Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler pair up again for a rom-com-mystery that's an exaggerated version of an Agatha Christie whodunnit.

The setting is a yacht, there is an array of stereotypical characters (a glamorous Hollywood actress, a colonel, a famous racecar driver) and a murder victim that any one of them could be responsible for. 

It has been announced that it is the biggest opening weekend for a movie on Netflix –  not bad, right?

The reviews have been varied – and look, some people are gonna see Adam Sandler and  sh*t on it without watching it.

I've seen it and I would recommend giving it a chance – it's the kind of thing that's made for a Sunday afternoon when you're feeling a bit fragile.

You see, the movie does what it says on the tin.

It doesn't pretend to be a high brow piece of cinema but an easy-watching spoof on the murder mystery genre.

And that's why I liked it – the two leads have good chemistry and the fact that they're old friends stands to them as their marital bickering is believable. 

They play Nick and Audrey Spitz, a New York couple who are going on their honeymoon to Europe 15 years after they wed.

Things become interesting when the gorgeous Luke Evans as debonair Charles Cavendish invites them to his yacht.

Here, his uncle Malcolm (the legend that is Terence Stamp) has married Charles' former love and he is signing his new will and giving everything to her.

He's murdered before he can – and everyone on board is a suspect.

There is a cast of ''I've seen them before'' type of actors – we have Gemma Arterton, David Walliams, Adeel Akhtar, and Dany Boon. 

Not to mention the stunning locations that serve as backdrops – Monte Carlo, Monaco, and Lake Como.

There are funny moments and enough action scenes and twists and turns to keep viewers happy.

I couldn't guess who the culprit was – however, it does take about 20 minutes to start and it's quite sluggish until they get off the plane.

So, if you find yourself with an hour and a half to spare, watch it yourself and see.

'Trashy' films are considered to refer to low budget movies, badly made flicks and those which include explicit features within.

Think 21 Jump Street, John Tucker Must Die, Sharknado and pretty much any films featuring Adam Sandler.

For a long time, it has been assumed that people who enjoy watching films such as these were of low intelligence… rude much?

Luckily for us 'trashy' flick fans, a study published in Poetics: Journal of Empirical Research on Culture, the Media and the Arts has reversed the idea that only uncultured souls binge watch Mean Girls all day.

The research carried out investigated how the phrase 'trashy movies' in terms of pop culture could be utilised in a better way.

The online survey collected data from regular viewers of films considered trashy, and measured their intelligence and IQ. The result? They're darn ACADEMICS.

One reason why these films appealed to people with high IQ's was the ironic value of the badly made films, as well as the culturally subversive elements.

Trashy films can be less cautious with its use of plot-lines and execution, less rigid in structure, which is enjoyable for smart folk allegedly.

More original ideas and less clichés seemingly feature in badly made movies…interesting. *strokes chin* Trashy dramas with absurd plots and terrible acting can also be plain GAS to watch, it's so bad that it's good. 

There's a reason why the world and it's mother watched A Christmas Prince, and it ain't because of the acting lads.

Jennifer Lawrence may have a reputation for being the girl next door, but it seems this notion has little grounding in reality if recent remarks made by the actress are anything to go by.

While being interviewed by fellow actor, Adam Sandler, on Variety's Actors on Actors series, the Oscar winner readily admits that she acts like 'an a**hole' in public.

While reflecting on her high-profile status, the 27-year-old was more than willing to admit that members of the public have often bore the brunt of an icy attitude.

"Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a**hole," she admitted during the interview. "And that's like my only way of defending myself."

After telling Adam that she often stops people from approaching her table in restaurants with a quick shake of her head, Jennifer went onto explain that she regularly avoids selfies with fans by insisting she's on a day off.

"You know what I do sometimes? I go, 'It's my day off'. Like, if it's Sunday, I'm like; 'It's Sunday, I'm not working today'."

Despite saying he generally takes a different approach, Adam praised Jennifer for her's, saying: "I think you're making the right move."

Adam Sandler has been criticised following an “uncomfortable” interview on The Graham Norton Show this week, during which he repeatedly put touched British actress, Claire Foy.

Viewers of the show took to Twitter to express to express their discomfort after the US actor placed his hand on Claire's knee as he told an anecdote about a trip with his parents.

Despite the actress appearing to squirm at the first touch, Adam once again reached over to rest his hand on her knee for a number of seconds.

Emma Thompson, who was also a guest on the show, seemed to be quite aware of the fact that the actor was acting inappropriately and appeared to glare at him until he removed his hand.

According to The Independent, a spokesperson for the married father-of-four described his actions as “a friendly gesture” – but rather unsurprisingly, not everyone interpreted them this way.

However, despite heavey criticism, many viewers jumped to the actor's defence, insisting his actions were harmless.

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star in the new romantic comedy, Blended, which sees them both as single parents who inevitably end up together.

Sandler hasn’t had too much luck with the box office in recent years so let’s hope his collaboration with the lovely Drew might change his fate!

OK so, it won’t be as good as The Wedding Singer or 50 First Dates, but how could anything be?
