Six or eight months ago, out of respect for the work that he does with mentally handicapped folks, I promised a long-time reader of ours that I wouldn’t use the word “retarded” in any of my post to describe a person’s level of stupidity, and since that time, I’ve done my damndest to hold true to that promise. But, this? Knucklehead? I’m pretty sure the word is used in the movie’s logline (though, iMDB lists the character as a “sweet gentle giant,” which has to be the worst euphemism for that word I’ve ever heard).

Anyway, the movie is about how Mark Feuerstein commits career suicide by training a sweet, gentle giant to become a wrestler so that he can clear some debt. Melora Hardin (oh, Jan) and Denis Farina co-star. The gentle giant — his name is apparently Big Show. His family must be very proud.

It’s an embarrassment to humanity.

And in the other corner, here’s the first image of Adam Sandler in character from his upcoming movie, Jack and Jill, where he will play both title characters and rip a hole in the stupidity continuum.
