1. Billy Madison (1995)


Victim: Bridgette Wilson

US Gross: $25,588,750

Note: That's where it all started... Adam's Sandler first starring movie. Honestly, I saw it and thought it was a rather average and moronic comedy. If it had been a flop, we may have missed all those stupid movies... However, it became a success and the blue-print for all the following comedies starring Sandler. Actually, they all could be called "Billy Madison 2", "Billy Madison 3", "Billy Madison 4", ...

2. Happy Gilmore (1996)


Victim: Julie Bowen

US Gross: $38,624,000

Note: Honestly, it really looed like "Billy Madison goes golfing" to me... At least, there were a few funny things concerning golf but it was nothing mind-blowing whatsoever. Anyway, it was a big success again for Sandler...

3. Bulletproof (1996)


Victim: Kristen Wilson

US Gross: $21,162,420

Note: I haven´t seen this on but it seems they tried to combine his moronic style of comedy with an average action/buddy movie. Considering the gross, they seem to have dropped the concept...

4. The Wedding Singer (1998)


Victim: Drew Barrymore

US Gross: $80,224,502

Note: Adam Sandler continues his winning streak with this rom-com which I personnally found really average. And why on earth does it take place during the 80's ?!? Is it supposed to make the movie funnier ?!?

5. The Waterboy (1998)


Victim: Fairuza Balk

US Gross: $161,487,252

Note: I haven´t seen this one but, as you can see, with each movies, he keeps doubling the income whereas if you look at the quality of the concerned pictures, you keep asking yourself why is this guy so popular ?!

People who added this item 2724  Average listal rating (1792 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.4 
6. Big Daddy (1999)


Victim: Joey Lauren Adams

US Gross: $163,479,795

Note: My wife bought me this just before or after I became a father. It is kind of sweet of her, even though, the movie is just so lame. But I forgive her because she didn´t know it was that bad...

7. Little Nicky (2000)





Victims:
- Patricia Arquette
- Reese Witherspoon (ok, she is not his love interest or whatsoever, she is his mother! But still...)

US Gross: $39,442,871

Note: Considering the gross, we can say that this one flopped. Was it the haircut? Did the moviegoers wake up eventually and decided that they won´t tolerate this crap anymore ? I saw this one and it was very very average...

8. Punch-Drunk Love (2002)


Victim: Emily Watson

US Gross: $17,791,031

Note: I was expecting a lot from this movie. Not because of Sandler but because it was directed by PT Anderson, one of the best directors around nowadays. Honestly, I was kind of disappointed but still it was way better than everything else Adam Sandler did before. It is certainly worth a look and I will certainly give it another shot in some time in the future. The funniest part is that, with this movie, Adam Sandler finally tried something else, something more challenging, more interesting and what was his reward? The movie completely tanked at the box-office...

9. Mr. Deeds (2002)


Victim: Winona Ryder

US Gross: $126,203,320

Note: This time, Sandler decided to remake a classic... I have seen both and even though the original is not one of my favorite, it is still a good movie whereas the remake is completely lame and unnecessary. Come on! How could you switch Gary Cooper with Adam Sandler?!? The best part is that it was a success at the box-office... You gotta to be kidding me...

10. Anger Management (2003)


Victim: Marisa Tomei

US Gross: $133,756,285

Note: A movie with Jack Nicholson is always worth it and that's why I watched it but honestly, it is nothing great... But it didn't stop Sandler's fans and once again, he scored a hit...

People who added this item 3981  Average listal rating (2682 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.8 
11. 50 First Dates (2004)


Victim: Drew Barrymore (again...)

US Gross: $120,776,832

Note: Honestly, this movie was not bad at all. It is like a romantic version of Memento and I actually enjoyed it. And considering the gross, I wasn't the only one. A nice surprise!

12. Spanglish (2004)




Victims:
- Paz Vega
- Téa Leoni

US Gross: $42,044,321

Note: Honestly, I didn't like this flick but Adam Sandler was really good in it. And, can you believe it? He was the least obnoxious character. Sandler gave a very good performance and was mercilessly punished by the box-office.

13. The Longest Yard (2005)


Victim: Courtney Cox

US Gross: $158,119,460

Note: Once again, Sandler remains in his comfort zone... It was not bad but, honestly, I thought it was rather boring (Courtney Cox looked stunning though). Do you think you can switch Burt Reynolds (in his prime) with Adam Sandler without having us noticing?!? But who cares because it was again a big success and made some big bucks...

14. Click (2006)


Victim: Kate Beckinsale

US Gross: $137,340,146

Note: Seriously, the premise was actually pretty good but the execution was just so lame... It is a very forgettable movie but it didn't stop Adam Sandler in his winning streak...
johanlefourbe's rating:

People who added this item 831  Average listal rating (491 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.6 
15. Reign Over Me (2007)




Victims:
- Saffron Burrows
- Liv Tyler (ok, she is not his love interest or whatsoever, she is his shrink! But still...)

