Inside Move: Sandler pic storyline revealed

For hush-hush Roth plot, proof in pudding coupon

As Adam Sandler wrapped shooting the Oahu scenes last week for the untitled Paul Thomas Anderson movie from Joe Roth’s Revolution Studios, the closely guarded storyline of the $25 million film has come to light.

The Anderson-penned and -helmed pic, which production staff have referred to as the “X4 Project,” co-stars Academy Award-nominated Emily Watson. Sandler plays the owner of a phone-sex business that is slowly failing; as a result, three thugs are sent out to get him.

Meanwhile, his sister tries to set him up on a blind date with Watson’s character. Sandler is disinterested, but ends up meeting her by chance. Later, Sandler’s character grows obsessed with saving coupons from a pudding company that’s offering frequent flyer miles with every purchase, and eventually he earns enough miles to take a trip around the world. But he can’t forget the mysterious woman who, he learns, has left for a vacation in Hawaii. With his life in turmoil, Barry uses his coupons for a trip to Hawaii to find her.

The production filmed mostly in and around Waikiki with some shots at the airport and Kahala Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where Sandler stayed.
