Actors Who Lost Their Way
Robin Williams
The man who starred in great films such as Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King and Good Will Hunting now stars in fare such as Flubber, License To Wed, Night At The Museum and Old Dogs. When you talk about range Williams has it all, just look at the 'great' list above, he can go from zany to dramatic in a blink of an eye and what's important is that he does it with complete conviction and that's what makes it believable. Its a shame to see him in the turgid films he now stars, although World's Greatest Dad maybe a step on the ladder back to the good times.

Robert DeNiro
I'm not going to insult your intelligence by listing the great DeNiro movies, you know them and you know the man and what a colossus actor he is. This is why it really pains me to see him in the likes of Righteous Kill (Pacino I'm looking at you too), Hide And Seek, Showtime (oh Eddie I'm coming to you soon),  Godsend and *stares blankly* Rocky & Bullwinkle. Dear Mr Scorsese please re-hire your old mate, he needs you.

Cuba Gooding Jr
Jerry McGuire, As Good As It Gets, hey this guy might have some serious talent. Boat Trip, Norbit, Daddy Day Camp, no he hasn't, he's shit.

John Travolta
The man who Quentin Tarantino famously brought back from obscurity and crap like Look Who's Talking Now with Pulp Fiction. Travolta got a second chance at the big time but decided to trade it for being the 'token' bad guy in every average action movie out there, Swordfish, Broken Arrow, Face Off, The Punisher the list goes on and on. You need a rubbish baddie? dial-a-Travolta has what you need.

Eddie Murphy
Eddie, Eddie, Eddie where do we begin. Beverley Hills Cop I & II, 48hrs, Coming To America and Trading Places all great movies, even your average fare like The Golden Child was enjoyable but now ..... Dr Dolittle, The Nutty Professor, Pluto Fucking Nash, Daddy Day Care, Norbit and Meet Dave just to name a few of the utter garbage you spew out these days. Please, Eddie, sack you agent now, the fact that you didn't get the Richard Pryor Movie means something is very very wrong.
