We've known, for a while, that Adam Sandler likes to keep his movies simple, with a pretty relaxed atmosphere. Most of the time, his on-screen wardrobe seems to consist of whatever was on sale at Old Navy that week (in XXL size, no less) and he only works with a handful of directors, time and time again. But his emphasis on simplicity is now approaching toxic levels of laziness, especially with his rather critically despised new movie "Blended." The movie is set in South Africa and features a number of ghastly stereotypes and insensitive jokes. And while chatting with Jimmy Kimmel (via Ropes of Silicon), Sandler freely admitted that his movies have become an excuse for him to go on vacation. Hence "Blended's" exotic settting. Hey, at least he's honest.
"Yes," Sandler explained to Kimmel in the clip. "Since '50 First Dates,' when it was written in another place and I said, 'Imagine if we did it in Hawaii, how great that would be?' And they said, 'That's a very artistic idea.' And I said, 'Yes.' I've been doing that ever since."
Then Sandler told a kind of insensitive story about trying to order grilled cheese from the African hotel's room service, although it was probably funnier than anything in the actual movie.
