Adam Sandler is an actor we know very well. He’s been working in comedy for years, and years, and his films regularly do very well at the box office. Back in the 90’s Sandler was hot off the heels of his stint as a cast member of Saturday Night Live, and the films that followed were his best. Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer and Big Daddy all showed a talent that Sandler possessed as a leading man in silly comedy flicks.

Freaks and Geeks Episode 2 ‘Beers and Weirs’
Directed by Jake Kasdan
The problem with most second episodes of television shows is they spend too much time re-establishing the story beats and relationship dynamics between characters from the pilot, just in case there’s a few million extra people tuning in after hearing about the first episode (spoiler: this very rarely happens… these days, most shows are lucky to maintain an audience through the second episode). ‘Beers and Weirs’ has a much better way of handling the second episode of a series: throw all the characters in the same location and observe their interactions. It’s a really organic way of adding complexities to the relationships on the show, all under the conceit of a high school trope – partying when the parents go way – with an absolutely ingenious twist.

Cinelinx weighs in on the new Heavyweights Blu-ray!
Directed by Stephen Brill
Remember the 1979 Bill Murray comedy Meatballs? It was no classic, but it was a funny and entertaining look at summer camp life. Now, imagine Meatballs set in the 1990s, minus the genuine humor and funny lead. That's the best way to describe Heavyweights, a 1995 Disney summer camp comedy remembered only for being one of Judd Apatow's early films. It also features Ben Stiller, in a limited role. Don't get too excited: this combination isn't nearly as funny as you hoped it might be.
For some odd reason, Disney seems to think we're all big fans of this film, because they have cranked out a special »
