Production

The film was initially set in production in the 1980's and 1990's, with BoJack set to play Secretariat, he beat out several actors for his the part of his childhood hero, even Val Kilmer, he eventually got the role but the film never saw the light of day when it went into development hell.

In 2014, the film went back into production, with Lenny Turteltaub producing. Kelsey Jannings was hired as a director, and BoJack auditioned for the title role once more. He was beat by Andrew Garfield, but when he was struck by a bus, BoJack got the part. Diane Nguyen was hired as a Character Consultant, having wrote a whole book about Secretariat. The film was originally dark and gritty, but was changed mid-way to a family friendly movie. BoJack wasn't too happy about this, nor was Kelsey Jannings, and they broke into a Nixon Museum at night, to film a important Richard Nixon scene that was cut from the film entirely, BoJack gave what was described as the best performance of his life. However, for doing this, Lenny not only refused to have it in the film, but fired Kelsey as director, and was replaced by Abe D'Catfish. Abe D'Catfish had a feud with BoJack, because through a misunderstanding, he ended up insulting Abe's films. Abe ended up making BoJack do several reshoots and retakes. BoJack, through personal issues with his girlfriend at the time, Wanda Pierce, ended up leaving to go to New Mexico, where he stayed with Charlotte Moore, his old friend. BoJack screwed up that as well, so he came back, to find the film has been finished without him, they a used CGI version of BoJack. Also, during the film, Corduroy Jackson Jackson, died of auto erotic asphyxiation, the film is dedicated to his memory.

Critical Reception

The film was universally praised, BoJack's performance was widely praised, and several people suggested he be nominated for a Oscar Award. His publicist, Ana Spanakopita even started an Oscar Campaign for BoJack. Mr. Peanutbutter, who announced the Oscar Nominations, lost the envelope that contained the actual Oscar Nominations, and made them up with Todd Chavez, and they nominated BoJack's performance, however at BoJack's Oscar Nomination Party, BoJack and everybody at the party learned that the nomination was invalid.
