I Hate You Dad


Scientists have heatedly argued as to whether Adam Sandler‘s career is still in existence or went extinct after Jack and Jill stepped on the last egg. Since then, millions have headed into the wild to see if they could spot some sort of proof that the comedian is still allowed on film sets. Or still inviting himself onto the the ones he’s financing. Luck struck Cinema Blend today when they acquired the highly sought-after evidence that Sandler is still, in fact, working. There’s no explanation as to why Sandler is wearing a Bon Jovi costume here, but it beats a fat suit any day. Hopefully, Donny’s Boy (retitled from I Hate You, Dad) will be the home run that knocks the old big leaguer out of his slump. He’s got Andy Samberg co-starring in a role that almost ensures a ton of comedic sparring between the two, and Leighton Meester on board as Samberg’s character’s fiancee who does not get along with dear old dad. Sitcom set up, possible gold. Why? Because the script was rewritten by The State alumnae Ken Marino and David Wain who also delivered Wet Hot American Summer. It’s the feature directing debut of third film directed by Sean Anders and John Morris, who used their Sex Drive writing cred to get work on Mr. Popper’s Penguins and Hot Tub Time Machine. The hope/dread factor is still up in the air, but scientists need something to argue about. Correction: In a previous version of the article, […]

If you’ve been keeping track of Adam Sandler’s career (and in 2011, who hasn’t?), then you have probably already heard that he’s going to be playing Andy Samberg’s dad in the upcoming film I Hate You, Dad. This is an interesting proposition because Samberg is a young comedian who has utilized digital media to skyrocket his career into the stratosphere and Sandler is an aging funnyman who hasn’t done anything good in over a decade, yet still keeps making billions of dollars on name value alone. What will happen when the irresistible force meets the immovable object, funny or no funny?



I believe firmly that movie reviewers and critics should have their work cut out for them. All they do all day is watch movies, eat cookies and raw goat meat, and drink expensive beers you’ve never heard of before sitting down to their computer to pass judgment upon the latest feature film thousands of people poured their lives into. Thus, the least reviewers could do is make up their own puns. Sadly, Adam Sandler is making it too easy. According to The Hollywood Reported, Sandler will co-star with Andy Samberg for I Hate You Dad. The movie features a father who starts crashing at his son’s house shortly before the son is set to be married. The dad then starts fighting with the fiancee. Hilarity hopefully ensues, and I’ll let you guess who’s playing which role. Oddly enough, this could be a chance for Samberg (a guy most known for jizzing in his pants) to reach a wider audience that doesn’t know that he won a silver medal in the Space Olympics. On the other hand, it could also attempt to be a little edgy and actually,  I don’t know, be funny for the first time in Sandler’s career since 1999. Sidenote: If Adam Sandler were actually Andy Samberg’s father, he would have sired him at age 12. Movie magic!
