MTV News has got none other than Adam Sandler for a 30-minute, no-holds-barred interview about his new film, "Grown Ups 2" and his storied career — and it's going down now on MTV.com. But just four minutes earlier, on MTV, fans got their first look at the upcoming sequel with an exclusive clip introduced by Sandler himself.
Host Josh Horowitz met up with Sandler at the comedian's private basketball court, which he dubbed Happy Madison Square Garden in honor of his Happy Madison production company. The pair talk about who has shot hoops there in the past, including "Grown Ups 2" co-star Taylor Lautner. "Taylor is not a basketball player but somehow is weaselly enough to beat most opponents," Sandler revealed.
Sandler unveils a sequence from the film where his character Lenny and Lenny's longtime buddies marvel at a lake overlook where they used to come and get into trouble as teenagers. But their trip down memory lane is interrupted when Taylor Lautner, who plays a frat boy named Andy, suggests they find another spot to reminisce.
"This is Kappa Eta Sigma property," Andy announces. "You might want to quit perving on our ladies and get back to your trailer home."
Sandler and his buddies are none too impressed with their younger counterparts. "I haven't been around this many arrogant white college kids since Eminem played Duke," Kurt (Chris Rock) observes.
"At least we got into college, skinny Danny Glover," retorts Andy's "brother" Milo (Milo Ventimiglia). The two proceed to perform an elaborate handshake that involves a game of rock-paper-scissors, among other flourishes.
Lenny watches closely, and then responds. "That was a good handshake, and we've got a good one too," he confesses. "It goes like this." Kurt and Eric (Kevin James) shake hands politely as Kurt inquires, "How are you doing, sir?"
After showing the clip, Horowitz and Sandler play a quick game of "identify the abs," where he's supposed to discern which picture of a gut belongs to which of his co-stars. Sandler, perhaps naturally, picks himself for most of the photos involving carved-up muscles.
