Remember when Hot Shots: Part Deux had Saddam talking with a lisp? And with a bikini top tan-line? Those were the good ol' days.


You dusted that one off from the past.

Seth seems like a cool dude not sure why they are friends.

 

Yeah I mean I think he's not very funny in movies but Seth seems like a nice enough dude in interviews and stuff

I dunno. I say good riddance. It was an obvious desperate grasp for relevance using cheap controversy and shock value. What did they expect? Fucking with the craziest dictator in the world seemed like a good idea?? I think apatow is done for. He might have only gotten lucky in the first place. Talentless hack!

 

Apatow isn't attached to this film in any way; it's actually a film directed by Seth/Evan, written by Dan Sterling.  maybe it's just another generational thing, cause i'm a few years younger than most of you guys, but i don't really have any problems with Seth or Franco lol -- didn't realize how many people hated him on here.

 

but i think Rogen's track record is unprecedented, he just seems to involve himself with good film after good film.  i love that his films actually take risks -- but i mean, any comedic concept can become stale and dumb when you break it down so far...i think it's ballsy that they decided to fuck with a real dictator rather than take the safe way out like Sascha Baron-Cohen did with his bullshit dictator movie.

 

great comedies polarize their audiences, and this one damn near sparked a fucking war haha -- i think that's got to be some symbol of success on their part, regardless of whether or not you like it...

Exactly. Now all of a sudden world leaders are above ridicule and satire. Fuck that shit.

Steve Carell's production company was working on a North Korea film and they have now pulled out, halting production.

I suppose the difference between then and now tho is the internet and access to information.


On the other hand, can anyone see a North Korean commrade attacking an American movie theatre? Better safe than sorry I guess.

I wouldn't exactly frame it that way-but I get the tenor of your voiced displeasure.

Hey it was commercials like this that made me a dope DJ. I can recite numerous eighties' commercials from memory. Those penny minded, mind-controllers of the day were dope.

What in the fuck? I legitimately have Asperger's Syndrome, and this is making my fuckin' anti-autism sensors flare up more than any single thing I've ever experienced. For fuck sakes kids, what is your fuckin' issue? You nerdy disgusting fucks! Holy shit... I've never felt like less of an outcast than I have being blown away by the pure dorkiness shown in this video.
