Part of my job involves criticizing movies and movie stars. I sometimes wonder if they people I criticize read the stuff I write, and if so, how they react. But the object of this exercise is not to piss someone off, but instead to offer a strong opinion. But sometimes, offering a strong opinion can result in hurt feelings.
Scream star Jamie Kennedy knows what it’s like to be criticized. He hasn’t had a good project in years, or may-be even ever (at least if you read the reviews and online forums). Kennedy has chosen to turn the lemons into lemonade. I have to admit, I am really interested in seeing Kennedy’s new documentary. Heckler is about the vocal audience members and online critics, from the side of the actor/celebrity. The most interesting part of the trailer, which can be seen below, involves Kennedy going head to head with the people that have criticized his past unachievements.
The movie features: Louie Anderson, Dave Attell, David Cross, Mike Ditka, Craig Ferguson, Larry Flynt, Judah Friedlander, Tom Green, Jewel, Jon Lovitz, Bill Maher, Howie Mandel, , Andy Milonakis, Drew Pinsky, Paul Rodriguez, Joe Rogan, Eli Roth, Joel Schumacher, Nick Swardson, Mike White, Fred Willard, Harland Williams, Henry Winkler, Rob Zombie and more. Why isn’t Kevin Smith’s name on this list?
Heckler is an official selection of the Tribeca Film Festival.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
