Hey, remember “R.I.P.D.“? Yeah, we’re trying not to remember, either. And we’re not alone: one of the key actors in the movie would rather move on as well.
Actor Jeff Bridges played undead Western gunslinger Roy Pulsipher in Universal Pictures and director Robert Schwentke’s critically-mauled “R.I.P.D.,” currently sporting a 13 percent “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes.com. Bridges didn’t write a review, but if he had, it would probably log on the review aggregator under the “rotten” column, based on what he just told GQ Magazine.
“I had such a great time working on that movie,” he said. “I remember what we were doing. I thought: this could be fun to see. And when I saw it, I was a little underwhelmed. For my mind, the studio made some, uh, choices that I wouldn’t have made.”
Asked if he was able to allow the movie to “fully suck,” Bridges returned a delightful answer, “It’s kind of fun when the movie’s coming out. It’s like having a horse in the race. And they’re lining up, and they’re off! And you’re rooting for your horse. And in this case, the jockey fell off the horse and you came in last. Ha ha ha. You know. That happens sometimes.”
It sure does, Jeff. It sure does.
