MY YEAR THAT WAS

Posted on

”If I could, I would have spaced everything out more this year. I left How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying to do The Cable Guy for three months, then went back [to Broadway]. During this time I was editing Infinity, a film I directed [about a physicist]. Then, for the first time in many years, I had a fairly long vacation — five weeks. Then I came back and did Addicted to Love with Meg Ryan [in theaters next April]. How to Succeed and getting Infinity finished were two big milestones. But there was a huge amount of care put into Infinity, and I don’t think it got a fair look. I wish there had been more money to advertise it. I was very disappointed. I enjoyed doing Cable Guy, but it didn’t depend on me at all. I knew going in it was a Jim Carrey movie. I was surprised at the backlash against Jim. But that seems to go with success.”
