Adam Sandler, Johnny Depp and Ryan Reynolds Named Most Overpaid Actors of 2014

23 December 2014 10:24 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This is one of those lists that you don't really want to see your name on twice, amirite? Adam Sandler landed at the top of Forbes' list for the top ten most overpaid actors after taking home the not-so-awesome honors last year. According to their calculations, the Saturday Night Live alum did manage to do well with his last movie, Grown Ups 2, but it wasn't enough to cover the costs of Jack and Jill and That's My Boy—which were both box office blows. Next up on the unfortunate list is none other than Johnny Depp, who despite starring in several hit films over the last few years, seems to be a bit of a wildcard in terms of box office success. Depp's The Pirates of the »

Sony Employees Really Wish They’d Release Fewer Adam Sandler Films

4 December 2014 3:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When an unknown group of hackers (who may or may not be North Korean) leaked thousands of Sony's files, we didn't just find out what K. Fed was paid to cameo in The Interview and whether Annie's any good or not. In a text file called "Sony_2012_Comments," we also found a treasure trove of feedback from unknown Sony employees. Gawker sorted through the whole thing and found one common complaint: People at Sony really don't like working for a place that makes so many Adam Sandler movies. (Since 2008, the studio has released You Don't Mess With the Zohan, Grown Ups, Just Go With It, Jack and Jill, That's My Boy, and Grown Ups 2.)A selection of the employee complaints: Be more focussed and ruthless in directing our resources to businesses that will sustain the long term health of Spe - networks, broadcast TV shows, new movie franchises, digital »

Horrible Bosses 2 review

30 November 2014 9:49 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The sequel to Horrible Bosses is too content to rest on the first film's laurels, rather than doing anything of any real note...

It's not often that we reasonably expect a sequel to win over new converts, especially those who hated the original, and in that regard, Horrible Bosses 2 does not disappoint. By the same token, anybody who loved Horrible Bosses will probably find stuff to like here too. On the other hand, there's no way to tell how you will react if (like this reviewer) you had mostly forgotten about the original.

Director Seth Gordon and lead actors Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day enjoyed a surprise critical and commercial hit back in the summer of 2011. Their hapless Strangers On A Train-style plot to murder each other's loathsome employers won over cinemagoers, particularly with a comedic chemistry that made them something like the Three Stooges for the modern R-rated comedy audience. »

Chris Rock on Tracy Morgan's Recovery and How Et's Nischelle Turner Inspired 'Top Five'

26 November 2014 4:29 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Chris Rock's Top Five is coming to theaters Dec. 12 and the comedian admitted to Et's Nischelle Turner that she inspired one of the moments in the movie.

"Three years ago at Sundance you said to me, 'So wait, are you a real journalist or Miss Detroit?'" Nischelle reminded Chris during her interview. "And lo and behold, the first thing you say in the movie to Rosario [Dawson] is [the same thing] ... Basically, I inspired this film."

News: What You Didn't Know About Chris Rock

"Yes," Chris admitted. "You kind of inspired this film."

In the film, written and directed by Chris, he plays Andre Allen, a comedian who tries to make it as a serious actor when his reality TV star fiancée (Gabrielle Union) talks him into broadcasting their wedding on her show. Rosario plays a journalist assigned to interview Andre for The New York Times.

Chris says that character is very loosely based on himself -- with some »

Film Review: Horrible Bosses 2

26 November 2014 7:27 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Horrible Bosses 2 would be more aptly titled Terrible Criminals 2. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are back as the three sorriest excuses for wannabe felons the big screen has ever seen. Luckily, their failed criminal exploits are the subject of great mirth, and this sequel is a worthy follow-up to 2011's original surprise box office hit.

