Sandler comedy takes to stage
Houston Chronicle, United States - Are you ready for the '80s? No, I haven't misplaced my calendar. They're back, courtesy of The Wedding Singer.

The 2006 musical version of the 1998 Adam Sandler film comedy makes its Houston premiere Tuesday at Hobby Center, in the national tour presented by Broadway Across America-Houston.

Set in Ridgefield, N.J., circa 1985, the show centers on Robbie Hart, "New Jersey's leading wedding singer" and a big believer in love and marriage — until his fiancee dumps him at the altar. Robbie starts sabotaging wedding gigs with anti-love ditties and literally winds up not just in the dumps, but in a Dumpster.

Travolta Shimmies in Drag; Sandler's `Gay' Wedding: Rick Warner
Bloomberg - USA - John Travolta, who gave us the white-suited disco pose in ``Saturday Night Fever'' and the two- finger peekaboo in ``Pulp Fiction,'' contributes another signature dance move in ``Hairspray.''

As Edna, the corpulent mother of early 1960s Baltimore teenager Tracy Turnblad, Travolta performs an unforgettable shimmy at the end of this joyous remake of John Waters's story about dancing, adolescence and racial tolerance.

Packed in a skin-tight red dress covered with gold spangles, Travolta slaps his side a la Tina Turner and self- mockingly revives the two-finger swipe across his face to the pulsating sound of Marc Shaiman's ``You Can't Stop the Beat.''

Adam Sandler's Co. Buys Mitch Albom Baseball Pitch
Cinematical - Santa Monica, CA, USA - Columnist turned author Mitch Albom is about to add another title to his resumé: that of screenwriter. (OK, he adapted a few of his books for television but I'm talking about screenwriting) According to Variety, Adam Sandler's Happy Madison shingle has bought a baseball-related pitch from the author ... and yes, the project is being set up by Sony as a vehicle for Mr. Sandler. Because he hasn't done enough sports comedies yet. (Nothing against Sandler, but he hasn't made a funny movie since The Wedding Singer, if it's me you're asking.)

Described as a "comedy with emotional elements set in

While Sandler tiptoed into the sentimental realm with this spring's box office disappointment "Reign Over Me,"
