Will Ferrell, Judd Apatow, Jason Statham, and especially Dane Cook:
STOP MAKING MOVIES.
Por favor. Per favore. Give us us free.
Ever heard of something called overexposure? Sometimes, you gotta stop kidding yourself and realize the truth: that you can be exceptional…in infrequent doses. You don’t ever want to wear out your theatrical welcome.
I mean, Will Ferrell had the industry by it’s cinematic balls after he made Talladega Nights, but did he stop there and chill out for a minute? Naw playa. Not even close. He just came out with a couple of duds (Blades of Glory and Semi-Pro). His only saving grace was Stranger Than Fiction, which, ironically enough was the most serious movie he’s ever done. The more I see him, the less funny I think he is. Chill out for a minute Mr. Ferrell and make people want to see you again. I guess it’s cool, it’s kosher if you make more movies…but not yet…not yet…
Jason Statham…please stop making action movies. Death Race? Really? Just give it a rest. You’re the British Vin Diesel…and that ain’t a compliment. You are a charismatic supporting actor…but a lead action star you are not.
Don’t even get me started on Dane Cook. He starred (more like crapped) in Good Luck Chuck (aka Good Luck Suck). Good Luck Chuck! It got a 3% on Rotten Tomatoes! I will never get back those 101 minutes of my life. Dane Cook…listen to me buddy…and listen to me good: stick to stand-up (which I’m not a big fan of either). You belong in movies as much as Michael Vick belongs at the Westminster Dog Show (low blow…I know…even by my deplorable standards).
Sometimes, you gotta “know your role”, as The Rock used to say all the time.
Judd Apatow has made some classic comedies over the past few years. But, in my opinion, the last few have showed signs of regression. He has a good thing going with his obscene comedies…but he better be careful to not inundate his audiences with bland, unoriginal humor like that exhibited in Pineapple Express.
These Hollywood folks need to realize the damage they are doing to the art of making movies. Don’t just churn out movies to make money. Although I can’t say that I would heed my own advice if I was in their positions. If I could release some cookie-cutter movie that I knew would make 50+ million dollars regardless of the quality of its content, who’s to say I wouldn’t? Alls I’m saying is think of the craft. Ya gotta keep the standards high.
