My favorite part of the interview is when Lance Hendrickson said, regarding the difference between movies of the 80s and today, “And I feel like the people were more interesting then, now all the
characters are stereotypes trying to be original. If you are writing a
stereotype character, embrace that and have fun. Don’t take yourself
I have a selfish reason for liking this quote; it’s basically the same thing I said about the two ice cream men in Killer Klowns”Most importantly, the movie has those 80s deluxe elements that I never
would have noticed when I was living through the decade, but now make
me nostalgic. The brothers in the ice cream truck are classic 80s
comedy two-dimensional characters who serve only to move the plot
forward when necessary.”
Its good to know that I wasn’t just talking out of my ass and that someone who has more credibility than I do has the same original thought as me. The universal mind never ceases to amaze me.
Overall, reading the interview made me like Summer School even more. If that’s possible.
