Quote of the day
Rob Reiner


"Hollywood make three types of movies and if you don't make one of those three, you have to find independent financing: It's either big action superhero tent-pole thing or it's an animated film or it's an R-rated, raunchy sex comedy. They don't make movies about real people."
