Chili Palmer (John Travolta) changes his career from being a gangster to a movie producer. Then he wants to go into the music industry.

The Rock plays a gay Samoan bodyguard named Elliot, who aspires to be an actor.

2. Gridiron Gang (2006)

According to many in the thread, the probation officer’s role, Sean Porter, fits the Rock perfectly. Porter decides to turn the inmates he is in charge of into a football team to give them a sense of self-respect and responsibility. However, he faces opposition from high-school coaches who don’t want their players playing against criminals.

3. Moana (2016)

Many noted that the Disney movie Moana is loved by kids, teenagers, and adults alike. The animation is excellent. The story is great. The songs are magnificent.

4. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle‬ (2017)

6. The Other Guys (2010)
