‘Blended’ - the latest movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore - isn’t a horrifically bad movie. It’s actually even a little better than what you’d expect from Adam Sandler these days – but I did find it terribly depressing to watch.
Oftentimes when stars film new features in exotic locations, they'll spend the majority of their press tour talking about how much the new place changed them and their perspectives and their very souls. That didn't happen to Adam Sandler. The 'Blended' star hit 'The Late Show' last night, and although he quite admirably tried to convince host David Letterman that filming his new comedy with Drew Barrymore in Africa really did change him, it's fairly obvious from the get-go that Sandler's still up to his old tricks. This time, however, they involve animals lurking in the background.
In 2000, former commercials director McG resurrected classic '70s television series 'Charlie's Angels' for a flashy, exciting and totally modern big screen adaptation. Featuring the trio of Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, the action comedy followed three ass-kicking heroines and private investigators who work for an unseen millionaire named Charlie. With the help of go-between Bosley (Bill Murray), the Angels must work to uncover the secret behind a kidnapped software genius. Thirteen years later, we revisit the cast of this fun flick and see what they're up to now.
'The Wedding Singer' came out in 1998, so it's possible that people who went on a date to see the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore movie in theaters could have teenagers now. That's reflected in the trailer for their third outing together as the duo both play single parents who go on the same family vacation to Africa.
The 1998 rom-com 'The Wedding Singer' stars Adam Sandler as broken-hearted 80s wedding singer (obviously) who falls for a cocktail waitress played by Drew Barrymore -- but there's a problem: she's engaged to a total jerk. The film marked the first on-screen coupling between Sandler and Barrymore, who would go on to reunite in '50 First Dates' and are re-teaming for an upcoming romantic comedy. 15 years later, we revisit Sandler, Barrymore, and the rest of the cast of this retro delight and see what they're up to now.
In 1996, a horror movie was released that reinvigorated the genre by flipping it on its head. Wes Craven's 'Scream' starred Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, a young woman tormented by a psycho killer in a ghost-face mask that would instantly become iconic. The film took a meta approach to tired old horror tropes, directly calling them out and utilizing them in inventive ways. 'Scream' spawned three sequels (and will soon be a series on MTV), making it one of the most beloved horror franchises. Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
You know it because it's happened to you.
You settle into your seat at you local multiplex, excited to see the latest movie starring your favorite actor. The lights dim, the projector kicks into action, the movie starts and then
Ready your inner child, readers, because 'E.T. The Extra Terrestrial' is returning to theaters on October 3, just in time for that amazing and long-awaited Blu-ray release on October 9. Stock up on Reese's Pieces because we're about to phone home all over again.
Drew Barrymore is now a multihyphenate, as the actress can now be called a Actress-Producer-Director. 'Whip It' was her first feature behind the camera and now she's at it again - this time for Warner Bros - who hooked her up with their drama 'The End.'
