Many people don't like or appreciate Adam Sandler's brand of comedy, but I give him a lot of credit for his work. Granted, the past 10 years have been rough for him hit-wise, but he knows how to make people laugh, that's for sure.
He may not be making the same quality comedies he made in the late '80s and early '90s, but every once in a while he sneaks a good one in there, like "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry." He also tried his hand at serious films for a little bit, but for a goofball like Sandler, it's really best to stick to what you know is successful. That being said, he has had some seriously awful movies like "Jack and Jill," where he played a man and his sister; who decided that was a go?
Sandler's works have been all over the place the past 10 or so years, but "Grown Ups 2" looks like it could be amusing. I don't condone making sequels of movies that weren't awesome in the first place, but with Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and Chris Rock, what could go wrong? Probably everything, but it will at least be amusing watching the possible train wreck. So in honor of the release of "Grown Ups 2" I started thinking about my favorite Sandler films, which may seem easy, but I went back and forth a lot before deciding on this list. I almost wish I had made this a top seven list, so I could fit the other two films that didn't make it. As such, I am sure people will be mad I didn't include something, so I look forward to hearing what those of you who disagree have to say.
