Sandler plays twins

10.28.2009

    (Not So) Funny People

An actor playing a set of twins isn't uncommon in comedies and dramas alike (shivers of Jeremy Irons in DEAD RINGER overtake me...) but what if it's brother and sister? And what if they're played by Adam Sandler? Funny or damn creepy?

Sadly it ain't a sequel to HAPPY GILMORE - that would be funny, Sandler playing Happy and his biker-chick sister...- but a comedy pitch called JACK & JILL written by comedian Ben Zook. No idea what it's about so for now we'll just assume the nursery rhyme with the same title is the basis. You know, they're going up the hill 'n all... actually can't remember how it goes. Anyone?

No director is yet attached but Sandler's Happy Madison shingle and distributor Sony hope to film next spring for an early 2011 release.

Extra Tidbit: Apparently Sandler sucks at golf AND hockey... dude! You were Happy!!!

Sandlers been synonymous with crap for a long time now. Big Daddy was probably his last good film.

Picture is fitting.

This sounds like a "too bad to be true" comedy pitch from Sandler's character's filmography in Funny People. Apparently, playing a character who is dying (but not really) from cancer doesn't teach you anything about making better movies.

What ever happened to Scary Madison Productions?? They made that one shitty Shortcut film. What a bust. Love the Sand Man though.

Let's just hope the characters aren't from the south like The Waterboy

The pic above is from Funny People. This could be really funny...but the title Jack & Jill would be really good for a horror movie.

That picture looks pretty funny! I hope this is better than that stupid Zohan movie! I have to admit there were some funny parts but it was pretty dumb for the most part! I haven't seen Funny People yet but it looks like it's more for adults than his latest stuff. I think his best stuff has been Reign On Me, and Spanglish.
