Rotten Tomatoes: Movies

After years of playing quirky adolescents and eclectic youths, actor Tobey Maguire established himself as an international box office star when he landed the role of a certain web-slinging superhero. As the star of director Sam Raimi's comic book blockbuster "Spider-Man" (2002) and its subsequent sequels, Maguire personified to perfection the gangly awkwardness of Spidey's alter ego, Peter Parker. Prior to his international stardom, Maguire made his first lasting impression in "The Ice Storm" (1997), Ang Lee's excellent meditation on suburban angst in the 1970s. He next helped add some color to the black-and-white world of the 1950s in Gary Ross' "Pleasantville" (1998) before delivering a solid dramatic performance as the protagonist of "The Cider House Rules" (1999), opposite Michael Caine and Charlize Theron. Following another solid dramatic performance in the adaptation of Michael Chabon's "Wonder Boys" (2000), Maguire started to branch out into producing; most notably with the Spike Lee thriller "25th Hour" (2002) and "Seabiscuit" (2003), for which he served as both executive producer and star. By the time he earned serious award recognition for his performance in "Brothers" (2009), Maguire had become a multifaceted Hollywood presence whose potential seemed limitless.
