Tim Allen Shrugs off ‘Crazy’ Fate

Tim Allen

Tim Allen seems to have moved beyond the disappointing fate of his highly star-studded (Sigourney Weaver, Ray Liotta, Tim himself…) comedy “Crazy On the Outside” that debuted and quickly fizzled a few months ago.  Tim produced and directed it himself.

“It’s a wonderful movie with tons of great actors,” he tells this column. “It came out right when the stock market crashed.  I didn’t want to shelve it so Target partnered up with us.  It’s available only at Target.  This is the modern Hollywood.  It’s a different way to do things.”

‘Course, there won’t be a need for such creative marketing with his next picture, the highly-anticipated June 18 “Toy Story 3.”

“I can’t tell you about it but it’s absolutely wonderful,” says Tim.  “It’s everything you want from an exciting and big movie and it really pulls at your heartstrings.  I’m very grateful to be a part of it.”
