Adam Sandler: Yay or Nay?

I think Adam Sandler is pretty much a love him or hate him kind of actor. I find most of his stuff to be stupid and not funny, but some of my friends absolutely love him. I don't hate everything he does. I liked Airheads and when he did Opera Man on SNL, but most of his work I just don't see the appeal.

The only movie worth a shit that he's ever been in is Punch Drunk Love. His other movies aren't funny at all and every director that has him cast simply makes him play the same character in every movie. "Get really pissed and yell at the bad guy." Ha ha. That, and talk with that really annoying voice.

I've yet to see Punch Drunk Love, but I'd like to. I've heard several good things about it. I meant to mention it in the original post, but I basically would have said that I didn't enter it into my equation.

Besides, his role in that movie is obviously a break from his normal roles anyway.

He's an every now and again guy for me. I can't sit down and watch every single Adam Sandler movie one after the other, but I can sit down and enjoy his movies like Happy Gilmore and The Waterboy every now and again.

His movies generally aren't really all that great, in my opinion. The first few I watched were pretty funny, but then after that, I realized how static his acting is. The only differences between any of the characters he plays are the clothes they wear. That, and like what Laser said, his "voice" really grates on the nerves after a while.

Happy Gilmore was the only one I'd watch again, and just because I love the Bob Barker fight scene

Gotta agree with Jimmy4 here. He's a 'yay' but in moderation...

Most of the time I hate the films he is in. But the Wedding Singer was very good. I think he is someone who could just fade a way in the next few years.

Like any comedian.

Sometimes, he hits it...and I laugh my ass off
And sometimes, he don't...and I turn the channel.
I don't usually go out of my way to see his movies in the theater,
I usually wait for the video.

But, he's decent enough.

Sandler has flopped harder then any comedian I can think of. Its suprising that somebody who started off so funny could drastically fall into the unfunny category so abruptly.

Don't find him funny at all, in fact I think he's a sad, sad individual, and I feel sorry for his parents knowing that they brought unto the earth such an unfortunate human being.

He was filler on SNL, nuf said...C'mon folks, we need better than that type of panderous comedy.

Gimme Robin Williams any day. He successfully made the big transition. Well done neighbor boy. Tiburon Rocks!

C'mon, tell us how you really feel

I have to say yay, because Happy Gilmore is one of my favourite comedy movies ever, and I really liked Punch Drunk Love and Billy Madison.

Other than those movies, The rest of his stuff (not including SNL) is sub-par.

As long as he doesn't waste his talent doing crap like Puch Drunk Love he is outstanding...even Little Nicky has big laughs in it [sure not a great movie, but some funny stuff].

Punch Drunk Love, CRAP? You're joking right . . . right? Are you crazy, that movie was kick ass.

In fact, that's one of my favorite movies that he has been in, if not my favorite.

I don't like "Adam Sandler Movies", like Big Daddy, or Water Boy or any of that kind of rubbish. Not to my taste.
But I really liked Punch Drunk Love... he was really very good in that! Surprised me! Maybe it's showing that he starting to mature as an actor? Or maybe not?
So for moment...Adam Sandler, Nay.

When he isn't doing his retarded voices, I like him. Wedding Singer, Happy Gilmore, Punch Drunk Love are all really good movies.

Everytime I see Little Nicky or Waterboy, I want to reach through my TV and punch him in the throat...
