Forums - Movies & TV - Adam Sandler scammed Sony Pictures?

hahaha I've watched 7 minutes of the review so far (gonna finish it in a second) but right now these 2 guys are idiots, especially the fat one on the left.

I'm not defending Jack and Jill at all (haven't and won't watch it)...But damn these guys say Sander isn't funny at all when they have like the lamest friggin skit at the beginning which isn't even slightly humorous. And the guy on the left says he hates Sandler then he admits he hasn't seen any of his movies?? What a joke, he's basing his hate off of Sandler not being as funny as a legend like Chris Farley on SNL. That's like saying Steve Yzerman sucks dick because he's not as good as Mario Lemieux.

I admit Sander movies suck recently but Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy, Big Daddy, Mr. Deeds, The Longest Yard and Eight Crazy Nights were all great. And I'd even say Grown Ups and Click weren't too bad.

I think that most of his movies cost around 80 million to develop, so this is really nothing too far out of the way. If it fails to make money then there will be a problem. I think This one is going to have a hard time to make its money over here, but overseas Sandler movies usually do well.

Now Universal is the one who over pays for almost all of their movies.


Sandler movies don't do especially well overseas, most Sandler movies make a lot less money overseas. A lot of movies does 2-3 times more money overseas than domestically, Sandler movies does LESS money overseas than domestically. Actually, pretty much every hit movie does most of their money overseas, Sandler movies don't. Even Brad Pitt is much more popular actor overseas than Adam Sandler.

Maybe in the past, but these days Sandler is gold everywhere!

Just go with it:

Domestic:  $103,028,109    47.9%  
Foreign:  $111,917,482    52.1%  
Worldwide:  $214,945,591  

 

Grown ups was lower, but it still did well!

Total Lifetime Grosses
Domestic:  $162,001,186    59.7%  
Foreign:  $109,429,003    40.3%  
Worldwide:  $271,430,189  

Bed time stories:

Foreign:  $102,772,467    48.3%

Zohan did 99 million overseas, just below Americas 100 million.

Then you get to Chuck and Larry which did not do as well.

So you are right, and wrong. As am I. Still overseas should give this a good boost, just from looking at the subject matter.

Thats why you should see the review first and then write something because they did talk about Sandler's first three movies which were ok, If you like Sandler movies is alright nothing wrong with that but their review was more about how lazy Sandler has become and now is just about money for him, Grown Ups for me is one of the worst movies ever actually its not even a movie is just Sandler and his friends ripping each other for an hour and then ends. I laugh more in that review that in any of Sandler movies.



I was gonna post a thread for this last night after I watched the "review" for Jack and Jill. I've really enjoyed the last few Half in the Bag episodes because I like when Mike and Jay go in depth and get creative when talking about the movies they saw, instead of just saying they sucked or were meh for 10-15 minutes.

Can't wait for Plinkett's Indy 4 review which will hopefully be done before the end of the year. They haven't done a major review since Episode III at the beginning of this year. Yeah they did Cop Dog but it was like their Avatar and Baby's Day Out reviews... funny but short and more of an appetizer for bigger and better things to come.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

You really need to watch the whole review... Part 2 is where things really get goin, and the ending is where the "skit" really pays off.  The whole premise of these "review" episodes is that they're supposed to be VCR repairmen and they've been charging crazy old man Plinkett like $75 an hour to fix his VCR since the first episode.

Good review. They really go into details.  Some of the ideas (the guy on the left had) were very good.  Too bad Sandler got lazy.  I haven't seen any sandler movies lately, but did love his earlier ones. Started losing interest in his movies since with Mr. Deeds (last Sandler movie I saw at a theater).

I guess he makes a lot of Mexican jokes in this movie.  Is he a racist?  Probably not - who knows?  but I did enjoy his lesser known movie -- Spanglish.

I did eventually finish the review (part 1, didn't watch part 2). The actual review of Jack and Jill is pretty funny and in depth, I don't have a single problem with what they said about the movie. I just still find it ridiculous that the guy on the left can say as many bad things as he says about Sandler with having only seen Jack and Jill and Punch-Drunk Love. You can't form a proper opinion about an actor when you've only seen his worst ever movie plus a movie like PDL which is outside of Sandler's usual genre. 

But I do agree Sandler sucks ass now and is super lazy. I really think he should just retire from acting, or at least try a different genre (something more serious perhaps)

I did finish part 1, I guess I'll have to watch part 2 when I get a chance then.
