"I'll be the first to admit I have not been as wise with my decision making as I should have been. I wasn't really methodical about, like, 'What is this movie? What are we making here?'"
Take "R.I.P.D.," for example: "Is this a popcorn, bubble-gum romp? Is this a slightly subversive take on zombie culture? It was more like, 'Whoa, cool, Jeff Bridges! And there's some jokes in there that really work for me.'"
--Sarah Silverman, who has her first dramatic lead playing a depressed mother in the Sundance film "I Smile Back."
"Watching Notaro and Allynne interact makes you feel tingly and kind of jealous, like when you witness a couple exchange vows or see their baby for the first time. When Allynne speaks, you can see Notaro hanging on every word. There’s a huge grin, a twinkle in her eye, an ease with laughter. Occasionally, she reaches out to stroke Allynne’s Rapunzel-esque mane of red curls."
“The young guests treat me with great respect,” Larry said. “Rappers love me. I don’t understand it.”
“They love you!” Shawn interjected. “They say ‘Larry’s dope.’ ”
“Why? I don’t understand anything they’re doing. I drive along with my boys, and they listen to rap music, and I say, ‘What are they saying here? I don’t understand.’ They know all the lyrics.”
