Selena Gomez lost her cool twice on Ellen after costumed monsters snuck up behind her and pounced in the middle of the interview. The first time, Leatherface tiptoed to her chair and blasted a chainsaw behind her and the second time a caped Dracula yelled into her ear. Gomez flipped her lid, cowering in her seat while the audience laughed at the hilarity (way to give NO WARNING audience).
It’s pretty fitting considering one of the starlet’s favourite places IN THE WORLD is this place called Knott’s Scary Farm, where she hesitantly explores the mazes with boyfriend Justin Bieber, half covering her eyes. She’s also starring in a Halloween-appropriate animated movie called Hotel Transylvania with Adam Sandler. The movie is about Count Dracula, who goes into over-protective mode when his daughter (Gomez) meets a boy.
We love that Selena was such a good sport about the whole thing, especially after the second time. That’s pretty much an all time record on the Ellen show! I’d also be mildly scared to go on the Ellen show from now to Halloween because sh*t is going to go down.
1) Justin Bieber’s girlfriend
Sometimes our love for Justin Bieber is misinterpreted as insanity. Don’t make that mistake. Or else.
2) Johnny Depp is bascially a rockstar
There is no end to Johnny Depp’s Johnny Deppness. Just look at him rock out with The Black Keys at the MTV Movie Awards.
3) And then Justin Bieber made us flutter away. Read more…
Andy Samberg recently announced his retirement from SNL (boo) and now he’ll be starring in the upcoming lowbrow comedy “That’s My Boy” with SNL alumni Adam Sandler. Lately Sandler’s films have been disappointing and slightly slapstick but this recut trailer looks halfway decent.
“I haven’t seen the film yet but I took it upon myself to cut a trailer for it anyway,” jokes Samberg in the clip.
This version stars pretty much everyone in history, including Adam Lambert, the prime minister of Israel, Tom Cruise, and Seth Roen, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel and Ben Stiller in a tin of sardines.
It also stars a bunch of people with names spookily similar to Samberg and Sandler, like Shmandy Blanderberg. Will you see it on June 15?
Watch it here:
Selena Gomez plays Mavis in the new animated film Hotel Transylvania. The movie follows Dracula (played by Adam Sandler) who operates a high-end resort, far away from the human world. But the overprotective vampire loses it when a boy discovers the resort and falls for his teenage daughter, Mavis (Selena Gomez).
It’s hard to tell whether animated films — let alone Adam Sandler films — will be funny or not just from the trailer. This particular teaser doesn’t present strong dialogue and we don’t even get a glimpse of what the film is really about.
On the bright side, it shows a lot of spooky and imaginative animation. I’m also routing for it because it has such a strong cast, including Andy Samberg and Steve Buscemi. The film comes out on November 1, strangely AFTER Halloween.
Watch it here:
Today Brittany talks about the Kardashian’s bogus diet pills, Adam Sandler’s newest movie and a cute drumming prodigy.
Poor Adam Sandler recently broke the record for the most Razzi nominations for his horrendous film Jack and Jill. That’s not very good publicity to run on for his new movie That’s My Boy, which also stars Andy Samberg and Leighton Meester.
The film follows a dud father (Sandler) who moves in with his son right before the big wedding and begins sparring with his son and daughter-in-law. You know the usual, too much drinking, too much partying and too much leeching.
First of all, in real life, Sandler would have conceived Samberg when he was 12 if he was his father!!
Some critics are saying it’s a return to his original Happy Gilmore days but I’m still not convinced. I hope for Samberg’s sake it’s a hit. Samberg is a longtime Sandler fan so I understand why he would sign on but I thought he was better than that!
Congratulations goes to Adam Sandler, who has officially broken the record for the most Worst Achievements in Film nominations for the past year. Sandler earned an astounding 11 nominations at the Razzies, which is an Academy Awards spoof of films nobody can stand.
