The 29-year-old Saturday Night Live alum married Kennedy at her childhood church in Connecticut last September, alongside a wedding party of 16 bridesmaids and groomsmen who were family members and close friends of the couple.

Abby wore a lace gown by Leanne Marshall, while Bill donned a blue custom Duca Sartoria suit.

In keeping with tradition, the duo didn't see each other until the ceremony. "We didn't have a first look, so the first time we saw each other was at the church," Elliott shares. "And he made sure not to talk to me before the wedding or before bed the night before."

But the wedding wasn't without a couple of funny moments, thanks to the »

Adam Sandler Films On Netflix Get Half A Billion Hours Of Views

19 April 2017 8:40 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

"They gave me money to make this. Can you believe it?"

Adam Sandler. When someone utters that name these days, I tend to shudder. When once he had halfway decent films like Billy Madison and The Wedding Singer, he's now making movies especially for Netflix. It seems like a major step down for someone that used to be the king of the box office.

Yet Netflix loves the guy. According to Netflix (via Screen Rant), Adam Sandler vehicles are accounting for over half a billion hours of views on the streaming service. There are no money figures to speak of but Netflix has been happy enough with the results that they have recently given him another four picture deal.

Makin' it rain!

One part of my brain wants to be angry at this thought. The quality of Adam Sandler films has sunk so low, it's getting near the Earth's core at this point. »

Carrie Fisher Helped Write Star Wars 8

19 April 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars Celebration in Orlando kicked off last week with an epic panel that celebrated the franchise's 40th Anniversary. It included a heartwarming tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. The next day, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy joined director Rian Johnson for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel, celebrating what will ultimately be one of Carrie Fisher's last movies. Both the LucasFilm president and director paid tribute to the late actress in their own way, and Rian Johnson revealed that she even helped him write the Last Jedi script.

During the first half of the panel, hosted by Josh Gad, fans got to see a number of The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes photos that were taken by Rian Johnson on the set, one of which featured Carrie Fisher in full costume, with her feet up on a desk between takes, alongside Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) and John Boyega (Finn).

‘Sandy Wexler’ Review

18 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider | Written by Adam Sandler, Dan Bulla, Tim Herlihy, Paul Sado | Directed by Steve Brill

Sandy Wexler is the latest Netflix original film from comedian/actor Adam Sandler – part of his four picture deal with the streaming service – and tells the story of the titular character: a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s who diligently represents 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.

If there’s one thing I can count on from my fellow movie bloggers, it’s their intense disdain for the films of Adam Sandler; in particular those made as part of Sandler’s Netflix deal. »

Adam Sandler’s Latest Netflix Mandate ‘Sandy Wexler’ Could Use Better Management [Review]

14 April 2017 7:07 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are essentially two types of Adam Sandler movies, though they sometimes come in varying shades. On the left side are the more casual, laissez-faire affairs, wherein the popular comedic actor/producer plays an exaggerated variation of his real-life, good-hearted slacker persona. Some of them are charming enough (“Billy Madison,” “The Wedding Singer,” “50 First Dates“), some are mixed (“Big Daddy,” “Spanglish“), and a few are, err, curious failures (“Eight Crazy Nights,”  “Click,” “The Cobbler“), but the rest stink of cash-grabbing laziness (the “Grown Ups” movies,  “Just Go With It,” “Blended“).

Sandy Wexler Review

14 April 2017 3:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For years, having Adam Sandler’s name associated with a project has served as a kind of warning label for those who tired of his man-child schtick back in the late 1990s. Yet, despite the significant hate often lobbed Sandler’s way, he just keeps on cranking out one lowbrow comedy after another, wringing every last bit of fan goodwill with each painfully unfunny punchline. Yet, miraculously, he’s not only kept working, but also managed to land a lucrative multi-picture deal with Netflix, a contract that was recently extended. In fact, the latest effort to come from the deal, Sandy Wexler, is currently threatening to invade your home at this very moment.

In the new film, Sandler plays the titular talent agent, a pathological liar and messy eater whose fledgling agency gets a big break when he discovers singer Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson). Set in the mid-1990s, Sandy Wexler »

Newswire: Like the rest of us, Adam Sandler’s kids can’t get through his movies either

10 April 2017 9:52 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

There are good Adam Sandler movies (The Wedding Singer, Punch-Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, Funny People) and bad Adam Sandler movies (almost everything else). While his cinematic track record may be hit or miss, apparently Adam Sandler is having a hard time swaying the members of his own household to the positive side of his cinematic track record. His two daughters, Sadie and Sunny, are now old enough that they request his movies. But as Cinema Blend reports, Sandler told Ellen Degeneres when he appeared on her show last week that they don’t stick with them for very long:

I’ll put them on. Because they beg to see them. They’re like, “Please, it’s not fair! Let me watch your movies. Those people always yell things at you on the street. I don’t know what the heck they’re talking about.” So I show them the »

Adam Sandler Reveals His Kids Don’t Like his Movies Too Much

7 April 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Let’s get something straight about Adam Sandler right off the bat.  I think he’s one of the best comedians of the past 30 years and it’s not even close.   But I certainly am not ashamed to say I haven’t liked virtually anything he’s done movie wise in at least 10-15 years.   He’ll never match his Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore days.  This much we know.  But I don’t think that the quality he had in Big Daddy and The Wedding Singer isn’t too far out of reach.  Apparently it is.  But who cares?  The guy is taken care of for

Along With Netflix, Did Adam Sandler Make a Deal with the Devil Too?

