Yahoo just released this clip (after the jump) of Funny People director Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler talking about Funny People, and how Seth Rogen’s character’s relationship with Adam Sandler in the movie is kind of like Apatow’s relationship with Sandler back in the 80s/early 90s (PS, that picture couldn’t get any gayer if they were standing 69-ing and listening to Lady Gaga). Anyway, I didn’t watch the whole thing because I’m really excited for this movie and I don’t want to spoil my appetite and I have a really really good feeling about this one, and I don’t care so judge me all you want you big meanie.
I know Adam Sandler is known mostly for making awful movies nowadays, but I still remember where I was when I first heard “The Buffoon Meets with the Dean of Admissions” like it was the goddamn Kennedy assassination. It was kind of like the day I went through comedic puberty. I guess what I’m saying is that no matter how many times he lets us down, there’ll always be some tiny part of me that’s waiting for Adam Sandler to stop sucking and be my hero again. For youngish comedy writers, Adam Sandler is our OJ.
