Francis Ford Coppola

Wrong About 'Godfather II'

11/21/2011 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Francis Ford Coppola has everyone baffled -- why would he say "Godfather II" was a mistake?? Even Frank Sivero, who played Genco in GF2, is challenging Coppola -- calling in to figure out ... why the bitterness over a masterpiece?

Plus, wedding stress sent Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner to splitsville -- so maybe Harvey The Wedding Grinch has a point when he says ... JUST ELOPE? 

And, did Matt Damon make a huge mistake by going to a bullfight in Mexico? We're calling for an embargo -- no foreign aid to countries hosting these barbaric events!  Agree ... or are we nuts?

(5:45) Shocking -- Francis Ford Coppola regrets making "Godfather: Part 2" ... but nobody understands why.
(9:35) Frank Sivera -- who played Genco in "Part 2" -- is on the phone to defend the movie.
(12:30) Frank says Coppola was extremely meticulous over the movie -- which may explain why he didn't want to make it.
(17:01) Jack Wagner and Heather Locklear cancel their nuptials because planning the wedding was too stressful -- so ... how stupid are weddings?
(26:00) One lady tweets that she had a $1,000 wedding!
(27:01) Evan's wedding -- the greatest ever.
(31:50) The Twitter lady has finally had enough of Harvey ... and takes a parting shot.
(36:20) The biggest problem with reopening the Natalie Wood case -- is virtually impossible to convict Robert Wagner of any crime.
(45:01) Matt Damon attends a bull fight -- should the "sport" be banned?

I liked GF3. I know most don't, but for what it is, it is very enjoyable. You wanted GF3 to equal or surpass 1&2? GF1 for Christmas (Michael learns of Vito's shooting while leaving the Rockettes Christmas show). GF2 for New Year's (Michael tries to kill Roth in Havana on New Year's Eve). And GF3 for Easter (Cavalleria Rusticana, the opera MC3 stars in, includes an Easter scene). What about July 4th? What about Thanksgiving? Why can't we have GF films for these occasions? We have a Soprano's episode for Columbus Day, so that's already done (And the Stock Market doesn't even close for it. Can't have a GF film for a holiday where Wall Street has to work.).

I really think weddings have gotten way out of hand. I have been happily unmarried for 14 years. I would much rather spend a few grand on a really nice trip, marry there with just us, and a minister of some sort. It's crazy to spend so much. When you think about it, the end result is the same no matter how much you spend. Why go through all the stress and the BS that goes with a big wedding.

Kudos to Harvey on his distaste for bull fighting. The torture of animals should never be called a sport, furthermore, just because something is a tradition does not make it acceptable and right!

Harvey, charles, your argument about cutting aid to foreign countries that have bullfights is American arrogance at its worst.Why not cut ties/ stop military training of Saudi Arabians who torture people? As long as US interests triumph human rights, animal rights won't ever be considered. And I'm not saying that the US is alone in this hypocracy.

Matt Damon was yawning, not cheering, in the stills you showed. Other than that, you and your team provide great insight regarding the world of Dips**t Celebrities! Thanks for the entertainment.

HOW could ANYONE condone Bullfighting?? It is one of the most barbaric, Cruel events known known to man.You have a injured bull that has already been stabbed several times and lost quite a bit of blood, thrown into a ring to "fight" a matador who is uninjured and has a sword and sharp knives, THIS IS A EVENT OF COWARDS!!!
Any civilized society will demand the banning of such a barbaric event.This is definately one for the history books, let's all help it on it's way out.