24 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Let’s get something straight right now.  I was a huge Adam Sandler fan back in the day.  I liked him as Theo’s one white friend on The Cosby Show.  I loved him on Saturday Night Live.  I think he completely killed it as Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore.  Even as he got older films like Big Daddy and The Wedding Singer were pretty funny.   But then his movies started to get a little stale.  A little stupid, and yet they were still box office monsters.   Then came Little Nicky.   This is the one that did me in.  It’s the movie

Can you make ‘The Fly’ on the cheap?

19 March 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Low budget horror takes on Cronenberg’s classic

If you stopped some dude on the street and asked them about their thoughts on Fly, they would probably think you were talking about The Fly, the 1986 movie directed by David Cronenberg and starring Jeff Goldblum as an unlucky teleporter. Of course, true buffs will know that Cronenberg’s Fly is but the second iteration of man-made insect beast. And now there’s going to be a third: 20th Century Fox, the studio behind Cronenberg’s version, announced negotiations were being made with indie-horror director J.D. Dillard (Slight) to helm yet another remake of The Fly.

While this remake news might have fallen under the outrage radar thanks to a certain picture that Warner Bros. is thinking of rebooting, people around the web are still outraged. Birth. Movies. Death, the official blog of Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas, opened their coverage with “We have some terrible news.” Metro »

Table 19 Review

3 March 2017 3:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In Adam Sandler’s 1998 comedy The Wedding Singer, the actor’s emotionally distraught Robbie Hart discovers a selection of mismatched outsiders he deems “the mutants over at table 9.” Imagine an entire film centering on the wedding attendees that have all been relegated to just such a position at a wedding reception, and you have a solid idea of what Table 19 at first appears to be shooting for. Yet, while the film clearly purports itself to be an alternative take on the concept of a wedding comedy, it cannot resist the temptation to embrace cliché before the credits roll.

Written and directed by Jeffrey Blitz of the Comedy Central series Review, the film follows post-breakup Eloise (Anna Kendrick) as she and a group of strangers wind up sharing seats at the titular table. Before long, the awkward chitchat kicks in, and the gang — including a struggling married couple (Craig Robinson »

“Alexis was a great actor and had 70 credits and was really brave to live her truth as a trans woman, and they didn’t include her in the memorial,” Patricia Arquette told Et. “I think that was a real slight to the trans community, especially at this time when trans kids can’t even go to the bathroom in the United States of America at school. It says a lot about the lack of inclusion.”

Sandy Wexler Trailer Takes Adam Sandler Back to the 90s

19 January 2017 11:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Adam Sandler is back yet again with another Netflix original movie. Sandy Wexler is the third of four comedies that were part of his exclusive contact with the streaming service. And this might be the best one yet. Which, I'm sure, some of you will joke that it shouldn't be too hard to top The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over, but those have been some of Netflix's biggest original movies to date. Today, we get the first trailer for Sandy Wexler, and it's pure Sandler gold!

Sandy Wexler will do for the 90s what The Wedding Singer did for the 80s, bringing a shot of nostalgia straight to the veins of the Millennial generation. Though, Sandler let this one simmer a little bit longer. The Wedding Singer arrived in 1998, not even a decade after the 80s had passed, and not everyone was as nostalgic for the era as some teens »

A Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

7 January 2017 9:32 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2016 claimed a long list of entertainers, but the grim reaper’s most unexpected one-two punch came between the final two holidays with the death of movie icons Carrie Fisher on December 12 and her mother Debbie Reynolds a mere 36 hours later. With the premiere of the documentary about the pair, “Bright Lights” on HBO this weekend, we at the Geeks site thought we should take a look at their considerable contributions to film.

Let’s start with Carrie, who was born in Hollywood, USA on October 21, 1956, the daughter of Debbie and singer/actor Eddie Fisher. She appeared on stage with her mother throughout the late 60’s and early 70’s, even getting her first small screen credit in the 1969 TV movie “Debbie Reynolds and the Sound of Children”. It wasn’t until 1975, when she would make her big screen debut opposite Warren Beatty (quite an arrival) in Hal Ashby’s hit Shampoo. »

Drew Barrymore‘s older daughter may only be 4 years old, but she’s already developing her own fashion sense.

“My older daughter Olive is all about dressing herself now, which is such a change. It’s like, ‘Oh my God, I don’t get to dress you anymore?’ Not that kids are easy to dress because they’re really not,” the actress, author, director and producer tells People.

The Week in Star Wars – Carrie Fisher obituary, Rogue One passes $700 million, original ending revealed and more

3 January 2017 4:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On December 23rd, Carrie Fisher boarded an aeroplane from London to Los Angeles and suffered from a heart attack. She had just completed the European tour of her book. Four days later, she passed away at the age of 60.

Fisher was raised into the Hollywood industry. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was the star of screen having found fame at the age of 19 in Singin’ in the Rain and her father was pop star Eddie Fisher. She was born on October 21st 1956, just a few years after Reynolds became a star. The two would develop a close bond, captured brilliantly in a photo where Fisher, just six years old, watches her mother perform on stage.

As a child Fisher was known as the “family bookworm”, but an opportunity to star on stage alongside her mother in Irene meant that she never graduated. She moved to London where she enrolled in Central School of Speech and Drama, »
