Jay Roach Quotes and Sayings

commentary and then when you get to hear another filmmaker
talk about their films it's a really great experience.

To top that sequel was quite a task.

the hardest about is that first test screening audience

its own momentum and will carry into the video release.

and the David Fincher commentaries.

with material and I'm confident Mike can,
I'm in.

But I also want to keep going in some of the direction as Meet the Parents has.
- Jay Roach

The commentary track became a lot like the movie and there are some funny,
long, awkward pauses that you can tell we're just trying to find stuff to say.

until that moment and they were in New York and we were in L.A.
- Jay Roach

I hope we're all kind of influencing each other now
to keep the quality up on those things.
They seem to be getting better and better and better
as there's not only sort of a film geek audience,
there's also a general interest in the overall film consuming population.

I will protect them and make sure that they have approval
over every bit of it so that they know I won't show
something that's embarrassing.

anything that would actually contribute to the understanding of how a film gets made.

in a movie and like that better than worrying about
showing the tricks behind the curtain.

which had a commentary track that wasn't even the filmmakers,
it was a professor, some film criticism guy who just
happen to be this amazing commentator who went off
into the whole theory of comedy.

My biggest role as director on the film is keeping
a sense of the overview -
how to cast the movie and shoot it in such a way that it will cut together.
And how to design the style and tone.
- Jay Roach

On the other track I got to talk with Jon Poll,
my editor, and we go into more detail about the decisions
we made in both the production and the post-production.

It's an addiction and it's probably dysfunctional,

of people losing control of themselves.

That struggle to maintain composure becomes part of the joy of the scene.
- Jay Roach

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

find an ample measure of my own joy.
