I'm sorry Adam Sandler. I truely am. There was a time that you were pretty damn funny. That time is not 2012. Saying things like "Slippity Sloppity Dooby!" in the same stupid voice gets old after 15 years or so.
Put that together with the fact that making board games into movies is a terrible idea to start with. The thought of Candyland on the big screen makes me want to vomit. Here is a quote from the studio suits trying to justify this abomination:
“‘Candy Land’ is more than just a game. It is a brand that children, parents and grandparents know and love,” said Columbia president Doug Belgrad. “The world of ‘Candy Land’ offers an extraordinary canvas upon which to create a fantastical, live-action family adventure film with a larger than life part for Adam. We are thrilled to partner with Hasbro and Happy Madison on this project.”
“The creative talent on board for this movie is amazing and we are excited to bring alive the world of Candy Land for kids and families everywhere,” Hasbro’s Goldner added. “Sony/Columbia has been a wonderful creative partner as we develop another of our games, ‘Risk,’ for the big screen. We are looking forward to working with Sony/Columbia and Adam Sandler and his team at Happy Madison Productions on this film.”
