Under-hated: Katie Holmes

I liked her in "The Ice Storm," and she was perfect for Joey Potter on "Dawson's Creek." But since then Mrs. Cruise has delivered so many atrocious performances as part of "Thank You For Smoking," "Mad Money," "How I Met Your Mother' and more that I'm always shocked/pleasantly surprised when she's better than terrible ("Don't Be Afraid of The Dark"). She's also a giant blemish on "Batman Begins," which is a major crime in my book. -- Matt Pais
