You just can't make any movie and it will be good now. This is a really a difficult time to be in films.
We felt like we had done as much as you can do with the slasher genre. We were trying to find the next group of scary movies that were ripe for parody.
I always prefer the big laugh. That is always the objective, especially with a film like Scary Movie 2.
Just making a good movie is hard to do.
There are two phases to a movie. First you shoot the movie, and then you make the movie. Generally, post-production is longer than filming.
We've seen so many films now, that you have to be on par with the best films that have preceded you. You just can't make any movie and it will be good.
You never really know until you put the movie in front of an audience. I am a big advocate of screenings, which are getting harder and harder to do nowadays.
