Ricky Gervais finds an unlikely foe in Judd Apatow

Jan. 24, 2011by: Paul Tassi

The Golden Globes are eons away now, yet somehow people are still talking about Ricky Gervais' controversial performance as host where he made fun of celebrities...like every other host does. He was just better at it.

There's been much back and forth about whether he went to far, but most of the actors targeted have come out and said that Gervais was just being a card, and it wasn't anything to get upset over.

But now there's a new critic of the performance that really caught me off guard. Judd Apatow recently hosted the Producer's Guild Awards this weekend and had a lot of unkind things to say himself about Gervais and his jokes.

“What did you think of Ricky Gervais?” he asked the black-tie industry crowd Saturday night. “I didn’t like him. I thought he was mean.”

“He had that joke about the guy on Lost,” said Apatow. “He said he ate everybody else. Let’s be honest -- Ricky Gervais just lost weight. Even now he’s four pounds away from not being allowed to do a joke like that. Did he lose weight just to make fat jokes? You think that’s how mean he is?"

"(Gervais) says the characters (in The Tourist) were two-dimensional,” said Apatow. “Then he says he hasn’t seenThe Tourist. So as a comedian, that’s not fair, is it? To make jokes about a movie you haven’t seen. "I can’t do a joke about (Gervais’s movie) The Invention of Lying because I haven’t seen it. You haven’t seen it. None of us have seen it. So the joke would not work.”

These are all jokes I guess, despite the fact they're not terribly funny, but then things get a bit weirder:

"(Gervais) made a joke about Tim Allen who was standing next to Tom Hanks," said Apatow. "Who looks good standing next to Tom Hanks? We all look like a piece of shit standing next toTom Hanks. Warren Buffet would look like a piece of shit next to Tom Hanks."

"Tim Allen did 200 episodes of Home Improvement. He was in three of the highest grossing movies of all time. And his latest just crossed the one billion mark. Whereas The Invention Of Lying made $18 million dollars worldwide...Leave Tim Allen alone.”

What the? That's not even a joke, that's just being a Tim Allen fanboy, who has himself said he didn't care about Gervais' jab. I get that Gervais is topical right now, but Apatow sounds genuinely upset with him. 

Who would have thought Judd Apatow, king of the modern era of raunchy comedy would have a problem with Gervais being "mean"? What do you guys make of this?

Sounds like an idiot...

He's taking the jokes so far out of context that I can't imagine he isn't being hypocritical in his critique. The point of the Tim Allen joke was simply the contrast between Hank's career and Allen's. No bigger deal than that. I'm sure Gervais would take a joke about his films or appearance or personality in a heartbeat... regardless, you either liked the tone of the jokes or didn't. Breaking them down like this is just f-ing stupid.

Ricky Gervais did a terrific job hosting and his jokes, no matter how mean and honest they were, were hilarious.

I respect Apatow and think he is funny and talented and is a good film [link] He just needs to calm down.

Regarding the extra tidbit, I agree on all accounts. The movie is hilarious and should get more recognition.

Cunt o' the week?

I don't see many actual jokes in there. It's not observational humour, it's just... observation. I presume that on his autocue it just had "And then Seth Rogen says something funny and ad-libbed", like it does throughout most of the script for Funny People. You don't make Funny People and then mock The Invention of Lying, you self-indulgent twazzock.

Because box-office gross is a measure of quality? I mean in this case he's referring to the Toy Story movies, but I hate when BO is used as quality meter. Hey Judd, Funny People didn't do too well either.

Gervais roasted the stars at the golden globe. It's not like this was a surprise - and people are still talking about it; which means the golden globes should be happy, as this marks the first time in history that people talked about the golden globes.

Apatow is the more successful film-maker, but the hype cycle on his personal style of comedies is on the downswing. He's pretty much the next Ivan Reitman... or Judd Apatow.

