I’m certain that this George C Scott mash-up from the actor’s 1979 film Hardcore is going to become the new norm for evaluating today’s movie trailers:

…”And one day, when you step in this pile of goop that you thought was a good movie…then…you’ll know what to do…”
Adam Sandler? Pass.
See, I know what to do.
It’s too too too BAD that Sandler didn’t shoot this in 3-D
He’s gonna make a ton of money.
I actually felt worse than George C.
Agreed, I felt worse then George as well. This movie looks so bad. So unfunny. Adam Sandler is not funny anymore and hasn’t been in years. Pretty much since he left Bob Simonds and teamed up with knucklehead Jack G. The same cast of lame ass friends are in the movie. To top it off Sandler does his awful accent as the ugly sister and we all remember Little Nicky. Can Amy ever say no to Sandler or his idiot agent Venit?
Yet it will make money because American’s are idiots.
My name says it all….as does your post!
I thought the Adam Sandler movie was a spoof trailer for a bad movie!
Wow i feel worse than George now.
WHO THE F..ck gives Adam Sandler money to make movies what a pathetic joke….and was that katie Holmes…f..ck me running…will someone please stop this non-sense…are you hearing me STUDIOS…you greedy jerks!
People who want to make even more money give him their money. It’s tragically simple. I’m not sure I see the studios turning into non-profit organizations any time soon, but that’s just me.
Sony does and has for ages financed Adam Sandler’s movies! And because decision-making people at that studio have no brains either the films they produce are pretty brainless. Logic, no?
That’s what Amy and Michael said when they received the first and last cut.
What’s super depressing is that these aren’t people that NEED to pander for the paycheck. Sandler and co. probably have more creative capital than anyone in comedy and this is what they CHOOSE to produce.
Or maybe it isn’t depressing. Maybe we’re witnessing very fortunate people making their passion project every time out of the gate.
I’m still depressed. And would jump at the chance to write J&J for scale.
Exactly. I know that ‘Funny People’ caught a lot of flack from people on here, but you could tell that Sandler and Apatow at least cared about it.
Something like this just screams cash grab, and yet the lowest common denominator will defend it as they line up to buy tickets.
Just when i think Adam Sandler’s movies can’t any dumber, he goes and does something like this…and TOTALLY REDEEMS HIMSELF!!!
George got through more of the Sandler trailer than I did. What a steaming pile of shit!
I think after this film’s realease, the term “steaming pile of shit” will be replaced by “Jack and Jill”, as in “Have you seen that new Kate Hudson movie? It’s a total Jack and Jill!”
I thought the word for that was ‘Norbit’?
The HARDCORE mashup will be the new bad-news-for-Hitler reel. Every shit movie trailer’s going to have GCS cut into it. And it will just keep getting better and better.
Nick Cage from 8MM could also be really good.
Even funnier would be Nick Cage from 8MM mashed up to a preview of whatever horrid Nick Cage movie comes out next.
Like he’s being shown a glimpse of his own terrible future because I’m sure his response to the film in 8MM would be the same exact response 1990′s Nick Cage would have seeing the preview to the Wicker Man or Season of the Witch.
Man, the mash up with to Bees scene in WM alone would be gold.
Excellent idea! Please post it asap.
I wonder why his kid in the movie is from Pakistan?
I’ve got to hand it to Amy and Michael. They keep churning this stuff out and somehow they keep getting a pass…which is a bigger mystery than Adam’s career.
one of the worst scripts I have ever read.
Such a sadness that these scripts even get read or taken seriously. Scripts like this and other recent huge spec sales read like the writer(s) came up with an idea and just churned it out over one weekend coke binge.
hilarious comment. That trailer is truly a stinking pile of human waste. The worst sort of anal expelled debris just laden with bacteria and parasitic gunk.
In all seriousness, I usually watch the trailers for Adam Sandler movies (Just Go With It, Grown-ups, etc) and, while I’m cringing, I can at least respect them as broad, commercial trailers. Especially seeing them in theaters where they consistently play huge with the audience. However, this one is a real turkey — there isn’t a single broad laugh in the entire trailer.
The “whispering with a bullhorn” line made me laugh, because that had a ring of truth to it.
My coworker saw only my face as I watched the trailer, he said it looked like I was watching someone get murdered.
I did. It was the death of Cinema. Love this!
Really? thats a real Adam Sandler Movie?…oh thats bad, is that from the writers of Big Mamas house 2
HAS ANYONE NOTICED THE LIONSGATE STOCK PRICE RIGHT NOW IS $6.66?
What’s even funnier is that katie holmes chose nonsense like this over the recent batman sequels.
This is going to bomb…. and that’s coming from a fan of many adam sandler movies
Yeah, because Katie Holmes had a choice on skipping The Dark Knight.
More horrifying – that was f-ing Al Pacino.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Will Sandler be the first to get a Razzie Nomination for both “Worst Actor” AND “Worst Actress”? His movies are all terrible sell-out crap now. Who are the people that watch this stuff?
The people that watch this type of explosive diarrhea on film are desperate, weak, frightened, and truly empty of soul just trying to kill a couple of hours in order to forget that they too are going to die one day. So they are willing to shovel huge amounts of cash into the likes of an Adam sandler while forcing themselves to laugh at the hideously lame jokes and pretending that they “get it” and are “in” on the joke.
I really hope the “Jack & Jill” trailer becomes a new meme for mash-ups. Can someone please mash it with some of the reaction videos from the 2 Girls 1 Cup video?
Hilarious idea. Also with Ryan O’Neal’s “worst line reading ever” — Oh God, Oh Man!
This looks like one big pile of stinkin’ poo. Somebody slap Adam Sandler silly PLEASE! What a disaster. UGH.
This mash up would be brilliant if it weren’t for one fatal flaw:
It forces you to watch the Jack & Jill trailer again.
Jack & Jill is a major gag-fest… and not in a good way. I wish Adam Sandler would stop making movies for the next decade or so.
