The Hangover, Part II director Todd Phillips likes, I think, Hollywood Elsewhere (he’s told me this at least) and doesn’t particularly like Movie City News and/or David Poland‘s stuff. I’m sure sooner or later I’ll run into an actor or director or producer who doesn’t care for me or my views so there but for the grace of God, etc. Still, this is funny:

I’ve only been able to listen to 70% of this, but a partial transcript provided by Film Drunk is, to my comprehension, at least partly accurate (and it may be entirely so). All comments are from Phillips.

“Let’s do it. It’s going to be aggressive because I’m not a fan of Poland’s or the site.”

“I will say, having read your site here and there, you might be the worst box-office prognosticator on the planet Earth, let alone that has a website. Literally. You are wrong 99% of the time.”

“You have this bizarre attitude that you know things about the business.”

“And I’m only talking numbers because I know you love to talk numbers on your site, but you are out-of-control wrong all the time.”

“Yes, there is a bit of revenge in making the movie, particularly with people like you.”

“Yes, sure I think this movie is going to do well overseas, but more specifically, I think I remember you telling me before the [Hangover One press tour] interview started, saying, you know, ‘Warner Brothers has this idea that your movie’s going to do $100 million, and no offense, it’s a good movie, but I see it topping out at $60 or $70, but there is a limit on an R-rated comedy with no stars…’

“And, you went on to tell me, ‘and by the way, I saw Land of the Lost, and it’s a pretty good movie…’ and you started telling me how brilliant Land of the Lost was. Which I didn’t like, and I love Will Ferrell and I love Brad Silverman, I’m not being a hater — and you trying to antagonize me saying it was a bad idea to open against Land of the Lost. Cut to, we do $45 million on the weekend. You thought we were going to do $60 total.”

“You told me to my face, and I was okay with it, that Land of the Lost was a superior film. And I defy you to find three people that agree with you on that.”

“I did visit your site the other day, and I don’t know what you did, but it looks horrible. What happened?”
