I did. I know Adam Sandler has his fans, but I ain't one of 'em. Frank Capra is rolling over...
Yes, yes I did. Then my wife turns to me and says, "that looks good, I think Adam Sandler's funny."
Yes, I cringed. Awful, awful trailer, made even worse by people actually laughing at the "humor".
I haven't seen the trailer...but, by the replies here...Am I to assume that this is just another Sandler movie? If so, I say big whoop because you couldn't pay me enough to actually see it anyways. His schtick was tired 4 films ago.
I cringe any time I see Adam Sandler. He's the poster boy for the state of comedy today in America.
Allow me to disagree:
1. Adam Sandler is funny.
2. Even if this movie sucks, it doesn't affect the original.
3. Far from cringing, I liked it.
For the record, the original is one of my favorite movies.
This awful-looking trailer was just one of a series I had to endure before Spider-Man started. Talk about being in an acting (and I use the term very loosely....) rut -- this movie looks like just about every other movie Adam Sandler has ever made (with the possible exception of The Wedding Singer, an endearing little film, and a fairly un-Sandler-like flick). But as someone else observed, the audience seemed to laugh right along for the most part. Sigh. I guess this is why shows like The Bachelor or Fear Factor do so well....
I don't mind Adam Sandler, but I wonder why he expects audiences to constantly accept the fact that every one of his characters is incredibly good at fighting. Every time he gets into a fight (with the exception of Bob Barker--obviously they're not going to have Sandler beat an old man half to death) he decisively brutalizes his opponent. To me this seems like overcompensation on Sandler's behalf. I'll bet he got beat up a lot of a kid, and he deals with those bad memories by making all of his characters improbably good at fighting, even to the point of being bullies. I know it's a minor thing but it bothers me.
Not as much as I cringed during the awful trailer for The New Guy...I've been forced to watch this trailer countless times since late last summer!
I can't take it anymore!
As far as I'm concerned, there was BILLY MADISON and HAPPY GILMORE (let's get OAR on the dvd Universal) as guilty pleasures, but that is all.
Adam Sandler sucks! He always does the same stupid movies. I don't understand why so many people find him funny.
Nope. I liked the songs used and I thought Winona Ryder looked great.
I didn't cringe, I was one of those stupid people that laughed (the bit with the foot and the last tennisball scene mostly). And yes, Winona Ryder looks amazing in this, it looks like she's put on a few pounds or just looks older or whatever, but I've never seen her look this good before.
So nope, no cringing from me.
Did Winona get convicted while I wasn't looking? Maybe this is part of her sentence....
Didn't cringe. I laughed a few times. Yeah I'll go see it cause do I really have anything better to spend 5 bucks on? Plus I think it'll be decent.
Actually I liked Billy Madison and will admit to LMAO at Waterboy but Sandler as Gary Cooper fills me with violent thoughts. Sandler's own last 2 movie's have been so bad he feels the need to rip off a real filmmaker.
Usually my wife's asleep on the couch or reading a book while I watch movies. If she tries to watch something, 95% of the time she falls asleep. She even fell asleep during Requiem For A Dream!
