And entertainment generally involves humor, and I think Kevin really likes to try movies and I think you like to sit in the test projection and listen to the feedback. the audience laughs, you can hear their response. You can understand, ‘Okay, every 2 minutes [ellos] they kinda enjoy the movie,’ and that’s a solid way for him to gauge how the movie will work with an audience, right? So I think humor is very important to him,” says the director in an interview with TheDirect.
