Harvey Weinstein invites Michele Bachmann to a very special Tea Party

Harvey Weinstein OIivia wildeEminent film producer and Hollywood arch-provocateur Harvey Weinsteinhas invited Tea Party favourite and US presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to “co-host” the premiere of his latest filmButter – a satirical comedy about a butter-carving competition set in small-town America.

In a bewildering but eye-catching move, Weinstein asked cast member Olivia Wilde todeliver a speech in his own words to the audience for the film’s Toronto screening.

“In 20 years of coming to the Toronto film festival, I’ve never released a statement for a film,” read Wilde for Weinstein. “But I would like to take this moment to formally invite Republican congresswoman from Minnesota and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to co-host with me the big premiere of Butter in Iowa in a few months from now. We could take some math classes in the morning to help balance the budget, brush up on the constitution in the afternoon, play some ping-pong and then maybe some verbal ping-pong on gay rights and women’s rights (especially the right to choose).”

Onlookers observed that Weinstein’s unusual invitation might stem from a desire to alert critics to Butter’s value as a satire on the current race for the Republican presidential nomination. The film, directed by Jim Field Smith from a screenplay by Jason Micallef that featured on the 2008 “Black List” of the best unproduced scripts in Hollywood, centres on a small town that becomes a hotbed of controversy and jealousy over its annual butter carving competition. Jennifer Garner stars as the ambitious wife of the reigning champion, who finds himself threatened by the emergence of a talented black teenage rival.

On the other hand, Weinstein’s move may just be a ploy to attract attention to a film that has not so far wowed critics. The movie received a mixed response following a “sneak preview” screening at the Telluride film festival earlier this month, and the LA Times reports that Weinstein has been hard at work in the cutting room with the aim of retooling the film for an awards-season run next year. It’s not clear whether the version that screened in Toronto is the final cut.

Meanwhile, Deadline reported that the maverick producer may have broken some sort of record for attending premieres on Monday night, 24 hours prior to the Butter screening. He was in New York City for the premiere of romantic comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and later arrived in Toronto for screenings of Madonna’s WE and Ralph Fiennes’s Coriolanus. All three films are distributed by the producer’s own studio, the Weinstein Company.

  1. Chaim Paddaman says:

    Harvey Weinstein and the Hollywood elite present with distinctive clinical manifestations of malignant narcissistic traits. Weinstein and the Hollywood elite believe that Roman Polanski’s sexual abuse of a child was an Hollywood entitlement. The sole purpose of state and federal law is not to benefit Weinstein and the Hollywood elite, as they demanded soft Hollywood justice for Roman Polanski. Harvey Weinstein bankrolled the political campaign of Hillary Clinton. It makes you think. How many complimentary tickets to the Hollywood casting couch have been issued to politicians and district attorney’s by Weinstein and the Hollywood elite? Is it the casting couch that have made Hollywood untouchable and above the law? Harvey Weinstein is up to his eyeballs in sleaze. He is dangerous. He is not a mensch. Give Harvey Weinstein his dues, he knows where the bacon is at; Between the pig’s tochas. Alas, porky Weinstein is a mishugener.
