Short Answer (contains a MAJOR SPOILER)
29 November 2007 | by (California, baby!) – See all my reviews

How *did* the American Cinema Group change Hollywood forever?

Short Answer: They were among the first production companies to BUY TIME ON TV to advertise their crappy movies, in addition to having previews in theaters.

Yep. That was their ONLY major contribution to the Hollywood machine--mass-marketing crappy movies to people... in their homes!

I had to sit through a grueling 25 minutes of preening, bragging, glib name-dropping and general rancidness in this documentary before one of the interviewees actually answered the freaking question.

So now I know who to blame for the movie previews shown on TV, thus making commercial breaks excruciatingly longer than necessary. Thanks, American Cinema Group. You guys can rot in hell.
