Washington, Feb 14 (ANI): Actor Steve Martin has said that the bad reviews he got for his performance in The Pink Panther 2 didnt bother him much, as hes used to receiving harsh words from film critics.
The actor made the comments during a news conference at the Berlin Film Festival, where the film is in competition for the festival’’s prestigious Golden Bear Award.
“I have received bad reviews my whole life. I received bad reviews for my stand-up act, Contactmusic quoted Martin as saying.
He added: The Jerk, one of my most enduring films, was universally panned and criticized in America. Comedians always have to overcome critical snobbery, that’’s just the way it is. … Comedy is just not a critic’’s medium.”
The Pink Panther is now playing in 3,245 theatres, more than any other film, but it averaged only 109 dollars at each of them on February 11, suggesting that many theatres may be running it with no one in the seats. (ANI)
