While there are things I like about Temple, (how can you go wrong with Indiana Jones?), Kasdan says it best:
Lawrence Kasdan, asked to write the script said
"I didn't want to be associated with Temple of Doom. I just thought it was horrible. It's so mean. There's nothing pleasant about it.
I think Temple of Doom represents a chaotic period in both their [Lucas and Spielberg] lives, and the movie is very ugly and mean-spirited."
