pass, while Cruise doesn't, is mystifying. But I've always enjoyed Cruise in his roles; no matter what the role, be it "Top Gun", the "MI" films, "Oblivion", "War Of The Worlds", even "Rock Of Ages", he always does a solid job. Does he have a particular style? Sure. But at least he's good at what he does. He's sort of like Nicholas Cage, or Russell Crowe; he is what he is, and you can't expect him do be Sir Laurence Olivier. But there are a lot worse actors out there.
I may go see this tomorrow - one of my friends who saw it said it was worth seeing and I trust his judgment.

I too can separate Tom Cruise the actor from Tom Cruise the weirdo.
