HERBIE: FULLY LOADED (2005)
The 2000’s didn’t really do much for Keaton, who got a bit lost in the Hollywood machine. Voice work on King of the Hill or the odd appearance on shows like Frasier were coupled with non-entity projects barely anyone saw; 2003’s Quicksand with Michael Caine, 2004’s First Daughter alongside Katie Holmes, 2005’s creepy but unremarkable chiller White Noise, culminating in 2005’s Herbie: Fully Loaded opposite Lindsay Lohan. Oh how the mighty Bat had fallen.
Keaton did try his hand at other things, such as 2007’s espionage mini-series The Company alongside Alfred Molina & Chris “I could have been your Robin” O’Donnell, and he even directed as well as starred in 2008’s The Merry Gentlemen, but again the A-list seemed to have eluded him.
