Here's another viral video from the highly-anticipated Judd Apatow movie "Funny People", starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen. Judd has been 2 for 2 when it comes to writing and directing box office hits. With "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up" both being commercial and critical smash hits. He's proved even more successful in the producing chair, bringing us countless other films like "Superbad", "Anchorman", "Step Brothers" and many others.
So what's different about "Funny People"? Apatow made house hold names out of Steve Carrell in "Virgin" and Seth Rogen in "Knocked Up". But before the success of those films, both actors were relatively unknown outside of television, Carell with the "Daily Show" and Rogen with "Undeclared". But in "Funny People" we have an already established, truly mega STAR in Sandler. So I can only imagine how big this movie is going to be with several other well-knowns rounding out the cast.
Here's a clip where we see Sandler's character George Simmons, who is a well known comedic actor(sound familiar?) in one of his movies. This is totally making fun of all of those "wish I were young/or old" movies that Hollywood churns out every three or four years, the latest being "17 Again".
This fake movie clip comes complete with a fake movie synopsis! Enjoy.
George Simmons in "Re-Do"
