How The Wedding Singer Changed Everything for Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler

How The Wedding Singer Changed Everything for Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler
We don't have a microphone, but you'll still want to listen to this: The Wedding Singer hit theaters 20 years ago today. This was the movie that established Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore as a rom-com couple for the ages. Set in 1985, it tells the story of Robbie, the titular wedding singer, and Julia, a waitress he meets on the job, who are both engaged to the wrong people. As in Julia-Guglia-caliber wrong. Thanks to fate and a hilarious supporting cast, they (spoiler alert!) find their way to each other. The Wedding Singer, which grossed $80 million in the U.S. and more than $123 million worldwide, is a rom-com favorite to this day (and even got the musical treatment in 2006). But the fact...

Five Reasons We’ll Be Seeing New Netflix Movie “The Week Of”

There’s going to be a few reasons to see the new Netflix movie The Week Of starring Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. I know a lot of people would groan and roll their eyes when they hear that Sandler is starring in another movie since he hasn’t done anything over the top since Happy Gilmore. Well, honestly yes he has, but nothing that’s been so universally loved as that movie. Lately though he’s really been stepping his game up in an effort to show that he’s no longer the man-child that he once was and seemed to enjoy being. To

Super Bowl celebration: Top 12 greatest football films, ranked worst to best, including ‘Friday Night Lights, ‘Jerry Maguire,’ Rudy’

  • Gold Derby
The Super Bowl closes out an exciting season of NFL football this Sunday with a strong match-up between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots. So for fans to bide their time in the many months before another kick-off, it’s time to turn your attentions to the greatest football films of all time. There are all kinds of football-based films out there to enjoy — from dramas to comedies, and even an award-winning documentary — and we’ve collected the top 12 here in our photo gallery, ranked from worst to best.

In paring down the list, we had to answer the question: “Just what is a football movie?” We didn’t include “The Blind Side,” for example, because though its central character plays football, the film is primarily about many other things. And while Act 3 of Robert Altman‘s “M*A*S*H” is made up of what is arguably the

Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck, and Hollywood’s ‘Rape Factory’

Imagine a punk-rock variation on feminist theorist Laura Mulvey, speeding through a patriarchal kingdom and howling truths to the people. That’s Rose McGowan, who’s been sandblasting her way through the promotional circuit this week to promote her memoir, “Brave,” and the E! series “Citizen Rose.” Once written off as a shrill loon, she’s developed a homegrown culture jamming, rejecting conventional etiquette in a quest to destabilize masculine conventions.

“I use language to pierce the brain,” she said. “If I spoke like everybody else spoke, it would just dull everything. I might just know what I’m talking about.”

McGowan comes to her current role after a lifetime of experience. She spent the first stage of her acting career contending with performances that restricted her potential and simmered with silent rage against the misogynistic industry that put her on the map. She survived childhood in the Child of God cult,

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionGroundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionAdriana Floridia2/2/2018 11:30:00 Am

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. Then there is Harold RamisGroundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman, Phil Connors mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again. On a traditional level the movie is a comedy, but it actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years.

In honour of Groundhog Day, we’re taking a look back at ten other films that deal with time, memory, dreams, and repeated experiences. While there may be no film that tackles the topic as precisely as Groundhog Day, these

Adam Sandler and Chris Rock have teamed up on another film together called The Week Of. The film is a Netflix original and it actually looks like it could be a solid movie.

When two very different fathers (Adam Sandler and Chris Rock) come together for their children’s wedding, everything that could go wrong, does. Watch the hilarious hijinks as the two try to keep everything afloat, while dealing with their families...and each other. Before they get to the big day, they have to go through a long week.

Netflix has released the first trailer and photo for The Week Of, which reunites comedy superstars Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. This movie marks their sixth collaboration together, following 2003's Pauly Shore is Dead, 2005's The Longest Yard remake, 2008's You Don't Mess With the Zohan, 2010's Grown Ups and 2013's Grown Ups 2.

See Chris Rock, Adam Sandler Bicker in New Wedding Comedy 'The Week Of'
Chris Rock and Adam Sandler play hilariously passive aggressive fathers of a soon-to-be-married couple in the new trailer for Netflix original movie, The Week Of.

The Robert Smigel-directed comedy chronicles the chaos of two families coming together the week before a wedding. The new trailer highlights plenty of that madness – from magic tricks gone awry to Steve Buscemi inexplicably smoking a cigarette while lying on a chimney. The action is centered around Sandler and Rock having a very fatherly fight over whether to turn on the car air conditioner.

‘The Week Of’ Trailer: Adam Sandler & Chris Rock Reteam For Netflix Wedding Comedy

Oh Netflix, we don’t know what to think of you. On the one hand, you’re bankrolling films by Martin Scorsese and Charlie Kaufman, and bringing bold storytelling in documentaries, television and more to a global audience. But then, you’re also financing Adam Sandler‘s continued career of making cheap movies with his friends. In fairness, the Netflix audience is huge, but we still can’t help but be amazed at how shoddy these Sandler movies look.
