Where the fuck has this guy been? I miss him. Three Kings and Flirting With Disaster are two of the best movies ever made without question. Anybody know what he's been up to? He's been gone since 1999, I think I'm ready for another awesome movie. You got anything Macguffin?

These are probably the same people that are watching "Swimfan." Consider the source!

David O'Russell is a fucking asshole- so I've read. There was a lot of bad press on the making of Three Kings- him and George Clooney getting into a fight (almost). He supposedly was very harsh with the extras. When asked if he would ever work with O'Russell again, Clooney replied "Man, life is just too short." Three Kings is a great film though...

but i liked SWIMFAN.  from now on if we wanna make fun of someone for liking bad movies, let's use KANGAROO JACK as an reference.  example:  "man, MAGNOLIA was a piece of shit!  i wish they could make more movies like KANGAROO JACK and THE BANGER SISTERS!"

I certainly question that.

Three Kings had it's moments, but it's far from a great film.

Flirting with disaster was kind of funny, that's about it.

Marky Mark is fucking awesome, as is Clooney. Who do your friends think they are? Mark and Clooney are probably better looking then them AND, more importantly, could probably kick the shit out of them . Especially Mark, that guy is ripped.

Apparently not:

The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie includes a scene in which heat-dazed crooks Jerry O'Connell and Anthony Anderson spot supermodel Estella Warren, playing a wildlife conservationist, standing before them. As the Washington Post's Desson Howe describes it, "Thinking she's a mirage, [O'Connell] clamps both his hands on her breasts and declares, 'Hey, these feel so real!' " There's also a testicle joke, a wet tank-top scene with Warren under a waterfall, a chase sequence with shotgun fire and a scene where a villain puts a knife at O'Connell's throat and snarls, "I'm going to carve you up piece by piece."
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

"Spanking the Monkey" is my personal favorite of the David O. Russell canon. Jeremy Davies is absolutely amazing.

Yeah, I loved that movie.  I thought it was completely erotic, 'cause his Mom was hot.
