20. The classic “perfect date” line has special significance
Every April 25th, memes appear to celebrate Miss Rhode Island’s beloved movie quote about “The Perfect Date,” which she mistakenly interprets as her favorite day on the calendar rather than a perfect romantic outing. As it turns out, screenwriter Mark Lawrence wrote the line, but Donald modified it by changing the date to his wife’s birthday.
“I just said,” Could it be April 25th? It’s my wife’s birthday, “the director revealed. “So I’m very happy because every year on her birthday, there are all these memes going on.”

Donald said he’s intentionally including extra scenes in the early cuts of his movies, just in case anything comes out with audiences he wasn’t expecting, so critics are never invited to those shows. But, remember the director, the film’s blogger Harry Knowles He sneaked into my test show and “gave her the harshest comments and worst reviews of any movie ever, including calling me because I personally screwed up Sandy Bullock’s career.”
Fortunately, the studio seemed unfazed by the early negative hype, and in the end the movie was still a hit, grossing $ 212 million worldwide from a budget of $ 45 million. Donald said, “The only thing I can say is I’m definitely glad the movie was such a hit and kind of classic comedy, and it made a lot of money, so I can gently turn my finger on that review and go, ‘Hey, heh!”
