Tee Hee

After Cool Runnings I not only got sent a lot of similar sports screenplays, but also every family movie being made. It got so bad that at one point I received a script called Amanda. Without reading a word, I picked up the phone and said to my agent: “What kind of animal is it, and what’s wrong with the kid?” There was a long pause before the reply came: “It’s a horse and a brain tumour.”

  1. Immediately came to mind:

    “I killed a panda.”
    “We can sort this out. Her name probably wasn’t really Amanda anyway.”

    Tropic Thunder.

  2. I would just note that Jon Turtletaub, the director of a film about black sportsmen, is white. The film should be withdrawn from all stores and viewing platforms and remade by a black director.
