Colin Farrell is Sorry That the Miami Vice Movie Was Horrible
The Miami Vice movie could've been as great and iconic as the series that preceded it. Instead it was met with decent, but not exactly enthusiastic reviews and managed to only get back about $65 million of its reported $125 million budget at American box offices.
But if you thought it sucked, you're not alone. The film's star Colin Farrell, who stepped into the Don Johnson-role, didn't much care for it.
"It was never going to be Lethal Weapon, but I think we missed an opportunity to have a friendship that also had some elements of fun."
If you thought the flick was awesome (you wouldn't be alone, our reviewer loved it), maybe you could chalk Farrell's remarks up to the fact his career hasn't been quite the same since.
Vice was the last big, Hollywood blockbuster he carried. He's done respected work in smaller films, sure, but he's fallen off the A-List. Of course, maybe the drug problems and sex tape had more to do with that than the box office disappointment of Crocket and Tubbs.
