    Director Jason Reitman Circling 'Men, Women & Children' With Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt And Jennifer Garner

    Jason Reitman is about to have a very busy Toronto. In addition to unveiling his new film, the already seriously polarizing crime drama "Labor Day," starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet (you can read our take on it here), he is also staging one of his starry script readings, this time of Paul Thoma...

    Why 'Grown Ups 2' Scoring Best Sony Opening Day Since 'Skyfall' Is No Surprise; 'Fruitvale Station' Opens Strong

    Dennis Dugan's name doesn't often come to mind when thinking of top American directors. But the one-time actor (whose lead role in ABC's short-lived 1970s "Richie Brockelman, Private Eye" was his acting high point) has over the last two decades made 17 films that in total have amassed a domestic gro...

    Review: 'Grown Ups 2' Starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock & David Spade

    Spoiler alert: the very last joke of “Grown Ups 2” involves a character passing gas on Salma Hayek. This is Salma Hayek, one of the great actresses of international cinema, a global star in multiple languages, one of the most beautiful women in the world, and an Oscar nominee. This is Salma Hayek, w...

    Retrospective Shabadoo! The Films Of Adam Sandler

    Beloved on “Saturday Night Live” and loved a lot less since then, one need look no further than recent conversations about a box office weekend showdown (“Pacific Rim” vs. “Grown Ups 2”) to see just how far Adam Sandler's reputation has sunk with some audiences. Often perceived as a moronic blight o...

    So, there's two ways to look at this story: as a reteaming between Colin Firth and Emily Blunt who star in "Arthur Newman" opening today or as the rare non-Happy Madison outing by Adam Sandler. We'll let you decide which one you want to go with, but the bottom line is this is a pretty good, and unex...

    Watch: Taylor Lautner Is Funnier Than Adam Sandler In Trailer For 'Grown Ups 2'

    So, this summer marks a not so momentous occasion: "Grown Ups 2" is the first Adam Sandler sequel. And in making the followup to the smash hit "Grown Ups" -- a movie we still have a tough time believing anyone actually liked, even though lots of people went to see it for some reason -- Sandler round...

    Drew Barrymore Confirmed For Adam Sandler's Next Paid Vacation/Rom-Com

    Spring is coming, which means Adam Sandler needs another paid vacation with his friends, so he's deciding to make a new movie.
