20. The Classic “Perfect Date” Line Has Special Significance

Every year on April 25, memes appear to commemorate the movie’s precious quote from Miss Rhode Island about the “perfect date,” which she erroneously translates as her preferred day on the calendar instead of her perfect romantic getaway. As it ends up, film writer Marc Lawrence composed the line, however Donald fine-tuned it by altering the date to his own other half’s birthday. 

“I just said, ‘Could it be April 25th? That’s my wife’s birthday,'” the director exposed. “So I’m very happy that each year on her birthday, there are all these memes going about.”

21. Getting the Last Laugh

Donald stated he deliberately consists of additional scenes in early cuts of his movies, simply in case anything pops with audiences that he wasn’t anticipating, so critics are never ever welcomed to those screenings. But, the director kept in mind, movie blog writer Harry Knowles snuck into a test screening and “gave it the most scathing, worst review of any movie ever, including calling me out for having personally ruined Sandy Bullock’s career.”

Luckily, the studio seemed unfazed by the early unfavorable buzz, and eventually the movie was still a hit, earning $212 million around the world from a spending plan of $45 million. “The only thing I can say,” Donald stated, “is that I’m sure glad the movie went on to be a huge success and kind of a classic comedy, earning big bucks, so that I can kind of gently flip my finger at that review and go, ‘Heh, heh!'”
