Netflix Actually Paid Adam Sandler Money to Write These Native American Jokes

Get ready for a bunch of juvenile sex jokes about teepees, peepees, and "zum-zums," because not long after a dozen Native American actors walked off the set of Adam Sandler's upcoming film Ridiculous 6, Defamer got their hands on a December 2012 version of the script, and it's just as bad, if not worse, than you might have predicted.

Here's a heartwarming little scene between Sandler's character Tommy and an Apache woman named "Sits-On-Face":

A Dozen Native American Actors Just Walked off the Set of Adam Sandler's New Movie

Adam Sandler is currently filming his Magnificent Seven parody Ridiculous 6, and according to Indian Country Today, around a dozen Native American actors, as well as the film's "Native cultural advisor," just walked off the set of the film today due to its racist and sexist jokes and disrespectful portrayal of the Native characters. According to the report, the primarily Navajo actors took issue with the film giving Native women names like "Beaver's Breath" and "No Bra" as well as "an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe, and feathers inappropriately positioned on a teepee." Here's what one of the actors, [...]

'The Cobbler' Trailer Features Adam Sandler and a Magical Sewing Machine

Adam Sandler's next big dramatic role is the Thomas McCarthy-directed The Cobbler, and while it doesn't have an official premiere date yet, the first trailer was released today. It's a weird mix of serious and silly Sandler, but maybe with the help of its solid supporting cast (Dustin Hoffman, Ellen Barkin, Steve Buscemi, Method Man) it'll do well? Considering Variety called this film a "slow-motion zeppelin crash that starts as a dull-edged fable, and then spirals further and further out of control without ever growing more exciting or interesting," maybe don't get your hopes up too high.

Adam Sandler Signs a Four-Movie Deal with Netflix

Adam Sandler is coming to Netflix.

The 15 Harshest Quotes from Reviews of Adam Sandler's 'Blended'

The new Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore movie Blended came out today, and it's been drawing some pretty savage reviews from critics. Currently sitting at 14% on Rotten Tomatoes, it's hardly the most-derided Adam Sandler movie ever (that honor would go to Jack and Jill with 3%) but it's still getting dogpiled on in a way that you don't see with your average studio comedy. We've rounded up some of the meanest quotes from reviews of the movie and gathered them up below, from least-harsh to harshest:

Watch "The Fantastic Mystery of Shaq's Penis" Starring an Animated Adam Sandler

During last night's show, Conan O'Brien debuted the above video "The Fantastic Mystery of Shaq's Penis," an animated take on a weird story about Shaq Adam Sandler told when he was a guest on the show last year: "He's funnier than any of us. Swear to God. There's all comedians in the movie — every time they do a scene, everybody walks away and goes 'Shaq is funnier than me?'"

What Does it Mean to Direct an Adam Sandler Movie?

The Adam Sandler assembly line began production in 1995 with Billy Madison and has since churned out over 20 films under the Happy Madison Productions outfit starring Sandler in his well-versed comic persona of the well-meaning, flawed, likable schlub. Sandler’s brand is a veritable cottage industry, almost operating like a mini-studio, attaching him and his team of writers and producers to his projects and the smaller projects of his friends.

That distinction has been credited to [...]
