AND IF the MOVIE PLAYS az WELL in THEATRES az the GROAN-and-BOO-INDUCING TRAILER HAS BEEN for WEEKS NOW, SANDLER's LONG REIGN of TERROR az a BIG BOX OFFICE "COMEDY" STAR MAY FINALLY BE COMING to an END...

Okay, So I saw a review where someone said that Vanilla Ice was the best part of the movie -- Is that bad, or is that bad?!?  
 
Also, I'm in a bit of a quandary here: We have three possible contenders for Worst Supporting Actress in this movie that could all be really juicy targets. We have Leighton Meester, that woman who married Borat (Luenell), and Susan Saradon. I see no sign of Sarandon in the trailers (though her real life daughter shows up), leading me to believe that she must appear towards the end in a "heart-wrenching" scene. Don't know for sure, but that's my guess. Really, what I'm trying to get at here is that I doubt all three of them will make the Nominating Ballot. Which one would you choose, Headrazz?  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Since it's not being pre-screened, I have not yet seen the film. But based on who she is (and what she should be doing with her talents) my gut sez to go with Sarandon, who is, after all, clearly capable of better things...

Not sure if it's merely another movie with the same title, or Sandler's film is a remake of an old Martin & Lewis comedy from the mid-1950s, but when I Googled "That's My Boy movie poster," this is one of the images that came up...

I'd like to point out that Sandler rarely does R-rated movies. I don't know, maybe that'll change something. He hasn't been nominated for a Vits Award yet, but he's in major consideration for JACK & JILL. But the cast does include Vits Award nominees:
-Andy Samberg (winner for Best Comedy Song as a member of The Lonely Island). His first lead role (HOT ROD) was a box office flop.
-Leighton Meester (nominated for Best Movie Ensemble and Worst TV Ensemble). She should've been nominated for a Razzie last year.
-Nick Swardson (nominated for Worst Over-The-Top Movie Performance). Do I need to say more?
The other acting legend who could be nominated for a Razzie is James Caan. Also, despite not being directed by him, there's a cameo by Dennis Dugan. When WHAT THE FLICK said that Sandler should get rid of him, they didn't mean just as a director!

The script writer is David Caspe, creator of HAPPY ENDINGS. I've never seen it, but it's considered one of the best current Sitcoms that never gets nominated for anything. The director is Sean Anders, who previously directed SEX DRIVE, considered the least bad Teen Movie of the last couple of years. He also wrote HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE and Vits Award nominee for Worst Movie Actress MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS, all average comedies.

I checked. The plot of the 1950's That's My Boy has Martin's character trying to get Lewis's character to become a football player. The Adam Sandler film is about him trying to get a sum of money from his son to stay out of jail. Different plot lines, so I'd say it doesn't count as a remake.

Let me guess: The 2012 That's My Boy involves Adam Sandler's character trying to come up with money to bond out of prison on charges of armed bank robbery?
 
Does anyone here find it suspicious that there are still no pre-release reviews on Rotten T or Metacritic, with just 3 days to go before release? When a film with RAZZIE pedigree has to hide its reviews from everyone, that usually implies a single-digit percent approval rating is impending, and I think that's definitely the case here. Alas, I doubt this'll win Worst Picture, because I don't recall two consecutive Worst Picture winners with the same lead actor. 
 
All 4 films Adam Sandler was involved in last year made the bottom 10 tier of the Bottom 40 Films of 2011: Zookeeper got #9, Just Go With It got #6, Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star got #2, and Jack and Jill got #1.
 
...and yet my intuition says Candy Land will be worse than Jack and Jill and equally as bad as Born to Be a Star, and that the Tonka film will be about as bad as Anger Management (Bottom 40 Films of 2003, #29) or Grown-Ups (Bottom 40 Films of 2010, #13)

Underworld Awakening wasn't pre-screened for critics either. 

I think the real reason they're not pre-screening this is because they know most of the critics don't like Adam Sandler (not that it will matter at the box office).

Additionally the Three Stooges didn't have any reviews posted until two days before it's release, however it was part of it's diotic marketing (the commercials only showed one positive review, instead of going for the other positive reviews that had been made, making it out to be a complete disaster). But Stooges ended up with a 47% positive at RT.

I'm not saying the reviews on this film will be as bad as Jack and Jill or Born to Be a Star. But the only thing standing between this film and us is Sean Anders' resume. His only director credit is Sex Drive (2008), with a below average approval rating of 46%. If Adam Sandler is still the "patience tester" that he's been since the 3rd quarter of 2011, then this'll probably get somewhere in the 20-29% range of approval ratings. 
 
And I'm calling Rock of Ages a flop because its reviews are oscillating between 25 and 35% approval rating, and since Adam Shankman's bad credits outweigh his good, it'll probably end up in the upper 20's at the highest. With the shortage of RAZZIE contenders so far this year, I'm thinking both That's My Boy and Rock of Ages could be considered "ours."

