Joe Francis Does Not Like To Be Mocked


I know most of you probably don't have Piranha 3D on your mist see radar so let me tell you about it. Umm, people die by fish who come at you in 3D. I'm guessing probably one or two people are saved. Someone always has to be saved so they can make a sequel.

Anyway, Jerry O'Connell is in the movie and he had been going around saying that his soft porn, underage filming and drinking character was Joe Francis. He has since been told to say that it is a character based very loosely on Joe Francis.

For some reason Joe does not like to be portrayed for who he is so he had his lawyer send a nasty letter to The Weinstein Company who is releasing the film. Apparently his lawyer is concerned about Joe Francis' name and reputation. Seriously? What kind of reputation does the guy have? Is there anyone out there who has something positive to say about him? Is some character in a movie really going to tarnish his image?

Joe even got all high and mighty with The Hollywood Reporter when he said, "I appreciate a good parody as much as the next guy, but to associate me with drugs and the filming of underage girls crosses a definite line." What kind of line does it cross? Why exactly did you go to jail Joe?

Denial! Everyone's doing it. Say it long enough and loud enough and Poof! It's true!!

Oh, Joe isn't worried about his reputation. He's hoping to pout his way into earning some money from it.

Joe, you're a pornographer! Man up about it!

Joe needs to hire (former adult file star) Ron Jeremy as his PR man. At least Ron has a sense of humor.

Patty said...

Because he only drugs and rapes the 18+ crowd??? What a fool.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

@looserdude

HA! Exactly. Ron Jeremy knows what he is known for and embraces it. What can you say about that? Nothing.

i think the next summer blockbuster should be

Denial 3D...starring...

white oprah, francis, blohan, ...oh hell just about everyone in h-wood that we hear about on a daily basis.

it can kind of be a douchbag "we are the world" concept, except they all disappear at the end...

jax said...

isn't Joe a registered sex offender...yet?

Kate said...

I know he was convicted of it, not sure if he legally has to register anywhere that he is a sex offender.

I think he just wants a cut of the $$$ (even though I don't forsee this movie making tons of money).

LOL at delilah. Denial 3D.

KellyLynn said...

Joe just has to tell himself these things so he can sleep at night. Delilah's Denial 3D is right on the money.

That's a good one, Denial 3D!

jagerlilly said...

You know what line it crossed? The line into Truthsville! What a colossal douchebag!

Mooshki said...

Are you kidding?! I have been dying for P3D to come out!!!

Joe is a moron as well as a jackass.

MCH said...

Awesome post....hate this guy SOOOO much.

I LOVE that Jerry said it was based on Joe.

I love even more that Joe Francis thinks that he has standards & an honest/reputable reputation. Hilar.

Piranha 3D will be be best movie of the summer! What could be better than prehistoric fish chewing up everyone who gets in their way? It's certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, so it's gotta be great.

Pookie said...

go jerry! call that mofo out.

RocketQueen said...

The truth. It hurts.

B626 said...

Pirahna 3D will be huge hit because it is not pretending to be anything more than what it is- a bloodsoaked gorefest in 3D!!!
It will put to shame all the other summer blockbusters this season that just weren't.
How can you not love a movie that admits to using 7,000 gallons of fake blood and has the utter GUTS to agree to, no, embrace, an R rating??
Yup I'm taking my kids to this one.

Melody the First said...

@KellyLynn, that would require Joe to have a conscience.

Mark said...

why isn't Douchebag Francis behind bars?
