Why he might be annoying:

    He was a mediocre director.
    He specialized in 'chick flicks.'
    He had a height phobia.
    He offended some conservatives by making a movie about a prostitute ('Pretty Woman') with Disney.
    His film about a mentally retarded romance, 'The Other Sister,' got horrendous reviews.
    He describes his sister, Penny Marshall, as 'a little cranky.'
    He was loud and brash.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He was frank and unpretentious.
    He was known for his modesty and good humor.
    He enjoyed playing basketball in his spare time, but a knee injury forced him to stop at age 60.
    On every movie set, he put together a scrapbook of photos of himself with each member of the cast and crew.
    Despite the bad reviews, he says 'The Other Sister' is his favorite of his own films.
    He said: 'You should never give up your dream for anything - not for money, not for a good way to impress a hot brunette.'
