Happy Gilmore was the best thing Sandler was ever a part of.

I'm not so sure. I'd almost always take his work as the blue haired straight man in Shakes The Clown over Happy Gilmore.

I am aware that I am in a vast minority here but Funny People (while long) had some pretty good insights into the narcissistic comic mind.

I know what you mean, but I'd just swap "worthiness" with "laziness" there. Sandler's comedy is pure lazy, lazy comedy.
It's like the youtube video of the fat woman wearing sweatpants and high heels walking on the pier with an ice cream cone and one heel breaks and she falls down and her face goes right into the ice cream and she drags her fat child down with her and a seagull comes and starts eating the ice cream and it shits on her head as it flies off and they're both yelling and everyone's laughing and it's a funny youtube clip.
That's pretty much how I see Sandler films; laughing at something because it's supposed to be funny, but without any context. That joke is made, move on to the donkey getting hit in the nuts by a stray baseball. It's deliberately underestimating an audience, but the audience hasn't much else to see in the cinema that weekend. I'll admit to chuckling a bit at Happy Gilmore, but thinking back on it was the least mean-spirited film he's made.
Why am I even thinking about this guy right now jesus

Watched his Netflix movie The Ridiculous 6 earlier.
I had to stop it halfway through and go for a two hour long walk to forget what I had seen only to pick up in the middle of it to see Vanilla Ice playing Mark Twain.

I call bullshit.

It's a movie starring Adam Sandler = it is an Adam Sandler movie.

Loved PDL. I think it's a terrific film, and he gave a terrific performance. I am also a 40 year old man who still laughs every time I so much as think about "At a Medium Pace." I liked Billy Madison okay when I saw it 20 years ago.

Crap. I don't even waffle because of the above, because I probably wouldn't find. BM as funny now, PDL was a one-off anomaly, and "At a Medium Pace" is a song, and not within the scope of this C/NC.

I think he probably has some ability as an actor, that's the sad thing. But I don't know that he's particularly bright, and he's in charge.

Fuck this guy.

Red Letter Media do a take down that basically accuses him of being a fraud and a shyster which I agree with.

And Punch Drunk Love is a fucking awful movie, one that seem to be the go to film for anyone saying "He's done one good film..." He plays the same retard manchild he plays in 99% of all of his movies. I couldn't even finish it and had only started watching it because it was supposed to be his "only good performance".

Fuck this guy.

Also, as well as being not too bright, he apparently has the artistic sensibilities of a ten-year-old, including the notion that being gay is just hee-larious.

Crap.

Caveat: REIGN OVER ME.

His 'funny' films aren't funny. When I saw him do a straight role in Reign Over Me I actually gained some respect for him, I thought he was a decent actor. Which makes it all the more sad that he just reverted to his crap comedy afterwards.

Of Sony's top 50 movies from 2000 to 2016, more than two-thirds were "star vehicles," in which the talent involved was as big as or bigger than the movie title or the franchise. More than one-third came from just two people: Will Smith and Adam Sandler. Movies they starred in or produced grossed $3.7 billion from 2000 to 2015, generating 20 percent of Sony Pictures' domestic gross and 23 percent of its profits. No other studio was as reliant on just two actors. Their rise and fall illustrate what has happened to movie stars in Hollywood.
