  • Cameraman: Hello all, I apologize profusely for what you are watching right now. This was actually the most amazing sequence shot over three days with live coyotes, two Bengals tigers and a lion, but for legal reasons we can't release the footage. Did I know that coyotes can't be trained? No. Did I do background checks on the animal handlers? No. Did the tigers get into the cocaine? Yes. Was it a good idea to have coke and other drugs lying around the set? Probably not. Did some crew members get eaten? You bet, but that's the movie biz, right?

    Cameraman: Look, I'm a good guy. I usually try my best, but I took my eye off the ball on this one. No one is arguing that, but for once, give a guy a break. In fact, do me a favor, don't tell your friends about the poor quality of this sequence. Our secret, okay? Enjoy the rest of the movie. Sincerely, Emilio Sanchez. 2nd Camera Assistant. The director made me write this note
