Adam Sandler movies can be hit and/or miss. Hit: Billy Madison. Miss: Little Nicky. But even the misses have their moments. That’s My Boy, the latest from Happy Madison studios, has just enough funny moments to makes up for the missing ‘je ne sais quoi’ that will keep this from being a hit comedy.
Then again, am I being too analytical here? That’s My Boy, which co-stars Andy Samberg as the ‘straight man’, follows any basic Adam Sandler movie formula: insane premise + old ladies in sexual context = leads to wacky endings.
This comedy also comes with lots of bonus SNL cast member appearances, and a few genuine laugh out loud moments that serve to remind me why I love Adam Sandler sometimes. Check out the trailer, and my quick review (with minimal spoilers) after the jump!
This past Thursday I had the amazing privilege to talk to the legendary actress and horror icon Dee Wallace about her new film Exit Humanity, which makes its way onto DVD June 19th. The majority of our conversation was spent talking about the film, why she was drawn to the role of Eve and working with director John Geddes. We’ll have that feature up closer to the release of the film (which I recommend checking out – it’s one of the most unusual and beautifully shot zombie films I’ve ever watched ), but close to the end of our conversation I asked Dee what she could say about another of her films, Rob Zombie’s upcoming, The Lords of Salem. Dee’s worked with Zombie before, on Halloween and The Haunted World of El Superbeasto and, as you’ll see below, was full of love for the man I consider the best director in horror right now. Our exchange on The Lords of Salem was brief, but it gives us a little more insight into what we can expect from the film when it’s released later this year. Check out Dee’s comments after the jump.
