Balls of Fury (2005) (pre-production) (written by)

Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005) (post-production)

The Pacifier (2005) (written by)

Taxi (2004/I) (screenplay)
... aka Taxi N.Y.C. (France)

Tom is a terrible writer. Anyone remember Viva Variety?

The State and Reno 911! have been flooks.

Whoops I meant flukes ...

However, according to dictionary.com, a flook is: A parasitic trematode worm of several species, having a flat, lanceolate body and two suckers.

I stand by my original statement: The State and Reno 911! have been flooks.

This comes to my point -- I honestly don't find any of them funny.

Have you ever seen TAXI? I sadly admit... that I have with my EX boyfriend. If Herbie: Fully Loaded is a box-office hit, I will chop my head off.

I was so torn when taxi came out, I love Queen Latifia, but i hate taxi cabs, it was such a delema...but in the end, i decided not to piss her subjects off, so I bit the bullet...I've made enemies with enough countries already.

Tom Lennon

A friend of mine once met Tom Lennon at a concert. In addition to being a bad writer, it's evident that he's also a dick.

By the way, smilies are for morons.

It's pretty funny, but I think COPS is funnier.

Patton Oswalt, as quoted on ast.com, weighs in on the matter--

Quote:
Lennon and Garant probably wrote THE PACIFIER 'cuz whatever movie studio made it backed a dump truck full of money up to their respective houses. They're both writing machines (they've got two more movies coming out this year) and since it obviously doesn't eat up much of their time (they're filming two more seasons of RENO 911! as I write this) why shouldn't they? Would you respect them more if they worked low-paying, menial jobs until the stuff they really want to do gets made? Do you think Charlie Kaufman stinks 'cuz he wrote on NED AND STACY to pay the bills?

I understand where you're coming from. I used to feel the same way you do. Until I went through three script deals with three different movie studios -- none of which got made. I had no idea how difficult it was to get a fucking movie through the studio system. I have two other scripts in development right now, only this time, I realize I'm playing the Scratch 'n' Win lottery.

What's really tragic is, if a movie studio offered me big bucks to write PACIFIER II: LEGEND'S OF PACI'S GOLD. (In the last three years I've been brought in to discuss writing a ROCKY HORROR sequel, a MUNSTERS movie*, and a live action YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS).

PACIFIER II? I'd probaly take it. And not even for the money. Here's why: in the twisted logic of the movie studios, if you can write a crowd-pleasing, goofy comedy like that, they're more apt to look at your OTHER work -- the stuff you really want to do. It's sick, and it's frustrating, but they're the conditions that prevail. You can spout theory, integrity and what "should" be all you want on a message board.

Then there's reality. Toodles!
Personally, I saw maybe one or two eps of Reno 911 in the first season and never saw the State (though Wet Hot American Summer I wholly endorse) so I have no basis for any opinion whatsoever on this person. But I did hear from a reliable source that he's a gay vampire (is there any other kind???)
