Pixels is the classic Hollywood tale of something interesting and new shoved through the Hollywood meat-grinder, mangled and twisted into something horrifyingly repulsive. Seriously, the only thing the Adam Sandler Pixels movie is good for is helping you get a nap in on a lazy Sunday afternoon. An afternoon so lazy you can’t bring yourself to exert the energy to reach for the remote to change the channel as you drift off into sleep. I found myself nodding off just watching this Honest Trailers look at the disaster that is Pixels.
Here’s the Honest Trailer, which lays it all out. If Peter Dinklage and Sean Bean can’t save a movie, even for those short moments they are on screen, you know its bad.
Now take a look at what spawned that wreck of a movie and try to figure out how many Hollywood suits it took to screw the whole thing up. Wait, it only took one guy, Adam Sandler.
