I have reluctantly come to admit that I enjoy watching Mark Wahlberg's movies. It's not that I think he's a great actor; he's always playing the same character. But he plays that character with such easy-going confidence that he conveys a natural ease that's refreshing. I believe in the industry they call it "charm".

But man, you're dead-on about Keanu.
