THE HOUSE­HOLD NAME

John Tra­volta 71 cred­its

The Washington Post Sunday - - MOVIES -

John Tra­volta can get away with any­thing. He can fon­dle all the lady chins he wants. He can make all the aw­ful Scientology movies he can pos­si­bly bankroll. He can mis­pro­nounce the names of Broad­way’s big­gest stars. He’s John Tra­volta, so he’ll still have mul­ti­ple movies come out in any given year.

See also: Ni­co­las Cage, who has a knack for choos­ing the worst movies imag­in­able, but he’s a Cop­pola and an Os­car win­ner — so there. Then there’s Ni­cole Kid­man, whose re­cent flops have been par­tic­u­larly mem­o­rable. Rather than get a the­atri­cal re­lease, “Grace of Monaco” (2014) went straight to Life­time this year. But if you think that’s go­ing to slow down the Os­car win­ner’s ca­reer, think again.
