Kevin Smith did have issues with Bruce Willis on the set of "Cop Out," Kevin Smith didn't have issues with Bruce Willis on the set of "Cop Out." Which one is it? In a 2009 interview, the "Clerks" filmmaker called the action star "undirectable," but later qualified that statement with, "I think somebody took that as negative. It's not like, "Ahh, I can't deal with him!" It's just how do you direct Bruce Willis to play Bruce Willis? I can direct Jason Mewes to play Jay. I can direct Affleck to play a fucking angel — or to kill his career as a grieving father. But I can't fucking tell Bruce Willis how to be Bruce Willis — cause he's fucking Bruce Willis!"

There’s a lot of bad movies released every year. Lots. We are but humans, and we can’t see them all. But someone always does. Sometimes it’s many (“The Twilight Saga”). Sometimes few (“Birdemic: Shock and Terror”). But there’s truly something to be said about the general public’s hunger for art that asks so little of them that they’re probably better off spending their time at home, masturbating or sticking firecrackers up their cat’s ass. Or both at the same time. We don’t judge. Maybe a little.
