For those who saw Judd Apatow’s Funny People as a kind of Adam Sandler apology vehicle – you know, “sorry about all the shitty work I’ve made you pay to see these past ten years or so, maybe I’ll do better” – his latest project, titled Ridiculous 6, appears to be shoving just how wrong you were right in your stupid face.
Not surprising, since Sandler followed Funny People with a string of movies that are best described as “the worst motion pictures in the history of the medium” (Grown Ups, Just Go With It, Jack & Jill).
Ridiculous 6, which has been billed as a comedy western, is still in the early stages, so there’s nothing much to report except for the title, the setting, that Adam Sandler is in it, and the fact that it will probably be very, very bad.
The title seems to be a spoof on that of The Magnificent Seven, but with, you know, six gunfighters instead of seven. No points for guessing that this presumably bumbling team of characters will include both Chris Rock (as the black guy) and Rob Schneider (as, uh, that other guy). Yay.
So, what do you make of this? Are you looking forward to a Sandler-based western spoof? Would you find it more fun to take Adam Sandler’s DVDs out into the yard, line them up on the fence, and shoot at them with a revolver?
Let us know in the comments section, folks.
