#Quote
1[on why he will not be a screenwriter for "Magic Kingdom for Sale"] I usually write everything I direct, and I'm tired of working seven days a week. It'll be fun to turn to Lowell and Babaloo and go, 'You figure it out.'
2Don't let them tell you less is more. More is more.
3[He has just demonstrated (badly) what emotion he wants in a chase scene, then looks at the camera] You see that? That was me acting. That's why I stay back here.
#Fact

2Went to film school and frequently works with editor/writer Bob Ducsay.
3Attended the USC School in Cinema-Television for three years, receiving his Master's degree.

5Has two daughters with his wife Jana Sommers: Samantha Sommers (born 1996) and Ashley Sommers (born 1999).
6Industrial Light and Magic jokingly created the "Stephen Sommers Scale" to measure the extent of digital effects used in a given movie scene. The four parts of the scale, from lowest to highest, are "What the Shot Needs", "What the Computers Can Handle", "Oh my God, the Computers Are About to Crash", and finally "What Stephen Wants".