He made Ghost Town a completely enjoyable affair, and the Invention of Lying was horribly misconstrued as some sort of laugh out loud rom-com when in reality it's an extension of what he's done with Extras and the Office, only this time he takes on religion. I also recommend his flick Cemetery Junction.

Ricky was making fat jokes long before he lost weight, and he was always one to own up to his own shortcomings. Now he's in shape (something the Apatow crew wouldn't know much about). Judd saying he lost weight "just to make fat jokes" is moronic at best.

The attitude celebrities have about themselves is so ridiculous, there's crazy violence all over the world every day, and they're crying because Ricky made fun of some of them, as if they were some sort of demi-god incarnate or God's gift

Let me fill you actor blow-hards in on something: you are not special. You make a lot of money because WE are willing to pay a lot of money to be entertained. If you can't take a joke about your cushy lifestyle you can expect us to stop buying tickets.

Meh.

Every once in a while, Hollywood is the butt of a joke that they just don't get. What's funny is that every working-class non-celebrity in the world is on Gervais' side here. The world knows that these people get paid millions pretty much to be themselves only at the expense of a private life. Watch Gervais' "Extras" and it's quite clear just what he thinks of celebrity; that they're just people who get lucky to be paid for doing something truly trivial. The world outside hollywood agrees with

BTW - Invention of Lying was subtle? Brilliant and clever and ballsy, but it sure didn't feel subtle to me!

The way I see this. If we shouldnt make too much of Gervais' mean jokes, the same should be done with Apatow's. He was simply playing the game and [probably] pretending to mad. I dont think its a big deal.

Well

I do like Gervais but agree that his joke about the Lost dude was in poor taste..."Hey lets make fun of fat people!"...Isn't that a bit high school? The other joke I thought was lame was bringing up Robert Downey Jr's past drug problems. That was like 6-7 years ago, man. He's been clean for longer than Gervais has sustained a TV series. Can't we let Downey move on? Can't we celebrate that he's clean and kicking ass in movies now, instead of joking about drug addiction? Surely there are other

"...hasn't seen The Tourist..."

"...So as a comedian, thats not fair, is it? To make jokes about a movie you havent seen. I cant do a joke about (Gervaiss movie) The Invention of Lying because I havent seen it. You havent seen it. None of us have seen it. So the joke would not work.

Oh, see what he did there? Christ, Gervais didn't even make fun of Apatow at the Globes and he's still bitching. Get over it, man.

Shut the fuck up, Apatow

Oh man, I hate this guy. He made a god-like TV show a decade ago, that probably would have turned into sappy garbage had it had the chance to swim, and ONE decent movie. Nothing but an overrated hack. He'll never be in the same league as Gervais.

I'm really not too upset over this though. I think it's hilarious that he's acting all whiny and catty. What a bitch.

I was entertained by a lot of Gervais' jokes, but I can understand the issue taken with his hosting job. Yes he's a comedian, but so are most award hosts; I've never seen one so tough on his subjects.

That said, it wasn't that big of a deal. Not deserving of so much attention at a seperate show from another host. If he thought it was mean, make one JOKE about it, don't indulge your opinions at that kind of length.

Apatow sounds so desperate for being liked and stuff, and other than that, he has no business ringing in on the Gervais jokes. I mean, Ricky could've said " And here is Adam Sandlers roomate with such hits as Fun With Dick and Jane and the so called Funny People". Over it. Go away Apatow. You lost your funnybone after 40 year old virgin.

The Invention of Lying was 10x better than that piece of shit Funny People, which also bombed. Now all Apatow can think to do is go back to fan favorite characters from Knocked Up for his next movie. Dude got an inflated ego and lost his edge. Now he's whining about other comedians instead of focusing on his own career.

I agree with him about the fat jokes. "The fat guy ate everybody" joke is bad comedy and is leagues beneath a talent like Gervais. Also, the fact Gervais recently lost weight does make the joke worse and he really should have seen The Tourist, if only because it was nominated in an award ceremony he was hosting.

