The Cobbler Trailer


Some people are far more important than you might think. For one lowly cobbler, things are about to change. After a lifetime of fixing other people's shoes, the cobbler, Max Simkin (Adam Sandler) one day dares to try on a pair, discovering that if he walks in a man (or woman)'s shoes, he will become that person. After becoming the wrong person and coming into some money that doesn't belong to him, Simkin must do whatever he can to make it through, and maybe go back to helping other people instead of himself.

Two Guys Watched And Reviewed 'Grown Ups 2' For An Entire Year


Adam Sandler

Guy Montgomery and Tim Batt, two movie fans from New Zealand, have woken up at 9am every Monday for the last 47 weeks to watch Adam Sandler's critically derided comedy movie Grown Ups 2. Afterwards, they talk about the movie in their podcast, The Worst Idea of All Time.

Men, Women & Children Review


OK

There's a fundamental flaw to this multi-strand social media-themed drama: it's told completely from the perspective of older people who are fearful about the possibilities, rather than the generation for whom electronic communication is the norm. It's well-made by director Jason Reitman (age 36) and his cowriter Erin Cressida Wilson (50) from the novel by Chad Kultgen (38), but it kind of misses the point that this is the future of human interaction. So younger (or more switched-on) viewers won't buy the cautionary message.

IR's set in Austin, Texas, where Rachel and Don (Rosemarie DeWitt and Adam Sandler) are each so focussed on finding space outside their marriage that they don't notice that their teen son Chris (Travis Tope) is hanging out with self-proclaimed slutty cheerleader Hannah (Olivia Crocicchia). Her best friend Allison (Elena Kamporis) is starving herself to be like her, spurred on by her mother (Judy Greer), who is doing everything she can to make Allison a star. Meanwhile, Patricia (Jennifer Garner) is desperate to control how her daughter Brandy (Kaitkyn Dever) uses small-screens, especially worried about her growing friendship with Tim (Ansel Elgort), whose father (Dean Norris) is annoyed that he has quit the school football team.

Oddly, the film seems to adopt the adults' fears as its central tone: the internet and mobile phone communications are potentially dangerous, addictive and isolating. But this makes the film feel more like a sermon than a set of intertwined stories. A far more interesting approach would be to explore how communication and relationships are shifting due to the influence of online media. Indeed, the generational aspects to the films various plotlines are the most compelling elements, with clashing points of view between grown-ups and kids. But audience members who believe that mobile phones and social media sites are the future will struggle with the way Reitman presents them as inherently troublesome.

Blended Review


OK

Even with its inane script and limp direction, this film is watchable simply because Drew Barrymore is present to humanise Adam Sandler. How she does this is a mystery, but the fact remains that he's annoyingly unlikeable without her. And history proves the point: Sandler's best-ever performances were in two films opposite Barrymore, 1998's The Wedding Singer and 2004's 50 First Dates. Although this movie isn't quite in that league.

They play Lauren and Jim, who meet on a disastrous blind date and vow never to see each other again. But they end up inadvertently sharing a safari holiday to South Africa when Lauren's best pal (Wendi McLendon-Covey) and Jim's boss cancel a holiday with their five kids. Which is handy since Lauren has two energetic sons (Braxton Beckham and Kyle Red Silverstein) while Jim has three needy daughters (Bella Thorne, Emma Fuhrmann and Alyvia Alyn Lind). Of course, the children are happy to have same-sex role models along, even if Lauren and Jim can't bear to be around each other.

There isn't a split-second when we don't know exactly where this plot is heading, even though the script veers wildly between wacky slapstick mayhem and sappy lesson-learning sentimentality. Every scene is carefully concocted to elicit either laughter or tears, and the manipulative filmmaking occasionally works. Although the movie's funniest moments are offhanded gags that feel improvised between Barrymore and Sandler. The child actors are all decent, carefully cast so each each simplistic character can have his or her corny journey to some sort of personal discovery.

The Top 5 Worst Rated Adam Sandler Movies


Adam Sandler Kevin James Chris Rock Drew Barrymore Jennifer Aniston Nicole Kidman

Adam Sandler's alleged humour responds with teenage boys, and teenage boys at heart, around the world. His films contain enough toilet humour and slapstick comedy to rival The Three Stooges. Unfortunately, few of them have ever gone down well with the critics. 

Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler stars in Blended - but will it become one of his worst films ever?

His latest film, Blended, starring Drew Barrymore follows two single parents as they endure a disastrous blind date. Evidently despising each other, they are forced to meet again following a mix up and somewhere end up on vacation in Africa along with their numerous children. It's a fairly obvious cocktail, disgust will turn to love on the plains of Africa and the two will manage to unite their families. Along the way there'll be a host of silly antics and misunderstandings which will quickly be swept under the carpet whilst the sun sets on a romantic first kiss.

Working With Adam Sandler Is Humiliating, Says Kevin Nealon

Being friends with Adam Sandler is probably embarrassing enough but working with the guy is a whole new level of humiliating according to Kevin Nealon, who aside from being Sandler’s buddy, starred alongside Drew Barrymore in his latest movie, Blended - out this Friday.

Adam SandlerAdam Sandler walks about with a big coke

“It’s always a humiliating role for me. I’m usually some schlub. I had t—s on my head in (the demon comedy) Little Nicky, I had horrible plastic surgery in Just Go With It. I was the Neighborhood Watch guy in (You Don’t Mess with the) Zohan, who kept crapping his pants because he was scared,” says Nealon, according to The Toronto Sun. “I’ve got to get to the bottom of this. Our kids go to the same school now.”

It's awards season, which means it is the time when the stars of Hollywood gather together to congratulate themselves on another successful year of moviemaking.

Blended Trailer


Jim and Lauren are single parents who, after possibly the worst blind date both of them have ever been on, part ways hoping that's the last time they'll ever see each other. However, when the restaurant manages to get their cash cards mixed up, Jim is forced to call at Lauren's house to correct the mistake. It's there he finds out that his boss has just broken up with Lauren's best friend ahead of their luxury trip to Africa, leaving the vacation up for grabs for any other takers. Excited, Jim and Lauren separately arrange to take their kids along on the safari, but are convinced their holiday is ruined when they unexpectedly bump into one another. Against all odds, however, the pair find themselves with more in common than they initially thought and start to bond over their beautiful surroundings.

'Blended' is the latest movie from comedy duo Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler who previously co-starred in '50 First Dates' and 'The Wedding Singer', with Sandler also among the production team. It has been directed by Frank Coraci (' Here Comes the Boom ', 'Click', 'Around the World in 80 Days') alongside writers Ivan Menchell ('Jonas', 'The Nanny'), Clare Sera ('Doin' It Yourself'). 'Blended' is set to hit cinemas on May 23rd 2014.

'Blended' With Drew Barrymore And Adam Sandler Blends Romance, Family Holidays And... Africa [Trailer]


Drew Barrymore Adam Sandler

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler have made a movie together again. Blended exactly what you would expect – a romantic comedy about two single parents. Following a disastrous first date, Jim and Lauren end up both taking their families on a “romantic getaway” in Africa (the exact country is never specified, at least not in the trailer).

In a massively unpredictable twist (not really), the two families are forced to spend their holiday together, facing such highly original obstacles as strange food, annoying touchy couples, parachuting mishaps and some not too affectionate lions.

Dylan Sprouse Combats Nude Shots With Baby Pic And 3rd Testicle Jokes


Dylan Sprouse Adam Sandler

Dylan Sprouse, one half of Zack and Cody, has been left a little red faced after his risqué mirror selfies were leaked on the internet. Rather than hide in shame and pretend the photos weren't of him, the former child star admitted on Twitter that he slipped up and did his best at styling out the unfortunate blunder.

21 year-old identical twin actors Dylan and Cole Sprouse rose to fame after starring as Adam Sandler's son in 1999's Big Daddy and went on to act in many more movies and the Disney Channel sitcom, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Dylan may be 15 minutes older than his brother but this hasn't prevented their fans' shock at seeing the teen heartthrob posing in the buff.

It may have been easier to pretend the photos were a hoax and weren't of Dylan had the star not only photographed his bare body but his face as well. One image shows the New York University student standing in front of the bathroom mirror in his Calin Klein whites whilst feebly flexing a muscle. However, another showed a closer, headless shot of the actor in the same bathroom completely naked apart from his hand cupping a badly-concealed manhood.

