But the clip is hilarious and it only makes me wonder why Ron Howard doesn’t make more comedies. I would liike him much more as a filmmaker if he injected some humor into his stories again. Actually, he’s only made three out and out comedies: Parenthood, Splash, and EdTv. EdTV is probably why he hasn’t made a comedy in over a decade, but anyone watching his endorsement of Barack Obama would find it humorous, strange, endearing with the right mix of comedy and gravitas.
Here’s a decent interview with the director on how the video above fell into place.
