Victim: Bridgette Wilson

Worldwide Gross: $26,488,734

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", ...

Note: Honestly, it really looked 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...

Victim: none

Worldwide Gross: $22,611,954

Note: Well, I have finally watched the damned thing and guess what? In this movie, he didn't get any girl at all (he did try to hook up with Monica Potter but since it was only for a short scene and since it didn't get anywhere, it certainly didn't qualify) and the movie was of course a box-office flop. It would be the first and last time that Sandler would try to do something more or less resembling an action flick and, afterwards, he would then keep making some moronic comedies with some improbable gorgeous girlfriends for the rest of his career.

Worldwide Gross: $123,306,987

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 ?!?

Worldwide Gross: $185,991,646

Note: Can you believe that this movie was, at some point, the highest grossing sports comedy of all time? Sandler 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 ?!

Victim: Emily Watson

Worldwide Gross: $24,665,649

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...

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...

Victim: Emmanuelle Chriqui

Worldwide Gross: $199,936,011

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.

Note: I remember when ‘Grown Ups’ was released, even though it was rather successful at the box-office, many considered that it was one of the worst movies released at the time but, to be honest, even though I usually don’t like Sandler’s work at all, I thought it was not one of his worst movies, far from it. Well, this sequel gave me pretty much the same feeling. Indeed, even though the concept had some potential, the whole thing was still rather underwhelming but, at least, it was rather harmless and some of the jokes actually did work. Eventually, the most disappointing thing about this movie was how completely random it felt. Anyway, even though everybody thought it was rather terrible, it is still made a lot of money at the box-office.

Pixels (2015)




Victims:

Worldwide Gross: $244,874,809

Note: Even though I thought this movie was considered as a flop, it still managed to make $240m worldwide gross so, I guess, it was financially actually fairly successful. Even so, it turned out to be pretty lame, I'm afraid. I mean, to make a comedy about vintage gaming, after above all the success of 'Wreck-It Ralp', was in fact a decent idea but it just didn't work. What went wrong here? First of all, the whole concept of having some hardcore gamers saving the world was just weak and not really funny whatsoever. I mean, even the game angle was poorly developed.

Worldwide Gross: unknown

Note: Well, to be honest, even though I have never cared for Adam Sandler's work, I didn't think it was so awful afterwards. I mean, sure, it was still pretty lame and not really funny at all but the guy had done much worse in the past and I don't think it was such a bad idea to mix his humor with the Western genre. At least, it was more original than most of his flicks and the cast involved was pretty decent. Helll, I even thought that Taylor Lautern was actually funny. However, as usual with Sandler, the whole thing was still rather misguided.

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: 7 years, 7 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: 7 years, 7 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: 7 years, 7 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: 7 years, 7 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: 7 years, 7 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: 7 years, 7 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: 7 years, 7 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: 7 years, 7 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

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.

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: 6 years, 2 months 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: 6 years, 1 month 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. :))

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: 5 years, 10 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.
Posted: 2 years, 9 months ago at Jan 17 1:34
Can't say anything bad about his oldest films: Billy M. all the way to The Waterboy, they were and are still in my stoner comedy collection. But yeah, boy i wonder if he's ever done casting couches. Which one(s) actually really dated him and/or had sex with this goof? Scaaaaary! Poor girls. They're all way too beautiful, and smart actresses for the most part.
