Looks fun
BaronZemo - 7/18/2014, 2:16 AM
Not fun but... it looks like something that is called a [frick]ed up film

Peter is in it, Im in!

I didn't know saddler was in this. Great short, but I don't have high hopes for this.
TheGambitFreak - 7/18/2014, 2:20 AM
Wow... This will be the first Adam Sandler movie I will have watched in the last 8 years...

I think this is probably going to end up being Wreck-It Ralph gone wrong.
arkhamknight - 7/18/2014, 2:24 AM
Adam Sandler? yeesh
WhiteSAMURAI - 7/18/2014, 2:26 AM
Anyways, that short reminded me of that one Futurama episode where Fry wondered how life would be if it were more like a video game .

Me and my friend had idea of this kinda of movie when we were kids. Not sure if gonna see it, want to see it because it has Peter Dinklage but also don't want to see it cause Adam Sanndler is in it.

Sandler should just give up. He hasn't been funny since Happy Gilmore.
HBarnill - 7/18/2014, 4:06 AM
Sandler is actually in the process of reinventing his career like McConaughey. He's starring in The Cobbler, which has given him awards notice, and a Jason Reitman film ( Juno, Young Adult). He's a fantastic actor who needs the right direction.

This reminds me of something.
charlie2094 - 7/18/2014, 4:14 AM
Remember seeing the short film a few years back, was pretty cool!

Hope this turns out well! Has potential to be pretty awesome and different if done right
SuperDude001 - 7/18/2014, 4:24 AM
Love the idea of the plot, but Grad and Sandler just make me think this is suck. And if they're playing the video game experts, that is horrible casting. Dinklage I can believe, because he's ace and has great range (and surprising talented in comedy).
Also, this is very reminiscent of that Futurama 'What If' episode. I mean I'm sure to make the short film any legal issues were sorted, but I just swear that on the commentary they actually say one of the writers had proposed the idea as a full [non-Futurama] movie script. Just seems a little bit unoriginal even if not plagiarism.

Reminds me in a strange way of the Fantastic Four.
grif - 7/18/2014, 4:39 AM
you say sandler. i say [frick] you. will never give it a shot
Bread - 7/18/2014, 4:51 AM
This is just gonna be another bullshit adam sandler movie.
DarkGrifter - 7/18/2014, 5:05 AM
heh, great minds and all that jazz :P
mgeoff88 - 7/18/2014, 5:06 AM
The last good Adam Sandler movie was Click. It doesn't even seem like he tries anymore.

@HBarnill Surprisingly, he does have quite a bit of range. He was great in Punch-Drunk Love.
monkeyjoe70 - 7/18/2014, 5:19 AM
the fact that it's directed by Chris Columbus makes me less doubtful of this moviie
MrFrostxxx - 7/18/2014, 6:17 AM
UMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! YEA.... I guess we will have to wait for the next trailer
EhMaybeSays - 7/18/2014, 6:18 AM
Michelle Monaghan? I'm there.
TheRationalNerd - 7/18/2014, 6:36 AM
Sandler is still hilarious, he's just been in crappy films here and there.

-The Longest Yard
-Don't Mess with the Zohan

Were pretty hilarious. lol
fettastic - 7/18/2014, 7:12 AM
DAmn. When I clicked on this I thought it would be like a dramatized King of Kong or something.

This looks epically retarded.
fettastic - 7/18/2014, 7:19 AM
I can only conclude that Peter Dinklage was drugged, hooded, kidnapped and beaten into submission to agree to be in this film.

It's a FACT, not an opinion, a FACT that Adam Sandler has only appeared in films that were previously consumed, digested, then excreted since Reign Over Me.

That shit is documented for all time my friend.
gurugeorge - 7/18/2014, 7:37 AM
hmm, dubious about cool idea for short movie being turned into a whole movie. It's just a cute idea for a short guys, nothing more.
zachman2013 - 7/18/2014, 8:19 AM
Horrid cast. I will pass on this.
Bread - 7/18/2014, 8:25 AM
@MightyZeus I thought the same thing. I'm also getting a bit of a Ghostbusters vibe.
fettastic - 7/18/2014, 8:53 AM
I can't wait for the Ty-D-Bol movie.

A thrilling adventure film in which a man out for a cruise in his boat is sucked up into a waterspout only to awaken inside a giant toilet bowl. Giant turds, gusty farts and tumultuous piss streams nearly scuttle him, so he sets about a chemical experiment to freshen the water. Together with the middle-aged woman who's excrement he must dodge on a daily basis, they mix various chemicals to turn the water a deep, rich blue.....which kills him.

Starring Adam Sandler.
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 7/18/2014, 10:30 AM
Didn't they already do this on Futurama?
macfint - 7/18/2014, 10:44 AM
all I care about is K Kardashian's vagina
SidDaAstroSloth - 7/18/2014, 12:07 PM
I like the concept but i hate Adam Sandler more than i have hated anyone in the universe.

Anybody who helped create Jack & Jill should NEVER be allowed in films again.

Hopefully Adam Sandler doesn't destroy peter's career.. i worry about the career of any actor who has to be in the same movie as that guy
