Adam Sandler didn't have a terrific 2011. Both Just Go With It and Jack and Jill were bashed by critics and have earned Sandler a record-setting 11 Razzie nominations.
Luckily, 2012 is a new year, and this summer's That's My Boy (formerly Donny's Boy and I Hate You Dad) could spell redemption from Sandler. The movie follows Sandler as a hard-partying Donny, who runs into money problems and decides to turn to the son he fathered in high school (Andy Samberg) for help. The only problem is, he has hasn't seen his son in years and wasn't exactly a very good father. To promote the comedy, Sony has released a red band trailer for the movie showing Sandler getting in trouble with Samberg's fiancee (Leighton Meester) once his irresponsible ways start to have an influence on his son. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.02.12 by Ryan
The 2001 comedy Wet Hot American Summer wasn't exactly a blockbuster at the box office, earning only $295,206 in limited release. Nevertheless, Wet Hot American Summer has amassed a huge cult following over the years, holding an 85% approval rating on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes — with some fans considering it to be one of the best comedies of the decade, if not of all time.
Written by The State alumni Michael Showalter and David Wain, who also directed, Wet Hot American Summer is an irreverent and hilarious look at the summer camp movie genre filled with soon-to-be-movie-stars like Paul Rudd (who worked with Wain again on Role Models and ), Elizabeth Banks (Our Idiot Brother, the upcoming Hunger Games), and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, The Hangover Part II), in what was his first movie role. who said a sequel will absolutely happen? >> Posted 02.10.12 by Ryan
After his first widely released feature, Role Models (2008), proved to be a hit at the box office, writer-director David Wain immediately began working on his follow-up, Wanderlust, with the backing of comedy wizard Judd Apatow. Starring Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston as a Manhattan couple who flee the big city and wind up at a clothing-optional commune, Wanderlust wrapped nearly a year ago and has spent months on end in post-production, but now the first trailer has finally been released. watch the trailer >> Posted 11.04.11 by BrentJS
Whether it's needed or not, it looks like there's going to be a follow-up to Meet the Fockers, which as you'll recall was the sequel to Meet the Parents, a movie that was far better than its sequel and likely better that this future one too.
Little Fockers will presumably be about the Fockers' children. Jay Roach, who directed the first two movies, will not direct this one as he's busy with Dinner for Schmucks. John Hamburg, a Ben Stiller collaborator who did drafts on both Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers, is at work on a draft of Little Fockers. A number of candidates are said to be in the running to direct, including Paul Weitz (In Good Company), David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer), and Peyton Reed (Yes Man).
Owen Wilson, who had a small role in the first two movies, could have a bigger one in this one, which is typically a good thing. Posted 02.20.09 by reelz
