    I'm going to go read that. I have wondered for years how that unfunny untalented no-personality retard was selling so many tickets. He had two or three decent bits on SNL and ZERO else. It's Idiocracy playing itself out at the theaters. What blows me away though is how full the theaters here are despite the economy. Fools are spending $65 to go with the kids to shitty movies almost every weekend.

    David Spade went on O&A and not Howard to promote the movie. Wonder if Spade is banned due all the swipes he took at Howard the last time he was on. No one has successfully made Howard look foolish since Brad Garrett as Spade did the last time he was on.

    It's a two part video. They do a great job picking apart what's wrong with the movie, but also the scam Sandler's pulling: basically offering bullshit cameo roles to all of his friends with the studio's dollar and piling on obnoxious amounts of product placement to the point that it's a distraction.

    Sandler figured out how to milk the system while delivering a shit product over and over again.

    I guess(?) I can understand why this movie was a success (Sandler, James, Rock and Spade), but if Sandler gets to do another non-ensemble movie at his current quote, something's very, very wrong.

    Jack and Jill didn't bomb. Budget of 79 million and made over 149 million.

    I grew up with Adam Sandler and for the most part I like his movies. A lot of movie snobs like to point out that they have low brow humor, but sometimes movies are fun to go to because they are entertaining.

    As for Sandler's "scam" of putting his friends in movies... he seems like a good guy who likes working with his friends so he wants to give them work. Would you rather he be like Howard and ditch his pals to befriend bigger stars?

    It grossed 150 million international, the budget doesn't include marketing. Movies often need to double their budget to break even.

    I love that you infer that I'm a movie "snob" and defend Sandler without watching the video. Watch the fucking video...if you have enough time to watch one of Sandler's pieces of shit, then you have enough time to check out the links I provided.

    Until then, enjoy Little Nicky, Jack and Jill, 50 First Dates, Spanglish and Don't Mess with thr Zohan! :facepalm:

    The question is: how does Adam Sandler's flicks compare to the Jackass movies? Better or worse?

    No, Grown-ups 2 #1 thanks to our educational system and the fact that dummies have more children now.

    Adam Sandler is horrible. I don't give a shit how many retards think his product-placement movies are funny. Just horrible.

    Those Red Letter Media guys (Mike & Jay) really expose him pretty well.

    50 First Dates was pretty good. The hobbit guy was funny. Wedding Singer wasn't too bad, either. He should make every movie with Drew Barrymore.
