Adam Sandler’s latest film, , marks yet another reunion (nearly paralleling the story itself) with SNL veterans David Spade, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, and Rob Schneider. Oh, and for some reason, Salma Hayek signed up for this gig, too.

In the movie, Sandler meets up with his high school friends (Spade, Rock, Schneider, and Kevin James) during a July 4th weekend, where they discover some interesting things about their families (Schneider is married to an extreme cougar, James’s four year-old kid is still breast-fed). The comedy opens in theaters on July 25, 2010.

Role Models

Seth Rogen and James Franco made a huge splash with , Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are bona fide box office gold and now Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd are joining the fray with a comedy of their own. There’s something magical about a non-romantic funny duo…or at least, they can be money-making magic for the film studios. But out of all these pairs we’ve seen grace the screen, which twosome stands out most?

My Advice for Waitress’ Keri Russell

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Comedy, Casting, Celeb News,

Ms. Russell:

Keri RussellI just recently watched the DVD of release of - you know, the movie you’ve been receiving all the acclaim and buzz for.  Let me first start off by saying that I thought you did an amazing job.  I was really happy to see you solidify your comeback since your heydey on Felicity.  (I’ll even forget that your critically panned exists.)

So now that I’ve gotten the compliments out of the way, I must now move on to the purpose of my note.  I read a very disturbing piece of news the other day and I’m hoping you will dispute the rumors. 

Please tell me it’s not true.  Please tell me you will not be starring in a comedy with .

Granted, (Hairspray) is slated to helm .  I understand the appeal.  But I’m begging you—don’t make an about face and go backwards with your career. 

If this film were on the dramatic end of the Sandler spectrum (like Reign Over Me, Spanglish or Punch-Drunk Love), you might have my support.  But playing the romantic interest in any Sandler comedy hasn’t really helped anyone.  Don’t align yourself with the of the world.  You’re better than that.  And how about ?  How did Click benefit her?  And does anyone remember role in Mr. Deeds?

You’ve already proven your comedic chops with your stint on .  Now it’s time to take advantage of the awards season hoopla.  Don’t tempt fate now by coming anywhere near a possible appearance.  Please.
