Mike Newell's quotes

  • [on making the fourth Harry Potter movie] "I was very anxious to break the franchise out of this goody-two-shoes feel. It's my view that children are violent, dirty, corrupt anarchists. Just adults-in-waiting basically."
  • I don't like the term chick flick. I think it denigrates a movie. It has overtones of talking down to women, like they are second best. We don't call The Last Samurai a guy flick, do we?
  • Romantic comedies are backbreaking to write because they have to be fresh. I've yet to find another one which was surprising enough to do.
