    Today In Unexpected Pairings: Kevin James & Emily Watson Star In Indie 'Little Boy'

    Plus Will The Portly Comedian Appear In Charlie Kaufman's 'Frank & Francis'?We may be about to be stripped of our snark cred, but we don't hate Kevin James. He's a decent enough actor, has some comic timing, and is a firmly likable screen presence. We do, however, hate virtually every film he's made: a cynical string of fatty-fall-over gags tied to the loosest possible plot you could think of. But with "The Zookeeper" failing to meet box office expectations (taking half of the gross of James' last vehicle "Paul Blart: Mall Cop"), the chubby funnyman may be heading for a change of tack, with the news that he's teaming up with Oscar nominee Emi...

    Review: A Fat Man, Animals That Sound Like Sitcom Characters & The Terrible 'Zookeeper'

    Early on in “Zookeeper,” Sony’s latest commercially craven piece of garbage from Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company, an animal sees two bears fighting. Her response is, “They look like two bean bag chairs!” Ignoring the idea that this character, a giraffe, has probably never even seen a...

    'Grown Ups' Reunion: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade & More Voice 'Hotel Transylvania'

    You gotta hand it to Adam Sandler. No matter what you might think of his puerile excuses for movies, he's made a career out of getting paid to hang out with his friends and deliver loosely patched together series of images that he calls "movies." And he's getting another chance to roll with his homi...

    Review: 'The Dilemma' Chooses Wacky Hijinks Over Intelligent Comedy

    Overrated screenwriter Allan Loeb is curiously one of the most in-demand writers in Hollywood right now, and we're beginning to understand why. His screenplays tend to sell high-concept work which makes executives and producers feel good about themselves, but the actual execution undermines whatever originality and vigor the original premise may have had, keeping things safe for mainstream audiences to embrace without thinking too much, which makes studio heads happy. But if you look closer, Allan Loeb seems to be writing the same script over and over with entire plots hanging on one character struggling to tell somebody the secret he's holdi...

    Adam Sandler & Kevin James Are Going To Park Cars Hilariously In 'Valet Guys'

    There is a very simple formula for pitching and selling a Kevin James comedy. Fat guy + blue collar job + hijinks = comedy gold. He's been a fireman, a mall cop, next summer he'll be a zookeeper and now, Kevin James along with his fart joke companion Adam Sandler, is set to be a valet guy in the app...
