Given that these days, Adam Sandler movies are generally vehicles by which he can get a paid vacation somewhere fun, where he can hang with his buddies ("Just Go With It," two "Grown Ups" movies), it looks like the actor is ready for some wide open spaces and saddle sores.

It seems Adam Sandler has welcomed a new, young recruit into his stable of regulars, in the fresh-faced and funny Andy Samberg. The duo paired up in last weekend's wickedly unfunny "That's My Boy," and in case you missed it, Samberg recently stopped by the set of "Grown Ups 2" for a cameo. And now they've paired up once again, though you might not recognize them right away.

Weekend Box Office: '80s-Themed Pics 'Rock Of Ages' & 'That's My Boy' Stumble As 'Madagascar 3' Retains The Top Spot

Kids sure do love these CGI ‘toons. “Madagascar 3D: Europe’s Most Wanted” took over the box office for a second straight week, handily defeating holdovers and two new big releases despite falling off a bit heavier than your usual kids’ flick (41.1%). Having grossed $120 million domestically so far, the film is certainly playing up to expectations, currently performing in the vicinity of the previous installment. And it had better -- next week, the Pixar beast looms, with “Brave” taking both the family audience and a number of those 3D screens.

Review: 'That's My Boy' Predictably Juvenile & Surprisingly Far Uglier Than The Usual Adam Sandler Offering

Adam Sandler, comedian, A-List star, and leading man of this Friday’s “That’s My Boy,” is not an idiot. Dedicated to preserving his brand, his films have effectively raised a generation, from the sophomoric absurdity of “Billy Madison” to, uh, the sophomoric banality of “Grown Ups.” You can’t keep playing the same notes forever, and Sandler is not the most diverse instrument, so aside from token experiments (“Punch Drunk Love” certainly stands out), “That’s My Boy” is something of a departure: a hard-R rated film featuring an unfamiliar collaborator in director Sean Anders (“Hot Tub Time Machine”) and a co-star who actually makes Sandler, for the first time ever, come across as an elder.

Yesterday we got Andy Samberg's edit of the "That's My Boy" trailer, but if you're looking for something filthier and with actual footage from the movie, a nice and naughty new red band spot has arrived.

We've long lamented the evolution of Adam Sandler from the guy who made us laugh with stupid-funny stuff like "Billy Madison" and "Happy Gilmore" to the guy who basically gets paid vacations in dreck like "Just Go With It" and "Grown Ups." But every now and then, Sandler will lift his pudgy frame off the couch and actually try. Hopefully, pairing him up with the nimble and constantly improvising Will Ferrell will help him step up his game.

Coming off of 2011 with the dubious distinction of earning a record-breaking 11 Razzie nominations, Adam Sandler just keeps motoring along, and this summer he'll try again to make you laugh by dropping some F-bombs and wearing a mullet in "That's My Boy."

Usually held one day before the Academy Awards, this year the Razzies are changing the game a bit, choosing instead to unveil their nominations this weekend, with the ceremony to take place on April 1st -- that's right, April Fools Day. So who earned the distinction in 2011 of the best at being the worst? Adam Sandler.

As if the idea of a "Candyland" movie wasn't bad enough, along comes Adam Sandler. Continuing their purge of Hasbro-related franchises -- which saw "Stretch Armstrong" go to Relativity yesterday -- Universal has let their deal on "Candyland" expire as well, as Sony Pictures and Sandler's Happy Madison production shingle will now take it on. Good lord.