I was just looking over the "all star cast" for this train wreck. I noted above that Dan Patrick and the Danettes are making an appearance...but here are a few other notables. Vanilla Ice, as someone noted above. If this is his vehicle to attempt to revive his almost career, I'm thinking he is in for a bitter disappointment. James Caan...answering the looming question, how deep is James Caan's career flushed? Tony Orlando...Dawn is not making an appearance. But one can only wonder how many retirement homes and large cardboard boxes they had to sift through on Hollywood Boulevard to find him. Luenell and Ciara....at this moment I have to confess I have no idea who either one of them are. Maybe they should use their royalties from this film to buy last names. Susan Sarandon...the question "why?" comes to mind. Rex Ryan...perhaps he is looking for a new gig after the looming Tebow disaster in New York wrecks his coaching career. Alan Thicke...I suspect he will be wearing a "LOOK! I'M STILL ALIVE!" tee shirt. Four other cast members with the last name "Sandler." Nespotism much? Rich Eisen...I guess just being a writer for Sports Illustrated isn't enough for some guys.  Todd Bridges....evidently he is out on bond....and hundreds of others!

Luenell played the woman that Borat ended up marrying. Ciara is an R&B singer. I've never heard any of her songs except one called Love Sex Magic featuring Justin Timberlake.
 
Oh, and you forgot to mention that Eva Amurri, Susan's real life daughter. Eva plays the younger version of Susan's character in this.

For me, Cage's performance in GHOST RIDER 2 is his worst so far (the one in THE WICKER MAN is his funniest). Meanwhile, Sandler (just like Eddie Murphy) feels a lot more comfortable when let loose in an R-rated movie than restrained in a G or PG-rated movie. So maybe Sandler will be good it won't be Sandler's worst performance.

R.T. (15-20%): "While it does represent a new foray into raunch for the normally PG-13 Sandler, the film finds him repeating himself to diminishing effect... and dragging Andy Samberg down with him". That implies that Samberg isn't bad, right?

First--Adam Sandler's "Candyland". I'm sure that Sandler and his writing "Partner" will insert a couple Hershey Highway jokes into this:

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1924441/news/1924441/weekly-ketchup-adam-sandler-to-conquer-emcandy-landem/

And next--Adam Sandler presents The Tonka Trucks Movie...Given his track record, I predict that Sandler will go TRUCK himself over this:

Who was the genius who thought it would be a good idea to release a movie about a broken father-son relationship on Father's Day?! As for ROCK OF AGES... maybe the Jukebox Musical craze is about the variety. Both GLEE and SMASH have music of every genre and from every decade. So a Musical with only '80s Rock may not sound so appealing to younger movie-goers.

Another problem with Rock Of Ages is that most of the '80s music they used sucked. When you're making a musical, Poison, Extreme, Warrant, Whitesnake, Starship, and especially Bon Jovi are not the bands you want.

UP-DATE from Head RAZZberry: This morning's Los Angeles Times features a lengthy article by industry analyst Patrick Goldstein openly asking whether the disastrous grosses for THAT'S MY BOY ( http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=ihateyoudad.htm - http://www.razzies.com/history/12winners.asp - http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/moviesnow/la-et-big-picture-20120619,0,3472318.story -

The article is right about something having changed in his career, but I don't think it has as much to do with him as the fact that his fans have grown up while he hasn't. We already know the specific type of movie Sandler has to make to gross over $100 million, and I think THAT'S MY BOY being R-rated meant that his fans saw it as a different movie (just like with his less-successful dramas). I don't think it was him jumping the shark. How could he have run out of ideas now if all his movies are so similar? And I don't think he's too old for doing his routine, because juvenile humour can't get old. That's why he won a Kids Choice Award for JACK & JILL.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: It may seem to be nit-picking, I'm pretty sure Sandler's Kids' Choice win was generically for Favorite Comedy Actor, rather than specifically for any one film. Lest we forget, Sandler had a role, either on-screen or behind-the-scenes, in four 2011 movies: JUST GO WITH IT, ZOOKEEPER and BUCKY LARSON, as well as the egregious JACK & JILL...

No doubt that Sandler jas jumped the shark, but I actually think that he jumped it with that crappy Mr. Deeds remake. Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and The Waterboy are "stupid fun" movies, Big Daddy was his first truely bad "Adam Sandler" movie, so I'll cut him some slack, and while Little Nicky was horrically unwatchable, at least Sandler actually tried something "new" with that. Mr. Deeds, on the other hand, was just a lazy regurgitation of his past roles and is (with exception of his roles in non "Adam Sandler" movies) the only role he's played in the past decade.

I think it's less Jack & Jill being his best to the deciders and more that being the only movie they could nominate him for. He was barely in Zookeeper, wasn't even in Bucky Larson, and Just Go With It was a PG-13 sex comedy and the moral guardians would be, rightfully, upset that a movie like that was nominated. Meanwhile, Jack & Jill was rated PG.

After watching "That's My Boy" I am convinced that it deserves Razzie nominations. 

