1)Beginning - He is the best at what he does (such as flying planes or driving cars)
2)Middle - Has a crisis of confidence (such as a friend dying) but meets love interest who helps him.
3)Ending - Pulls through it and returns to being the best at what he does (such as being a pilot).
Tom Cuise is now perhaps most famous for his sham marriage to Katie Holmes and being a couch jumping Scientologist who doesn't like being squirted with water.
James: Which one?
Richard: I can't remember exactly, it started with him being the best at what he did, he had a crisis of confidence, but pulled through it in the end.
James: Well that doesn't narrow it down at all!
Richard: Y-You're a jerk, you're a jerk!
My psychiatric advice for Tom is that he should stick to mediocre acting in mediocre movies. Heres to you dieing of a drug OD sometime soon :).
TOM CRUISE: No. No. Abs-- Matt, that is-- the-- post-- now-- now, you're talking about two different things.
Once more... Tom flexes his intellectual muscles.
TOM CRUISE: Okay. So, now you look at-- and you go okay. A-- a departure from that ideal scene is someone taking drugs, okay. And then you go, okay. What is the theory and the science behind that, that justifies that?
