Pixels⭐️⭐️⭐️½ is a videogame nerd movie gone wild starring Adam Sandler as the friend of President Kevin James. Yes, it’s ludicrous, but Sandler’s typical brand of often immature, bizarre comedy. And because its about videogames, I love it.
It is based on a very short film by Patrick Jean.
The short is great, and probably all anybody needs to see from a critical standpoint. The full length movie is not as good which explains why most critics panned it, but for me this is like the chocolate, whipped cream and cherry you know you shouldn’t eat on ice cream: pure guilty pleasure. I’ll happily rewatch this movie from time to time.
The Sandman’s Revenge Plot
Now, that Uncut Gems⭐️⭐️⭐️½ didn’t win Sandler an Oscar — or even a nomination — he jokingly threatened to unleash a horrible comedy on the critics as revenge:
“If I don’t get it, I’m going to fucking come back and do [a movie] again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay,” he joked. “That’s how I get them.”Adam Sandler Reacted To His Oscar Snub In The Most Adam Sandler Way Possible
Grown Ups 2 was slayed, so maybe Grown Ups 3? Or maybe a sequel to Pixels?
Or perhaps That’s My Boy 2? You almost have to do a sequel if you want something to be really, really bad.
I got it: Jack and Jill 2. That will teach them.
