Franco once mentioned in an interview that the idea for this film came when Jonah Hill was dating Dustin Hoffman's daughter. He planned to vacation with Hoffman and his family and he was terrified that Hoffman would not like him. Thus came the idea for the film See more »
The first night at Laird's house, "Smoked California Bear" is served for dinner but later in the film Laird says that everything served is from within 500 yards of the house. While he has a lot of animals on the properly, odds are that he doesn't have any bears. See more »
Why him? I tell you why, because I can't think of any other actor who can transform this this cinematic excrement into a gourmet dish. There is a matteroffactness in his character that lives somewhere between Rupert Pumpkin and Howard Hughes, the thing is that the life James Franco gives to his character is absolutely real. The film could have turned into a horror thriller, because Franco forces you, in the most entertaining way, to feel slightly off-balance. That alone keeps you glued to it in spite of the moronic lack of ideas. Bryan Cranston, of course, is sheer perfection. Reacting hilariously to the absurdity with infinite generosity - A trait of great actors - I wish them a Billy Wilder next time or a Preston Sturges or...you know. Fearless originals just like Franco and Cranston.
