Yeah, he has made IMO some questionable script decisions. Right after Jerry Maguire he was in a movie that for the life of me I can't think of the name of but he was an ice cream truck driver that got caught up in the middle of some kind of terrorist mess. It really wasn't a good movie so much so that I thought that it HAD to be made before Jerry Maguire and the studio was holding on to it until they could better capitalize on it, in this case being Gooding's oscar win. I've always meant to research it to find out because I thought there was no way an "oscar winner" would go back to something like that. And there were a number after that as well that were just not good choices IMO. And the thing of it is, he's actually a very good actor way beyond the bouncing off the walls characters he seems to usually play. There was a movie, again, don't recall the name, where he played a hitman. Had he made better script choices that less identified him with that "bouncing off the walls" personality and a better script and/or perhaps director, I think he really could have made something out of that role. His tone and mannerisms I thought played well but I kept looking at him and seeing his other roles. Eventually the story kind of fizzled but was engaging at first. I sincerely hope this new project offers something positive for the guy.
