What we compared was the ...

Germany's problem is not with the movie plot or dialogue. It's with the star and his religious beliefs. Cruise is a member of the Los Angeles-based Church of Scientology, a credo that critics say is steeped in science fiction more bizarre than any cinema plot. Opponents of Cruise's ...
