Baum, who has been involved in the industry since the 1980s, expressed her confusion about the buzz surrounding Sweeney after watching her latest film, “Anyone But You,” during a flight. She described the romantic comedy as “unwatchable” and admitted that even her students at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts couldn’t explain Sweeney’s popularity.
