Judd Apatow finds himself at crossroads

In the wake of Judd Apatow's latest film "Funny People" opening to a middling $22.6 million, Hollywood was eager to pass judgment on the hyphenate's stock.

Their verdict: It's still very high.

Managers, agents and development execs interviewed Monday said that Apatow's minor misstep at the boxoffice as well as some industry grumbling about the picture's length and tone weren't likely to affect his standing with studios.

"This is someone who still makes movies at a pretty low cost, works with amazing talent and has the boxoffice track record to back him up," one talent rep said.
