Missing The Point TheaterThis has to be one of the greatest quotes ever from a movie executive:
Eddie Murphy bombed with his comedy “Meet Dave,” a 20th Century Fox release that took in just $5.3 million. The movie features Murphy in dual roles as a tiny alien and his spaceship — which is designed to resemble a full-sized human for a visit to Earth.
“It was a tough concept to get across,” 20th Century Fox distribution executive Bert Livingston said of “Meet Dave,” which cost about $55 million to make.
Bert Livingston, you are a mad genius.