US Gross: $19,661,987

Note: Like other comic actors (like Robin Williams or Jim Carrey), Adam Sandler had to do a dramatic part and he actually pulled it off. This is his best movie and he is very good in it. And guess what ? It tanked at the box-office...

People who added this item 1397  Average listal rating (888 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 6.1 
16. I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007)


Victim: Jessica Biel

US Gross: $119,684,970

Note: What a lame premise and what a lame movie.... I have nothing to add here. And check the gross... I mean loads and loads of people actually paid some expansive theater tickets to see this crap?!? I saw it for free on TV but still felt ripped off...
johanlefourbe's rating:

People who added this item 1224  Average listal rating (827 ratings) 4.7  IMDB Rating 5.5 
17. You Don't Mess with the Zohan (2008)


Victim: Emmanuelle Chriqui

US Gross: $100,018,837

Note: Since this movie was written by Judd Apatow, I thought I should give it a shot. Eventually, on one hand, the whole thing really had some potential but, on the other hand, Sandler's character was completely obnoxious and the jokes were just terrible throughout the whole thing. However, what I think doesn't really matter because it was again a success.

18. Bedtime Stories (2008)






Victims:
- Keri Russell
- Teresa Palmer
- Courtney Cox (again...ok, she is not his love interest or whatsoever, she is his sister! But still...)

US Gross: $109,993,847

Note: Honestly, it wasn't that bad. It is an harmless and innocent familly flick and if you check the gross, it seems that Adam Sandler is now unstoppable...

19. Funny People (2009)


Victim: Leslie Mann

US Gross: $51,855,045

Note: I haven't seen it yet but I heard some good things about it and I will definitely see it in the future. And again, when Sandler tries something interesting/different/whatever, he gets mercilessly punished by the box-office... Such a shame!

People who added this item 956  Average listal rating (624 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.9 
20. Grown Ups (2010)


Victim: Salma Hayek

US Gross: $162,001,186

Note: Even though I heard here and there that it was one of the worst movies made in 2010, I don't think it was that bad actually. I mean, it was nothing great and pretty average but I though the whole thing was rather good-hearted and harmless. But it doesn't matter at all what I think because Adam Sandler here is back in his comfort zone and again, makes a chuck load of money...

21. Just Go with It (2011)











(What? One pick was enough? maybe...)

Victims:
- Nicole Kidman (ok, she is not his love interest or whatsoever but still)
- Jennifer Anniston
- Minka Kelly
- Brooklyn Decker

US Gross: $103,028,109

Note: The premise was lame, even the title was lame... It was still a success again anyway! To be honest, pretty much like 'Grown Ups', it was not as bad as I thought it would be. The whole thing was still pretty lame but Sandler had done worse and there were a (very) few funny bits.
johanlefourbe's rating:

People who added this item 375  Average listal rating (231 ratings) 3.9  IMDB Rating 3.5 
22. Jack and Jill (2011)


Victim: Katie Holmes

US Gross: $74,158,157

Note: Oh my God... This is so far the worst movie ever starring Sandler!!! This time, he goes all 'Tootsie' on us and it just looked terrible.
johanlefourbe's rating:

People who added this item 256  Average listal rating (157 ratings) 5.2  IMDB Rating 5.6 
23. That's My Boy (2012)




Victims:
- Susan Sarandon
- Eva Amurri Martino

US Gross: $27,810,794

Note: It looks pretty bad but according to PvtCaboose91, it is actually 'Astonishingly hilarious' but I have my doubts... Anyhow, it seems to be a huge flop again. What's going on, Adam?!?


 

I have seen many movies with Adam Sandler and honestly, I don't get their appeal.

There are 2 things that really bother me with this guy...

1. His success. Not only Adam Sandler makes useless moronic comedies but they are also f*cking successful! Especially in the US. I even read somewhere on the internet that nowadays in Hollywood, there are only 3 bankable actors : Will Smith, Johnny Depp and..... Adam Sandler! It is that bad....

2. In all his movies, he always has the most interesting/gorgeous women as wife/girlfriend/love interest/whatever... I can understand that an actress dreams to work with Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Matt Damon, Edward Norton,... but Adam Sandler! I guess it has to do with his success mentioned in my previous point...

if you don't believe me, check the list...

Haha, while I personally enjoy Adam Sandler sometimes (definitely more often than you), I enjoyed your list. Punch-Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, and Spanglish are easily my favorite films of his though & I wish he'd stick to drama instead of comedy.

As someone who saw Funny People, I'd say you're not missing much. It's a decent film for the first hour & 15-30 minutes or so and then completely falls apart into crap. You've been warned!
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 3:31
You could add Minka Kelly to Just go with it. She's the first gril he hooks up with in that one and I laughed that they expected me to honestly believe she would sleep with him. It's insulting.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 9:26
I'm glad you liked 50 first Dates, its one of my favourite movies :)
But you're right with this list, it is strange with his appeal.
I also thought of another movie where Ben Stiller hooked up with Jennifer Aniston, he doesn't fit either... :)
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 9:40
Im not his fan, nor do I dislike him! But this list proves something... Boss!

