I've been thinking of all the backlash I've been reading about Halle Berry's career "downslide" after her Oscar win. A number of reviews I've read about "Gothika" compare Berry's career choices to Cuba Gooding, Jr., who seems to have been prominently featured in clunker after clunker since "Jerry Maguire" (so I've read). While I think it's still too early to place Halle Berry in the same category as Cuba Gooding, Jr., I wonder how many other actors and actresses have failed to live up to the expectations we/critics/Hollywood had for them when they first burst onto the scene. The first person who springs to my mind is Bridget Fonda. I fell in love with her when I watched "Scandal," and by the time she had done "Godfather III," I just KNEW she was going to take the world by storm and win several Academy Awards in the process (and marry me...) What happened to her? The last GOOD movie I saw her in was "Jackie Brown," and that seems like a LIFETIME ago. Marisa Tomei and Mira Sorvino are two more who spring to mind. They both won Academy Awards early in their film careers, then... Who else?
