We’ll be hearing arguments over which film really deserved the Best Picture Oscar for months, if not years, to come, but if the Razzie results are any indication there’s a firm consensus on which movie was the worst of 2012.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II swept this year’s proceedings, as seven out of their record-tying eleven nominations turned into wins. Keep in mind that that’s eleven nominations out of ten categories — that’s how bad Razzie voters thought this thing was. That’s My Boy and Battleship got a little love (hate?) as well. Hit the jump to read the winners.

Proving that just because you can doesn’t mean you should, the new green-band trailer for That’s My Boy drops much of the cursing, nudity, and bodily fluids that comprised last week’s red-band trailer, and is, frankly, all the better for it. The jokes are still pretty hit or miss, but the fact that it has jokes at all — rather than just a lengthy string of “fucks” — makes this cut a vast improvement over the last one.
Adam Sandler stars as Donny, the ne’er-do-well father of Todd (Andy Samberg). When Donny realizes he’s deeply in debt, he reunites with his son, now a successful hedge-fund manager, and butts heads with his future daughter-in-law (Leighton Meester). Watch the trailer after the jump.

The first red-band trailer has dropped for Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg‘s That’s My Boy, formerly titled I Hate You Dad. Sandler plays an aging party boy and horrible father who falls into deep debt. He decides to move in with his more tightly wound son (Samberg), who’s on the verge of getting married, to a character played by Leighton Meester.
The script comes from Happy Endings creator David Caspe, with a rewrite by Ken Marino and David Wain, which is promising; the fact that it was directed by Mr. Popper’s Penguins writers Sean Anders and John Morris and produced by Sandler’s Happy Madison is somewhat less so. Watch the (NSFW) video after the jump.

Briefly: The man once high in the running to be crowned king of all manchildren has truly grown up: he’ll be playing the father of a character played by a comic who inherited his mantle. Let’s clarify. Adam Sandler will play the father and Andy Samberg his son in a film called I Hate You Dad.
THR explains that the film is about “a father who moves in on the eve of his son’s wedding and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be.” There’s no director at this point; the script is being developed at Happy Madison. But wait, here’s where it gets good: the original draft of the script was by David Caspe, but was rewritten by David Wain and Ken Marino. Suddenly I’ve got to pay attention to this one. If I Hate You Dad goes forward we’ll give you all the info.
