"Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you're going to live your life."Todd Phillips on Joel Osteen
"My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength."Todd Phillips on Michael Jordan
"Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character."Todd Phillips on Albert Einstein
"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."Todd Phillips on Thomas Jefferson
"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."Todd Phillips on Winston Churchill
"There's a darkness under 'The Hangover' because ultimately there's a missing person and it's not really that funny. There's a sort of darkness under it that I love, and still people are laughing as hard if not harder than they did in 'Old School.'"
"I think people like comedies and I think concept driven comedies seem to be working when it's a clear concept and you deliver funny stuff."
"Comedy is so subjective. You could be in a room with 400 people laughing at a joke and you could just not think it's funny. You're just sitting there like, 'Am I in the twilight zone? Why is everyone laughing?' It's such a personal thing. People have such a personal visceral response to comedy."
"You know, if I started worrying about what the critics think, I'd never make another comedy. You couldn't pick a less funny group than critics - you couldn't find a more bitter group of people!"
"I think that 'Hangover II' is as funny as 'The Hangover I,' honest to God, but I think that it's a little bit darker, and the stakes are a little bit higher."
