Seriously why do people see his films? He can make anything and people will see it.
I'd rather watch old anti-abortion propaganda films.
Not a big Sandler fan. He's done some funny stuff but alot of shit too.
This will add to the latter.
This will be the greatest entertainment since Jethrine Bodine came to visit her brother.
I wonder if he just makes these films as a joke to see how much crap he can make before people really turn on him.
I like Sandler because I know he has it in him to do something other than this bullshit he continues to churn out.
Punch Drunk Love was a pretty good movie. I wish he would do that again.
I thought he was decent in Funny People until it fell apart.
That seems like a South Park sketch. Holy shit.
Then hes doing it on purpose which makes most of his movies even more insulting.
Adam Sandler, annnndddd Adam Sandler. Blech!
well he said it would be a good idea
It is a mathematical certainty that I will never see this movie.
I LOVE Punch drunk love (it's no Boogie nights but it's insanely underrated) and I admit Sandler's performance is great in that movie but we don't know how much of that was due to careful editing, shooting twenty hours of footage then picking the three minutes Sandler didn't come across as a douche etc. I'm not saying he's definitely not got it in him to be a good actor but I wouldn't give him too much creative credit for Punch drunk love. Remember how, after Pulp fiction came out, we all thought Travolta was cool for about a year or so? Then Broken arrow and Face off and Battlefield Earth (shudder) happened and we realized Tarantino had just been an even better director than we'd credited him for.
I would rather disembowel myself with a scimitar, than see this abortion.
I love Punch Drunk Love but the high water mark for Sandler's humor came with Chubbs, the alligator, and Abraham Lincoln waving down from heaven.
Well everyones awesome when you put them with Carl Weathers (sp?). He was fantastic on arrested development as the cheap asshole too for anyone who never saw it.
I love Happy Gilmore, but it was stolen from Sandler by Christopher MacDonald as Shooter McGavin and Ben Stiller's cameo.
Scary thought is that this could be the start of Sandler playing multiple roles.
I was watching Perfect Storm, and the weatherman was Shooter McGavin. Every time I see Shooter McGavin, I say, hey, there's Shooter McGavin. Talk about typecasting. He will always be Shooter McGavin.
If it was typecasting he'd be angry weatherman Shooter McGavin, but yes, everytime I see the guy I keep thinking "Shooter McGavin."
No, Shooter McGavin was much more than angry. remember how happy Shooter McGavin was when he heard about the how well the heckler Shooter McGavin hired did? Or Shooter McGavin's great pleasure in ordering Shooter McGavin's custom fit ugly jacket with one sleeve slightly longer than the other? And how about Shooter McGavin's absolute fear when Jaws was doing a horrible job of fake chasing Shooter McGavin after Shooter McGavin stole the jacket from Happy? Shooter McGavin is far more complex than just angry. So a concerned Shooter McGavin weatherman who discovers the approach of the perfect storm which will leave a luscious Diane Lane single is not a stretch at all for someone of the caliber of Shooter McGavin.
It'll make a killing. Such is the joy of the American Movie-Goer.
