Apatow Makes Penis Promise

SUPERBAD director Judd Apatow is on a mission to put penises in every movie he makes - and end America's fear of male members. The filmmaker placed a penis behind actor John C. Reilly's head in an orgy scene in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and watched as audience members stormed out of a test screening in disgust. Undeterred, Apatow kept the penis footage in the film - and then made a "c**kumentary" about shooting the scene, which will appear on the DVD. He says, "The original shot was way longer, where the penis is in close-up, and then one night we showed it to a test audience and 22 people walked out. I think we went too far with too much penis. "We went with different angles to make sure there weren't too much testicles being shown... America fears the penis and that's something I'm going to help them get over. "I'm gonna get a penis in every movie I do from now on. When this writers' strike ends, that is my dream. It really makes me laugh in this day and age, with how psychotic our world is, that anyone is troubled by seeing any part of the human body; that is amusing to me."
