Thread: Michael Cera is an unforgiveable douchebag.

  1. #1

    Default Michael Cera is an unforgiveable douchebag.

    What he won't be doing any time soon is a movie version of a certain quirky TV show. He hasn't heard of any plans for an Arrested Development film.

    "I don't think I would want to see a movie of the series if I was a fan, anyway," Cera says. "And I don't really see a need for it if you can get the three seasons on DVD."

    Way to play George Michael years removed from the show, and refuse to do what fans unanimously want.

    Shit head.

    Mitch Hurwitz HAD a plan for a movie, and took the time during the writers strike to pen it.

    To assume, it would be a bad thing to have two more hours of Arrested Development, is absurd.

    I wouldn't want a movie either. Michael do what you must to keep this movie from happening. I think the 3 seasons or however many exist should stay that way.

    They should honestly move forward. Arrested Development should be a closed project, it was successful and ended before getting stale. They should leave it at that. I can't imagine a two hour transition onto the big screen with a larger audience in mind would help the shows spotless image.

    I don't exactly oppose the idea of a full length motion picture either.

    That's not what I'm saying. At all. If they had done a fourth season, it would have most likely been brilliant. I seriously loved that show, and a movie would have been funny, no doubt. I just don't think it would have done the show justice. I think it would have been, ultimately, a disappointment to fans of the show.

    In my opinion, it was just too much of a television show to be adapted well to the big-screen. The camera devices that played such a big part of the role, like the insert shots they did, I just don't think would play as well in a movie theatre. It fit really well into a 30 minute format.

    Agreed. It would be two hours of fan service. However, for a show cancelled, in it's prime, there has been worse tv adaptations. If Hurwitz has a plan for it, I stand by his judgment that it would be great. The majority of audiences would not get it, but fans of the show would love every moment of it. Cera's response, compared to Jason Bateman, or other cast members simply shows that he feels he is too big for the show and the writer who created his one-dimensional acting. That, in essence defines this thread.

    a straight to dvd film would be the best for everyone i guess. it'll definitely be a waste if they show it nation-wide. people who dont know about the show wont have any idea what's going on anyway.

    cera would be a big douche if he really ruined this.

    Really?? Is that purposely because of all the hype, you just decided to avoid it? I do that a lot.

    If it's because it just hasn't happened, you REALLY need to do yourself a favor and rent season one. It's a half hour comedy, so each episode is only 22 minutes on DVD, they breeze by.

    DO IT!!!

    The only thing that is unforgivable is if he didn't motorboat Kat Dennings on the set of their new movie.

    Man does she probably have great looking titties.

    honestly, I hadn't seen a single episode until 3 months ago....everyone I knew always recommended it to me, but I don't really care about TV shows that much, so I figured I'd get to it whenever...

    I caught up with it on Netflix a couple months back, and now I think it is the greatest thing EVER made for television...absolutely brilliant and hilarious

    I really wouldn’t want to see an Arrested Development movie, I just don’t think it would work, it would more than likely get loaded up with cheap cameos to hedge the bet of making a feature length movie based on a low rated TV show. I loved the show and always thought it was ridiculous that so few people seemed to watch it, but lets not forget it was cancelled because no one watched it, why would a studio invest millions a movie like this?

    I also don’t think Michael Cera is a douche for not wanting to do an Arrested Development movie for a couple of reasons. #1 he has been in several successful movies and can probably do just about whatever movie he wants at this point. #2 why would he want to go back a play a character he played for three seasons on TV? Why not challenge himself as an actor? I think its an odd double standard that people get so upset when bands release albums that sounds similar to one another, but then turn around and clamor for actors to reprise roles they have already played, and played well.

    There just isnt enough demand for an Arrested Develpment movie. I realize that you are all fans and you would love it, but most people have never seen the show or dont like it. I think not doing an AD movie adds to the cult following and mystique. I also think that Micheal Cera thinks the show sucks too and has better projects to work on.

    Arrested Development was a good show, but the idea of a movie based on shows like these aren't really a good idea

    I disagree, strangers was decent enough but I rented it. Reno 911 kicked so much ass! But I only saw it once in theaters. and I was on acid.

    but they are a shit ton of Miami jokes in the movie that non-residents wouldnt really get

    Arrested development is a nice little complete package already. It doesn't need two hours of "tying up loose ends". They're tied. Tightly.
