A movie within a movie. Clever. FunnyorDie has just released a new clip from Judd Apatow‘s upcoming comedy Funny People starring Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, and Leslie Mann. In the film, Sandler plays commedian George Simmons, whose job has resulted in mindless, slap-stick comedy, and who has just been diagnosed with cancer. Aside from the canecr part, this is definitely something Sandler can relate to.
The clip from Re-Do, starring Sandler’s character in the film Simmons and Justin Long, is not unlike some of the recent trailers that we’ve seen Sandler in. I don’t think You Don’t Mess with the Zohan had any more of a beliavable premise than Re-Do.
Check out the trailer for Redo and the clip from Funny People below…
Craig, a workaholic lawyer, never made time for his relationships. Alone and depressed on his 40th birthday, he wonders about the life he could have lead. But be careful what you wish for…you might just find yourself in diapers! When a wizard gives Craig a second chance at his youth, he discovers that sometimes it takes becoming a baby to learn how to be a man.
I think this film is not only George Simmons way back to being on stop, but also Adam Sandlers. Recently, he’s made some not-so-great films, but we all know he has both the acting and the comedy chops to bring it back.
What do you think of the spoof trailer? Is it that different from some of the other comedies you’ve seen?
