    Adam Sandler

    Will he ever make a funny movie again? I feel like it has been nearly a decade since he made something that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    We were just talking about that last night. The really funny thing is, he makes some serious cash making terrible movies and I'm pretty sure he's content with that. His early stuff was really good though. It was a combination of me being younger and him being funnier that made his movies seem so much better.

    anymore it seems like his movies are just an excuse for him to get a paycheck for all of his buddies, who'd never see an acting role if it weren't for him.

    supposedly "funny people" has some decent moments, but not because of him. I've never seen it though.

    Funny people and grow ups had some great one liners, but yes, movies are bad.

    Re: Adam Sandler

    Grownups wasn't a great movie but it was pretty good imo. I'm not a great judge of movies though since I don't see many and I never go in first run theaters. i also have never seen his early stuff.

    Re: Adam Sandler

    I think he just churns them out cause its his production company and they keep any profits. Even if the only make 10 mil profit a movie twice a year, on top of them getting paid, it pays the bills. I wish the movie going public would figure out that hiss movies aren't getting better. Jackn Jill? Seriously? people paid to see that, or bought it on DVD?

    Spanglish was an outstanding movie, the only one by him that I consider excellent.

    So when the internet hoax about him dying it really just was talking about his career being dead.

    I'm going to this one with my dad and brother. I think it looks good. I agree for the most part his recent movies have been on the down side. Part of that is that he like all of us eventually has to grow up. He has married and has kids so I think that's why he has gone down the family movie route (watching click as I type this which wasn't bad). That's why this new movie looks like is reaching into his sophomoric humor past.

    I thought that movie was excellent and I had hoped he would make a transition to more of that type of acting. I thought he was great in his role there.


    It's all snark from here on out
