Can't believe a Jack Reacher fan would actually go see tiny Tom try to play this part. Worst since Peter Weir messed up the Patrick O'Brian book Master and Commander.

Randy, you might be right. I may find it impossible to watch Tom Cruise pretending to be Jack Reacher. Indeed, it's so WRONG.

Poor tiny Tom - good-looking and short. I know the feeling, sort of; I am short but not good-looking. (!)
I guess the producers of the movie are banking on the fact that the vast majority of viewers will have never heard of the Lee Child book character.
Statuesque Kelly McGillis complained that she suffered from muscle aches during the filming of Top Gun - from having to crouch in order to de-emphasize the height differences between her (5'11" I think) and tiny Tom.

I married a woman who is 3 inches taller than me. I am a tiny Tom-like 5'8". My first born son is 6'4". Go figure.
