So, this happened. When asking Cuba Gooding Jr. what scary movie made him scream (we were at the Scream Awards, after all) he responded by making fun of Boat Trip, a comedy flop he made in 2003 that currently has a 7% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Yes, it’s terrible, and even Cuba knows it. The Oscar winner was accompanied by his Red Tails co-stars Nate Parker and Elijah Kelley, and his answer made everyone in the entire room go nuts with laughter. Everyone, that is, but Red Tails writer/producer/Hollywood mega-legend George Lucas.
Guys, George Lucas was there!
I should add, the entire crew spoke passionately about their work on Red Tails, which tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen of World War II. Check out the trailer and go see it. And maybe give Boat Trip a rent, too. For Cuba’s sake.
