“The last time I made a movie in California was seven years ago, and that’s because we’re not being competitive,” said Schneider, 49, of Pacifica.
Oh, Rob. Robbie. Robmeister. The Robster. Rob-o-rama. Robman. Robatollah. Baron von Robthoven.
Yes, the California Film Commission reports that despite some positive effects from a tax-credit program for television and film production, “California continues to experience a pronounced erosion of this signature industry.” But could there be another reason that Rob Schneider hasn’t made a movie in California in seven years?
Let’s see what he has been doing for the past seven years. That takes us back to 2006 and – aha! – “The Benchwarmers.” Can’t believe that didn’t bring the big-ticket scripts pouring in. Then, who could forget those eight episodes of “¡Rob!” early last year? And, what was the difference between “Grown Ups” (2010) and “Grown Ups 2” (2013)? Looks like the latter suffered from a distinct lack of Rob.
Yep, must be the taxes and whatnot.
