The Little Fella is everywhere, even your local cineplex

I ran across this bit of horrifying "Entertainment" news...

Bestselling author Mitch Albom has sold his very first script to Columbia Pictures and Happy Madison Productions. According to Variety, the untitled film is being set up as a starring project for Adam Sandler.

Braindead meets pompous. Lowest common denominator humor meets lowest common denominator sap. Consider yourselves warned.

This couldn't be any worse than the abomination that was Sandler's "The Longest Yard," could it? Sandler took one of the top 5 sports movies of all time, and...I don't want to think about it.

Not that all Sandler flicks are bad. "Happy Gilmore" was an entertaining movie. But when he gets all sentimental, you end up with sappy crap like "Mr. Deeds," "Little Nicky" and "Big Daddy." Now imagine those films with the heavy-handed sentimentality of the Little Fella. Lord help us all.

Unfortunately, the Sandler/Little Fella combination will probably gross 150 million dollars, which will mean ever more Little Fella scribed feature films.

Just kill me now.
