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!
Adam Sandler movies will never get old; they may not be as funny as his Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison days, but they will sure sell tickets. Grown Ups was a nice surprise when it hit theaters three years ago, but Sandler brought all of his star power buddies with him for that one; then again, he pretty much does that with every film, doesn’t he? We’re not complaining. Well on July 12th Sandler & Co are back on the big screen for the Grown Ups sequel, Grown Ups 2; while I’m sure it will sell well, how will it rank amongst the towering stack of other Grade A comedies getting released this summer, like The Internship, or This Is The End? 2013 is one of the best looking years for comedies in years; label me excited!
