For those days when you want to ask my advice about quality entertainment products but I might actually have work to do.
What does this mean? paycheck movie?
A paycheck movie, or a paycheck anything, is something done strictly for the money. No artistic considerations, no passion, no reason other than the money. It's an entirely nasty thing to say about a movie, specifically aimed at the actors, writers, producers and director. It's also an entirely nasty thing to do to an audience, which is why it needed to be said.