As for the Tim Allen jokes, I don't know what Apatow's problem is since even Allen himself seemed to take the joke pretty well...

Wow Apatow, you sound like a whiny bitch. Why did Gervais have to see "The Tourist"? His joke was that nobody did, and his other jab at was easily culled from reviews.

Also, what the hell is with the Tim Allen love? Excluding "Toy Story 3", his last few films were either flops or DTDVD.

There was one fummy part...

...and that is when Gervais made a bad joke and started to take a drink and paused to say, "It's not like I am going to be doing this again" which I found to be funny because it was very true. The rest just seemed like shilling himself under the guise of standing up to the elitist mentality of Hollywood.

Apatow needs to go to film school

So he can learn about editing and pacing. A comedy doesn't have to be two hours long mofo

I'd rather have Kevin Smith whine for an eternity than listen to one second of Apatow's bitching, at least Smith still manages to be funny

Why is he so upset when he casted Heigl in "Knocked Up"? Funny people sucked Apatow and thats because.....it really did suck. I did not laugh, nor did I care for the character (for the drama). You're only doing this so you can bet a nomination. You suck.

Gervais is, and always has been, a twat. He's occasionally funny, but he's one of those guys where every joke reeks of hate and anger.

Apatow hit the nail on the head. Mean jokes told with a kind heart are funny. Mean jokes told because the person telling them is bitter about not being laid in high school = not funny.

And if its Art vs Art, Apatow has made way more shit I like watching than Gervais.
Gervais is, and always has been, a twat. He's occasionally funny, but he's one of those guys where every joke reeks of hate and anger.

Wait a sec. He said all this while HOSTING an awards show?

In what fucking world does he live in where a guy inappropriately hosting an awards show is wrong but expressing this (inappropriately, I may add) while hosting a damn awards show of your own is okay.

Gervais bashing Tim Allen during an awards show may have been wrong but guess what? YOU just bashed Ricky Gervais at an awards show.

Do you really not see that you did exactly what Gervais did except that while Gervais was doing

I dont have much of an opinion on Judd. I watch his movies, laugh a little but I dont strive to know this guys work inside and out, but this just bumped my opinion of him to negative

Leslie Mann's husband needs to shut up

Never-mind the irony of lambasting someone on stage for lambasting others on stage, Judd just comes across as a jealous kid.. he might as well have just taken to the stage and said, "Yeah, well YOU"RE a d!ck, Ricky, NAH NAH!!"

And I'm sure Coldplay enjoyed being made to feel like their music is "gay." I guess making fun of people in that way is ok. And Funny People sucked. Maybe it needed more penis jokes and a larger stoner audience to make it a success?

Time Allen did 200 eps of Home

Time Allen did 200 eps of Home Improvement? RG did The Office.. nuff said, if that's any sort of comparison anyway.

Just dropped a load of respect for Apatow. Nevermind The Invention of Lying; notice he didn't mention Extras or the original Office.

He sucks...

What's the differene between Judd Apatow and the Farrelly Brothers or Mike Judge? Well, Judd is a conservative guy who really thinks he's subversive (doing dirty jokes ain't enough for that, Judd!), he's just another moralist interested in geeks. The Farelly brothers and Mike Judge are funnier, more subversive, not moralists and are interested in freaks. What is more interesting in movies? Geeks of freaks? Freaks, of course. If you think the contrary, well, too bad for you...

Oh Apatow

You have spent years ripping off Kevin Smith. Now you seem to be copying Gervais. You sad pathetic waste of a man.

Come on though, everything he's saying is right. Maybe ya'll should get off the Gervais bandwagon (he ain't that funny, really). He makes a good point about him just losing a fuck ton of weight, just to turn around and make fat jokes? He doesn't sound like a Tim Allen Fanboy: everything he said was FACT. Kudos Apatow
