Schneider Blasts 'Pompous' Movie Critic
The former SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE star has taken out a full-page advertisement in the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER attacking Goldstein's article on 26 January (05), in which he blasted movie studios for making lacklustre sequels like DEUCE BIGALOW: EUROPEAN GIGOLO.
Schneider writes of Goldstein, "Most of the world (has) no idea of your existence.
"Maybe you didn't win a Pulitzer Prize because they haven't invented a category for 'Best Third-Rate, Unfunny Pompous Reporter'.
"I can honestly say that if I sat with your colleagues at a luncheon, afterwards they'd say, 'You know, that Rob Schneider is a pretty intelligent guy' ... whereas, if you sat with my colleagues, after lunch, you would just be beaten beyond recognition."
On gossip website PAGESIX.COM, Goldstein responds, "I haven't received so many congratulatory phone calls since Billy Crystal wrote a letter to the editor comparing me to ROY COHN."07/02/2005 17:54
