Will The Meyerowitz Stories Earn Adam Sandler an Oscar?

Adam Sandler is not exactly synonymous with the Academy Awards. With that said, we’re also mildly aware that the actor is capable of more than just Jack and Jill and That’s My Boy. The case can be argued with films such as 2007’s Reign Over Me and 2002’s Punch-Drunk Love. However, we haven’t seen much of that skill from Sandler in the most recent years; it makes one incredulous that it’s still possible. Director Noah Baumbach begs to differ and actually moves to appeal to our inhibitions by giving Sandler probably the best role of his serious acting career. The

Mindy Newell: Days Of Yore

  • Comicmix
Presenting two real-life stories from my days of yore, although names have been changed to protect both the innocent and the guilty.

Story The First:

I knew a girl in high school – I wouldn’t say we were friends, but she was someone who had never participated in the Piggy horrors. Sally was an A+ student, on the track to an Ivy League school. Pretty (but not gorgeous) and popular (but quiet about it), she came to me one day and said that she needed to talk to me privately. I was surprised… and a bit suspicious. What did she want? But because Sally had never been overtly mean to me, even though she was part of the clique that instigated most of the callous cruelties upon me, and because I still hoped to be “accepted,” and I wanted to believe for some reason she was about to warn me

Tequila Tumbles, Room Races, and Tinsley's Tears! The Craziest Moments from Rhony's Epic Mexico Trip
The ladies of The Real Housewives of New York City have had some epic vacations in the past (see: Scary Island). But Wednesday’s trip to Mexico might just take the cake!

Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann D’Agostino, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer left the Big Apple behind for a trip to Puerto Vallarta. While the President’s Day weekend getaway was supposed to bring fun in the sun and a relief from the stresses of life at home, the drama that followed proved to be anything but relaxing.

‘Funny People’ Is An Underrated Masterpiece, And Adam Sandler’s Latest Misfires Make It Even Better

‘Funny People’ Is An Underrated Masterpiece, And Adam Sandler’s Latest Misfires Make It Even Better
I’ve watched “Funny People” more times than I care to count (fun fact: Judd Apatow movies comprise roughly 40% of all cable television programming), but it never occurred to me that Apatow’s raw, shaggy, desperate masterpiece of a third feature was inspired by “The Great Gatsby.” For some reason, I didn’t automatically make the connection between The Great American Novel and a studio comedy in which Adam Sandler has sex with a stranger while pretending to be a Merman. But someone recently pointed out the parallel, and — like a Magic Eye stereogram or that bump on Jean-Claude Van Damme’s forehead — it’s the kind of thing that you can’t un-see.

Exclusive: Mark Ballas & BC Jean Open Up About Married Life, the 'Sexual' Way They Piece Together Their Music

Exclusive: Mark Ballas & BC Jean Open Up About Married Life, the 'Sexual' Way They Piece Together Their Music
Mark Ballas and BC Jean couldn't be happier.

In their first interview since tying the knot, the former Dancing With the Stars pro and his wife opened up about their wedding day, the first few months of marriage and working together creatively to Et's Cameron Mathison.

Watch: Mark Ballas Marries BC Jean in Gorgeous Southern California Wedding!

The two exchanged vows at a gorgeous ceremony in Malibu, California, surrounded by their friends, family and Ballas' DWTS pro pals last November.

"It's been amazing," Ballas said of married life. "It just feels elevated. It feels solid and great."

During their nuptials, the couple danced to "Magic" by Coldplay as their first dance, but with "a little twist," according to Jean.

Ballas chimed in, saying, "She learned [tango] and none of my friends had seen her dance ever."

"There was this move where she, like, flipped around my back and put her hand right through my legs and they got

Grown Ups reunion at Netflix as Adam Sandler and Chris Rock to team on The Week Of

Author: Scott Davis

Many eyebrows were raised when comedian Adam Sandler was signed by Netflix on a three-picture deal in what was the subscription services biggest deal at the time. The company has expanded even more since he signed, but the marriage between the two has been a happy one thus far.

While critics haven’t been particularly forgiving with Sandler’s Netflix roster so far (The Ridiculous 6, The Do Over and Sandy Wexler, the latter of which debuted earlier this month) and as such the star has now extended his deal which will see the star make a further four films for them – and he may have secured his next film. (via ComingSoon.net)

Sandler is to team with his Grown Ups co-star Chris Rock for the comedy The Week Of, which is set to start shooting in Long Island this summer with Robert Smigel directing. Smigel has

Sandy Wexler Review

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

Pantelion Films has debuted another new official Us trailer for the film How to Be a Latin Lover, a comedy from Ken Marino starring Eugenio Derbez (seen in Jack and Jill, Miracles from Heaven, The Book of Life).

