 Just FYI, Travolta, even if they were tripe, had hits in Look Whose Talking.  No doubt, PF put him back on the "A" list, but those baby talking films weren't flops.

 Also, wasn't it MI3 that helped Tom get back on track?  That came out after his couch jumping and was a huge hit with both fans and critics.  Trop Thunder just showed he might have a sense of humor.  MI4 proved it.  The last being the best film of the bunch since it didn't take itself too seriously.

Tom Cruise doesn't belong on this list at all.  The spectacle he made of himself on Oprah got loads of press, but it didn't have any effect on the performance of his films.  To say that Cruise had a comeback would require an extended period of time when he wasn't working in major motion pictures, or all his movies were bombing.  There is no such time period for him.  The infamous 'couch incident' was on 5/23/2005.  Only a month later War of the Worlds was released, and it did huge business.

 Burt Reynolds really came back on TV though with Evening Shade. That show was a huge hit. I'd say his true movie comeback was Boogie Nights. But with magic like Maone out there did he ever really go away lol!

I've kept thinking about this, and this list is epic fail without Ben Affleck.

Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms yo!

I disagree with several on this list.  Neil came back strong before that movie, and Rourke did as well with several hits in fact before that one.    As for Tom he was never really not big, but yea it helped take away the crazy for a bit, tho let's be honest he's still crazy, but all great actors are.  I have to agree with John as 1.  He was really out of the scene and when this hit he became huge again.

 Travolta and RDJ are def the top 2 but Travolta went down again in the past decade .... he still does support roles though ...
