While most awards shows happening this time of year take themselves so seriously it’s ridiculous, the Razzies (or, by their proper name, the Golden Raspberry Awards) are, by nature, a lot less uptight. No one really pays attention to them, though, so maybe it all evens out in the end.
Every year the Razzies have fun kicking the dead horses of all the worst entertainment from the past year. And there were a few of the Chosen who made the shortlist for their terrible work.
Adam Sandler is one of the big “winners” in the Razzie nominations for his role in “Grown Ups 2,” which, by all accounts, was a big ole dud. “Grown Ups 2″ was so bad, in fact, that it also garnered a nomination for Worst Picture. See if you can even make it through the trailer.
And the nominations for Sandler’s buddy comedy didn’t end there. The movie was also nominated for Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, as well as Worst Screen Combo. The combo in question is, hilariously, “the entire cast.” It must be even worse than previously imagined.
Can Adam Sandler stop making movies like this one and “That’s My Boy?” Adam Sandler is funny and smart and made really amazing comedic movies like “Happy Gilmore” and “Billy Madison.” We’d even take “The Waterboy” over the stuff he’s been making the last few years.
