1. I would argue—I’ll probably catch a lot of shit for this—that making a mainstream comedy is much more difficult than making an art film. That audience, the critical audience and the art house audience, it’s much easier at this point in my career to know exactly what they want and exactly what they would respond to, what kind of camera stuff they consider to be exciting or beautiful or whatever else. In terms of putting a movie in a multiplex and trying to make America laugh, I have no idea what they want. That’s a real challenge for me. But I didn’t know how big Drinking Buddies would be. It was a conscious effort to try and expand that and reach people, but I didn’t know that I would get these actors and that the movie would have the ability to reach so many people.
