Sony Pictures

Adam Sandler is gonna have a lot more to worry about than his upcoming trainwreck film, "Grown Ups 2". As of last week, the actor may find himself caught up in a lawsuit regarding his eight-time Razzie-nominated film — and Sandler's second Worst Actor win in a row! — "That's My Boy".

Richard Houpert, a Boston carpenter who worked on the set of Sandler's 2012 movie, is suing for $1 million in damages after being injured on set. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Houpert has filed a lawsuit against Sony Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Sandler's Happy Madison Productions after sustaining fractures and losing several fingers on his right hand.

Yuck: The 10 Grossest Comedy Movie Scenes Ever

Fox

They're called gags for a reason, folks.

The idea of gross-out comedy is nothing new: Since the dawn of modern cinema, filmmakers have tried to capture audiences' "yucks" along with their yuks. Beginning with 1914's silent feature "Nell's Eugenic Wedding," in which a character eats soap and then repeatedly vomits for supposed chuckles, bodily fluids, nudity and innuendo have been trotted out for an uncomfortable laugh.

This weekend sees the release of "Movie 43," perhaps the granddaddy of all gross-out movies, consisting of several comedy shorts strung together to make an aggressively raunchy full-length movie. Boasting some of Hollywood's top names — Emma Stone, Hugh Jackman and Elizabeth Banks, to name just a few — performing unspeakable acts, some wide-eyed moviegoers may find the flick tough to stomach.

They say the best way to acclimate to a new experience or overcome a phobia is to face it. "Movie 43" doesn't come out in theaters until this weekend, so we can't show you more than the trailer right now, but we can condition you with the most gag-worthy gags in recent memory. Without further ado, please enjoy ("enjoy") the 10 gross-out movie scenes that haunt our dreams. Get More »

'Gossip Girl' Stars on the Big Screen: Who Does It Best?

Blake Lively in The Savages Universal
It seems like just yesterday that Serena van der Woodsen was coming back from boarding school to find that her former BFF, Blair Waldorf, had become Queen Bee. Tonight, TV's "Gossip Girl" comes to an end, leaving with it a slew of absurdly attractive young stars unemployed.

Of course, we've seen a number of them on to the silver screen already — including Leighton Meester "That's My Boy" and "The Oranges" and Blake Lively in Oliver Stone's "Savages."

Since the world of these privileged few thrives on competition, it only made sense to see which GG star's movie career leaves the rest of the beautiful people in the dust. Read our (very scientific) rankings to find out, then weigh in yourself in our poll below. Get More »

'Madagascar 3' Rocks 'Rock of Ages' At The Box Office

DreamWorks

What was supposed to be a big weekend for new movies turned out to be a big weekend for old movies, as holdovers "Madagascar 3" and "Prometheus" took the top two spots at the box office following disappointing debuts for "Rock of Ages" and "That's My Boy."

According to Film.com, "Madagascar 3" held on to the number one position for the second week running thanks to a strong $35.5 million take, while second place "Prometheus" brought in an additional $20.1 million. "Rock of Ages" finished in third with $15.1 million, while "That's My Boy" wound up way back in fifth with just $13 million.

For a full run down of the weekend box office, including figures for returning hits "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Men in Black 3," head to Film.com.

GALLERY: That's Our Girl, Leighton Meester!

Whether it's film, television or music, Leighton Meester can do it all. To top it off, she looks great no matter what she's doing, from dazzling as a country diva in "Country Strong" to sporting Upper East Side chic in "Gossip Girl" to looking oh so scary in "The Roommate."

In fact, Leighton even makes playing a regular person look way better than most of us look in our daily lives. In her latest comedy, "That's My Boy," Leighton manages to stay looking pretty while trying to keep her fiancee, played by Andy Samberg, from partying too hard with his estranged father (Adam Sandler) on their wedding weekend.

Don't worry, though. You won't find any bridezillas here. This week's Hot People Looking Hot gallery looks anything but scary.

Q&A: Andy Samberg Says Farewell to 'SNL,' Hello to the Sandler Fold

Getty Images

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 »
