I hate to kick a guy when he's down, but Robert Pattinson is in dire need of career counseling. Frankly, the man hasn't been in a good movie since Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and that includes this impenetrable forest of idiocy.
But he's not really the problem with Cosmopolis, a misfire from director David Cronenberg based on a novel by Don DeLillo.
Pattinson gamely tries to find his way as Eric Packer, a financial guru who takes his stretch limo on an odyssey across town to get a haircut.

Robert Pattinson – live in Times Square!
Hundreds of fans lined up overnight to see the star arrive at the Good Morning America studios on Wednesday, but those hoping to hear Pattinson, 26, pour out his broken heart over his long-term girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheating on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders might have walked away somewhat frustrated – and yet still enlightened.
Referring to the cheating scandal as the elephant in the room that could not be avoided, GMA co-anchor George Stephanopoulos pressed Pattinson on the subject, with the actor refusing the bait for as long as he possibly could. (He did, however, take one thing from the anchor: his his favorite cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which Stephanopoulos presented to him at the top of the interview.)
"I've never been interested in selling my personal life," said Pattinson, who said he was there to promote his new movie, Cosmopolis, which opens Friday. Still, the actor acknowledged that his being on TV made him a target for personal questions.
