Considering "Grown Ups" was the highest-grossing film Adam Sandler has ever been a part of, it doesn't come as too much of a surprise to hear that he has been hard at work trying to bring the gang back together for a follow-up. The film starred a collection of Sandler's friends including Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider, and went on to resonate strongly with audiences.
News broke earlier this month that "Grown Ups 2" has allegedly carved out a July 12, 2013 release date with original writer Fred Wolf in negotiations to pen a screenplay. MTV News caught up with Rock while he was at Sundance promoting his film "2 Days in New York," and he confirmed that he definitely has heard from Sandler about making another movie together. He just doesn't know if it will be "Grown Ups 2," or something different.
Like a big heaping bowl of Kraft macaroni and cheese (soon to be hocked by the Homeless Man With the Golden Voice!), the People's Choice Awards are pure comfort food for the entertainment-consuming soul. You can count on them to deliver a fun, star-studded evening where the movies, actors, musicians, etc. that you want to win actually do win -- probably because, you know, it's the fans that vote and determine the victors.
The 2011 PCAs, held Wednesday night in Los Angeles, were no different. Perennial winners "Twilight" and Johnny Depp dominating once again. The "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" nabbed honors for Favorite Movie and Favorite Drama Movie, while the eye-pleasing "Eclipse" trio of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner took home the award for Favorite Onscreen Team.

Every year has its share of great movies (check out our top 10 films of the year here and vote for your fave here) and not-so-great movies... and 2010 was no exception. There were the sure-fire winners that totally failed with critics, like "The Tourist" and the reboot of "A Nightmare on Elm Street," and there were the films that never had a chance, like "Case 39" and "Furry Vengeance"... as well as, apparently, anything with Katherine Heigl and/or Josh Duhamel.
It's kind of mean to kick these flicks while they're down, so we decided to go to an outside source for some hard data. In other words, we checked out RottenTomatoes to see which flicks were the 25 lowest rated of 2010. Then we made a convenient little poll out of the 25 films to see which one you decide is the worst. Hit the jump to vote in the poll, and let us know in the comments or on Twitter which films you thought were the bottom of the barrel in 2010 (and feel free to yell at me if you disagree)!

Are Tom Cruise's days on top of the box office over? That's the question that many are asking after his latest action comedy "Knight and Day" failed to achieve the success it set out to attain on Friday, kicking off a box office weekend where the "Toy Story" threequel and Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups" are set to win big.
