Director Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”) transplants the smash Broadway musical to the screen. Diego Boneta and Julianne Hough are the young lovers chasing dreams of stardom in 1987 Los Angeles. Bryan Cranston, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mary J. Blige and Paul Giamatti co-star. Also, Tom Cruise sings. He sings Def Leppard. Yes, please!


History has taught us not to get suckered by promising trailers for Adam Sandler movies. Still, the previews for this R-rated comedy about an irresponsible father (Sandler) reconciling with his estranged son (Andy Samberg) are undeniably funny — in a crude, lowbrow, thoroughly inappropriate way.
