#2 A Few Good Men

Box Office Earnings: Made with a production budget of $40 million, A Few Good Men went on to collect $243.2 million worldwide. From this total, $141.3 million is domestic and $101. 9 million overseas. Not bad at all for the year 1992.

Critical Acclaim: A Few Good Men is one of Tom Cruise’s first major pictures and Box Office wins. At Rotten Tomatoes, the movie scored a Fresh 81% with an 89% Audience Score. A Few Good Men was nominated for four Academy Awards — Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Film Editing, and Best Sound Mixing. At the Golden Globes, it received five nominations — Best Motion Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay.

About the Role: Tom Cruise stars as Lt. Daniel Kaffee. The movie also stars Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore,  Cuba Gooding Jr., and Kevin Bacon. A Few Good Men revolves around two U.S. Marines charged with the murder of a fellow Marine. They attempt to prove their innocent, while hiding their own secrets.

Simply the Best: This military drama is one of a kid, unlike anything else that has arrived in theaters even today. It follows a known premise — proving your innocence after being framed — but A Few Good Men stand out thanks to its performances and great chemistry between the cast.
