Adam Sandler movies get a lot of flak, and in many cases, the poor reviews are well deserved. Try and think back to the Happy Madison productions that you actually really enjoyed, and no, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer do not count. For me there are a few, but they’re still heavily outnumbered by the garbage titles; The Benchwarmers and the Grown Ups films were all stellar, and who can forget arguably Sandler’s best film since the original golden three in Grandma’s Boy? On that thought, if you were not a fan of Grandma’s Boy, it’s probably best if you just go ahead and click the red “x” in your browser right now, because SQ may not be the best website for you. So fast forward to today, in which we have yet Sandler’s latest film, Blended, which brings back Drew Barrymore yet again after two previous co-starring roles; the trailer is above – check it out then hit the link below for our slightly qualified thoughts!
Quick: name me one movie that had absolutely zero actors/actresses you recognized that turned out to be hilarious, or just plain amazing. Can you do it? The first movie that popped into my head was a little film called Sex Drive, which featured all no-name (at the time, and I think still to this day) main characters, but did feature a Seth Green cameo at the end. The movie itself was absolutely hilarious, and I remember seeing the trailer months beforehand thinking that it had potential. While most of those types of movies don’t pan out, Let’s Be Cops, which is slated to hit theaters this summer on August 13th, looks like yet another rare diamond in the rough. Check out the official red band trailer for Let’s Be Cops above, then hit the jump below for more slightly qualified thoughts!