Bateman, Sudeikis and Day once again play Nick, Kurt and Dale, who this time are trying to start a business of their own. They want to be their own bosses for once, and they create a product called the Shower Buddy. They appear on a local morning news show, where they're seen by Chris Pine's character Rex Hanson. Rex works at his dad's company Boulder Stream, a huge catalog retailer that wants to buy the Shower Buddy. His father Bert, played by Christoph Waltz, agrees to place an order for the product, »

'Horrible Bosses 2' Review: Why the Comedy Sequel Isn't As Horrible As You Might Think

26 November 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first "Horrible Bosses" landed as a solid hard-r hit back in 2011, thanks to audiences falling for Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day as a lovably bumbling trio of would-be criminals. Well, that, and the appeal of watching Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston saying dirty words.

So Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day) are back again for "Horrible Bosses 2," having ditched the nine-to-five to start their own business. But even though they're their own horrible bosses now, they're still having problems with upper-management types, in the form of the father/son team of potential investors Bert and Rex Hanson, played by Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine.

Of course, comedy sequels haven't always had the best track record; it's a delicate balance recapturing what worked in the first film without just delivering the same movie with new punchlines. (See: "The Hangover Part II.") Not to mention, three idiots »

'Horrible Bosses 2' (2014) Movie Review

24 November 2014 9:19 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Horrible Bosses 2 is one of those rare instances where the comedy sequel is better than the original. Then again, I wasn't exactly a fan of 2011's Horrible Bosses (my review here). Walking into the sequel I also couldn't tell you much about the first one. I remember the cast included returning stars Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as Nick, Dale and Kurt and their "horrible" bosses were Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell, all of which but Farrell have returned for the sequel. I wouldn't have been able to tell you whose boss each of them had been, though, but does that even matterc It's a comedy, it's meant to make us laugh and keep us entertained for 90-120 minutes and Horrible Bosses 2 does that, and what makes it better than several comedies I've seen as of late is the fact I'd have no problem »

'The Flash': Jesse L. Martin On Joe's Worries Over Barry

14 October 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Grant Gustin's Barry Allen is in over his head in this week's episode of "The Flash."

Barry is continuing to put himself in harm's way (before he understands all of the changes to his body) and the man who raised him, Jesse L. Martin's Joe West, is very, very worried.

"That's my boy, so anything he does, I'm gonna worry about," Jesse told Access Hollywood, previewing the freshman drama's second episode, "Fastest Man Alive," airing Tuesday night. "If he's getting himself into these mysterious and like highly dangerous situations, I'm gonna worry about him."

The 4 Movies Adam Sandler Absolutely Should Make for Netflix

3 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

News broke this week that Adam Sandler, the clown prince of Hollywood who has seen recent big screen efforts like "Blended" fail terribly at the box office, signed a four-picture deal with Netflix, you know, that thing that steals your entire weekend because you decided it was a good idea to re-watch all of "The X-Files." It was something of a groundbreaking move, considering that Netflix has largely been the home of older films and, more recently, original television programming. This is a big step in whatever grand designs Netflix has, a truly expensive and envelope-pushing endeavor that raises a number of provocative questions.

Perhaps the biggest and loudest question, of course, is: what will the movies be?

We think we have some pretty good ideas, things that would make his collaboration with Netflix as innovative on a creative side as it is on a business one (keep in mind »

3 October 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We've been hearing about a big screen adaptation of the "Baywatch" TV series for many years. And now comes word that Paramount Pictures is pushing forward with the film and has brought on Dwayne Johnson to play the lead role. Johnson confirmed his involvement on Instagram, stating: "This is my beach b*tch! Rumors are true... we're making #Baywatch the movie. Edgy, raunchy and hopefully, funny as all hell. Cue slo-mo running on the beach." The new movie will be directed by Sean Anders (That's My Boy, Horrible Bosses 2) and John Morris (We're the Millers). Justin Malen (Bad Teacher 2) has been hired to rewrite the script. »

Dwayne Johnson to star in Baywatch movie

2 October 2014 10:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The long-mooted Baywatch movie is happening - and Dwayne Johnson is taking the lead role...

After a prolonged spell in development hell, it's suddenly full steam ahead on the planned movie of Baywatch. Behind the camera, the screenplay is set to be rewritten by Justin Malen, whilst Sean Anders and John Morris are set to direct the movie. The pair previously penned We're The Millers, and Anders has directed the likes of Horrible Bosses 2, That's My Boy and Sex Drive previously.