Sandler beat the record previously held by Eddie Murphy with nominations across the board: star, producer and writer. He can credit three movies: Jack and Jill, Just Go with It and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star. It really wasn’t a fair competition was it?
Nominations also went to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
Here is the full list of noms:
BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR

A classic tale of a man seeking love, Zookeeper is the story of Griffin Keyes (Kevin James) on his quest to win back the love of his life, Stephanie (Leslie Bibb) with the help of his talking animal friends over at the Zoo. However, among the twists and turns along the way, Keyes realizes he might be running after the wrong girl and does everything he can to make things right. Keyes even finds a lifelong friend in Bernie the gorilla (voiced by Nick Nolte).
Going in with absolutely no expectations, Zookeeper was actually a quite enjoyable movie. While it is incredibly cheesy noticeably geared towards a younger audience, adults could enjoy it as well and could make for a fun family outing. There were many times when you will laugh, and many times when you will cry – I won’t tell if you don’t!
Personally, my favourite part of the movie was the guessing game you get to play, trying to figure out wich famous celebrity voices what animal. And with a cast like Cher, Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stalone, and Judd Apatow, just to name a few, I can assure you that it was extremely fun!
While it might not be winning an Oscar anytime soon, Zookeeper is not all that bad a movie, and I would definitely recommend it to parents who want to entertain their kids for a couple hours with a wholesome, cute, and enjoyable film. For everyone else, wait until it comes out on Netflix.
Zookeeper is out in theaters everywhere July 8.
TMZ is reporting Charlie Sheen’s new TV show is Anger Management. Does that name sound familiar? It should as it was a 2003 movie starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson.
Charlie will play Jack Nicholson’s character, however there will be some differences. Charlie’s character will be an ex-jock who got his master’s degree in social work during the offseason. He becomes a counselor to defendants in the criminal justice system with anger management problems.
Of course the twist is Charlie’s character will have anger issues of his own. Ya – this sounds like a bomb. The movie was so so, and this concept seems ridiculous and the only reason people will watch is Charlie’s ridiculous behaviour. However that novelty will wear off. Remember Charlie’s standup tour? That was pretty short lived.
Vanilla Ice is on his way back into the limelight whether you like it or not, Perez Hilton reports. The former ‘rapper’ has been cast in an upcoming Adam Sandler comedy entitled I Hate You, Dad! – costarring Andy Samberg and Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester.
The premise of the movie will focus on Sandler, who moves in with his son (Samberg) and future daughter-in-law (Meester), only to immediately start butting heads with her. Ice will surprisingly not be playing himself, but the supporting role of Antonio, a gay wedding coordinator from Long Island. Really?
James Caan is also reported to play Leighton’s actual father. I’m actually quite impressed with this cast, despite Vanilla Ice, so it may be worth checking out.
Sean Anders and John Morris will be directing from a screenplay by David Wain and Ken Marino. Sandler is also producing through his Happy Madison banner along with Jack Giarraputo and Heather Parry. The movie is scheduled for release on June 15, 2012.
Meester most recently starred in “The Roommate,” meanwhile Vanilla Ice was last seen on the big screen in the 2002 teen comedy “The New Guy.” Ice is also playing Captain Hook in an upcoming theatrical production of Peter Pan in England. Looks like someone is focusing on his acting career. God help us all.
I’m not a huge fan of musicians turning into actors. Only the very few can actually make that transition, like Jennifer Hudson or Justin Timberlake, so I don’t think Ice’s role sounds like an Oscar-winner. I’m also not a huge fan of Sandler, so this movie is looking a little meak for me – but could be good. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
The Popular MTV host whose game show helped spark the careers of comedians like Adam Sandler, Colin Quinn and Dennis Leary was found dead in his house on Sunday, MTV.com reports.

Movie star Adam Sandler played Santa Claus to a couple of sick teenagers in his home state of New Hampshire.
