Thanks for the information!!! A few of the guys at work love Crispin and the ‘What is it’ Movie and are now excited about this!!
Just got back from the second night. Saw “It Is Fine” last night. I used to be a fan, but WOW are the two films garbage. Seriously. Save your money and stay home and watch something better…like a test pattern or the outtakes from a Pauly Shore movie.
If you do go:
Expect Down’s Syndrome “actors” killing snails and Palsy Porn. That seriously describes the respective films.
The Q&A was moronic both nights and he seems to prefer stupid questions about Charlie’s Angels to anything intelligent. Ask him what time it is and sit back and he explains how to build a clock and the life story of everyone that he’s ever know who owned a watch. I’m not kidding: it was PAINFUL.
Book signing: he turns from Mr. Intellectual Breaker of Taboos to a sleazy used car salesman. Not sure if he was ogling my girlfriend or just ignoring me because I didn’t buy his lame books (gosh, sorry I only paid $30 to get in and sat through your cinematic abortions), but in any case he asked her a bunch of questions about “how’d you get here” and “how’d you hear about the movie” like he was channeling his inner telemarketer.
Just a warning.
