Paparazzi - Is Hollywood serious?

How many people want to see a movie where the hero is the rich movie star and the villain is the poor "little guy"? The movie has been made for movie stars. Ridiculous!

No idea how the movie will be . . .

But the trailer was a laugh riot. So ridiculous, so serious.

I'm interested in seeing it. I don't care how famous or rich someone is, people don't have the right to make their life hell by stalking them to get some photos. Get a real job parasites.

Some paparazi photos are stupid anyways. Just because we see the back of a blonde woman at a table, we are supposed to believe it is so-and-so? Often the photos are nothing special. Does any normal person really want to pay to see a photo of Bette Midler walking through an airport or Chuck Norris eating at Red Lobster. Whooptee friggin' doo!!!
Why not just fake the photos since you often can't tell who it really is? I would. Give someone a red wig and take a fuzzy photo a quarter mile away and there you have an instant Julia Roberts!!! Sure beats climbing her fence and hiding in her trash cans hoping she comes out for her mail.

What I thought was so funny was, this guy is an action movie star apparently. It's not like he's running for Congress or anything. But the press is trying to "dig up the dirt" on him so they can "destroy his career". WTF? Like them taking the pictures of him hitting that guy. So what, Russel Crowe hits people all the time and he's got an Oscar.

Well, yes. That's already been proven.

I laughed when I first saw that trailer too.

The sad thing is, my buddy who writes the films we do has had a script in the works about a stalking paparazzi.. really good too and nothing like this... but thanks to Crazy Uncle Mel, we can pretty much never do it now cuz people will associate it with this stupid, stupid film. Oh well.

Unless they're getting shots of female celebs naked on some beach, paparazzi are worthless!

No matter how silly this flick looks, you guys must admit Tom Sizemore looks like he's gonna nail his role and steal the movie.

Just saw the trailer. Some parts sort of remind me of that South Park episode where the old people don't want to stop driving.

Please. The only thing that would make celebrities complain more than getting their picture taken would be NOT getting their picture taken.
