Jedifox5: good call
mcfudgebutts: You’re telling me I can dodge bad movies?
pdxscout: POP QUIZ, HOT SHOT!
RearEchelon: I love *The Devil’s Advocate*, but did they have to make him try to use a Southern accent? *shudder*
abluersun: I didn’t expect Devil’s Advocate to have a 66% on RT. It’s not terrible by any means but for some reason I expected critics would dislike it.
Poemi: *Devil’s Advocate* made [half as much money](https://www.the-numbers.com/movies/custom-comparisons/Speed/Devils-Advocate) as *Speed*, but was a vastly better movie.
And still would have been even without Charlize Theron’s full frontal nudity. So let’s spare a little thanks for her too.
_TheBgrey: I wish I had the opportunity to turn down $11 million 🙁
avianeddy: I think you mean “The Bus That Couldnt Slow Down”
bolanrox: he choose…. wisely
Zuchm0: You can’t oversell how bad Speed 2 is. I watched it recently. The villain is Willem Dafoe. He kills ONE guy (who is kind of a dick anyway). His motive? He designed all the software for the cruise ship control system, and when his wife got cancer they fired him so they wouldn’t have to pay her medical bills. He manufactures an emergency to evacuate the ship so he can steal a (fully insured) diamond exhibit. Most sympathetic movie villain of all time.
Romnonaldao: Wise choice
aaronzvz: Smart move
isawonreddit2day: Thank you Mr. Reeves
throwawydoor: good choice cause advocate was great.
TheNotoriousJim15: Vanity….by far my favorite sin.
jfailing: I just laughed my ass off to [this podcast](
https://soundcloud.com/hdtgm/55-the-devils-advocate-live) today about how ridiculous this movie is.
SlavLover: I’ve had a Mandela Effect about Speed for a long time. For some reason I can’t shake the feeling that Tom Cruise was the star of that movie.
PopeJustinXII: I always thought it was cause he wanted to tour with his band Dogstar?
SmugSceptic: I’m certain another Bill and Ted is on the way.
ban_fidget-spinners: Good move
chrimpton: Why star in a piece of shit when you can star in an enthusiastic piece of shit?
Jynx3: One of my favorite movies
TasteCicles: Also, Keanu apparently took less pay because Pacino’s asking price was really high or something like that. God I love Keanu, I hope he finds some happiness soon.
Pearlfish: He turned down 11 million but got to sleep with 2 amazing ladies. Once at the same time too!
Zanydrop: Would that have made him the highest paid actor of a all time back then?
workitloud: An excellent choice. Garbage Part II is still garbage.
bibbidybobbidyboobs: Wait, he wasn’t in it? I thought he was. Who was?
platavato: He took a pay cut to do it too.
jabec7: Excellent …..decision 😐😐😐
VageCheese: That accent was atrocious tho
54692d4558b62da01af1: There’s a 2nd SPEED movie?
itty53: Devil’s Advocate was an averagely good film with just one 10/10 scene/speech.
whatIsThisBullCrap: He made 8 million for The Devil’s Advocate so it’s not exactly a huge sacrifice
padizzledonk: That was a great movie and probably Keanu’s best imo.
shifty_coder: He chose…wisely.
