George C. Scott Hates Adam Sandler Movies

And frankly, I don’t blame him.

That was about my reaction. The horror…the horror.

Big huge props to Nerdist family member Paul Bonanno (@paulbonanno) for creating this hilarious video.

    It’s was funny ,at first I thought what the heck? Then I remembered that was taken from a G.C.S. movie called “hardcore” , he was looking for his missing daughter who somehow got into porn, and that was his reaction to him seeing a movie she made

  2. My brother suggested I would possibly like this website. He was once totally right. This put up actually made my day. You can not believe just how so much time I had spent for this info! Thank you!

    anncoultersadamsapple, I left out a very important word in the post I just left a few minutes ago. It should read ” I couldn’t agree with you MORE.’

  4. Mike says:

    anncoultersadamsapple, I couldn’t agree with you
    regarding Sandler’s cynicism and disdain, deliberate or otherwise for his “fans” by continually giving them his “cool dude” bulls&/t”and hoping they’ll buy it yet again. I was hoping that age would make him, if nothing else, too embarassed to keep playing the equivalent of a 13 year old, but age has just made him more desparate to hold on to that pathetic shtick cause that’s all he knows. Its one thing to have a 20 year old actor playing these roles, but a 45 year old? Its cringe worthy. And thanks for the Louis C.K. comparison, totally on point.
    He doesn’t have to tell you or show you he’s cool, its inate, not forced; cause that would be totally uncool, and totally unfunny,right Sandler?

    I’ll admit that film among his others looks dreadful. However I still believe that Billy Madison was hilarious and still one of the most quotable movies to date(at least in my circle of friends) I admit he should just stick to comedy albums. Better yet producing movies for awesome comedians with better ideas for movies.

  6. TomO says:

    Yeah George C Scott died in 99. Had he been alive, I am not sure his reaction would have been any different.

  7. anncoultersadamsapple says:


    Sandler knows what he’s doing. He’s making lowbrow, middle of the road comedy because he wants to make a lot of money from people even he thinks are stupid. He draws away attention from the droves of comedians pouring their hearts into what they do without getting even a fraction of the attention Sandler receives.

    For that reason it’s important that people criticize comedians like Sandler and not support their movies. All in the hopes that one day we live in a country where Louis C.K. is god and Sandler has to actually try.

    Oh and Kyle thanks for posting this.

  8. agirlyman says:

    whoa that was disturbingly not funny, what’s sad is some people will actually love this movie, they should all be tarred, and feathered.

  9. Kyle Anderson says:


    Because I’m a critic. Sort of in the job description.

  10. …and apparently I cannot spell today, either.

  11. Good lord. OK, people. There are 2 givens in this world. Don’t ever make Pasta Salad when on Top Chef when up for elimination and don’t ever play a female version of yourself in a ciomedy. It hasn’t been done well since Tootsie. (Yes, Mrs. Doubtfire may not have exactly “sucked” but it owes everything to Tootsie, Milton Berle and Flip Wilson. Martin Lawrence isn’t funny nor is Eddie Murphy. It’s all dick & fart jokes, anyway. )

    Anyway, I am surprised that they didn’t get Kevin James to do this. Then again, that’s probably because he has a hard time eveing playing a real man in his movies, let alone an untalented and unfunny man in drag.

  12. RobR says:

    Ah, mattshow, the Google is weak in you! 🙂 It seems to be “Hardcore” from 1979: George C Scott is watching a porn video staring his missing daughter. (spoiler alert?) I haven’t seen it, but it looks interesting.

  13. alisa says:

    For all the love that is wholly and pure, please, please, please tell me this is a fake movie. What what hell was Adam Sandler thinking???????!!

  14. mattshow says:

    Maybe everyone knows this but me, but where’s the George C Scott clip from?

  15. Legos says:

    What have you achieved in your life Kyle that gives you the right to criticize everyone’s work?

  16. Jeremy Baker says:

    The people who want to see that movie should have their right to vote taken away.

  17. Fs says:

    That can’t be real. Really? What happened to Adam sandler?

  18. JD says:

    Good video but it made me bawwww like a motherfucker.

    What has happened to Adam Sandler and Al Pacino? I used to like their movies..

  19. PrncssBttrcp says:

    I also had to IMDB this, because I just couldn’t imagine a world with this actually in it. This is why we can’t have nice things.

  20. Bahamut says:

    Man, that was my exact reaction to the Zookeeper trailer, only the part that made me cry was the audience in the theater actually laughing. My brother added the finishing blow by turning to me and saying “see, people love it”

  21. Edo says:

    Why are we surprised about this load of s%$t from Sandler? I’m more worried about what the hell Pacino is doing in this movie!

  22. jay says:

    that adam sandler movie is not funny at all. now if sandler were in a dress AND a fat suit, that would be hilarious.

  23. The Ragi says:

    Peter Boyle couldn’t even wait for the trailer to be over.

  24. Anyer says:

    I think I just died a little. No in fact I just died a lot. Who in their right minds thinks something like THAT is funny?

    Poor George C. Scott, I would have been the same. It’d have to be paid a LOT of money to make me go see that movie.

    And I see you lurking at the back there Peter Boyle…

  25. Jforjenius says:

    My frontal lobe just jumped out of my skull and bitch slapped me.

  26. @sybarite_ says:

    I’m at a loss for words to describe just how terrible this movie looks. First of all, “from the producers of Grown Ups and Just Go With It…” that’s actually nothing to brag about; it’s something to be ashamed of. Those movies have scores of 10% and 18% on Rotten Tomatoes, respectively.
    Can we look forward to an Eddie Murphy/Adam Sandler multirole shitstorm coming to multiplexes next summer? There must be some demographic of morons out there who would like to see a Caligula level orgy scene involving those two in various roles getting it on.

  27. Graham Trudeau says:

    Oh boy, i thought the movie in the trailer was a clip-smash-parody trailer, designed to show how awful and cookie cutter adam sandler movies are…… then i looked at adam sandler’s imdb…………

    May raptor jesus save us all.

  28. Spider_Dude says:

    G.C.S. punched himself in the face after this, right? i mean would pay to see this anyway.