Teenpeople.com reports that Sandler brought the two teens, brother and sister who are both suffering from cancer, a new Playstation 3, with games, autographed DVDs, as well as a jersey and a poster from his flick “The Longest Yard.”
Stephanie Hudon, 15, suffers from bone cancer and is expected to go in for surgery on Jan. 8, while her brother, Kevin, has Hodgkin’s lymphoma and has received chemotherapy as treatment for the disease.
Sandler has always been a very giving person, especially during the holiday season. Teen People says Sandler’s giving nature goes all the way back to his childhood. The gifts for the two teens arrived last week.
Adam Sandler’s new comedy, “Click,” took the top spot at the North American box office in its debut, sending “Cars” to second place in its third weekend.
Though the film has gotten mostly bad reviews, it brought in about $40 million US in its first three days, according to Reuters.
“Click” follows Sandler as a father who comes into possession of a magical remote control, allowing him to control his life like a television.
The film’s opening also marked the fourth time since 1999 that a movie starring Sandler debuted with a $40 million-plus take.
Rounding out the weekend’s top five spots were Jack Black’s “Nacho Libre” in third, thriller “Waist Deep” in fourth, and street-racing sequel “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” in fifth.
“Click” begins as a heart-warming, funny tale ? but it quickly develops into the stupidness that envelopes so many Adam Sandler movies before it.
Sandler stars in the film as a workaholic dad trying to come to terms with balancing work and his family in a technological world. He plays Michael Newman in the film, who has a boss he hates (played by David Hasselhoff), and a family with wife Donna (Kate Beckinsale).
After getting told he would not be able to go away with his family for the long weekend in July because he has to finish a project for work, Michael gets frustrated when he tries to turn on the television, only to discover there are too many remotes for him to remember what operates what. He decides to head out in the middle of the night to find a universal remote.
And he does, from a man named Morty (Christopher Walken) at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Morty tells Michael he can have this new universal remote that is not on the market yet, but warns it cannot be returned.
Michael heads home and by the end of the night realizes this new remote does more than just operate the television. He soon discovers he can mute, fast forward, change language settings and revisit his past with just the click of a button.
Soon Michael is fast forwarding through fights with his wife and traffic on his way to work. He also uses the pause button to beat up his boss. But soon the remote takes on a life of its own and fast forwards through almost all of Michael’s life.
The movie starts off promising, even if Beckinsale looks a little too gorgeous to be a mother of two young children (try to name me a mother you know who goes to bed in a tank top that shows of her midriff and short shorts). It seems like it is going to be more of a heart-warming comedy like “The Wedding Singer,” than a movie just in it for stupid laughs (“Happy Gilmore” anyone?).
But it seems the remote Michael receives does more than even he believes, because the film soon turns into a film filled with fart jokes that teenage boys will love, but others will not.
It’s disappointing that the movie takes this turn because by the end when Morty?s true identity is revealed, the audience doesn’t seem to care anymore. And while the film has a typical Hollywood ending, it would have been nicer if it had ended a little darker, much like “The Break Up” did. Especially since it had the ability to do so had the film ended about 15 minutes earlier.
Sandler does a good job in the film, but often turns into a caricature of himself which takes the audience away from the fantasy of the film. Beckinsale performs well as a frustrated wife and mother, and the two kids who play the couple’s kids at the beginning of the film, steal the scenes they’re in.
Walken is excellent as always, however sometimes you can get a hint that the actor found some of the humour just plain stupid.
If you feel like seeing a movie that has a little heart, “Click” is for you. However, if you feel like something with a lot of heart that doesn’t fade away, click on over to “The Break Up.”
Adam Sandler is a father.

On Sandler’s web site, he wrote, “Sandler had a kid!!! Kid is healthy!! Wife is healthy!! He’s still a moron, and that’s all that counts!!!”
Sandler married Jackie in 2003. They met in 1999, when she appeared briefly in his film “Big Daddy.”
