rejected pitches

In this installment of the comedic webseries “Rejected Pitches,” produced by Above Average, a bunch of studio suits offer their constructive criticism to Steven Spielberg about his script for E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. Now some of the commentators over on Blastr didn’t find it that funny, but I’ve read enough about the how the inside track of Hollywood works to know the quai-truth when I hear it. Still, it’s kind of hard to believe though that studio suits would talk to Spielberg this way after the one-two-three punch of Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, but sometimes stupidity doesn’t recognize status. Anyway, watch the vid and post your thoughts below.
