When my first movie, Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982), turned out to be this big hit, I was so innocent, I thought: all movies are hits. It took a couple of years to figure out that almost every movie I made after that didn’t make money. Some of them haven’t made money because they’re not very good movies. It’s not like I look at a project and go, ‘Oh, this is going to be a box-office bomb. I want it!’
