So at the end of the film I got up, and I was terribly British, I said, ‘So, who kind of liked the movie?’ And about a third of them put up their hands, and I thought, ‘Oh shit.’ So I said, ‘OK, who kind of didn’t like it?’ Two people. And I said, ‘Well, what else is there?’ And a guy in the front said, ‘Ask who really liked the movie.’ So I did, and they all put up their hands. And I thought, ‘Thank you, God.’
