I was curious about Pixels. I loved the concept, and I was intrigued by the idea that Adam Sandler was stepping away from his typical lowbrow comedy to make a high-concept, effects-heavy action-comedy. But that optimism evaporated within five minutes. Pixels is the worst thing Sandler's done in recent memory. (Is it worse than Grown Ups 2? Honestly, I don't want to spend the time thinking about.) My review is up at Popular Mechanics.
