It can sometimes feel impossible to keep up with the original shows and movies Netflix is debuting on their streaming platform, but aside from that (probably profitable) Adam Sandler deal, they have a habit of showing off some pretty good taste. For example, they spent $50 million so the great South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho […]

Justin Bieber's latest paparazzi pic has turned into meme central!
The "Sorry" singer was spotted out and about in West Hollywood, California, on Wednesday, rocking glasses, red-and-gray kicks and a light-wash denim jacket. But all eyes were on his sweatpants, thanks to the giant wet spot front and center.
After the photo was released, the 22-year-old pop star took to Twitter to explain what went wrong, while poking fun at himself at the same time.
"Someone got me flowers and I was driving, made a turn, and the water spilled on my d**k area," he tweeted. "Didn't bother me if it made ya laugh nice!"
"You ain't cool »
#JustinPeeber can come to an end. After Justin Bieber was spotted walking in Los Angeles with a large wet stain on his sweatpants, many wondered if he had peed himself. The debate took the Twittersphere by storm, subsequently launching the trending hashtag, but the "Love Yourself" crooner has cleared the air—only after making fun of himself, of course. At first The Biebs took to Instagram Thursday to share a Billy Madison meme that featured Bieber's pee photo and Adam Sandler from the popular comedy. "You ain't cool unless you pee your pants," Bieber captioned the picture, quoting Sandler from the scene where he intentionally spills water on his pants to stop kids from bullying a student »
Fans were taken aback by a photo shared by Justin Bieber on his Instagram page, with a big wet stain on his pants. Pasted alongside a photo of Adam Sandler from “Billy Madison” in a similar predicament, Bieber wrote in the caption: “You ain’t cool unless you pee your pants.” While Beliebers throughout the world […] »

Justin Bieber has had his fair share of accidents in public — most of them involving high-profile falls while on tour.
So when the 22-year-old pop star was seen walking down the streets of West Hollywood, Los Angeles on Thursday with a giant wet stain on the crotch of his designer sweatpants, the Internet obviously just assumed Bieber had peed himself. (Yes, #JustinPeeber was a thing.)
But the “Love Yourself” singer has a totally reasonable explanation.
Late in the evening on Thursday, Biebs set the record straight about the source of the stain. “Someone got me flowers and I was driving, »

It’s Oscar weekend! But how well do the Academy Award choices of ten years ago hold up? We’ve taken a look...
The Academy Awards are the highest profile snapshot of what films are highly rated within 12 months of their release. What they can’t predict, however, is how well regarded their choices will age, and only time can tell you that. Which is why I thought it’d be interesting to go back a decade, and see how the winners of the 79th Academy Awards, handed out on February 25th 2007, stack up ten years on…
Best Picture: The Departed
An Academy Award nomination has long been considered one of the greatest honors in filmmaking. But not all movies that earn accolades from the Academy are ultimately considered successes by critics and audiences.
These eight films definitely took beatings in the press, but excelled so much in particular areas that they were included in the movie industry’s biggest night.
Suicide Squad (2016)
Despite its record-breaking opening weekend, the highly anticipated DC superhero romp inspired some pretty harsh words from reviewers. Vanity Fair called it “ugly and boring,” while Time advised, “Harley Quinn’s entrance is the best moment in Suicide Squad. »

We’re halfway through Adam Sandler’s four movie exclusive Netflix deal, and it’s safe to say the previous two efforts, The Ridiculous Six and The Do-Over, has been business as usual for Sandler, i.e. unfunny and border line tasteless. The penultimate movie of the deal, Sandy Wexler, probably won’t change anything. The first trailer is here, bringing in an array of stars (and Sandler’s friends), from Judd Apatow to Chris Rock to Conan O’Brien, to introduce us to the titular talent agent and his uncouth approach to making his clients stars. Oh yes, and Sandler is once again adopting a strong voice. Whoopee!!! Check it out for yourself below. Sandy Wexler hits Netflix worldwide on April 14th. »

Chicago – “Fist Fight” is such a thin premise it can’t even sustain its own two minute trailer, much less a feature length film. That premise, what there is of it, is simple – English teacher (Charlie Day) and History Teacher (Ice Cube) get involved in an altercation with a student on the last day of class, at a failing high school known for senior pranks.
And that’s it. The entire running time is spent with Ice Cube glowering, and Charlie Day sputtering about trying to avoid the impending beatdown. There have been a lot of crappy studio comedies over the past few years, but this one stands out as something you can imagine even Adam Sandler turning down because of its shoddiness.
The film has no basis in reality, »

