People's Favourite Adam Sandler Movie?

Hi!

I will probably not get much respect for saying this but I'm quite a big fan of Adam Sandler movies. He's made some good and bad ones but thankfully I haven't really seen the bad ones. My question is if you also like his movies which is your favourite. Mine has to be "Just Go With It" which was a few years ago with Jennifer Aniston. It has a good story, is funny and is set for the most of it in Hawaii which looks great.

So please if there is any other Adam Sandler fan out there what is your favourite movie?

Many thanks,

Pierre

Definitely NOT a fan, I do not appreciate grade school toilet humour that much. I thought he did good work in 'Reign On Me'

The only Adam Sandler film I've seen that I really liked was Happy Gilmore.

Happy Gilmore - great movie.

I don't think I've seen a new Adam Sandler movie in years now. You can only watch him playing himself for so long....

Click by far. It does have a message and Christopher Walken adds value as usual. Anger Management is good too.

Airheads is the only film I've ever seen from start to finish with him in it, so that would have to be my favorite. It is NOT my favorite Steve Buscemi movie.

He's got that new one out, "That's My Boy" and while it's funny, it's incredibly crude.

What's so sad is that he's capable of doing so, so much better.

I think Anger Management was quite good.. but Adam Sandler is a bit like Jim Carrey.. Once you've seen one of their movies, you've actually seen them all.

Click was also quite good, but after that, I started getting bored with his movies.

Happy Gilmore and Wedding Singer by far are his best in my opinion.

I also like 50 first dates and Big Daddy.

Was a pretty big fan of his SNL work.......

Hi!

Just wanted to say many thanks for the replies. One thing I did notice in his movies is that in his older movies he is a real loser with women and in his new movies he tends to be very successful. Maybe it mirrored his real life!

Many thanks,

Pierre

Happy Gilmore

Wedding Singer

Billy Madison

Anger Management

However, his group of cronies that he makes almost every movie with, I could do without.

Yep. He peaked at Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. Should've stopped while he was ahead. He appears to be following the career trajectory of Eddie Murphy.

Mr Deeds is probably my favorite. Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison are great ones too. Click was okay but nothing I would write home about. This new one he has coming out looks kinda ehhh. I probably won't end up seeing it until they throw it on the movie channels. Though I suppose after that last flop Happy Madison needs a winner.

lol Can't tell is serious or.............

That has to be one of his worst movies, right behind Jack and Jill. Scenes lacked direction, they simply weren't funny and the whole digging himself into a big hole was so forced. He took the lies in directions that were so unnecessary. He should never have gotten in to such a mess, especially for a character who is supposed to be an expert liar! And the other characters? The you girl speaking with an accent, Nick Swardson's character...ugh, so ridiculous! It's too painful for me to watch.

Now Adam Sandler isn't known for making great movies, but come on. Happy Gilmore, Mr. Deeds, Big Daddy, Anger Management, 50 First Dates, while all very silly are so much better! One thing that I like about Sandler is he gets to make out with a beautiful big-name actress in all his films. Must be nice!

Anyone else liked the Zohan?

The mention of Sandler is usually enough for me to never watch a movie, but I found the zohan's stupid puns and ethnic clichés were hilarious.
I like stupid movies...

I like Adam Sandler and yes some of his movies are cheesy, but I love the other characters in his movies that support him. Rob Schneider (50 first Dates, Zohan, Grown-ups, Big Daddy, Click, Chuck and Larry)
Steve Buscemi (Chuck and Larry, Grown-ups, Deeds)
John Turturro (Deeds, Zohan, Anger Managment)
I do like how he uses a lot of the same guys in his movies, the 3 guys that were in almost all of his early ones, as well as John McEnroe and Kevin James.
As for the Hot babes in his movies, Zohan, Click, Just Go with it, Anger Managment.

I'm not a fan of Adam Sandler, but I did enjoy "The Longest Yard" and "Zohan"
I'm amazed no one brought up "The longest yard" here!!
