The cheese stands alone

Tom Cruise pulls dorkiest move of all time at his own wedding.

Let's state the obvious: Tom Cruise has no style. Naturally, the sophistication and fabulousness of his Italian nuptials never threatened to displace, say, JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette's big day from the celebrity wedding hall of fame. Even so, there was something so promlike and disappointing about the TomKat wedding photos, particularly those shots of Katie, dressed like Catherine Zeta-Jones 20 years from now. But nothing compared to the news that Tom serenaded Katie at the reception with -- what else? -- "You Lost That Lovin' Feelin'." We can understand Tom (see also the Least Self-Aware Human on the Planet) choosing the frat-boy anthem he sang in "Top Gun," but what about his friends and family? Does no one love this man enough to look him in the eye and say, "Come on, guy!"?
