A symbolic passing of the SNL-standout-turned-terrible-comedy-star torch, Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg are in talks to play father and son in Columbia Pictures' I Hate You, Dad. The younger A.S. would play a groom-to-be whose father, Sandler, moves in with him on the eve of the wedding. In the script--re-written by the funny and talented David Wain and Ken Marino, if you want to hold out some hope--the close proximity of the would-be bride and the star of Click quickly starts a feud, much to the chagrin of the frustrated son (one would presume from the titular, sure-to-be-retracted, end-of-second-act exclamatory). What a Monster-in-Law!
Those of you who immediately type things into Wikipedia may notice that the Angelina Jolie-in-Alexander-like age difference between the two leads--less than a dozen years--doesn't really make sense unless the film begins with a hilarious comic flashback of an adolescent Sandler being seduced by his nanny (to the accompaniment of "Fat Bottomed Girls," naturally). Well, you're right, but honestly, if that's the biggest logic hole in this film, we should be so lucky. Besides: Adam Sandler will probably wear bifocals and a cardigan! He will have baby powder in his hair! We will never notice his smooth complexion through our tears of laughter! OK?
