[Movies]Straightzi is Ruining Everything

Adam Sandler used to be pretty great. SNL, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Punch Drunk Love...

Now he's just awful.

Grown Ups
Grown Ups 2
Pixels

Those movies for Netflix... Everything he touches is garbage but also manages to make a lot of money for the most part.

Let's all celebrate and discuss movies that have nothing to do with Adam Sandler in this Adam Sandler themed movie thread.

    The Wedding Singer is a great film and I won't let Sandler's recent apathy to the genre spoil my enjoyment of it.

    Nah I think there's a pretty big difference between something like Happy Gilmore and Grown Ups 2.

    Though Punch Drunk Love is maybe the only one of those I'd say is really good.

    Waterboy, Billy Madison, and Happy Gilmore are in my top 3. I have Billy Madison quotes in my vocabulary to this day.

    Shit, I forgot about Wedding Singer.

    I love Wedding Singer.

    Old Sandler is immensely quotable and at times hilarious.

    He fell into a pattern that overstayed its welcome around Little Nicky though.

    To me, his most forgettable movie is Mr. Deeds.

    I know I've seen it once and I know the general premise but other than that I remember nothing about the movie.

    I've never seen an Adam Sandler movie. The only thing I ever saw him in was "At A Medium Pace".

    I'm comfortable with staying that way.

    Everyone should see Happy Gilmore if only for Carl Weathers.

    It doesn't do John Turturro justice, but John Turturro is really good for what he's given. That's about all I remember.

    I believe the most recent good Adam Sandler movie was Reign Over Me

    which was about a 9/11 widower and bromance, and made two hundred thousand dollars

    a year later, don't mess with the zohan made a hundred million

    incidentally, fuck everything forever

    For a long time, Punch Drunk Love was my favorite movie ever

    Would that we lived in the alternate universe where it set him on a career path of good stuff

    I mean, the premise wouldn't really play out that way in real life. But it was funny and cute.

    It grossed 22 million against a 20 million budget.

    And it was basically resoundingly mediocre at best from the sources I heard from.

    I really liked Funny People and thought it was good and thought provoking.

    A little too long, but good.

    Chris Rock-Great standup, but he has made a lot of terrible movies. I heard Top Five was really good though
    Adam Sandler-Hasn't been good for a long time but SNL and his early movies were great.
    David Spade-Good in small doses, I appreciate his snarkiness but I know it irritates a lot of people
    Kevin James-His standup was good
    Rob Schneider-Comedy poison
    Josh Gad-Never actually seen a movie with him


    Now I just I miss Chris Farley.

    I just saw Spy. It was pretty good!

    Jason Statham was hilarious.

    reign over me is the only good 9/11 movie that has been made in my opinon.

    and the reason it is so good is that adam sandler did not write or direct it, he merely performed in it.

    I know who Josh Gad is because I was one of the people who saw 21 in the theater

    he was also a Daily Show correspondent for a very, very brief time

    his bits were not good

    He seems like the kind of dude that if you saw him on the street tomorrow he'd still shake your hand and wish you a nice day

    i hate basically everything kevin james does but I don't think there are many people around that do physical comedy at the level he does.

    like, Chris Pratt is better but then again what can't that guy do better than other people.
