Personal Quote:

There's no difference between a tacky Jew from Miami and a rap star. They both want the Cadillac and the Rolex with the diamonds. See more »

Trivia:

Friends with Pierce Brosnan, who wanted Ratner to direct an unspecified 007 film (from the time period involved, the film in question was almost certainly "Die Another Day") but the Broccolis immediately told Brosnan they didn't like Ratner's films and would not consider him to EVER direct a James Bond film. Brosnan took on a co-lead role in Ratner's project "After the Sunset" instead. See more »
