The worst thing Cuba Gooding Jr. ever did, it seems, was win an Academy Award. After shining in Boyz N the Hood and Jerry Maguire, he's basked in his newfound status by cranking out TV commercials and loser flicks like Instinct and this piece of shaved ice. Here he plays a truck driver who helps save the country from having a million people wiped out in a nanosecond.
Supposedly, Gooding and Ulrich have to keep a bus from going under 50 miles an hour--wait a minute, that's not right...Okay, they have to keep an explosive substance cooler than 50 degrees or everything blows up. That this script didn't self-destruct during its first pitch meeting is, well, chilling. This one will leave you cold.
