Angelina Jolie as ''Cyborg''? Paul Rudd as peroxide-blond ''Gen-Y Cop''? Daniel Craig as a ''Mr. Miyagi'' type? Faves in roles you won't believe!
Costarring Doug Savant, Dedee Pfeiffer, and Gene Simmons
Tagline: ''Staying alive is only half the battle''
We've always admired Clooney because he's so up-front about his failures, whether it's baroque, big-budget trash like Batman & Robin or this limp Point Break precursor, which finds him playing a jet-ski-riding, ponytailed coke dealer who battles barrio homeboys on both surf and turf. ''I've done some bad jobs along the way,'' he admitted to EW in 1999. ''But you've got to do them. The Facts of Lifes, the Baby Talks, the Red Surfs. When you're starting out, those are big breaks.'' (He left out Return of the Killer Tomatoes). And if you've ever wanted to see Clooney go head-to-head with KISS frontman Gene Simmons on film, your wish is now granted. An interesting footnote: Clooney's love interest in the film is Dedee Pfeiffer, real-life sister of his One Fine Day romantic costar, Michelle. Wonder if this ever comes up at the Pfeiffer Thanksgiving table?
Most Embarrassing Moment Savant (Melrose Place) somewhat erotically snorts coke off Clooney's lap as he's driving a Jeep in a Guns N' Roses T-shirt.
