Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller Say Every One of Their Movies "Sounded Like a Terrible Idea"

"Everything we’ve ever done has been riding on low expectations. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs? What a terrible idea. Doing 21 Jump Street as a movie is a terrible idea. The LEGO Movie sounds like a terrible idea. If people think [22 Jump Street] is a good idea, we’re screwed."

- Director Chris Miller in an interview with Collider quelling expectations for 22 Jump Street by explaining that all of his and directing partner Phil Lord's movies sound awful on paper.
