We spotted Adam Sandler swimming with his children Sadie and Sunny in Miami yesterday. The actor looked a little overweight while he was enjoying the pool with his family.

The actor is reportedly eyeing a role in the upcoming comedy "Fat Man" so maybe that's why he's packing on the pounds?

Hopefully the film will put him back on top of the box office. In February he set a record and was dishonored with 11 "Razzie" nominations, which are given to the worst movies of the year. His film "Jack and Jill" was a bust.

He stars in several upcoming films, including "That's My Boy," "Hotel Transy...

Two Jews' Review 'Jack And Jill' And Agree Adam Sandler Fell Down The Hill With This One (Video)

Jack And Jill
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: I love laughing. Nothing feels as good as a big fat belly laugh... Well, maybe one other thing, but laughing is definitely right up there. So I was really looking forward to seeing Adam Sandler's new film 'Jack and Jill,' directed by Dennis Dugan (Grownups). It's a comedy, right? Wrong!

There is absolutely nothing funny about this movie. This is a really bad film that totally condescends to its audience.

Good comedy has to have a basis in reality. The characters have to be believable. They can be over-the-top, but they have to be real pe...

Katie Holmes & Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler and Katie Holmes dropped by the "Rachael Ray" show to promote their new film "Jack And Jill."

In the film, Jack Sadelstein (Sandler) is on top of his game, and has every reason to be thankful: he has a beautiful wife (Holmes), great kids, a gorgeous house in L.A., and a successful job as an advertising executive. Even still, Jack always dreads the coming of Thanksgiving because for him, the holiday only means one thing: a visit from his needy, annoying, passive-aggressive, neurotic, identical twin sister, Jill (also played by Sandler.)

The stars sat down with Rachael and talk...

Funnyman Adam Sandler learned how powerful he is in Hollywood when his comical complaints about a palm tree blocking a poster for his new film prompted studio bosses to chop it down.

The Happy Gilmore star was driving through the city when he spotted the tree partly obscuring a billboard advertising Jack & Jill, which features Sandler in character as male and female twins.

He explains, "There was a palm tree with the leaves going across on the girl character and it looked like a mustache and it was right near Sony (studio's headquarters).

"I told them... they had a mustache on me with a ...
