Adam Sandler presents an interesting case. I suspect he’s still funny deep down, and people say he’s just an easy scapegoat for a million movies just as bad as his, but tell those people to sit through Grown Ups 2. Can you blame Adam Sandler for just giving the market what it seems to want? Yeah, kinda, I think you can. I mean watch this trailer for Blended, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, and tell me it doesn’t look like two hours of Adam Sandler flipping off the audience while he goes on an African vacation. It literally starts with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler spitting on each other.
Oh look, I see Adam Sandler plays a schlubby Joe Average who takes his first dates to Hooters, so this should be quite a departure for him. You know, maybe I was all wrong about this. Let’s all go get French onion wasted and send postcards from the nation of “Africa.”
Is it just me, or does it seem like Drew Barrymore’s acting has actually regressed since she was 7?
