Adam Sandler made two good films - Uncut Gems and Spanglish

Any others?

I liked The Waterboy. Kathy Bates should have at least been nominated for an Oscar.

R1 she was nominated that year... for PRIMARY COLORS.

He sucks balls! His little boy shtick was never funny which makes sense since he came from SNL. When the Sony Stuido was hacked by the Chinese and they released private conversation for the employees, I was not surprised they all thought he was a no talent hack.

Punch-Drunk Love.

Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison are funny.

Adam Sandler never made any good films. He made movies that made money. There's a difference.

Sandler is an unfunny juvenile goofball.

“The Wedding Singer” is the only film that Sandler was the creative force/producer on that’s any good or worth rewatching.

His performances in “Punch-Drunk Love,” “Funny People,” & “Uncut Gems” were all excellent, but I don’t think of those as “Adam Sandler films”.

Sandler has never made a good a film. And his two "serious" films show just what a limited actor he is. Both Punch Drunk Love and Uncut Gems (neither good movies IMO) could have been improved greatly with an actor in the role who actually could act. There's nothing wrong with staying in your lane and doing the thing that makes you money and keeps you popular.

50 First Dates was good. But Drew Barrymore was the real star. His acting was just typical mediocre Sandler. Any male could have done a better job. But it's still a good movie. Had an Interesting premise.

Drew's character has some condition where she cant remember what she did the day before. She then proceeds to date the same guy over and over like she just met him.

To the positive - he has employed many unemployable LA comedians. Yes, mostly his friends but at least he spreads the wealth.
