Sony Pictures had their computer system hacked, or just leaked a bunch of shit because they’re pussies and it’s easier than making an awkward phone call. Of the documents released to date, the overriding theme is everybody who works there is wondering how the fuck Adam Sandler is still churning out movies. I was going to ask them the same question. The company in charge of green lighting Sandler’s latest fart ridden Taco Bell product placement disguised as comedy apparently find them just as unwatchable as the rest of us:
“There is a general “blah-ness” to the films we produce. Althought we manage to produce an innovative film once in awhile, Social Network, Moneyball, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, we continue to be saddled with the mundane, formulaic Adam Sandler films.”
So you’ve pinpointed the problem. Step two is to act on it. The fact is Sandler’s films make money. Its time for Sony to figure out how they want to define themselves. Vivid Video makes money, but if they produce a World War II epic I won’t be seeing it. Maybe after twelve horrendous movies in a row its time to pull the plug. Not that I watch Sandler’s movies anymore, but when they’re showing on the airplane I freak out and up lever down lever the emergency hatch at 30,00 feet.
