His earlier stuff was good, like Big Daddy, Happy Gilmore, and The Wedding Singer. But lately, he's been doing worse, and quickly.

He's not, but he's a pretty funny guy, or at least, he used to be.

Punch-Drunk love is the only Adam Sandler movie made in the 21st century that deserves to be watched. The rest is trash and I, along with a ton of people, am tired of him just teaming up with his buddies to churn out shitty movies with razor thin plots.

What about Click, 8 Crazy Nights or Mr. Deeds? No?

Reign Over Me was pretty good as well.

No, he was funny in the 1990s to around mid-2000s, but it's clear he's running out of ideas and is kinda winging it. Some of his latest vehicles is what you would expect from his sidekick, Rob Schneider.

Adam Sandler is a capable actor who could do much better if he chooses to, but in the end that's not where the money is. Up to recently, most of the money came from low brow comedy which tells you something.

I liked his earlier works and people can't say "Oh, you're just getting older" because that's just bullcrap. For a lazy example, "Happy Gilmore" > "Jack and Jill", "That's My Boy" and "You Don't Mess With The Zohan"

The last one was promising but...

Comedy as a whole? Nope. He's okay for comedy movies, but I can't remember the last time I actually saw a good comedy movie.

I find it ridiculous to call any artist or artform the "pinnacle" of anything.

It's not hard to qualify certain criteria with which to call something meritorious, but the process of qualification is really, in lots of ways, an opinionation.

Well, you have to admit that at least part of the reason you like his older movies is that it was funnier when you were younger. If you still find it funny today, that's because it makes you nostalgic. I find that if I were a kid when his newer stuff came out, I might actually like it more. I went ahead and watched the same old Sandler movies when I got older, and they weren't as funny as I remembered. They also stink of the musical scores and general feel of 90's comedy movies. A Sandler movie was generally always just the ADAM SANDLER show. Much like they did with Jim Carrey.

Not really, when it comes to Happy Gilmore, I can still enjoy it as much as I used to, as well as the remake of Mr. Deeds. Little Nicky was messed up so that one can fit the case. I think his last good movie was Click, after that it started to drop off at a moderate pace.

Being a Briton... how about no. I used to think Stephen Fry, but Morecambe and Wise and George Formby make it into the list of funny for me.

Adam sandler is the pinnacle of comedy in the same way that roy "chubby" brown is the pinnacle of good taste.
that is, they are both nowhere near.

my favourite comedian is Russell Howard. both my girlfriend and i have a bit of a crush on him.

Response to Is Adam Sandler pinnacle of comedy? 2014-01-11 09:03:00


If you mean that he is funny, then yeah :)
He's very funny in movies, i like Happy Gilmore the best :D

Almost all of his recent movies have been bad. The only good comedy he made in the last ten years was probably "50 First Dates" and even that has a spare amount of haters. As the owner of Happy Madison Studios, it's hard to praise him. That being said, I did like "Funny People". He probably is better as a serious actor.

Click was a great movie, and I cried twice the first time I watched it, but the ending just COMPLETELY killed it. Personally, it would have been better if he had to live with the consequences he made for himself. Although it wasn't a complete cop out, as there was some other stuff that happened after he woke up, it still somewhat pissed me off.

Reign Over Me was pretty good as well.

Still haven't seen that or Punch Drunk Love. I saw Spanglish a while back, but can't remember much anymore except that I liked Cloris Leachman in it.

Yeah, he actually does show a bit of potential from what I've seen, which a lot of people probably don't realize.

I liked his earlier works and people can't say "Oh, you're just getting older" because that's just bullcrap.

Yeah, Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, Airheads, Big Daddy, Waterboy. All pretty good.

I've seen that. I'd much rather watch Click than that.

I love Stephen Fry. A Bit of Fry and Laurie was great and I still watch QI online. I still haven't watched Jeeves and Wooster.

He obviously had talent early on his career. That is undeniable. The last decade has all been about money.

Yeah, my brother's a big fan of that movie. He seems to have mostly forgotten about it now and probably isn't much of an Adam Sandler fan, like most of us.
