We are all guilty of enjoying Adam Sandler's movies, and there's no shame in that. Sandler's latest film debuts this weekend, so most of you will go see this film out of habit or because of your undying loyalty for the prolific funny man. Sunday, I was having this strange conversation with James Hudson, also known as TucsonScene James, and I mentioned that Sandler seems like he's planning his next film around his next ideal vacation spot.
Obviously, I'm not the only one that shared this sentiment. Hudson sent me this verbose article The A.V. Club published about Sander's remarks on Jimmy Kimmel's talk show last night.
“Yes,” Sandler replied enthusiastically, secure in the knowledge that it absolutely doesn’t matter if he just admits, point blank, that he chooses his projects based on whether they include a trip to some luxury destination, because they are Adam Sandler movies for Adam Sandler audiences. “I have done that since 50 First Dates,” Sandler explained. “It was written in another place. I said, ‘Imagine if we did it in Hawaii, how great that movie would be.’ And they said, ‘Yeah, that’s a very artistic idea.’ I’ve been doing that ever since.”
I can't blame the guy. Hell, I envy the son of a gun. If I ever met the Water Boy, I'm going to give him a wicked awesome high five. Hopefully, he'll find it in his heart to film a movie in the Old Pueblo to spend more time with his family members that live here.
