Whose new trailer is funnier: Eva Longoria's or Adam Sandler's?

Trailers_lQuick! Which sounds more promising: A big summer vehicle for a consistently bankable box-office star whose last three comedies have grossed $119 million, $137 million, and $158 million respectively, or an early February release starring that tabloid-staple Desperate Housewife who (fair or not) never seems to get nominated for anything?

Wait! Don’t answer yet. First, let’s make this a super scientific study: Grab a pen and a scrap of paper, and watch both trailers (embedded after the jump). Jot down how many times you laugh (slight, bemused exhalations count; horrified gasps do not) while watching each trailer, rendering your subjective opinions irrelevant in the process. Once you’re done, post your tallies in the comments section below.

I’ll kick things off with my personal laugh count: Over Her Dead Body, 6; You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, 0. Be warned: The former features clumsy-heroine-makes-messes clich├ęs; the latter portrays Adam Sandler as an irresistible stud who excites middle-aged women by (among other things) licking their hair. Now click through and press play; I shouldn’t have to endure these things by myself.

    Umm, my tally is 0 and 0. Yawn.

    Over Her Dead Body: Funny You Don’t Mess with the Zohan: Not. I smell a flop a brewing.

  • Anjeliki

    Not a single laugh, chortle or guffaw. In either. Closest I came to a reaction was when the announcer said, “Eva Longoria Parker.”

  • ktbuffy

    I would definitely see Over Her Dead Body before the Sandler movie, but I’d probably wait for DVD. Still, there were some definite laughs in the first one.

    Won’t see either….

    I thought Paul Rudd had more self respect then this.

  • peach

    Eva’s looks funnier but that’s not saying much. That Sandler pile of crap looks awful and Over her dead body seems like an update of Shelly Long’s stinker “Hello Again” which I secretly love by the way…

  • Courtney

    Over Her Dead Body: 0
    You Don’t Mess With the Zohan: 1, when he makes the kid cry and then knocks him out. Pretty pathetic if you ask me. Now I don’t have to waste $25 at the theater.

    Dead – 1 – when the said Eva Longoria Porter, when did she start using that name?
    Zohan – 1 – for the Hezbollah voicemail
    Neither one seems any good.

    I’ll take a RomCom any day over a Sandler flick. As far as Zohan goes, I think I’d rather see P.S. I Love You 10 times in a row instead. It would be less painful, I’m sure. peach– I too loved that Shelly Long movie, and I must have a thing for movies where people come back as ghosts because I liked the Reese Witherspoon one and “All of Me” with Steve Martin as well.

  • krikky

    Paul Rudd is WAAAAAY too good for this drivel. What was he thinking?

  • Traci

    I actually liked them both but I’m easily amused :)
    Eva – 8
    Adam – 5

  • skye

    Over Her Dead Body- 10, Two extreme outbursts when teh mustard fell all over her, and when teh dudes arm caught on fire
    Don’t Mess With Zohan- 3, The foot thing was kind of funny, but I rolled my eyes ten times more. I’ll wait till this comes on TV

  • Jean

    As someone who spent time in Israel and Palestine, I chuckled once at Zohan, for an inside joke. Other than that, they both look horrific.
