I am Sam

2001 – Howard’s goofed on this movie theme, and the actors who take these roles of the retarded assuming they’ll be a shoe-in for an Academy Award.  Howard keeps telling Hollywood to give him a chance at a retarded role–he could do it as well as anybody.  The guys cut up a tape of Howard playing a retard and made it into a movie preview, saying he was as good as Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump.  When Tropic Thunder came out, there was that line about not going “full retard” – a direct response to Sean Penn not winning the Oscar after doing this movie.  Howard didn’t like this one, thought it was too predictable and Sean Penn was laughable.
