Tom Cruise was brilliant as Frank in the movie "Magnolia". Perhaps he shared common traits with that character to make it work so well, but I wouldn't call him overrated as an actor based on that performance alone.
He did good in a few other movies, most of which I never cared for. He's very good at playing borderline narcassistic pricks which should be his typecast by default.

I think he's far better than most of the actors that people mentioned on here, but I do think he's overrated. Didn't want to go with an obvious choice like Megan Fox who's never been lauded for her acting skills.
Tom Hanks is a good one that's already been mentioned. He's had a few solid performances under his belt, but never anything i've ever considered as being groundbreaking or awe inspiring.
