If you have seen the Mr. Plinkett reviews of movies, these are the same folks. However, when it came to reviewing Jack and Jill awhile back, they decided not to simply review the movie, but analyze Sandler as a film maker.
Their analysis is centered around how a movie like Jack and Jill can cost $79 million, but look like it was filmed over the weekend in someone’s garage.
Their conclusion is that Sandler is basically pre-sold so many aspects of the movie out(advertising and so forth) that the film barely needs to break even to make any money.
By the way, $79 million is a lot more than many other films and according to the reviewers, you do not see the money on screen. One of their points is that Michael Bay makes crap movies that cost a ton, but they *look *like they cost a ton.
Here is the video review this thread is about. The second half of the review contains almost all the core stuff. Mildly entertaining overall, but if you want to skip the first half, I think you can and still get the idea.
What do you think about their analysis? How did Click cost over $82 million? How did Jack and Jill cost $79 million? How did Don’t Mess with the Zohan cost…$90 million?
If you post “Adam Sandler movies are stupid and you are not the target audience”, you did not understand the point of the thread.
