Judd Apatow's penis obsession

Wong Kar-Wai is in at the pinnacle of his filmmaking ability. New, exciting filmmakers from places as remote as Romania and Israel are making their mark. Meanwhile, how is the reigning Toast of Hollywood, Judd Apatow, spending his intellectual capital? Figuring out ways to stick more penises into his movies.

"America fears the penis, and that's something I'm going to help them get over," Apatow is quoted as having said in a World Entertainment News Service story in December. "I'm gonna get a penis in every movie I do from now on. . . . 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."

Who says Hollywood filmmakers lack ambition?
