The cast of “The Meyerowitz Stories” weighed in on the ongoing Netflix-Cannes controversy — a small facet of the larger friction between traditional studios and streaming services — in an interview with Variety at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday. Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler, who play half-brothers navigating the dysfunction of their family in the film, said if the studios... Read more »
The Netflix logo still drew scattered boos when it appeared at the beginning of the Cannes Film Festival screening of Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” on Sunday morning at the Grand Theatre Lumiere, but this time there were no technical snafus, no rhythmic clapping, no halted screening so that the aspect ratio could be fixed.
Unlike the chaos that accompanied the first Netflix movie to screen at Cannes, “Okja” on Thursday, the first press screening of “The Meyerowitz Stories” on Sunday was uneventful — that is, unless you could the Cannes debut of Baumbach after 10 films and
Emma Thompson proved she has such a great sense of humor during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival this weekend.
The 58-year-old actress got super silly with her co-stars Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, and Adam Sandler during a photo call for their new film The Meyerowitz Stories on Sunday (May 21) in Cannes, France.
Not only did she make a bunch of funny faces, but at one point, she squatted down behind a podium as the guys laughed and took photos.
The day before, Emma was spotted touching down at the airport before going for a a swim at the Eden Roc Hotel.
The film tells the story of two fathers — played by Rock and Sandler — whose kids are getting married to each other.

Adam Sandler and his production company, Happy Madison Productions, and Allen Covert will serve as executive producers.
In what must be a Netflix executive’s dream-come-true, Deadline reports that Chris Rock is set to co-star in Adam Sandler’s next exclusive for the streaming service The Week Of. In the script, co-written by Sandler, The Longest Yard actors play fathers and soon-to-be-in laws preparing for the wedding of Sandler’s
Jack Nicholson has had a long career playing brooding rebels, crazed villains and sneering charmers on screen.
“Man Trouble” is a ridiculous screwball crime comedy in which Nicholson and Ellen Barkin get upstaged by horny dogs.
Nicholson and Morgan Freeman are purely saccharine in this cornball comedy about two cancer patients trying to live out their dying wishes.
Nicholson’s first ever movie was a sensationalized B-movie about how new music is making kids run wild on killing sprees.
Nicholson has only a minor role in this lavish, fantastical film from Vincente Minnelli starring Barbra Streisand, and he looks wildly out of place.
Adam Sandler plays
Funny People, Judd Apatow’s 2009 dramedy about funny people, opens with a home video Apatow shot in the early ’90s of his roommate Adam Sandler doing a silly voice while his comedian friends — Ben Stiller and Janeane Garofalo — die laughing around him. I absolutely love this clip, both
If you love a good Adam Sandler movie then you’re not alone. In fact, Netflix viewers are apparently MAJOR Sandler fans and have watched his movies for more than 500 million hours.
This sounds like a crazy number of hours, but the actor does have a lot of movies to choose from. Surprisingly, Sandler’s bigger hits like, Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, aren’t currently on Netflix, but his other films are getting a LOT of views.
According to Netflix’s Q1 earnings report via Time, Sandler’s movies have been one of the top-viewed actor’s works on the streaming site.
Ever since the release of