Adam Sandler's 'Most Overpaid' Title Is Worrying - Just Ask Nicole Kidman


Adam Sandler Nicole Kidman

Adam Sandler was unsurprisingly named the most overpaid actor in Hollywood this week - which was fairly obvious to everyone, anyway. Despite some sizable successes in the past 15 years or so, the 47-year-old has suffered a slew of horrible movies that have returned only middling amounts at the box office.

Adam SandlerAdam Sandler Looking Angry at the 'Here Comes The Boom' Premiere

Forbes estimates that his last three movies pulled in $3.40 for every $1 the actor was paid. His flop That's My Boy - which one critic called "vulgar, tasteless, mean-spirited and most offensive of all - not funny" - cost around $70 million to make but lost money with returns of just $57 million.

Hollywood actors pay checks are staggering to the rest of us but what makes it worse is if they actually don't deserve the millions of dollars they receive.

Leading the way is Hollywood's funny man Adam Sandler, the 47 year-old has been at the top of the Hollywood ladder for several years now after starring in memorable films such as 'Billy Madison', 'Happy Gilmore', 'Big Daddy' and 'The Longest Yard' to name a few.

Stop Throwing Money At Adam Sandler, He's Officially The Most Overpaid Actor


Adam Sandler Reese Witherspoon Eddie Murphy Steve Carell Nicolas Cage Matt Damon

What we’ve assumed was true for a long time has now been confirmed: Adam Sandler is the most overpaid actor in the world, yielding the least amount of cash for the money he earns. Forbes, who did the maths and put everything into a handy list for everyone to peruse, bestowed the unwanted gong upon Hollywood's so called funnyman. But don’t worry there’s no awards ceremony for an achievement like this, just sarcastic news stories, a few memes and a big bag of Cheese Puffs for the list's #1.

Adam Sandler'Hey Sandler! you stink!' someone might have said once

So let’s look at some numbers: his last three films returned an average of $3.40 for every $1 he was paid. Last year, Natalie Portman earned $42.70 per dollar according to Forbes' most profitable actors list, just to give you some context.

Kristen Stewart Earns $500,000 For Charity After Spending 15 Minutes Alone With Middle Eastern Prince


Kristen Stewart Harvey Weinstein Sir Paul McCartney Mick Jagger Bruce Springsteen Chris Rock Billy Joel Adam Sandler

Kristen Stewart managed to earn half a million dollars in only 15 minutes, and if that wasn't impressive enough, the money she made was donated straight to charity. The Twilight star caught the attention of an unnamed Middle Eastern Prince, who was so taken with the actress that he forked out the huge sum for just 15 minutes of her time.

Kristen Stewart
Just $500K can buy you 15 minutes with Kristen Stewart

According to film producer Harvey Weinstein, Kristen was helping to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy when Weinstein was approached about spending some one-on-one time with Kristen by the mysterious, ultra-rich Middle Eastern monarch. Initially dismissing the requests, Kristen soon caught wind of what was happening and was actually willing to meet with the high-paying Prince, leading Weinstein to broker a deal to arrange the meet-up. Sounds seedy doesn't it?

Grown Ups 2 Review


Terrible

There was nothing remotely notable about 2010's Grown Ups, and now we have a sequel that's even lazier. Without any actual plot to speak of, the movie merely strings together a series of unfunny scenes that include cheap gags and childish vulgarity but never a punchline. Sure, the scattershot approach might occasionally touch on recognisable situations, but there isn't a genuine laugh in the whole film.

After the reunion in the original movie, Lenny (Sandler) has moved back to his hometown with pals Eric, Kurt and Marcus (James, Rock and Spade). They're planning a big party just like in the old days, complete with a 1980s theme. But their children are getting older and have their own issues, including first dates and driving tests. And in Marcus' case, the kid is a teen thug (Ludwig) he only just discovered he had. But the real problem is that the guys have just sparked a turf war with a gang of idiotic fratboys from the nearby university. And now they have to prove once and for all who's really cool.

As with the first movie, you get the feeling that everyone on screen has somewhere better to be. There's no character development at all, since there are so many people spread across so many short scenes. Hayek, Bello and Rudolph are back as the guys' wives, but get exactly one thankless thing to do each. And it's not much better for the supporting cast of A-list cameo players like Buscemi (as a driving instructor), Lautner (as the fraternity leader) and so many more recognisable actors that you begin to wonder what dirt Sandler has on all of them.

