Kevin Smith is No Longer Such a Big Fan of Bruce Willis via Cop Out

No real movie news value here, but I thought it was interesting anyway, especially since I sorta liked Kevin Smith’s “Cop Out”. I mean, it wasn’t exactly the greatest movie ever made or anything, and I don’t go out of my way to tell people “You must see this movie!” or anything like that, but I thought it was reasonably entertaining, and I certainly didn’t get any feeling while watching it that Smith and his star Bruce Willis were, shall we say, not exactly the best of buds during production.

The truth, as it turns out, is very different. Smith recently said this in regards to working with Willis on the movie (via RopeofSilicon/Film Drunk):

It was difficult. I’ve never been involved in a situation like that where, one component is not in the box at all. It was f**kin’ soul crushing. I mean, a lot of people are gonna be like, ‘Oh, you’re just trying to blame the movie on him.’ No, but I had no f**king help from this dude whatsoever.

Again, I didn’t think “Cop Out” was THAT bad, but apparently I might have been the only one. Oh well, live and learn, as they say.

Here’s Smith on the radio last year talking about “bitter” actors. Now that you know how he felt about Willis, just plug in Willis’ name and there you have it:
