Harvey Weinstein shoots back at his naysayers

Flying under the radar is not in Harvey Weinstein's DNA. He casts a giant shadow on the Croisette and in his dealings, attracting attention to himself, his stars and his movies. Weinstein, 55, is all about living large: throwing large parties and fundraisers (this year's AMFAR benefit raised a record $7.5 million), announcing large prebuys, and often adjusting large deal terms.

But the Weinstein Co. -- launched by Bob and Harvey Weinstein amid considerable hype some 19 months ago -- has spent millions and produced several profitable films, but only one big grosser: Dimension's "Scary Movie 4," half-owned by Disney, earned $91 million in 2006.
