You may or may not know that "Movie 43," the movie starring everyone you know and directed by everyone else, was seen by close to no one, making $5 million this weekend and finishing in a tie for sixth place at the box office. Disappointing, to be sure, and as is often the case when your movie is poorly reviewed and makes no money, now comes the 20/20 hindsight backtracking, courtesy of executive producer Peter Farrelly.
As our good buds at CinemaBlend report, Farrelly admits that his stars were pretty much guilted into being in the film. "They clearly wanted out! But we wouldn't let them." His strategy? "Wait for them. Shoot when they want to shoot. Guilt them to death."
Nice! Always how you want to make your movies: Bug the crap out of your stars (including the likes of, oh, Academy Award winner Halle Berry) until they sigh really loudly and finally shout "Fine! »
