Movie Quotes

“Did you know Tom Cruise had no idea he was in that vampire move till two years later?” – Bowfinger 
“White boys always get the Oscar. It’s a known fact. Did I ever get a nomination? No! You know why? Cause I hadn’t played any of them slave roles, and get my ass whipped. That’s how you get the nomination. A black dude who plays a slave that gets his ass whipped gets the nomination, a white guy who plays an idiot gets the Oscar. That’s what I need, I need to play a retarded slave, then I’ll get the Oscar.” – Kit

“Would you be willing to cut your hair?” – Bowfinger
“Well, yeah, but it would probably be better if someone else did it. I’ve had a few… accidents.” – Jiff

“Do you have any experience in motion pictures?” – Bowfinger
“Uh, well, quite a bit, actually, I have quite a bit of experience. I’m an active, uh, renter at Blockbuster, and I , um, attend the filmed cinema, uh, as much as possible, weekly, bi-weekly, inter-week… intermediately.” – Jiff
