Kevin James is inoffensive enough, even if his TV show sucks, but if you combine every comedy he’s made since 1999, the number of laughs amounts to seven, which is roughly the same number you get in 45 seconds of “Knocked Up.” Jessica Biel in a catsuit is…compelling, but doesn’t speak well for the comedy quotient. If that’s as hard as he’s willing to work for his craft, Sandler should just hire Biel and Jessica Alba and release 90 minutes of the two of them re-enacting the “a*s to a*s” scene from “Requiem for a Dream.”