Adam Sandler should be nominated for Worst Actor. As usual, his performance is annoyingly terrible. 

Nick Swardson should be nominated for Worst Supporting Actor. He just as annoying as Adam Sandler. 

Leighton Meester should get the nomination for Worst Supporting Actress. Her performance was quite wooden. 

Director Sean Anders deserves the Worst Director nomination for constructing this crap. He definitely put too much emphasis on crudeness and not enough on actual humor. 

Screenwriter David Caspe is worthy of getting the nod for Worst Screenplay. After watching the movie it's obvious that he could have easily written a decent satirical piece. Unfortunately he followed Adam Sandler's orders and wrote a bad farce.

Ok, I'm going to man up now, and admit that I didn't hate the movie (as a whole) as much as I expected to. Since I always try to go into a film with an open mind and be objective, I will say that I don't think it was as unwatchable as Jack and Jill. The judge at the beginning made me chuckle, as did the New Kids tattoo. And when Han gets stunned and farts I had to laugh (even though I tried to stop myself) I also didn't mind Leighton Meester and even felt sympathetic to Samberg's character.
I particularly can't stand Sandler's acting. I always see Sandler, even with a terribly annoying voice and outfit, as just being Sandler. Who knows, with some unknown, talented actor I might have enjoyed this a little more. 

The worst thing about it was the story. The beginning was just plain terrible, it's so low, gloryfying child molestation, disguised as every teenage boy's dream. Inbetween it's making fun of psychological problems the son carries from having experienced a difficult childhood. The ending is almost equally tasteless. All stuffed into a supposedly "funny" comedy movie, which is not meant to be taken seriously. 
 
FYC: Adam Sandler for Worst Actor, Nick Swardson for WSA, Worst Screenplay for David Caspe, Worst Screen Couple Milo Ventemiglia and Leighton Meester

If the final Twilight doesn't "win," then I predict this will -- based on "Razzie pedigree" and the fact that it even failed to make its budget back...

I wasn't planning on seeing this so soon, but I just did because requests are priorities to me.

For your consideration:
-Worst Actor for Adam Sandler.
-Worst Supp. Actor for both Nick Swardson and James Caan.
-Worst Ensemble.
-Worst Screenplay.
-Worst Picture.

Here's something funny: Although Armond White usually likes bad movies, this time http://cityarts.info/2012/06/20/the-sandler-memo/ -

Okay, So I saw a review where someone said that Vanilla Ice was the best part of the movie
The 2nd best part. The best was Todd Bridges.

Screenwriter David Caspe is worthy of getting the nod for Worst Screenplay. After watching the movie it's obvious that he could have easily written a decent satirical piece. Unfortunately he followed Adam Sandler's orders and wrote a bad farce.
I don't know, man (or woman?). While Sandler usually has creative control over the jokes, the storylines are usually the same before and after he puts his claws on the script. It felt like Caspe did want to make a story that promotes comformism.

Oh f**k. So, according to Armond White That's My Boy is a misunderstood piece of art, judged by elitistic sophisticated snotnoses. Women licking your jizz - must be art then. Farting - a form of f*art. Adam Sandler - the one who dares to point out "taboos" of our society - must be amazing and we are all blind fools. I would give Sandler props for doing so - if only he had actually succeeded in "pinpointing" stuff out to his audience. After all, how many have started to actively support the law in the fight against child molestation, incest or child abuse? My guesstimation would be really low, and I can't blame anybody, since the movie buried serious subjects underneath tons of bad jokes, unrelateable characters, an unrealistic story and sh*t acting. And in comparision, how many people have laughed about it and not wasted another thought?
If Sandler has had holier than holy goals, he fell hard, since those terribly awfully mean dumb movie goers weren't even interested in what he had to say. And obviously noone took it seriously anyways. FAIL.


EDIT: I'm still annoyed about that lame conspiracy theory. Also, I'm curious what messages Sandler was sending with Jack & Jill according to White.

The same he did in this and most of his movies: "Family is important". Although, throughout the years, it's been more like "You have to tolerate your family, even if they're the worst people in the world". Yeah, I know people who follow that rule.

Well duh! Most of us wouldn't have a choice as long as we want to inherit our parents' money. I'm not sure of any other reasons for pushing fake loyalty if there are any.
But no, following White's theories, that would be too easy. Adam Sandler is a genius, remember? There MUST be more to the movie than the obvious tagline. No way the movie was simply a piece of sh*t and failed despite whatever good or bad intentions! It's just that people weren't smart enough to get it, ya know?
Anyway, hopefully Nick Swardson will get what's coming to him.

Adam Sandler movies cannot get enough nominations.  Although it's assured of making the final ballot, it will probably be more like I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry than it will be Jack & Jill.  Even so, pile them on, Razzie voters, pile them on!
 
I wonder what's next?  Adam Sandler plays a Razzie voter voting for. . . Adam Sandler!  HAHAHAHA. . . oh, wait, better not give him any ideas. . . .
