Adam Sandler's 'That's My Boy' Receives 8 Razzie Nominations, Fewer than 'Jack and Jill'

Nominations for the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards, which honor the worst in film, were just announced, and the Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg vehicle That's My Boy received a whopping eight nominations. That's a lot, but it falls short of 12 nominations for Sandler's Jack and Jill last year. That's My Boy was nominated in just about every category, including Worst Picture, Worst Screen Ensemble, and Worst Actor (Adam Sandler), joining Battleship, Oogieloves, and the latest Twilight installment as one of 2012's most-nominated movies, Razzie-wise. That's My Boy had more nominations than any other comedy this year, beating out Madea's Witness Protection (4), A Thousand Words (3), What to Expect When You're Expecting (2), [...]

Summer Comedy Preview: Movies

We’re only a week into summer movie season, and it’s already overloaded with superheroes. More excitement is coming too, as Hollywood rolls out what are expected to be its biggest hits this time ever year. There's no shortage of comedies this summer, as Batman and Spider-man will be duking it out at the box office with the likes of Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, and, um, Wes Anderson.

What's in store for us comedy wise? The return of the Men in Black! A movie based on a pregnancy guidebook! A comedy based on a novel by Saddam Hussein! And a comedy that had to change its name because of the [...]

What Does the Opening Weekend Failure of 'That's My Boy' Mean?

Up until this weekend there were arguably two true movie stars: Will Smith and Adam Sandler. Now there is one (maybe) and it isn't Adam Sandler. A real movie star is not just a very famous person or an actor/actress who seems to always get big parts. Movie stars can open movies by themselves. Movie stars guarantee an $100 million box office regardless of the quality of the film. That was Adam Sandler last June but it isn't him anymore, as That's My Boy finished this past weekend in 5th place, earning only $13 million.

That's My Boy Trailer: "You Puked On My Dress and Then Fucked It!"

Waaaazzzzaaaap. Just when we least expected it, there's a movie coming out on June 15 in which Adam Sandler plays Andy Samberg's deadbeat dad. And judging by the trailer, it's not pulling any punches when it comes to gross-out humor. This Father's Day, thank your dad for teaching you how to be a real man! A bong-hitting, ear-piercing, hair-growing, Jacuzzi-sunglassing, no-shit-taking, woman-hating MAN. Burp.

Andy Samberg Talks about Missing 'SNL' While Adam Sandler Acts Like His Dad

Get More: 2012 Movie Awards, New Movies

Awwww, Adam, Andy isn't actually your son; you don't have to be so fawning. "My boy Andy is so smart and so nice and so funny and so handsome. And what a head he has on his shoulders." Adam Sandler is arguably the most financially successful former SNL cast member so there are worse people in the world to listen to. I can't wait the six months before " The Chanukah Song 2012 Rap Remix" comes out.
