From the creators of Der, and Tum Ta Tittaly Tum Ta Too, The Rock is Da Derp Dee Derp Da Teetley Derpee Derpee Dumb. Rated PG-13.

Seriously, what happened to this guy? The Rock was suppose to be the next big action star! Arnold even symbolically passed him the torch in "The Rundown" but the guy has just pissed away his action star potential and done nearly all kids movies the past few years. Nevermind the fact that "The Tooth Fairy", Rocks latest, was suppose to be a Schwarzenegger movie back in the 90's and yes, we all know that he did do some family movies too but, only in between awesome action movies. The Rock has seriously dropped the ball. You could agrue some of his action movies were bad but I'd still rather see him do some bad action movies then some bad Disney movies. In only a few short years we went from this...

to this...

Seriously? The Tooth Fairy? Hulk Hogans movie career thinks this is a bad idea. Don't get me wrong, I love Disney and enjoy a good family film as much as the next guy but, I just cannot believe that this guy had the oppertunity to basically be the next Arnold and opted to become a walking Disney character instead.

The Rundown wasn't terrible. I'm not saying it's great, but it was entertaining.

Disney got a hold of him and is probably paying him BIG bucks. Too bad he's getting paid for cheesey movies.

What happened to the guy?

Not sure if anything's changed, he's been a consistently horrible actor since day one.

Walking around in your speedo with your eyebrow raised to motion picture acting is a bit of a jump.

money talks, bs walks. the only thing that seems to be coming out of hollywood these days are chick flicks and kiddie films. big budget blockbuster manly shoot-em ups just don't make as much money like they used to and so hollyweird ain't making 'em so much anymore. sad.

If I was offered the jack that this guy was, I'd be the modern day Don Knotts and play the part of The Incredible Mr. Limpet.

They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Recent Rock highlight: the amnesia episode of Family Guy where they cut to him simulating sex between Peter and Lois by smacking Peter's toy figure against Lois' on a table for a few seconds, then just staring blankly into the camera. Excellent "what the hell am I supposed to do now?" look by the Rock.

He said a couple of years ago he wanted to do more childrens movies, instead of the shoot-em up, bang-em up, profanity laced violent shit.

Also, maybe he did not want to be the next Van Damme/Lundgren/Wesley Snipes/Seagal. All of those guys were big time action stars, now they are nothing more than old ass, overweight, direct-to-dvd had beens.