And I lol'd at the "Victim" feature xD
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 10:26
...did you just put Robin Williams in the same category as Adam Sandler?! :O


I'm always rather WTF?!ish about him playing with all those hot women, too, though. I really dislike him to be honest. *erm*
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 12:29
@tersanay, I have checked for a pic with Minka Kelly but I couldn't find any.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 13:10
I can understand that you don't like him johan, but in 50 First Dates I actually think he does an decent job. Good film too. Anger Management is also a funny film. Not the best there is, but still. Click has also it's moments.

I'm also interested in watching Punch-Drunk Love and Reign Over Me.

Now, don't think I'm fan of the guy, because I'm not. But I've watched that he gets a lot of crap here on Listal, so there had to be said some upside about him (which the giraffe points out here, I think). Can the answer to the hatred feeling to him be just that he does it successful and not because he is an poorly actor? I'm mean come on. He's not the worst actor out there!

I know I'm gonna be wripped to pieces by saying this, but it needed to be said!
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 13:53
@Kris, first of all, this is not a hatred list against Adam Sandler. I just wanted to make fun of him, that's all.

My point is that he always does the same thing (which you may like or not) and gets loads of cash, nice chicks but when he tries something else, he is never rewarded. Thus this list is also a critic to the whole system which doesn't reward creativity at all, in my point of view.

...and indeed, 50 first dates was not bad at all and I said so in the list.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 14:05
It's true, every time Adam tries to play dramatic and does a pretty good job, his movies fail. I don't get it. Personally I'm a fan of his comedy movies as well, (except for Chuck and Larry) but his dramatic roles are much better overall.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 18 19:24
He's just a bad actor haha who plays the same roles! Interesting list, I wouldn't say "Hottest women", but I get your point and I agree 100% hahaa

Ive been asking myself the same question when it comes to Will Ferrell. Why is this man so popular his movies suck, and in every movie he's the same damn character
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Apr 19 12:37
@jay-jay, indeed, I guess you could make a similar list with Will Ferrell.

Adam Sandler is great and he was at his peak in Punch-Drunk Love!

He makes me laugh so hard!!!
For me he's the BEST comedy actor

This list would be better compiled if you had seen the movies you're talking about.
Posted: 3 years ago at Aug 12 12:41
@los414, I have seen 12 of those movie that it is more than 50%. I think it is more than enough to judge Sandler's work. Can you explain to me how this list would be better compiled if I watched all of them ?
Posted: 3 years ago at Aug 12 18:43
No, you're right. And by the way, Marisa Tomei totally deserved the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for 'My Cousin Vinny'! Even though I didn't see the movie. That last statement made me sound smart.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Sep 29 13:37
Funny list and agree with most of it. The only time I ever thought Sandler was funny was in Happy GIlmore and Zohan.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Sep 29 17:17

Adam Sandler is like a car accident, no matter how gruesome it looks, you can't look away. I think I've watched all of his films by now, but I still abhor the man. Seriously, I refuse to give him the benefit of doubt, he's just terrible.
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at May 24 14:33
I CAN'T STAND ADAM SANDLER!
Great list
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Jul 30 22:26
Lame list. Adam Sandler is a good actor and his movies are fun and enjoyable. Actually, I think he's better looking than Leonardo DiCaprio or Matt Damon, the ones you put in the description. And about the women....jealous much?
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Jul 31 5:42
@BellaLugosi, you are enitled to your opinion but, honestly, if Adam Sandler is such a good actor, why does he always play the same character over and over again? Furthermore, if he is so good, how come 'Jack and Jill won ALL the Razzie awads? I rest my case... I think If I was a woman I would be more interested to work with Damon and DiCaprio because they are actually good actors, not because they are good looking... The whole women thing is not a matter of jealousy... First of all, it is a catchy title, secondly, I find it just plain lame and annoying to see all those moronic guys end up with such chicks. Finally, if this list is so lame, how come I almost got 100 votes? I think you are in the minority, dude...
Posted: 2 years ago at Sep 1 19:59
I'm not a dude, i'm a girl. And that was only my opinion. And for God's sake, he doesn't 'own' those 'chicks', he just plays in movies with them. :))
Congratulations for your 98 votes, what a winner you are.
Posted: 2 years ago at Sep 2 7:11
@Andreaa, dude, I know you are a girl... I know he doesn't own those girls but those stupid characters always end up with such women and I find rather annoying but of course you are entitled to have your own opinion.
Posted: 2 years ago at Sep 2 7:39
Great list. Adam Sandler is hit and miss for me, some movies I really like and some I don't. I refuse to see Jack and Jill because it looks totally stupid.
Posted: 1 year, 8 months ago at Dec 22 20:51
How have I not voted for this yet- I have seen a few of these and agree, how does he get the girls? Not only are they much better looking but usually they're good people in these movies, and Sandler's character is some layabout or schmuck who screws everything up constantly, then gives some speech at the end about how he'll try to do better and then they take him back? Whhyyyyy.
