Some suggestions for you :

It's interesting the kind of freedom the musical form gives you. The rules are out the window. You can get impressionistic without seeming pretentious. Because it's perceived as an inherently accessible form, it gives filmmakers some leeway.

Acting isn't that hard, really. I mean, I think that people make a big deal about it, but you just kind of try to say your lines naturally.

Most movies, you have to try and forget you're making a movie, because there are trailers and booms and lights and marks, and it's everywhere.

There used to be a candy called 'Bonkers,' which I believe to be the greatest candy of all time.

I did what I had to do to get where I wanted to go. I had unearned confidence.

I didn't want to make a literal film about Detroit, because it felt like what they were experiencing was more universal than that.

I think that you can sort of have your own personal journey and you know, you can just kind of apply that to whatever characters you're playing.

Sometimes I think that the one thing I love most about being an adult is the right to buy candy whenever and wherever I want.

We should get a Roomba for our Roomba. I feel bad for it because it works tirelessly, and at night I can hear it cleaning, and I just feel bad for it.

I love being Canadian. I think growing up in Canada gives you a world perspective that I certainly enjoy.

What's nice with comedy is that you know it's working if it's funny.

If I eat a huge meal and I can get the girl to rub my belly, I think that's about as romantic as I can think of.

This is going to sound ridiculous, but I remember watching 'Boyz n the Hood,' and there is a scene where Cuba Gooding, Jr. gets pressed against a car by a police officer, and he starts crying because it's so humiliating. I remember thinking in that moment that I could totally identify with him, and I'm a little white kid from Canada.

I think we just knew that we had a movie when Rachel walked in the room.