Eugenio Derbez stars as the titular "Latin lover" who is dumped by the wealthy older woman he was with and is forced to move in with his sister - who is played by Salma Hayek.

5 Movies You Think Are Bad, But Are Actually Pretty Good

Welcome to The Top 5, where every week, we list five things for a given topic. These topics can range from "5 Things We Liked About The Power Rangers Teaser Trailer" to "5 Things We Want (Or Don't Want) In Ben Affleck's The Batman."

Standing right by Ballas' side as best man for the special day was fellow dance pro Derek Hough. Other members from the DWTS family in attendance included Julianne Hough, Cheryl Burke and newly engaged couple Emma Slater and Sasha Farber.

"It's a local secret wedding thing. We are going to shuttle people to a private place," Jean explained to Et back in September. "And make it really intimate and special."

"Kind of one place, but [the guests] are going to end up at another," Ballas said, adding," No snapchat, no Instagrams, no phones. We want everyone to just be there."

The Young and the Restless Recap: Phyllis Takes a Tumble

  • TVfanatic
The people of Genoa City really need to stop meddling in each other's lives.

If they'd do that, there would be far fewer people crashing and burning around town. But as it stands, the favorite pastime on The Young and the Restless is to poke around in other people's business.

Jack wanted to know why Jill betrayed him. Jill lied and came up with some dumb excuse, but it's not easy to sound logical when your idea of stemming the bleed of your son's affair with your good friend is to blackmail your friend's wife. Jack really wished she would have told him.

Granted, it probably wouldn't have made this whole scenario any better, but it could have preserved their friendship. Not that I don't fully expect Jack and Jill to recover. Jack could have also found Billy and Phyllis when they were in the throes of passion instead of "in love" and who knows?

Johnny Depp Considers Taking The Lead In Thriller LAbyrinth

Arguably, it is long past time that Johnny Depp selected a good movie project. He presumably has a very lucrative set-up with Disney regarding the ongoing Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, but lucrative deals and good films are not the same thing. He has, in recent years, filled his time with uncredited appearances (Jack And Jill, 21 Jump Street, London Fields), supporting roles (Tusk, Into The Woods, Yoga Hosers), and poorly received leads (Transcendence, Mortdecai, Black Mass, Alice through The Looking Glass) – but has not had a solid critical and financial success since 2011’s Rango. Could LAbyrinth be the film to turn things around?

The project comes with controversy baked right in. It is the screen adaptation of the overly titled LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates The Murders Of Tupac Shakur And Notorious B.I.G, The Implication Of Death Row Records’ Suge Knight, And The Origins Of The Los Angeles Police Scandal,

The Young and the Restless Recap: Close Calls and Happy Campers

  • TVfanatic
There are a lot of strategic moves happening on The Young and the Restless.

Characters are being moved around like pieces on a chessboard. Will new couples be formed or old flames re-ignited? 

Time will tell. Let's take a look at what went down this week on our favorite sudser.

The week started off rough for Philly fans with Phyllis angrily pushing Billy away in the elevator. She's trying with everything she has to convince the both of them she doesn't love Billy. It's utterly unconvincing. Nonetheless, she wonders if he gets what she's trying to say.

By way of response, Billy walks up as closely as possible to say, "Perfectly," while his breath blows a breeze into her hair. Suddenly they are face to face. Cut scene. That's all we get.

‘Power’ Showrunner Courtney Kemp Keeps Pot Boiling in Season 3

‘Power’ Showrunner Courtney Kemp Keeps Pot Boiling in Season 3
Power” kicks off its third season with a bang, sending its main characters into dramatically different directions from when we last saw them in season two.

Keeping the pot boiling is part of the design of the show, creator/exec producer Courtney Kemp said Wednesday night as the show toasted its July 17 premiere at Manhattan’s Top of the Standard. The club was so shoulder-to-shoulder packed after the season premiere screening at the Sva Theater that it was hard to take in its famous view of the Hudson River.

“It just keeps getting more intense,” Kemp said of the third season. “Power” revolves around a prominent New York City nightclub owner, played by Omari Hardwick, who is trying to shed his past life as a drug dealer. But that process becomes infinitely more complicated for the character. “The power dynamics in the show really shift this year,” Kemp promises. “It’s more hard-hitting.”
