There is no fun in a funeral. Oh wait, actually there is. But you’re not supposed to have a great time when you’re there, you’re meant to be solemn and…
Get ya nostalgia on.
More like GROAN Ups. Amirite?
The answer is in your wallet…and it’s not a really old condom.
In a film that deals with old friends reuniting, it's fitting that the “Grown Ups” cast have worked with each other in the past. Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade…
Even in a sea of horrible moments, I managed to find a few islands of pure awfulness that somehow stood out. I give you the worst moments from The People’s Choice Awards.
Adam Sandler also took home an award for Best Comedic Star, which would make total sense if the year was 1997. But it’s not, god damn it!
“I hate Adam Sandler movies.”
I used to get pissed off when I’d hear someone say that. First of all, it should be “Sandler’s movies,” not “Sandler movies.” Not that I’m a grammar Nazi, but come on! Second, what‘s not to like?
When pressed, most Sandler haters would reply with something along the lines of “his movies are stupid.” Of course they’re stupid. Most comedies are. But Sandler’s don’t pretend to be anything more. If you want something “intellectual,” go whack off to Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I prefer to laugh.
Toy Story 3 ruled its second weekend at the box office, bringing in $59 million. An estimated 57% of its revenue was from 3D screenings.The film easily crushed its closest competition, Grown Ups ($41 million) and Knight and Day ($27.8 million) thanks in no small part to the fact that Toy Story had a more substantial plot and more realistic, likable characters. Get it? It's ironic because Toy Story is a cartoon about toys!Ugh, never mind. (Empire Online)
Maria Bello is the blonde indie MILF from next door, as she has shown in past matriarchal roles in A History of Violence, Auto Focus, and The Cooler.

She just can't seem to keep those things holstered. A word from Maria: "I like having sex on the stairs."But how will people get to the second level of your home? You should really think these things through first.More enticing pics of Maria after the jump.

Salma Heyek is always a hot babe you can see at the movies whether its art house period drama Frida where she sports a unibrow, or action packed thrill ride Desperado. She can flex her drama and comedic talent with her two other well known assets. She'll be seen next as Adam Sandler's wife in the vacation reunion comedy Grown Ups. Kate Beckinsale in Click and now Salma. Lucky bastard… A word from Salma: "I think it's not a femme fatale when someone is not doing it to manipulate men or be like a black widow. She loves him. She does it out of love. She wants him so badly to stay with her."Who in God's name is running away from you?! He should be dragged through the streets and beaten. And then I will slowly move in as his replacement.More of Salma's finer things after the jump.
In Grown Ups, a group of childhood friends get back together as adults for a 4th of July weekend of misbehaver and fun. Most members of movie reunions are bound together by death, marriage, and the inevitable high school get-together. The films contain performances by then little or unknown actors and give us soundtracks of a generation. Like an old LP record played over and over again, the premises might wear thin over time but still get stuck in our heads. Here are your the top 7 cinematic reunions in honor of Return of Secaucus 7, the film that started it all for seminal reunion flicks.THE BIG CHILL
Rock and Spade watching playback. Last summer, Adam Sandler decided he wanted to take a New England vacation with his buddies and stare at Salma Hayek's cans all day. A film crew tagged along and now we have Grown Ups. The film assumes the very believable premise of five guys who were childhood friends but haven't seen one another since they were twelve years old, so they decide to get to know one another again thirty years later. This isn't very different from the teaser we already saw. They just made more room for pee jokes. The movie opens June 25th and stars SNL's cast circa 1992 with the notable busty additions of Salma and Kevin James. Watch Kevin James make a sissy after the jump.
We're making money right now. Hahahaha! Adam Sandler and the rest of his friends are starring in the movie Grown Ups, adapted from a Dockers commercial. I'm sure a lot will get lost in translation though, like the humor, so we'll have to watch a bunch of formerly hilarious comedians fishing instead of personable model-types. In all honesty though, why the hell wouldn't this group make this movie? They're guaranteed sh*tloads of benjamins, and they get to hang out, laugh, and swing from ropes all day. Sure, Chris Farley is throwing a tantrum in heaven over the sight of Kevin James playing a role clearly intended for him, but I think we all know digitally placing him in the film wouldn't have worked out any better. The ground breaking concept of Grown Ups is about five good friends reuniting for a Fourth of July holiday weekend thirty years after their high school graduation. No, it's not The Big Chill. I know, but no. Check out the teaser trailer after the jump.
