Question: What CBS daytime soap opera debuted in 1987 and focused on the “Forrester” fashion empire?
Last Question: Which star of Leonard Part 6 appeared on talk shows to denounce the movie?
Answer: Bill Cosby
Bill Cosby, at the height of his Cosby Show fame, writes, produces, and stars in a new feature film. Wow, it sounds like it’s going to be a blockbuster hit, right? Wrong! Even though Cosby was heavily involved with Leonard Part 6, upon the film’s release in 1987, he went on a crusade advising people not to waste their money on it. The result was the $24 million film only grossed around $4.5 million.
The movie won three Golden Raspberry Awards, for Worst Actor (Cosby), Worst Picture, and Worst Screenplay (Jonathan Reynolds and Cosby). It was nominated for two more Razzie Awards, for Worst Supporting Actress (Gloria Foster) and Worst Director (Paul Weiland). For the 2005 Razzies, the movie earned a nomination in the Worst “Comedy” of Our First 25 Years category.
Here is Siskel & Ebert reviewing the movie. For some reason, I get the impression that they didn’t like it either:
