Amy Pascal Did Not Enjoy the Movie ‘Aloha’

Screenshot (1107)After a 2014 hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s database, the former  Chairperson of the Motion Pictures Group Amy Pascal became known for her poetic (“It never/Not even once/ever works”) style of email communication. Following unsuccessful test screenings of the film Aloha, she expressed her disappointment and frustration at producer Scott Rudin, who didn’t once go to set, or help in the editing room, or fix the script. 

“Scores same as last time and
Way way worse in ny
It’s a wrap
There is no more to do
Cameron really never changed anything
People don’t like people in movies who flirt with married people or
married people who flirt
The satellite makes no sense
The gate makes no sense
I’m never starting a movie again where the script is ridiculous
And we al know it
I don’t care how much I love the director and actors
It never
Not even once
ever works

As much as I want movies
This is way worse
At least the marketing departments at both studios have something to sell
like looks big and glossy
We have this movie in for a lot of dough and we better look at that
Scott didn’t once go to the set
Or help us in the editing room
Or fix the script.”