They've landed quite a coup with their casting already too, as it's been confirmed that Dwayne Johnson is set to headline the new movie.

It's unclear at this stage whether Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff will make their originally planned cameos. But as for Johnson? He's been happy to confirm the project, as the following post to his Instagram page might just prove...

There's no release date for Baywatch yet, »

Adam Sandler Signs Four Film Deal With Netflix

2 October 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Following on from their acquiring distribution of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, Netflix have announced they have completed negotiations on a four film deal with Adam Sandler, which will see his Happy Madison Productions work with the online streaming service on four exclusive movies, produced by and starring the comedy actor. Despite recent failures like That's my Boy and Blended, the actor still has a loyal fan base, Grown Ups 2 grossing $250 million worldwide can attest to that, and no doubt Netflix are counting on their considerable support with this deal. It'll be interesting to see what movies come out of this deal, not having to worry about box office grosses could see the actor go back to something akin to his better, earlier movies, or even the dramas where he strangely excels. On the other hand, it could lead to Grown-Ups 3, 4, 5, and 6. »

Watch: Shower Buddies Unite in Third Trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2'

30 September 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There they are! They're my Shower Buddies!" Warner Bros has posted yet another trailer for Sean Anders' sequel Horrible Bosses 2, starring everyone's favorite goofballs: Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman and Charlie Day. This time they go to battle against Chris Pine who plays a "slick investor", with the always-cunning Christoph Waltz in the mix, too. Of course, Jamie Foxx is back and so is Jennifer Aniston, keeping things interesting as always. Before this we featured a teaser trailer and another full trailer for the sequel that has another wacky kidnap plot that probably won't go as planned. It looks fun, but may not top the first one. Too many jokes that are timely topical, and not enough of a better story this time. Take a look. Here's the third official trailer for Sean Anders' Horrible Bosses 2, direct from Warner Bros: Horrible Bosses 2 is directed by Sean Anders »

Exclusive Cool Video: Men, Women & Children/Grown Ups mash-up trailer

Last week a trailer for Adam Sandler's Men, Women & Children was released, and most of you seemed to like the first look at Jason Reitman's new movie. But just because Sandler is appearing in a film that likely won't feature that many fart jokes doesn't mean we've forgiven him for starring in movies like Jack And Jill, That's My Boy, and of course, Grown Ups.

New on DVD/Blu-ray: Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore Reunite for 'Blended'

Blended - Warner Bros. - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Frank Coraci Cast: Adam SandlerDrew BarrymoreJoel McHaleKevin NealonWendi McLendon-Covey. Full cast + crew Adam Sandler's been on autopilot for awhile now, with each lame new comedy drying up the well of good will he earned in the '90s and early '00s. So you'd expect Blended, his latest rom-com with costar Drew Barrymore, to be yet another Grown Ups or That's My Boy, but it's actually kind of a sweet movie about two single parents past their prime trying to move on with their lives. It's also got an absurd premise and is way too long at nearly two hours in length, but it's charming, Barrymore is delightful and it isn't riddled with a lot of...

Forget the summer, did 'Guardians of the Galaxy' just save the rest of 2014?

4 August 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's taken a few months, but moviegoers finally found another summer movie they adore. "Boyhood" has a very passionate fan base, but that awards-worthy player still isn't in enough theaters to come close to qualifying for nationwide release. No, America and some parts of the world have gone nuts for James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and with not a moment to spare. Frankly, this summer movie season has mostly been a box office dud from a studio perspective. That's somewhat perplexing considering the quality of films in May and June were surprisingly strong. "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Neighbors," "22 Jump Street," "Maleficent," "The Fault in Our Stars," "Edge of Tomorrow" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" guaranteed there was at least one good movie opening almost every weekend over the first six weeks of the summer. The box office results were mixed, however. "Days" was the biggest »