Box Office Round-Up: The Wolverine Slices It's Nearest Competitor In Half In Walk-Over Weekend


Hugh Jackman Adam Sandler

The Wolverine, Hugh Jackman's latest vehicle to star as one of the X Men's most famous recruits; Wolverine, shot straight to the top of the US Box Office this weekend and many other film charts across the globe. Domestically, the film underachieved, taking in a lower-than-expected $55 million, however it's performance overseas gave bosses 20th Century Fox something to celebrate as it brought in roughly $86.1 million, meaning that it has already recouped it's estimated $120 million budget.

Hugh Jackman
The Wolverine underperformed in North America, but recouped it's losses overseas

In spite of the major overseas takings, with the film managing to reach the number 1 spot in 100 countries, the $55m in takings that the film brought in throughout North America is at least $10 million below expectations, and a far cry from the $85.1 million opening that the universally panned X-Men Origins: Wolverine managed to make in early May 2009. With a much better critical reception this time round, some forecasters were predicting the film to go on and beat that number, but with such an encouraging stake in the overseas market, we doubt producers will be losing too much rest over what could be a sleeper hit in the domestic market. Still, with such an underwhelming domestic take, mirroring such recently released flops as R.I.P.D., After Earth and The Lone Ranger, are these poor figures a reflection of a recession-hit economy, or of an audience no longer interested in such throwaway action films?

Nightmare Weekend For Ryan Reynolds As 'The Conjuring' Bewitches Box-Office


Ryan Reynolds Guillermo Del Toro Jeff Bridges Patrick Wilson Vera Farmiga Adam Sandler

It was a weekend that Ryan Reynolds would probably rather forget. In fact, it he probably woke-up in cold sweats wondering whether he had another Green Lantern on his hands. The actor starred in two new releases this week, crime-comedy RIPD and the animated flick Turbo - both cost $130 million to make, both were expected to trouble the top of the box-office, both bombed.

RIPDDespite A Pretty Cool Premise, RIPD Failed To Fire At The Box Office

We say bombed: maybe that's a little unfair, though RIPD - also starring Jeff Bridges - took a paltry $12.8 million to sneak No.7 on the box-office, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Poor Pacific Rim: Is Sandler's Soaring 'Grown Ups 2' The Worst Movie...Ever?


Adam Sandler Guillermo Del Toro Disney Sandra Bullock Melissa McCarthy Russell Brand Steve Carell

Yeah, we had a feeling this might happen. The $190 million budget of Pacific Rim is seemingly looking further away than ever after Guillermo Del Toro's blockbuster took just $38.3 million on its box-office debut over the weekend. The Idris-Elba starring movie - which courted mainly negative reviews - is now on course to become a loss making movie for Thomas Tull's Legendary Pictures.

As expected, it was the superb Despicable Me 2 that maintained the No.1 spot on its second weekend, grossing $44.8 million for a domestic total of $229.2 million and establishing itself as one of the success stories of the year. The animated flick featuring the voices of Russell Brand and Steve Carell also topped the global box office for the weekend with $100.5 million in ticket sales, Pacific Rim followed with $91.3 million. 

Sony executives will have been jumping for joy on Sunday, with news that Adam Sandler's comedy sequel Grown Ups 2 opened to a stellar $42.5 million domestically. In fact, Sony were so happy they released a cheery statement for us all to read, via the Hollywood Reporter:

Grown Ups? Adam Sandler Pounced On By Cheetah In Africa


Adam Sandler Drew Barrymore Bella Thorne

The focus on Hollywood actor Adam Sandler has rapidly switched from last night's joyous Grown Ups 2 premiere in New York to the latest news that he was attacked by a cheetah whilst on African safari with his family. There are few more terrifying happenings to imagine whilst on African safari than being mauled by a hefty big cat and Sandler was lucky that this time a handler was nearby to wrench the brawling beast from the Happy Gilmore comic's back.

Adam sandler
Adam Sandler Was Mauled By A Cheetah On Holiday In Africa.

