" So we put it into motion and got Jennifer Lopez, and it was quite the coup. There are five minutes left till the end of the world - what do you do? This is goddamn awful." There isn't one that leaps to mind. A Man For All Seasons is my all-time favourite movie because it's like pornography for people who love language.
But he didn't express an interest in her romantically, or anything. It's just so chock-a-block with wonderful dialogue.
Think of your twenties as a carousel in which you are leaping from beautifully adorned filly to filly as A Tribe Called Quest plays on the calliope.
FYI, your thirties are some ride where everyone throws up and they have to hose everything down before you get on.
Jaws because it's so utterly watchable, over and over again.
It's a movie that really made pluses of its deficits, because I mean the shark didn't work and they couldn't show it a lot, and it's a better movie because they couldn't show it. Jersey Girl is released in UK cinemas on Friday 18th June 2004.
He talks in typically forthright fashion about his career to date... Because I wasn't much good at anything else, and oddly enough I'm not very good at this - but nobody seems to notice, so I get away with it. I got through about 20 minutes of that and I couldn't take it any more. He goes "I'm Doctor Rosenrosen", and then he goes through a couple of variations of Rosen - I think he says "Rosenpenis" at one point. Who's the most famous person in your contacts book? So now, if somebody said, "Would you have cast them in your movie after Gigli, knowing what Gigli was? But most people ask under the assumption that I saw Gigli and thought that it would be a really good idea to put those two in another movie together. Who's the biggest pain in the arse you've ever worked with? And we were all trapped out in Pittsburgh shooting this movie, which is the middle of nowhere, so whenever people had a few days off they would ask if they could go to New York, or back to Los Angeles, or elsewhere. But I do like sitting there and watching with an audience, because you get a feel for what works and what doesn't work, particularly if you're working with a comedy - so much so that you don't really need the cards.
I'm not really a strong visual stylist and that's kind of called for in the job description, because it is all about putting visuals together, and I'm not really I interested in that. And I'm a huge John Goodman fan, so that's saying a lot. The most famous person would have to be either [Ben] Affleck, or Jennifer Lopez at this point, right? I always said "sure", because why would I want to make anybody sit in Pittsburgh if they've got something else to do? Only inasmuch as it's great to watch the movie with an audience. The cards muck up the process, and when they start breaking it down into percentages and whatnot, that's when the movie starts to suffer. You're just a filmmaker who hasn't made a film yet." At first I thought, "What the **** is she talking about? Suddenly, from that point onwards, I was like, "I am a filmmaker.
Subsequent movies include Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, and now Jersey Girl. I might have to reach very far back for this and say The Flintstones. You know, I guess that would be "Doctor Rosenrosen" - that's from Fletch. " And the answer to that is: Gigli wasn't Gigli when we cast them. When we were making Dogma, the cast was working in a favoured nations type of affair where everyone was getting paid the same - scale, which is the minimum wage for the movie business.
