I was reluctant to believe that Jennifer Anniston could survive in an action movie. After watching the trailer for her romantic action film The Bounty Hunter, where she plays a bail-jumping reporter who's being hunted by the mob while her ex (Gerard Butler) tries to turn her in to the police for a profit, I was a little more convinced. But the truth is I saw this after I saw the trailer for Knight & Day, which I had even less expectations for. I haven't been a fan of Tom Cruise since he started his whole Scientology campaign. Dude, I don't shove my religion down your throat, don't shove yours down mine. But he won me (and many other former fans) back after busting a move in a fat suit in Tropic Thunder, so I cut him some slack when he cast himself a leading actress ten years younger than him for his upcoming romantic action film Knight & Day, where he plays a super spy who has to protect a civilian who witnessed too much. However, Cameron Diaz is...I wouldn't say she's out of his league. It's more like she's playing a different game. She's hilarious, kooky, and not afraid to make a fool out of herself. It turns out she's the perfect co-star for him--despite the height difference. Comparing the two, I've decided the Cruz-Cameron film has better action and better humor. What do you think?
