"Grown Ups 2" is causing a stink in Massachusetts. Adam Sandler has been shooting the sequel to his hit 2010 comedy in the North Shore region of the state, but the crew ran into trouble after building a sound stage in Phillips Park.

Several skunks have moved into a group of trees planted for the film and have been stealing food from the catering tables.

Swampscott local animal control officer Diane Treadwell is in charge of removing the animals. She told the Boston Herald, "They built the set on marshland near a wooded area and the set isn't sealed off so the skunks come in and out as the...

Adam Sandler has parted ways with the assistant who allegedly cost him $1.2 million in luxury car gifts.

The funnyman failed to see the funny side of his sidekick's gaffe when he misunderstood the movie star's request for a matzo party to celebrate the success of last year's Grown Ups.

The Little Nicky star reveals, "I had an assistant... and I told him I was excited, Grown Ups did very well... We should celebrate with the guys, let's throw a matzo party and he said, 'Alright, I'm on it.'

"Then, $1.2 million later, he's like, 'I've got the Maseratis'. I go, 'No, no, no, I didn't say that...

Salma Hayek Defends Her Snake Panic

Salma Hayek
Salma Hayek has defended her on-camera panic during a recent junket interview - explaining she has a morbid fear of snakes.

The actress and co-stars Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph were sitting lakeside for the Extra TV interview to promote new movie Grown Ups when a snake slithered onto the set and started hissing. Hayek and Bello leaped into Rudolph's lap and the Mexican actress was so shaken by the incident she refused to continue the chat.

She says, "The footage is on YouTube.com now... I have a phobia for snakes, but the worst part was... everybody ran and they left us alone. It was h...

'Knight And Day' Had The Worst Opening For A Tom Cruise Movie In 20 Years

June 28th, 2010 8:48am EDT
Knight And Day
The toys and the "Grown Ups" ruled the box office, combining to make $100 million over the weekend.

Adam Sandler's comedy opened with $41 million but failed to steal the top spot from "Toy Story 3," which raked in $59 million in its second week on release.

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz's action comedy Knight and Day opened in third place with a distant and disappointing $20.5 million - the worst opening for a Cruise film in 20 years.

"The Karate Kid" and "The A-Team" round out the new top five.

June 25th, 2010 12:33pm EDT
Grown Ups
This weekend the comedy film Grown Ups premieres starring four of the most currently well known Saturday Night Live alumni: Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider. Kevin James, a beloved comedian from TV land, also stars with them. The film is about five men who were best friends as children and reunite after 30 years to catch up and learn about how they've all become adults. None of these actors are particularly known for being grown ups themselves, so it will be interesting to see how the movie goes. Here's a look at the main actors, specifically the SNL survivors, and w...

Review: Adam Sandler's 'Grown Ups' Is Juvenile

June 24th, 2010 1:49pm EDT
Grown Ups
One of my greatest fears has been confirmed by seeing Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups.” My favorite cast of “Saturday Night Live” from the 90s is starting to lapse into Eddie Murphy syndrome: they have no problem with making crappy family comedies just to cash paychecks.

Watching this poor excuse for something funny made me embarrassed for them. I expected a few lowbrow laughs from these folks who capitalized it after their stint on “SNL.” I hoped perhaps though that these seasoned comedians had something better up their sleeves.

Salma Hayek looked seductive in a busty white dress with red heels when she left her N.Y.C. hotel yesterday to attend the premiere of her film "Grown Ups."

In the film, five former basketball teammates gather 30 years after graduating from high school at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach.

Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend, the five friends realize that just because they've all grown up and started families doesn't mean that they've lost that old spark.

Salma Hayek nearly busted out of her black leather vest after leaving her hotel to head to the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" show in New York City yesterday.

The Mexican actress recently talked about her favorite snacks, which are a little creepy.

She explained, "We eat bugs, Mexicans. Look, I'm salivating. They're delicious. These little ants fried are amazing - with a little guacamole. And the worms... there are many different recipes for those. The little grasshoppers have a smoky flavor to them. It's the way they cook them, and it's really good."

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Grown Ups,' 'Knight and Day,' & More

June 21st, 2010 9:04am EDT
Grown Ups
I saw two films from last week’s line up: “Toy Story 3” and “Jonah Hex.” As expected “Toy Story 3” was absolutely amazing. Pixar continues to surprise me by making entertaining films that are both funny and poignant at the same time. I’m always impressed by their ability to create a story that appeals to people of all ages.

The latest installment in the franchise has Woody, Buzz, and the gang struggling to figure out what to do now that Andy is leaving for college. When they are accidentally donated to a local day care center, the pals plan an escape back to their owner. On the way th...

Salma Hayek Takes Her Married Name On New Film

Salma Hayek Pinault
Who is Salma Hayek Pinault? We know Salma Hayek. Of course, she married Francois-Henri Pinault. Grown-Ups is the first movie where she is credited by her full married name. It was actually her daughter, Valentina, who suggested it.

“Okay, at the beginning of the film, she was very little,” Hayek said. “I was sitting, my chair said Salma Hayek. She said, ‘What does it say there?’ I said, ‘Salma Hayek.’ She goes, ‘Where is Pinault?’ Because her last name is Pinault. In France, my husband is much more famous than me so everybody calls me Madame Pinault. So, she’s used to it.”

Funnyman David Spade was left shocked at the sight of his own butt in new movie "Grown Ups" - and he can't believe girlfriends have been putting up with his less-than-remarkable behind for years.

The former "Saturday Night Live" star agreed to bare his behind in the Adam Sandler comedy - but he was left regretting not calling for a butt double.

Spade tells WENN, "Adam just came to me that one morning and said, 'You're like a guy who's not used to being around families and you're sleeping alone, so you just walk out naked and you don't care.' It's the one day I didn't wear make-up on my bu...

Salma Hayek Snake Freak Out
Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, and Maria Bello were on Extra doing an interview for their new movie Grown Ups when a snake decided to crash the scene. Salma Hayek proceeded to freak out!

While her other co-stars weren't so fearful of the snake, Hayek was literally climbing all over Maya Rudolph to get away from the creature. As she stepped onto Maya's chair in stilettos, she screamed "Somebody do something! No!"

Hayek's over-the-top reaction comes to a surprise to anyone who has seen her in From Dusk Till Dawn, where she was featured in a scene as a stripper using a boa constrictor during her...

Salma Hayek appeared at Christie's Green Auction: A Bid to Save the Earth last week wearing an unusual pair of black and white Balenciaga platform boots. Money certainly doesn't buy taste. Despite the high price tag, we think they're ugly.

Salma stars in the upcoming film "Grown Ups" alongside Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade. In the film, five former basketball teammates gather at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach.
