Steve Martin "I Have Received Bad Reviews My Whole Life"

Steve Martin has insisted that he was unfazed by the blistering reviews he received last week for his performance in The Pink Panther 2 . Appearing at a news conference at the Berlin Film Festival, where the film is in competition for the festival's prestigious Golden Bear Award, Martin said, "I have received bad reviews my whole life. I received bad reviews for my stand-up act. The Jerk, one of my most enduring films, was universally panned and criticized in America. Comedians always have to overcome critical snobbery, that's just the way it is. ... Comedy is just not a critic's medium." Overcoming critical reaction may be one thing, but The Pink Panther , now playing in more theaters than any other film -- 3,245 -- averaged only $109 at each of them on Wednesday, suggesting that many theaters may be running it with no one in the seats.
