Candy Land is a board game I have zero connection to, I never played it once in my childhood and only discovered its existence through American friends in recent years. This makes the decision to make adapt this non-entity of a board game into a movie all the more baffling than, say, adapting Battleships into a science-fiction movie.
At least that has the possibility of hearing Liam Neeson growl, "They sunk my battleship!"
Candy Land, again, a thing that I have no understanding or interest in, has the dubious honour of snagging Adam Sandler for the lead role.
This decision was announced by Hasbro, along with plans to move the project from Universal (who wisely sat on it for four merciful years) to Sony (who released The Smurfs last year and so have little compunction about bombarded their audiences with idiotic crap.
Adam Sandler headlining a movie based on something with no discernible plot of character: Business as usual, by the looks of things.
