Adam Sandler + Hottest women on Earth = ?!?@#$%?!
1237 6 6.41. 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", ...
1757 6.3 72. Happy Gilmore (1996)
293 5.4 5.83. Bulletproof (1996)
1816 6.4 6.84. The Wedding Singer (1998)
1384 5.7 65. The Waterboy (1998)
2665 6 6.46. Big Daddy (1999)
1420 5.2 5.37. Little Nicky (2000)
- 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...
1223 6.9 7.38. 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...
1629 5.3 5.89. 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...
2644 6 6.210. Anger Management (2003)
3892 6.5 6.811. 50 First Dates (2004)
1127 5.8 6.512. Spanglish (2004)
- 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.
1340 5.9 6.313. 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...
3505 5.9 6.514. Click (2006)
809 7 7.615. Reign Over Me (2007)
- 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...
1361 5.7 6.116. 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...
1188 4.8 5.517. 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.
745 5.9 6.118. Bedtime Stories (2008)
- 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...
982 5.8 6.419. Funny People (2009)
918 5.4 5.920. 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...
939 6 6.421. Just Go with It (2011)
(What? One pick was enough? maybe...)
- 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.
357 4 3.522. Jack and Jill (2011)
239 5.1 5.623. That's My Boy (2012)
