Adam Sandler earns raves at Cannes Film Fest (yes, really)

It's not every day you hear the name "Happy Gilmore" referenced at the Cannes Film Festival.

But that was the case Sunday when Noah Baumbach's "The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)," starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman, premiered at the French Riviera festival.

When the film's cast, which also includes Emma Thompson, assembled for a press conference, the moderator noted this was the second film that Sandler and Stiller have made together after that classic 1996 comedy.

"I just think it's cool to hear 'Happy Gilmore' mentioned at the Cannes," Stiller chuckled.
