What ya want to bet that this probably being the worst movie of Adam Sandler's career? And that it will still make at least $100 million! You gotta love Adam, he cranks  out the Sh!+, and still makes a ton of money.

Yeah, there's no accounting for taste.

I have seen two trailers for this movie in addition to an interview on the "Jon Stewart Show". Sandler and Stewart talked about their facial hair, but Sandler never commented on why he did this movie (never mind any real social commentary).  He had probably already dismissed the movie from his mind, as he has done with the other stinkers he's done in the past.
It will not be funny, because there really is nothing funny about two guys pretending to be gay to receive Firemen's "family" compensation.
Neither one seemed to be pretending that they were actually in need of money, nor did they seem very good at pretending to be gay.
I bet a lot of gay rights organizations will be screaming at the stereotypes and dumb jokes...and the Firemen of this country will really be offended!  Real Firemen have real problems with just compensation, especially gay firemen...

 
That the serious issue of "partner rights" and just Firemen's compensation should be made fun of, simply goes beyond the pale.
The movie looks to be another dumb Sandler production that will make a profit in the first two weeks and then fade into obscurity.  I personally have never liked the characters Sandler plays. He always seems to play a lovable, immature, oaf who just doesn't get it.  That a woman would fall for his stupid, bad boy image is the fault of the writers, who seem to think that real women actually love this kind of loser.

Ah, crap!  upChuck debuted at #1 with $34.5 million, and may be well on pace to reach $100 million!  What will happen if Sandler stars in Baby Geniuses 3?  Will it be a major success, and lead to a Baby Geniuses 4???

I was painting my shed for the last few days...guess I could have invited moviegoers to save their money and watch my paint dry instead...

This piece of  debuted at #1?!

For crying out - there's better movies out there! I, for one, saw Hairspray on Friday. THAT should've been #1! That, or Harry Potter 5 (which is also quite good). Seriously, WTF is up with the moviegoing public?!

I mean, seriously, I haven't seen the movie yet, but I have seen what clips have made it into trailers and various TV shows, and NOTHING made me laugh. Why would I wanna watch 110 minutes' worth of that crap?

Two things that hurt "Harry Potter 5": 

1) The release of the last Potter book Saturday morning at 12:01am, and...

 2) Hard as it may be to believe, Mr. Sandler does have a fan base (This of course is why we currently have boneheads in the White House -- Because these same people who watch his movies make political decisions on our behalf).

First Off, What the Hell do people find appealing about Adam Sandler? He's been in maybe two or three good movies, but he's almost always in really unfunny movies that I think he himself knows aren't funny. He's only in them for the money. Kevin James is pretty hilarious, but I wish he'd star in better comedies...and this definitlely is not one!

Well, some of his good films are Click, Spanglish, and 50 First Dates.

I think Jessica Biel should get nominated for this and NEXT.

I can't think of any Sandler movie that would be considered "good" or even "pretty good".
The best thing Sandler ever did was live, on stage as a stand-up comic.
.
That his movie raked in the bucks isn't surprising, because his fans keep hoping to see a really funny movie by him.  Then when word gets out that his latest isn't "it", the bucks drop off and the movie gets shipped out on DVD.

I can't believe people would rather see Adam Sandler and Kevin James  doing the honky-dory instead of going to see HAIRSPRAY!!!!!

I can't believe people in Hollywood would actually want to make a movie like this.

Then again, I can believe it!

Well you have to admit, The Truman Show was a good movie...

A thought occurs to me though. I feel much the same way about Jim Carrey, but I did get some degree of pleasure in the realization that no matter how bad of a Batman Val Kilmer was, at least we'd get to see him beat the crap out of Carrey.

God save us all: This awful, intolerant, UN-funny movie has now topped $112 million at the US/Canada box office, and now "ranks" among B.O. Mojo's top 20 box office "hits" of 2007...

Well, can we be sure that's absolutely accurate?  With some films, I wouldn't be surprised if accounting inflates the earnings after the fact, to make it look like they did better than they actually did...
