    I was actually somewhat shocked that Howard bashed this movie....its been years since he has bashed something out of Hollywood likely for fear he will lose a guest. I am speculating that this has nothing to do with the film and rather that the movie company did not provide any guests. I can guarantee that if Ed Norton was in studio this week we would be told by Howard that its the greatest movie every made about what actors go through in show biz.

    There's a spinoff to the movie called "Wigboy" and chances are he won't like that

    He's mentioned hating it at least four times, there's something behind it, either they didn't give him promo money or someone he hates is getting some cash from it.

    Typically, when Howard hates a movie that can get him an interview, he just doesn't present an opinion on it or he lies about liking it. The OP is right. The only reason for Howard to ever bash a movie is for some weird personal reasons.

    For example, look at the Jim Carrey interview. Howard "couldn't get the movie to work" when he was trying to screen it. He "only saw the first 10-20 minutes" and they were "hilarious." He hated that movie but knew he had to suck some Carrey cock. So his way of dealing with that is to pretend he didn't see it.

    Let's put it in perspective, this is a man who binge watched The Affair, and can watch three hours straight of Bachelor, yet has never seen Curb Your Enthusiasm.....his taste is not to be trusted...

    birdman mirrors all the delusions and insecurities howard has.

    Howard hates anything that resembles any of his weaknesses.

    ha ha! I don't think he has a problem with Norton it's all about Keaton. This goes back to the early 90's. Keaton was part of the group that Howard had hatred for that included Billy Crystal and Robin Williams.

    Remember when he spent a whole summer praising Ashton Kutcher and that steaming pile of shit Spread, it's never about the content with Howard only about the cash and connections.

    It was refreshing to hear him give an actual opinion in years......
    That being said, I'd love to know the reason behind it.

    I can almost see Howard being jealous or resentful that he didn't come up with this movie.

    It seems like something that he would have loved to do but, someone else did it and now he's a bitter old cunt about it.
