    Of course Adam Sandler stars in it. He knocks up his HS teacher, then reconnects with his son 30 years later:

    Glad to see Sandler is back doing the serious stuff. I smell an Oscar.

    Wow, Rex Ryan really went downmarket with his return to filmmaking.

    LaTourneau wants to know what she has to do to get a piece of the residuals.

    A.) I despise Adam Sandler on every level.
    B.) Not a huge Samberg fan either.
    C.) They both play it EXACTLY AS I WOULD HAVE IMAGINED.
    D.) It still looks better than Jack and Jill did.

    Sandler has done some funny stuff, but there is something about him I find unlikeable.

    I'm the opposite: I feel like Sandler is likely a pretty good person, but I find the vast majority of his movies unwatchable and morally bankrupt.

    Agree with manfredi. Sandler seems like a great guy, but boy does he not get what is funny. He needs to get back to films like Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, which don't rely on high concepts, attempt a coherent plot and aren't afraid to revel in absurdist humor.

    As for 'Jack and Jill,' I cut him a break because it was PG -- stupidity is OK when catering to families. But a rated R film like this? No thanks.
