The Asylum is an American film studio and distributor which focuses on producing low-budget, usually direct-to-video productions. The studio is best known for producing titles which appear to capitalize on productions by major studios.... In 2008, 20th Century Fox threatened legal action against The Asylum over The Day the Earth Stopped, a film believed to capitalize on The Day the Earth Stood Still.
Many reviewers took issue with the bad dialogue, particularly a scene where John Barrowman delivers the dead-pan line, "You know, I'm really wired. What do you say I take you home and eat your pussy?" This was later revealed (on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross) to be an ad-lib by Barrowman intended to make his co-star laugh, although for some reason it was left in the movie's final cut. Some subsequent TV broadcasts of the movie, however, replace the line with "What do you say I take you home and we watch I Love Lucy?"
