Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies 7/26 - 8/1

August 3rd, 2009 11:08am EDT
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
Over the weekend, I caught Judd Apatow's new film "Funny People" starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen. "Funny People" lived up to my expectations; it's funny at points with an appropriate seriousness that's present throughout the movie.

I was surprised by how unlikable Sandler's character is at points, revealing that his problems in life a...
