He gets a lot of flak for his movies but most of his movies have superhits at box office

Even the critically panned Jack and Jill crossed 150 million dollars

He doesn't do franchises
His movies run solely on his star power

I enjoy his films, With the exception of Jack and Jill. He has a likeable Charisma to him, And CAN act quite well as evidenced by Punch drunk love.

And he's from Brooklyn!

Some are good, like Spanglish and even Billy Madison. Some are awful like Grown Ups and Jack & Jill.

I'm kind of indifferent. I liked "Mr Deeds" until I saw the original, "Mr. Deeds Goes To Town". After that the remake seemed kind of mediocre to me.

I like most of his movies.I think he its a pretty good actor. He's really funny in his movies. I haven't seen all of his movies but a lot of them though and all of the movies i have seen were good.

He's not even funny. His voice alone makes me want to drill a hole in my head and let my brains slide right out.

Adam Sandler plays Adam Sandler. He's purveyed as the funny all-American boy next door. He is NOT funny and he misses the mark.

I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hated Spanglish but I kind of like Adan Sandler. The one about the two firemen was funny. I don't watch a lot comedy.
