    • Lister: What, you mean like persuade Dustin Hoffman not to make Ishtar?

      Dustin Hoffman is an actor famous for his roles in 1967's The Graduate (1967), Tootsie (1982), and Rain Man (1988). In 'Ishtar' (1987), he co-starred with Warren Beatty, and their different but perfectionist egos clashed not only with each other but with the director's right to control (she was far less established than they were). At US$40 mil (then unusually large) the film went way over its original budget (incl $10mil each to Hoffman & Beatty, then an unusually large sum), earning comparisons to Heavens Gate. Enduring both critical decimation as well as audience ennui, the film bombed, and got a much worse reputation than it deserved (not to suggest it's good).