Speaking on David Letterman's CBS show, Sandler spoke of how he was enjoying his family holiday on safari when he was invited to enter an enclosure with some rescued animals. The keeper suggested that he could feed the captured cheetah with water from his hands and Adam bent down to a pool to scoop some up. Like most living creatures, the sight of Sandler must have irritated the furry wildcat who seemingly went in for the kill, leaping upon the Jack and Jill actor's back as the 46 year-old tried to stand up in surprise.

'Grown Ups 2' Reviews: Adam Sandler's Comedy Is "Lazy", "Gross" And "Lousy"


Adam Sandler Kevin James Salma Hayek David Spade Chris Rock

Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 has been universally panned by critics. The movie is released today (12th July) in US cinemas. Early reviews indicate the movie will be a huge success with teenagers across the States but will do anything but impress grown-ups.

New York Post's Sara Stewart said the film "lurches from one gross-out scene to another" without any regard for "continuity or logic". Following in a similar line of thought is Claudia Puig of USA Today, who said Grown Ups 2 is "lazy, scattershot and anything-but-mature".

Formulaic And Predictable - Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 Nails The Sequel Tone On First Try

Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups 2 – the creatively titled sequel to 2010’s Grown Ups – is about as bad as you’d expect, at least as far as the critics are concerned. However, despite the unanimously poor critical reception that the last decade of Sandler movies have received the comedian continues to make them and, more importantly, to make decent profits off them.

Check out more photos from the film's New York Premiere.

The comedy sequel to 2010's Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, is ready to hit cinemas this summer. All of the film's stars showed up on the red carpet in New York last night at the premiere of the new movie that looks to be hilarious. According to Yahoo! Movies, Adam Sandler led the rest of the cast, including Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade and Salma Hayek, down the red carpet at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square.

Adam Sandler Plays Lenny Feder In Grown Ups 2.

Directed by Dennis Dugan, in Grown Ups 2 we'll see Lenny Feder (Sandler) three years on from the events of Grown Ups where he has moved back to his small hometown with his wife (Hayek) and kids to reunite with his old friends (Rock/James/Spade) and their families. The film will focus on the kids' last day of the school year and the inevitable mishaps and unpredictable surprises. The tagline for the film is "Just because they're a little older doesn't mean they've grown up" and certainly, don't expect any high-brow humour here.

Razzies Shame As Robert Pattinson And Kristen Stewart's Final Twilight Movie Is Source Of Scorn


Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson Rihanna Adam Sandler

The night before Hollywood got glammed up in back-patting mode at the Oscars, the annual Razzies ceremony – an antidote to the self-congratulatory narcissism of the Oscars – took a more cynical look at the big movies of the last 12 months. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2 was the big winner (well, loser) of the evening, landing seven of the awards.

Kristen Stewart ‘won’ Worst Actress though we’re unclear as to whether or not this had anything to do with her sporting a pair of crutches at the Oscars the next evening. She told Anne Hathaway that she’d trodden on glass, but the sight of her hobbling around in her Oscars gown will certainly bump up the sympathy levels. Stewart’s co-star Taylor Lautner also ‘won’ a Razzie for his performance in the final Twilight movie and although Robert Pattinson didn’t quite get his name engraved on one of the awards, as such, the movie still landed the ‘Worst Screen Ensemble’ award, Reuters reports.

Rihanna also got a pasting, for her role in the frankly terrible ‘Battleship’ and of course, the Razzis is simply no longer The Razzies if Adam Sandler doesn’t get a look-in. Last year, he famously took home all ten of the awards. Except no one actually takes the awards home, because naturally, they don’t actually attend the evening of humiliation. The Razzies weren’t done with trying to take down Sandler’s career just yet, though. This year, he landed two golden raspberry statuettes: Worst Actor and Worst Screenplay, for his comedy That’s My Boy.

It's that time of year again! The nominations for this year's Razzies have been announced, with Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 - which made a ridiculous $814 million at the box office - leading the way with 11 nominations, including Worst Film and Worst Sequel. A spoof of the Academy Awards, this year's Razzies' picks arrived just one day before Thursday's Oscar nominations. So which directors, actors and actresses will have let out a giant, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO" when catching wind of the infamous nominations today? And perhaps more importantly, who should win (or lose). Which movies and performances really were the worst of the worst? Here goes.
