"17. Everything that has not yet exploded explodes."

Jerome Leon Bruckheimer (born September 21, 1943) is cited as one of the most prolific producers in contemporary American film and television. Producing several blockbuster movies and popular series, he has achieved great success in the genres of action, drama, and science fiction and has worked with such directors as Ridley Scott and his late brother Tony Scott, Michael Bay, and Gore Verbinski.

Critics often complain about his film work, saying it's just a big pile of over-emoting and Stuff Blowing Up. Whether you like it or hate it, it pretty much defines the term "glorified B-movie". It should be pointed out that he is one of the very few producers to have made two films which each grossed over $1 billion at the box office (via the Pirates of the Caribbean series).

He's also a co-owner of the Seattle Kraken, which entered the National Hockey League in 2021.
