Quigley Down Under, Runaway, Lassiter, An Innocent Man were pretty bad and then Folks! and Mr. Baseball sent him back to TV.
I love, love, love Mr. Baseball. I've probably seen it close to a dozen times. It's my favorite Selleck movie by a mile. But then, I'm a sucker for fish-out-of-water stories, especially if they add an intercultural romance into the mix.

This gets my vote for "DVD Talk Comment of the Year." Well said, Troy. Bravo.

It's hard to become a movie star, period. But TV has launched plenty of careers.
And George Clooney.
