Friedrich Nietzche famously said "that which does not kill us makes us stronger." But there's one thing that even the legendary German philosopher could not possibly have accounted for his in ruminations: The existence of Adam Sandler's new "Grown Ups 2" trailer.
There were a whole lot of bad movies last year, but after all the votes were tallied and the industry grudges settled, Hollywood officially named the worst film of 2012 yesterday at the 33rd annual Razzie Awards — and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" was the clear
winner loser, earning Golden Raspberries in seven categories including Worst Picture.
But was it really the worst film of the year? Get More »
We've been living in denial for the better part of two decades, but we're now ready to admit it: Adam Sandler makes pretty bad movies. There, we said it.
Well, unless they're movies directed by Paul Thomas Anderson ("Punch-Drunk Love") ... or co-starring Drew Barrymore.
The on-screen lovebirds of "The Wedding Singer" and "50 First Dates" might now be set for that crucial third date as they look to possibly reunite for a new (and currently untitled) romantic comedy, according to Variety.
The film explores the growing phenomenon of "blended families" with the story of a a man and woman who, after a disastrous blind date, unexpectedly find themselves stuck at a holiday resort together with their respective kids from previous marriages. Sandler is attached to star though no official offer has been made to birthday girl Barrymore yet. Get More »
This week: Colin Farrell plays a screenwriter who gets an unexpected violent cure for his writer's block in "Seven Psychopaths," a pitch-black British comedy co-starring Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson.
Putting out a bunch of great movies like "Iron Man," "Thor," "Captain America" and "The Avengers" will buy you some major leeway among fans. You know, obviously these guys know what they're doing. But Marvel is straining fan confidence to the absolute limit today, as Latino Review is reporting that the studio is currently in talk with a couple very unlikely stars to appear in their upcoming sci-fi action blockbuster "The Guardians of the Galaxy."
Are you ready for Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey: Intergalactic superheroes?
Now, before you jump off Stark Tower, there are a coupld things to keep in mind. First, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is being directed by James Gunn, who is responsible for offbeat genre comedies like "Slither" and "Super," so you know there's going to be some weird humor in it. Secondly, Sandler and Carrey are only in very preliminary talks. And thirdly, both of them have done some really excellent voice work in the past. Get More »
Last night, the
internet voting zombies people spoke and declared who and what they favored most from 2012's crop of films at the 2013 People's Choice Awards, and to the surprise of absolutely no one it was "The Hunger Games" which came out on top of the wins list.
"Hunger Games" snagged the win for Favorite Movie as well as Favorite Action Movie, Favorite Movie Franchise and Favorite On-Screen Chemistry. The film also garnered its now two-time Oscar-nominated leading actress Jennifer Lawrence a win for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Face of Heroism, which was great because her speech was - per usual - completely adorable.

Throughout the ages, comedians with the sharpest of wits and highest of brows have sought to expand our minds and tickle our funny bones by strapping on fake boobs and speaking in falsetto. Sure, it might seem cheap, childish and subtly sexists, but who cares? Based on the box office receipts, we can't get enough of it!
Now Sean Penn is getting serious about dressing in drag for "This Must Be the Place" (in theaters Nov. 2). But can he activate our drag gag reflexes as thoroughly as those faux femmes from bygone days? Let's review the fugly competition.

This week: Wes Anderson's latest heartfelt comedy, "Moonrise Kingdom," chronicles the great romance between two 12-year-old runaways during the summer of 1965.
Also new this week is the animated sequel "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," the found footage-ish horror flick "Chernobyl Diaries," the Adam Sandler comedy "That's My Boy" and an edition of "Avatar" on Blu-ray 3D that one can buy without it being bundled with a hardware purchase. Get More »
Actors are trained to be able to portray just about anything their role calls for, but there's one thing even the best actors can't possibly fake: Singing.
That's why we're always so impressed when actors sing on screen rather than just lip-synch some professional musician. Case in point: Next week's "Pitch Perfect," which features stars such as Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson belting out tunes like the divas they were meant to be. Get More »
Just because Andy Samberg plays Adam Sandler's son in "That's My Boy" doesn't mean the latest graduate of "Saturday Night Live" is following in the Happy Madison hero's footsteps. The 33-year-old is definitely forging his own funnyguy path.
For starters, Samberg left the NBC mainstay of his own, albeit quiet, accord, opting to say farewell to the show after seven years with simply a pair of digital shorts. Secondly, he's keeping one foot on the small screen. Following promotions for "That's My Boy," he's heading to the U.K. to work on a show for the BBC.
Still, working on a film with Sandler – the first of three, with "Hotel Transylvania" and "Grown Ups 2" to come – feels like a strong start to a solid film career. Could an "SNL" spin-off flick like "Shy Ronnie" be far behind? Get More »
