Does everybody really love Judd Apatow as much as they are saying these days? I just don’t understand it. I have this feeling that he’s been riding on peoples’ love of his legendary TV show “Freaks & Geeks” for some time now rather than the actual quality of his films.
I also have this feeling that he didn’t have as much to do with “Freaks & Geeks” as we’ve been led to believe. I don’t know; it’s just that I feel that the person who created the characters of Bill Haverchuck and Millie Kentner would be embarrassed by the hamhanded sentimentality of Knocked Up and Superbad.
I’m not even going to approach this latest movie. Maybe he’s just one of those people like Orson Welles who never did anything as good as the first thing he did. I can’t believe I just compared Judd Apatow to Orson Welles. Anyway, I’d like to present you with a scene from Apatow’s Citizen Kane so you can make your own decision.
