Oh, That Rob Schneider: 5.22

Received this from an assistant-type associate of mine and thought it was funny, so I thought I'd share. The assistant swears he doesn't know who wrote it, but is sure someone on the crew did. According to my source, this sums up a lot of people's feelings about the moviemaking experience on this particular set. In addition, the writing is way too well-done to be the whim of some outsider-- way too much intention here for that.

At any rate, my source pointed me to this comment, which popped up on the IMDB message board for "Big Stan" (see: Whew, It's Done) and since if I give you the link, you'll just have to login and that's annoying. Thus, I'll reprint it here, free and easy for all to see. (subliminal message: go open source, biyotches)

"We wrapped the movie early this morning in Stockton and we're all relieved it's over. Without giving too much away, it goes like this: Once upon a time, there lived a tiny, insecure man who learned the only way he could make his enormous ego feel comfortable in his teeny, tiny body was to embarrass, humiliate, and torture others. He thought he was a master of disguise, fooling others into believing he was a big man. Yet he was only fooling himself, and through time his unconscienable (sic) behavior repulsed and repelled everyone. If his heart was three or three-hundred sizes too small, it didn't matter by then because no one was around to even care...

Rob Schneider plays the part perfectly."

You want to know the really sad thing about this IMDB post?
Rob Schneider would be considered a pretty decent guy to work for, by Hollywood's whack standards.
