I’m pretty much immune to the charms of Adam Sandler, but he’s undoubtedly popular, as even his movies that are considered flops generally turn a profit when all is said and done. To my eyes, even the trailer for That’s My Boy is painful to view, but it’ll undoubtedly be a big hit. In the movie Sandler plays an absent father who moves in with his son right before his wedding and soon begins sparring with his daughter-in-law, as well as causing chaos in everyone’s lives. It’s due out in June.
The first images have arrived online for a couple of films that are hoping to be this year’s big comedy hits – This Is 40 and Donny’s Son. The pic above is our first look at This Is 40, Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up spin-off, which focuses on Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann’s married couple, Pete and Debiie. The two children in the image are Maude Apatow and Iris Apatow, Judd’s real-life daughters, who play Pete and Debbie’s two kids in the movie. Not too much is known about the plot, other than it’ll be a coming-of-midlife dramedy. The film is currently set for UK release on December 21st.
Below is the first image from Donny’s Son, previously known as I Hate You, which pairs former Saturday Night Live cast member Adam Sandler with current SNL-er Andy Samberg as a father and son who don’t quite see eye-to-eye. Sandler dad-character moves in with his son right before his wedding and soon begins sparring with his prospective daughter-in-law. It’s due out September 7th.
