Clints Bits – 24/11

Saw the trailer for the new Adam Sandler / Drew Barrymore flick last Friday. Looks quite good. It’s pretty obvious we aren’t going to have another “Wedding Singer” smasheroo on our hands, but it looks well done. Funnily enough, the title of the film on the trailer was “50 first Dates”. Now, hang on, wasn’t it called “Fifty first Kisses?” Time will tell I guess. Today’s bits wait…
