BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Last summer the relationship between Universal and Hasbro began to deteriorate. While the studio did produce an action movie directed by Peter Berg based on the board game Battleship (due out this summer), they also dropped a number of projects, including the Ouija Board movie and a Clue remake (not to mention that they almost killed the Battleship movie too).
GoldDerby polled awards experts on the likely frontrunner for this yearís Razzie award, and they wisely went with Adam Sandlerís Jack & Jill, which has the ridiculously popular comedian playing fraternal twins. Bank on Al Pacino earning more than one Razzie for his vile cameo as himself.
If you do still have a soft spot for the type of comedy, Jack and Jill will hit Blu-Ray and DVD on March 6. The film, which follows Adam Sandler playing a happily married man and that man's needy and aggressive twin sister as the two meet up for the yearly family Thanksgiving celebration, failed to earn much traction from critics or at the box office. Regardless, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment seems hellbent on putting together a features-laden Blu-Ray and DVD release
Though the original film's writer Fred Wolf is in negotiations to write this screenplay, they say Sandler is only "potentially interested" in returning, which is strange. Though the first movie was sold on the collective appeal of the ensemble cast, Sandler is clearly the leader of the bunch, and the most successful movie star of them all. Theoretically Kevin James, Rob Schneider, David Spade and Chris Rock could return without him
This is a glimpse at what could have been Ė Kevin James, Optimus Prime and the cast of The Hangover: Part II in a Malick film. Imagine the horror. The hilarious, hilarious horror. The sight of Brad Pitt voicing the lion and the ape from Zookeeper squeezed the biggest laughs out of me.
Whether or not you've been hoping for a sequel to the Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups, we may actually get one. While Adam Sandler isnít exactly known for sequels, a script may be in the works to bring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider back together for more family fun.
There are, of course, a ton of other factors contributing to box office aside from Sandler's star persona, from the fact that Immortals was siphoning off some of the young male audience that would pay to see Jack & Jill to the release of new video games that would also interest the same young guys.But Jack & Jill was Sandler's latest attempt to sling together a sloppy script and some half-formed jokes
Adam Sandler has only lent his voice to two movies and both turned out pretty damn awful. The first was Eight Crazy Nights, the animated film that was meant to capitalize on Sandler's famous "Chanukah Song" and the other was this past summer's Zookeeper. Both projects were absolutely trashed by critics (they have an average score of 13% on Rotten Tomatoes) but perhaps the third time will the charm.
ďYou can't review Avatar then review Bucky Larson,Ē Swardson told his interviewer, marking the first and only time James Cameronís Oscar winner would be mentioned in the same breath as Larson. ďComedy is so subjective, you know what I mean? To sit there and technically pick it apart is so stupid. We've never made movies for critics, so we could give a fuck.Ē
Why fight the inevitable? Sandler will continue to crank out his brand of humor. The masses will flock. And I can hope against hope that Dugan makes the movie so strange that I find something funny about the whole mess. All of this leads me to the filmís latest poster, which gives you a closer look at Lady Sandler than you probably ever wanted.
Adam Sandler may often be thought of as the king of movies for idiots, but every now and then he does something kind of edgy in his own uniquely Sandler way. This could turn in to one of those times since, word is he may be making a movie about gay polyamory.
Adam Sandler plays twin siblings Jack AND Jill in the latest from Dennis Dugan, a repeat Sandler offender who has helmed I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, You Donít Mess With the Zohan and last summerís Grown Ups. Laugh all you want, but Duganís films make commendable bank.
Adam Sandler is preparing to get in on the vampire craze, sort of. Heís been hired to play Count Dracula in a new 3D family comedy. Not looking forward to seeing the Sand-man with fangs? Donít worry, itís a cartoon. The film is the latest from Sony Pictures Animation, the people behind Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
Despite the fact that Samberg and Sandler are way too close together in age to making a convincing father and son team, and also despite the fact that Sandler hasn't made a genuinely good comedy in years, I somehow feel like there's potential here
The star of such favorites as The Godfather, Elf and Way Of The Gun still works regularly, and while the intended role hasnít been revealed yet, I suspect it will be to play Sandlerís father. How would that be for three subsequent generations? Stern father, goofy son and even goofier grandson
After writing three straight comedies - Sex Drive, Hot Tub Time Machine, and She's Out of My League - one thing that has managed to elude writing duo Sean Anders and John Morris has been box office success. So how do you break that streak? Make a movie with the king of $100 million domestic grosses - Adam Sandler.
I must admit that I am somewhat on the fence about the remake of Total Recall. On the one hand I certainly consider myself a fan of the Arnold Schwarzenegger film, but I also really like Colin Farrell and they seem to be taking it in a much different direction. I'm retired to a place where I'm just going to wait for it to come out and judge it on its own merits. Now I know exactly when that will be.
The year was 1996 and I was just months away from graduating high school when Happy Gilmore was released. As though Adam Sandler knew I had years of procrastination ahead of me with college just on the horizon, he co-wrote and starred in this gem of a film about an aspiring hockey player who takes his insane slapshot to the golf course in an effort to save his grandmotherís house from being seized by the IRS.
At the heart of Funny People lies a devastating truth known only to those of us foolish enough to care about comedy: the funnier you get, the harder it is to laugh
By 2002 Adam Sandler was no longer ďthat funny guy with the guitar on Saturday Night Live.Ē He wasnít even ďthat guy from Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison.Ē
The 80s references are what we all remember-- plus the rapping granny, which I promise was hilarious at the time-- but The Wedding Singer is really just a genuine and sweet love story
That's right folks, today is the one year anniversary of This Rotten Week!!! It's been a good year. And though, of late, we've had a bit of a hit-or-miss streak
During the promotion for Judd Apatow's Funny People, one viral tactic the marketing team took was to create posters and trailers for fake Adam Sandler movies. With titles like Astro-Not, My Best
The combination of the two of them could work well, actually, drawing in the people who shell out for whatever Sandler does as well as Samberg's smaller legion of SNL fans
The Peopleís Choice Awards were probably more relevant in a world where the MTV Movie Awards didnít exist, but letís face it, these days theyíre pretty much the same thing. I guess the big difference is that technically
