Every few months, RollingStone.com shines a spotlight on a forgotten, neglected, overshadowed, under-appreciated and/or critically maligned film that we love in a series we’re calling “Be Kind, Rewind.” Our latest movie: the Adam Sandler comedy Billy Madison. “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”—Corinthians 13:11, King James Bible “Stop looking at me, Swan!!!” — Billy Madison, to bath fixture It’s the giant taunting penguin that does it. For the first few minutes, you could be watching any raunchcom that carbon-dates back to the late Eighties or early-to-mid-Nineties (in this case, 1995), the kind featuring a shirtless dude floating in a pool with a baseball cap on his head and a drink in his hand. The fact that he’s also singing to a bottle of sunscreen (“Suntan lotion/is good for me/you protect … [Read more...] about American Idiot: Why ‘Billy Madison’ Is Still Adam Sandler’s Best Movie
Adam sandler best comedy movies
Adam Sandler is Hollywood’s biggest contradiction. Though his comedies range from pretty good (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore) to god-awful (Grown Ups, Jack and Jill), they have amassed more than $3 billion at the box office. The SNL-alum-turned-production-tycoon got rich by repeating himself. See (or don’t) his Netflix hit Murder Mystery — it’s comic laziness incarnate. And then there’s the other Adam Sandler, the actor who makes fools of his detractors. In the annals of the Golden Raspberrys — think the Oscars but for gross cinematic incompetence — only Sly Stallone has more wins than Sandler’s nine. But what about the guy who had critics raving in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love (2002)? Or the performer who went above and beyond the call of duty in James L. Brooks’ Spanglish (2004), Judd Apatow’s Funny People (2009), and especially Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)? Oscar voters pretend … [Read more...] about ‘Uncut Gems’: Adam Sandler’s Wild Ride Should Net the Actor an Oscar

"'Stuber' should not be the same price as 'Avengers,'" says one distribution veteran as cinema chains debate whether to get more creative about what they charge. On its first Tuesday (July 16), the troubled action-comedy Stuber took in a surprisingly strong $1.4 million, up a huge 72 percent from the day before and not all that far behind the $2.2 million it earned Sunday. The secret behind the number wasn't a post-opening marketing blitz waged in hopes of salvaging the R-rated Fox film, but a "discount Tuesday." In thousands of theaters across the country, the cost of a ticket on that day can be a third of the normal price — as low as $6 in New York and Los Angeles, the two most expensive U.S. moviegoing markets, where a ticket now costs upward of $17 or $18 (and that's for a no-frills format). The overall revenue generated Tuesdays is substantial, fueling new momentum behind the argument that cinema chains should get more creative about what they charge, with such approaches … [Read more...] about Amid Box Office Woes, Momentum Grows for Variable Pricing at Movie Theaters
Breaking News Jackie Chan's fighting days are OVER ... at least on camera ... 'cause the legendary actor says he's giving up action movies so he can become "the Asian Robert De Niro." The 58-year-old was promoting his 100th flick, "Chinese Zodiac" earlier today -- when he told reporters, "This will be my last action movie." He explained, "I tell you, I am not young any more ... I am really, really tired." Chan -- who has famously performed his own stunts for decades -- added, "The world is too violent now. It's a dilemma because I like action, but I don't like the violence." He continued, "I don't just want to be an action star ... I want to be a true actor. I want to be an Asian Robert De Niro." "I want to get rid of my image. So, for the last ten years I've done other films like 'The Karate Kid' where I'd rather play an old man. I want the audience to know I'm not just about fighting or comedy, also I can act." Chan has suffered countless injuries on the sets of his movies … [Read more...] about Jackie Chan — I’m QUITTING Action Movies
