Coming up with our list of 9 Favorite Christmas Movie Characters was hard — there are so many to choose from. From Jack Skellington to Buddy the Elf, those holiday hams have earned a permanent place in our Christmas traditions.
That said, it wasn't half as hard as coming up with a list of our favorite Hanukkah movie characters. As a holiday gift to you, dear readers, we spent days hours minutes combing through dozens of a couple Hanukkah movies to pick out the 2 Greatest Hanukkah Characters Of All Time!
It's no "Billy Madison," but kudos to Sandler for making an animated movie musical about the Festival of Lights. Davey Stone is a terrible guy, embittered by the death of his family on Hanukkah 20 years ago, and determined to drown his sorrows in booze for all time.

Adam Sandler (Hotel Transylvania) will make his own Blazing Saddles. He'll write, produce and star in the comedy western Ridiculous 6. The title sounds a lot like it could be a spoof of the western classic The Magnificent Seven, but Sandler's Happy Madison production company isn't releasing any details. Of course, with the "6" it looks like Kevin James, David Spade and Rob Schneider can count on some work - who wants to bet Schneider plays a Mexican, since he seems to take on a different ethnicity in every Sandler movie (Native American in Bedtime Stories, Asian minister in Here Comes Chuck and Larry, Chinese Waiter in Eight Crazy Nights, Nazo the Italian Delivery Man in Mr. Deeds, etc.)
Sandler will cowrite the film with his long time collaborator and former "SNL" writer Tim Herlihy who has either written or produced most of Sandler's movies. Paramount Pictures will put the movie into »

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
On the heels of the recent spate of horror animations – Paranorman and Frankenweenie – comes Adam Sandler’s family-friendly submission, which has the executive producer and star’s sense of humour stamped all over it – from the immature jokes, the silly voices, the protagonist’s penchant for singing (Groan!) and the supporting cast made up of the usual mainstays of comedy.
The setting is the archetypal castle in Transylvania, which count Dracula (Sandler) has turned into a fortress to protect his daughter Mavis from the evil humans who murdered his wife. It is also a Hotel for all monsters wishing to escape from the human world. Every year he throws a lavish party for Mavis and invites all of his closest friends (Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Werewolf and countless other ubiquitous characters of the horror genre – all voiced by Sandler’s buddies).

So far the first couple trailers for Hotel Transylvania have promised the big screen goofiness of Adam Sandler but in an animated family friendly package this time. Though Sandler ventured into animation with Eight Crazy Nights before, this seems to be a little less crass and creative, even if Sandler is bringing all his usual buddies like Kevin James, David Spade and Steve Buscemi into the mix. Now each of the stars get a character poster along with Selena Gomez as Dracula's daughter Mavis and Fran Drescher as Frankenstein's wife. All the characters resemble their voice stars, especially Spade. See what I mean below! Here are the character posters for Genndy Tartakovsky's Hotel Transylvania from Yahoo: Genndy Tartakovsky directs Hotel Transylvania with a script from Kevin Hageman, Dan Hageman and David I. Stern. The film follows Dracula (Adam Sandler) struggling to keep his daughter (Selena Gomez) from becoming obsessed »

Logic would dictate that since Battleship sunk at the box office earlier this summer, any and all future movies based on board games or toys should be put out of their misery. Unfortunately, logic is in short supply in Hollywood these days, because the madness continues. This week Hasbro has announced another new project being set up at Sony Pictures, not based on a board game, but rather a very well-known toy line. That's right... Tonka Trucks are about to get their very own feature film and Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions will be helping to make it a reality. Here's what Sony Pictures Digital Productions president Bob Osher had to say about the movie: "In its 65 years, Tonka has become more than a toy or a brand; Tonka trucks are a rite of passage for kids all around the world... Time spent with these toys creates memories that »