Following the brief teaser trailer released last month, Netflix has now unleashed a full trailer for their upcoming comedy Sandy Wexler, starring Adam Sandler as the title character. This comedy marks the third movie in his four-picture deal with the streaming service, which has already yielded the 2015 Western The Ridiculous Six and last year's The Do-Over. While the comedy superstar reunites with several of his frequent collaborators, this movie shows Adam Sandler sharing the spotlight with Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson.
Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler) is a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, diligently representing a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park. Over the course of a decade, the two of »
It’ll premiere on April 14th, and in order to generate some semblance of excitement, the online streamer has today rolled out the really rather bizarre first trailer. Unlike The Ridiculous Six (Western) and The Do-Over (action/comedy), Sandy Wexler doesn’t quite know which genre it belongs to. Opening with a shot of Sandler as the bumbling talent manager, the footage above ranges from hammy melodrama to oddball comedy all in the space of two minutes, with cameos from the likes of Chris Rock to Conan O’Brien thrown in for good measure. Can it find an audience in two months’ time? It’s worth remembering that The Do-Over found its way into Netflix’s top »

Adam Sandler‘s cinematic career has many peaks and valleys, but there is little argument that one of this finest performances is in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s swooningly romantic “Punch-Drunk Love.” The story of a toilet accessories salesman who overcomes his own insecurities to win the girl of his dreams is Sandler at his most contained and sweet, but one of the inspirations he drew on for his character may surprise you.

Continuing his feature film deal with Netflix, this spring brings another comedy from Adam Sandler, and this time he’s taking us all the way back to 1994. Sandy Wexler follows Adam Sandler as a goober of a talent agent, complete with one of those silly voices that he loves to have in his movies. While […]

With just two month to go until Sandy Wexler arrives on Netflix, the streaming service has released a new trailer for the upcoming comedy which sees Adam Sandler once again reteaming with director Steven Brill (Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, The Do-Over) as he takes on the role of the titular talent manager, who finds himself falling in love with one of his clients, played by Jennifer Hudson.

In what might turn out to be a prescient bit, the first full trailer for Sandy Wexler opens with famous comedians like Chris Rock and Conan O’Brien mocking the titular character, a talent agent played by Adam Sandler. No one—not Pauly Shore, Dana Carvey, or Sandler regular David Spade—really has anything good to say about the bespectacled guy who’s been relegated to the periphery of success. But it’s cool, because Sandy Wexler allows Sandler to travel back to the ’90s, obviously one of his favorite decades, for a story about a middling agent who seems oddly condescending of the movies he watches. But he’s immediately impressed by Jennifer Hudson’s undiscovered singer, so he’s going to try to make her a star. If only we all had such a polo-wearing fairy godfather.
Sandy Wexler hits your Netflix queue on April 14.

Adam Sandler’s movies still have their fans, which is why he’s still getting to make movies. He’s been partnering with Netflix recently for a series of movies, and so far they’ve been…right. Anyway. The newest one on the way is Sandy Wexler, a movie about an outlandish, obnoxious talent manager. It has Sandler doing some trademark goofy voice, and of course, appearances... Read More »

The most remarkable thing you can probably say about Adam Sandler‘s “Sandy Wexler,” his third film for Netflix, is that it’s not an excuse to take a vacation to an exotic location. In fact, it looks like it was made on the cheap on studio backlots, so perhaps the streaming service is teaching the comedian to tighten his belt a bit. But at any rate, the results look just as dispiriting as you’d expect.

The tagline did not lie. We laughed. We cried. We hurled.
Wayne’s World premiered 25 years ago today! Speaking to Et throughout the film’s production, stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey discussed the origin of the popular Saturday Night Live characters as they were making their film debut.
When Wayne (Myers) and Garth (Carvey) hit the big screen in 1992, it had been over a decade since The Blues Brothers, SNL’s first foray into feature films. Debuting in 1989, the characters appeared on the sketch comedy institution several times with guests that included Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, Mary Tyler Moore and Madonna.
The 1990 sketch with Hanks proved especially memorable (“sibilance”), with Aerosmith jamming out a cover of the Wayne’s World theme song and Myers’ titular character evolving in real time. It may have proved to be a vital tipping point toward its future movie adaptation, as development on the screenplay began that year.

Ever since her breakout performance in 1992 as Mona Lisa Vito in My Cousin Vinny, which earned her the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, Marisa Tomei has always made bold and interesting choices on-screen, allowing her to slip in and out of Oscar-bait indies, romantic comedies, Adam Sandler vehicles and even the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Aunt May Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. The same can be said for the actress’ stage work, which most recently included playwright Will Eno’s Broadway debut, The Realistic Joneses, and a Williamstown Theatre Festival production of a Tennessee Williams play.
Her latest is the new play by Sarah Ruhl, How to Transcend a Happy Marriage, opening at Lincoln Center Theater on March 20, with previews starting Feb. 23. “I'd long admired Sarah Ruhl’s writing and hoped for the chance to work with her someday, and when I saw what this play was about, I was drawn even further under her spell »
