Hey guys, Jana here,

ADAM-SANDLER

In October Adam Sandler made headlines when he signed an exclusive contract with Netflix comprising of four films starring Sandler from his Happy Madison that will not have an initial theatrical run but will debut straight to the streaming provider.

Hey guys, Jana here,

HappyMadison

 

If anyone would have suggested that the mass of little red envelopes flooding the post would one day throw the entertainment industry in a tizzy, we’d have laughed at the possibility. That was 1997 and none of us had any idea of how big a shadow Netflix would end up casting. The SVOD dropped a Jaws-like bomb into the normally calm seas of the movie biz and set the choppy seas in motion by announcing their partnership with The Weinstein Company and IMAX to release ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend‘ on the same day for Netflix viewers and IMAX theaters. Not content to let the waters settle, Netflix has another partnership they want to share. The controversial company and Adam Sandler have entered a partnership that will feature a four-pack of films, starring Sandler of course, and produced under his Happy Madison banner that will go straight to the subscription members, no theater stops in between.

Hello, Jana here,

You have probably heard about the new Adam Sandler and Kevin James venture ‘Pixels‘. Don’t write this one off just because you see their names on the starring list. I know many subscribe to the theory that their comedic talents are past their prime and they give us nothing new but vapid buffoonery. I like slapstick comedy, I like the obvious joke. I appreciated the originality of ‘Grown Ups‘ and groaned with the rest of you at the dreck that was ‘Grown Ups 2‘. But I think they have a quality that works when they team up together.

Jana B. here,

adam Sandler

Chris Columbus is one of my favorite directors, with good reason, he directed ‘Adventures in Babysitting‘, ‘Home Alone‘, ‘Mrs. Doubtfire‘, the first two ‘Harry Potter‘ films and a great stage to big screen adaptation of ‘Rent‘. If Chris Columbus had a hand in the film, chances are I’ll love it.

Adam Sandler’s Next Film Will Be….

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 26th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Ridiculous 6’ is the title of the next Adam Sandler film, which he will be producing under his Happy Madison production label.  It will be a comedy western this go around, with the title sort of resembling the 1960 epic western ‘The Magnificent Seven’.  We can only imagine what Sandler and his people will do with this .

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 5th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Sony Animation has hired Adam Sandler to lead a voice cast for their new animated project ‘Hotel Transylvania’ in which Sandler will play the famous Dracula.  Kevin James, Fran Drescher, David Spade, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, Cee Lo Green and Andy Samberg also have been cast.  I hope for the best for this film, but I just can’t see this being good.

Murder Mystery – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2019

 

“Murder Mystery is a thrilling comedy that stars the Sand-Man and Jennifer Aniston.”

Adam Sandler is taking to Netflix like a fish to water these days. You won’t be seeing his latest comedic films in theaters, but rather straight to Netflix. Coming off the heels of his excellent stand-up special (also exclusively on Netflix), Sandler’s next vehicle is Murder Mystery, a thrilling comedy that stars the Sand-Man and Jennifer Aniston. The two play a married couple who want to spice up their life as they head to Europe for a vacation, where you guessed it, a murder mystery ensues. Think Murder on the Orient Express, but with Sandler in Europe. The film works best when Sandler and Aniston are having those all too-real relationship discussions where you always don’t see eye-to-eye. I was laughing out loud and relating quite a bit. Other than those sequences and dialogue, it’s silly business as usual.

Film Review: ‘Super Troopers 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 19th, 2018

I can’t believe it’s been 17 years since Broken Lizard made us love a group of Vermont State Troopers that seemed to not only solve major crimes, but have fun while doing so in their debut hit film from 2001, ‘Super Troopers‘. The improv comedy troupe of Broken Lizard have all gone on to be very successful as actors and filmmakers in film and television, and I’m so happy to tell you that everyone has come back for a sequel some 17 years later in ‘Super Troopers 2‘. Watching the original ‘Super Troopers‘ today, I can’t help but laugh the same way as when I first watched it in theaters. It still holds up, which is something rare in comedy. You never know if something is still going to be funny years from now, as we’ve seen with certain Adam Sandler films or the Scary Movie franchise. ‘Super Troopers‘ is not that way, at least not yet, and every time I watch it, it remains as funny as it was in 2001. Now is ‘Super Troopers 2‘ funny as hell? The answer is best said as “a Large Farva YES”.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix has jumped from small-screen and so-so feature film debuts to big-budget film exclusivity. I’m not saying Netflix wasn’t on their A-game before, but being the sole place to find the new Adam Sandler movie is a little different than being the only outlet to carry the new Will Smith (‘Collateral Beauty‘) action flick, and that’s exactly who they are now with the debut of ‘Bright‘.

‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ Finally Happening!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

beverly-hills-cop-4-release-date-570x294

The ‘Beverly Hills Cop‘ franchise seems to be never ending, or at least never getting up off the ground. That being said, it looks like a 4th film with Eddie Murphy is finally gaining steam once again. We’ve seen this before. Hell, we’ve seen a TV series try to take off, but never happen with this franchise. Maybe this time, it will actually happen, and we will get the Detroit cop back in California once again, solving a crime.

Will Kevin James Win an Oscar Soon?

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 24th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

No, I don’t think so, but Kevin James has signed on to star in an inspirational drama film about football. That’s right, the guy who is seen in most Adam Sandler films and the mall-cop named Paul Blart is going to the drama genre in a film called ‘44‘, distributed by Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment.

Judd Apatow is almost like Adam Sandler where his projects are hit or miss, but lately more of a miss which makes Netflix a perfect partner seeing as that’s where Sandler’s current projects are calling home. For Apatow, it’s only a comedy series right now that’s set to debut on February 19 called ‘Love‘.

Film Review: ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 26th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

o-HOTEL-TRANSYLVANIA-2-facebook

Through the misty clouds we swoop over the land and into Hotel Transylvania.  Immediately, I wish I could have viewed the film in 3D as it will be available in release.  Next, a large banner is unfurled.  Jonathan (Andy Samberg) and Mavis (Selena Gomez) are getting married.  Jonathan’s straight-laced suburban family is introduced to Mavis’ comical yet ghastly family.  Wait until you see the wedding photos.
