Alright boys and girls. Hold your nose, here it goes.
Time to award the 2011 MAJOR Award for Worst Actor.
These five clowns really disgraced themselves this year. Lackluster efforts, garbagey characters, gawd awful attempts at comedy… each of these hacks gave new meaning to the term “epic fail”.
Your Nominees are: Nicolas Cage, “Season of the Witch”, Taylor Lautner, “Abduction”, Martin Lawrence, “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son”, and Adam Sandler for “Jack and Jill”, and again for “Just go With It”.
It’s dull, it’s dumb, it predictably tries to turn into a “tug at the heartstrings” type movie along the way. Adam Sandler isn’t just ugly as hell in drag, he makes his “sister” character a shrill, annoying, emotionally fragile nightmare of a character.
But maybe I’ve just run out of hyperbole for the weekend, maybe I’m just happy a movie tries to entertain after the waterboarding that was “J. Edgar”, maybe I’m just happy to still be sane after watching “Immortals”.
Whatever it is, I’m feeling merciful here, sorry if that disappoints anyone.
While it’s FAR from recommendable, by any strecth of the imagination, it’s not the horrifying F minus minus of a movie that I thought it would be.
Premiering this weekend on Starz was this year’s “Just Go With It,” starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Brooklyn Decker.
“Just Go With It” is the story of a plastic surgeon (Sandler) who wears a wedding ring to pick up girls, even though he’s not married. When he finally meets the woman of his dreams (Decker), she finds the ring he uses, even though he hadn’t used it to pick her up. She mistakenly believes he’s a married man who was cheating on his wife with her. In order to convince her he’s not, he tells her he’s divorced. One lie leads to another and before you know it, he’s backed into saying he has children.
It’s the latest in a long line of reasons why someone needs to stop Adam Sandler from making movies.
