Universal Studios President: “We Make a Lot of S#!?&y Movies.”

Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

In a moment of strange honesty, Ron Meyer, President and Chief Operating Officer of Universal Studios not only admitted but declared that Universal Studios has made some real duds. Among a number of movies, he has harsh words for Cowboys & Aliens.

Wasn’t good enough. Forget all the smart people involved in it, it wasn’t good enough. All those little creatures bouncing around were crappy. I think it was a mediocre movie.

Wow. It’s not that we disagree, it’s just that… Look how sad he made Daniel Craig.

Much to our amusement, Meyer didn’t stop with C&A. Land of the Lost?

Just crap. I mean, there was no excuse for it.

But what about something less recent, like The Wolfman? Babe 2?

One of the worst movies we ever made…Wolfman and Babe 2 are two of the shittiest movies we put out. The script never got right…the director was wrong. Benicio [del Toro] stunk. It all stunk.

Well, you’ve still got Bridesmaids, right?
