Bad publicity is publicity.

The project sounds like the tropiest of the trope, but they have to make a living and I don't have to watch.

Seriously, I pulled up her Wiki page and literally four entries on her filmography out of the seventeen after Dude, Where's My Car? have a Wiki entry, and one of those only links to the Beethoven movie series page, not an actual movie page. Do you know how bad your movie has to be to not even merit a Wiki page?

As for him...Bob Loblaw, obviously.

I was curious so I looked up her credits.  It's a list of TV movie after TV movie after TV movie for the last several years, with some obscure films and the odd television appearance here or there.  In the few films she's costarring with young actors trying to break out of being television actors or other older actors that themselves had peaked twenty years ago.

There are lots of lousy movies made, sometimes even casting popular actors that might not have realized the turkeys they signed up for.  If the producers designed their productions carefully, minimizing construction costs on-set, minimizing costs for location shooting, keeping the filming schedule short and efficient to keep crew expenditures low, and avoiding expensive post-production costs like gratuitous special effects, then even fairly lousy movies can break even.  Remember, Roger Corman supposedly was profitable for everything he did, because while some of his films are terrible, nothing he did was expensive.

Sin'sHero: Hallmark is desperate enough to cast Scott Baio?


His TV acting credits stop like five years ago, and he hasn't been in a movie in 15 years.

You know, the more I think about this, given that they're pulling the "conservative persecution" card, the more I wonder if there even IS a movie and if they're just making it up to get the sympathy from...somewhere.

I don't doubt there's a movie.  I expect they're going to try to market the movie to Trumpers to go see because how the libs hate them and are trying to suppress their movie.  Donno when filming commenced but COVID-19 is probably farking up their potential box office take pretty badly, and it would not surprise me if this turns out to be a sort of last-gasp for both when it comes to anything beyond TV movies and character-spots on television.

Being a Conservative used to mean you had certain ideas about economic policy, and maybe were a little stodgy on some social issues, all reasonable differences of opinion that could be discussed and debated.

Now being a "Conservative" means you're an avowed member of an death cult being run by a cabal of corrupt con men. You deserve to be ridiculed and ostracized for that.

If politics fit into a four inch slide from D to R, then the current R's are within the last half inch, and Trumpublicans in particular are within the last quarter inch, if that. The middle ground, and even some of the old R ground, has been swallowed up by the vacuum left by the right sliding off the deep end, literally and figuratively.

I think there's a lot of truth to this.  As a result of Trump, the Democrats have , by a Hobson's Choice for sane people, got a huuuuuuge tent covering an enormous spectrum of beliefs.

The last time this happened, there were a few new political parties that popped up.

The film itself, Courting Mom & Dad is produced by Revenge Movies LLC. Baio and Swanson play soon-to-be divorced parents whose children try to stop their split by hiring a personal injury lawyer.

Truly an Oscar contender, ruined by the pernicious liberals of the movie industry.

There are even producers who specialise in quickly making movies around a random location or set that they can get access to. Studio makes a big budget submarine movie and this producer can use the big budget set for a week before it's torn down? He gets a scriptwriter to write a movie in a couple of days that has exactly one weeks worth of scenes in a submarine. Former big name star can be hired for one day for $X? That script will have one days worth of shooting for that character, typically the general back in the Pentagon calling the shots and so on.
They don't start with a script. They start with what they have and write a script to fit that.

Ben Stein was a speechwriter for Richard Nixon before he got into acting.


I didn't know that, which sent me to his Wiki for a few other fun facts:

He was valedictorian of his class at Yale Law.

On May 3, 1976, Time magazine speculated on the possibility of Stein having actually been Deep Throat. Stein responded over the years not only by denying he was Deep Throat but by going further and accusing journalist Bob Woodward of falsifying the famous secret source.

He later claimed that NIxon would have prevented the rise of the Khmer Rouge, which made Mark Felt, Woodward, and Ben Bradlee indirectly responsible for genocide.

"(Nixon) was a peacemaker. He was a lying, conniving, covering up peacemaker. He was not a lying, conniving drug addict like JFK, a lying, conniving war starter like LBJ, a lying, conniving seducer like Clinton-a lying, conniving peacemaker."

He's smart, but he was crazypants from the beginning.

Swanson was apparently incensed that Deadline referred to the film as a "Scott Baio-Kristy Swanson Movie" even though she was not a producer accused of wrongdoing. In two separate tweets, she demanded that Deadline "explain your misleading fake headline." But within entertainment media - especially within headline writing - it's common practice to identify projects with their starriest names. If THR or Variety write about an "Octavia Spencer film", few readers would guess that Ms. Spencer was the sole decision maker on the movie. Swanson calling the headline "misleading" ignores a standard journalistic convention while assuming that readers are stupid.
