Adam Sandler : Why does everyone hate Adam?

Why does everyone hate Adam?

How come nobody likes Adam anymore? I meanhis movies aren't as funny anymore but I still laugh while watching them. Let's be real though say Adam still did movies like Billy Madison as a 45 year old man.... Does anybody else see a problem with that? So please stop being mean mean to Adam Sandler
P.S. I will admit Jack and Jill was complete Sh!t but still give the guy a break.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

I don't hate him at all. In fact, he's one of my favorite comedians. His recent movies have not been nearly as good as some of his 90s/2000s movies.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

I'll never understand how anyone ever found this schmuck funny. Not funny in his movies, on SNL, not anywhere. He's the antidote to funny.

I could half-way stand him in _Reign Over Me_. He wasn't supposed to be funny. He was a seriously depressed man whose family had just died.

Private ratings so everything you're saying is meaningless.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

If you REALLy ant to know, watch this. http://redlettermedia.com/half-in-the-bag-jack-and-jill/


basically it claims Adam sandler is running schemes to makes the bloated budget bombs, all while lining the pockets of those attached by making terrible movies paid for b the dummies who laugh at the same fart joke over and over.


Hell, even the sony hack revealed the employees of sony (who fund his scams in the name of "art") are sick of being attached to his business practices.

jack and jill costing 80 million to make? come on....

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

According to the site celebritynetworth.com he's got a net worth of about $340 million and gets paid $20 million a movie. If you were b68 him, would you give a f#¢& at this point??


"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

I agree that has a lot to do with the backlash now. Not because it's correct. Rather because there are a lot of sheep who follow suit with whatever's trendy. Red Letter Media is popular among the geeky and snobby Internet curdmudgeon crowd. That review had a ridiculous amount of influence on groupthink opinion.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

so your saying jack and jill isnt lazy writing with an inflated budget? Regardless of what you think of RLM, thinking adam sandler is doing anything of value anymore is insane. Granted, its not the biggest issue in today's society, but this is IMDb, where we talk movies/tv and general entertainment. The fact you use "groupthink opinion" which is the same excuse people use on how adam sandler movies make any ticket sales in theater b68 s anymore, is quite hilarious.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

"lazy," "of value," etc.--those are subjective evaluations. One can't be correct or incorrect with terms like that.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

because hasn't put out a good movie in about a decade

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Why do you like him?
His movies suck and he's a dickhead.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Really? Everyone says that he is a great person except for you.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Who the hell is saying he's a great guy? He's racist : http://www.mediaite.com/online/native-american-explains-why-he-walked-off-adam-sandler-set-was-a-total-disgrace/ and he actually threw dodgeballs at the children during Billy Maddison. He's a class a prick and his brand of humor gets real tiresome after like 20 minutes. Punch-Drunk love is really good but that's 100% credit to PTA.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

*beep* that *beep*

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Its because he is adam sandler in every movie. His voice acting need loads of work. He needs to learn how to be characters, not just visually but by changing his voice as well (not just the sound but the style is super important). Every movie I hear the growl and the laugh, its getting old, very old...

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

People have tired from his toilet humor. And lately, his movies just haven't been good. He accepts very poor roles.

And then the movies that are half decent, The Cobbler for instance, are completely ignored because it's surrounded by poor films.

He's the Nicholas Cage of comedy. He should be more selective with his roles.

And maybe he should take a break away from humor for awhile and go the dramatic route. We all know he's capable of it.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Some of the worst films in history have high sales. All that means is people were gullible enough or interested to see how awful it actually was.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

I love Adam Sandler. I grew up with his movies and have been watching ever since Billy Madison. To me, he is an instant sell in watching a movie. Yes, he makes some garbage, but he's fun to watch. Kind of like a Family Guy episode. It's very simple humor. You don't have to think too much. When I want a thought-provoking film, I'll call on Christopher Nolan. When I want to see an amazing dramatic performance that will rock my world, I'll call on Edward Norton. When I want to see horror, sci-fi, etc. Understand, Adam Sandler is a comedian first and an actor second. Maybe not so much anymore, but he got into movies through stand-up and Saturday Night Live. He's a writer (wrote some of his best early works, like Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, etc.). And while he has taken some shots at dramatic roles, it should in no way be expected of him. Why can't people understand that he does comedy because comedy is what he knows. Maybe he doesn't care about winning an Oscar or delivering a heart-wrenching, earth-shattering dramatic performance. He's not Jimmy Stewart or Marlon Brando or Deniro or any actor of their calabre. He's a comic actor/writer. Accept him for what he is. If you don't like his movies, don't see them. Simple as that.

Side comments:
The Cobbler is probably one of his worst. I didn't laugh once. And it wasn't dramatic or thought-provoking, so don't try to defend it saying he was trying something different. After Jack & Jill and Bedtime Stories, it's probably his 3rd worst movie.

Nicolas Cage is God. In Cage We Trust.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

It's unfortunate you didn't laugh once during The Cobbler. I laughed plenty. It's certainly not his worst. And neither was Bedtime Stories. Jack and Jill is trash though along with Grown Ups 2, Funny People and That's My Boy.

In any case, Adam Sandler is indeed a comedian, one that people are growing tired of. He either needs to change his act or try something new if he wants a future respected career in Hollywood. That's just reality of the situation. It's not that he's not funny anymore, it's that his act is old. And it's not just his act, it's the entire toilet humor genre that's dying.

The great thing about people is that they can change. They can try new things. Do we really want Chrisopher Nolan to only ever try his hand at dark dramas? Of course not. Eclecticism sells.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Adam Sandler is definitely not the Adam Sandler of the '90s and not even 16d0 the Adam Sandler of the '00s, but I find his movies moderately amusing. Which parts of The Cobbler did you find funny? I thought Bedtime Stories was overly cheesy, like one of the big jokes was the hamster has huge eyes - not funny. Funny People was great. It was funny and had dramatic moments that brought something different to his films. Just stop watching the movie once he goes to Leslie Mann's house and you'll like it more. But that blame falls on Judd Apatow. His third act usually drags. Grown Ups 2 was alright and I thought That's My Boy was stupid but pretty funny.

And no, I agree that people should try something different. James Wan, for instance, is one of my favorite horror directors. I was upset he's not making any 'cause he's so good at it, but I'd like to see him try his hat in different genres to see if he has the stuff. But some people should stick with what they know. I support Sandler whenever he tries to take on dramatic roles, but will continue to enjoy his comedies.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

From his Opera Man on SNL to present day I never found him funny, inventive, talented or appealing. His movies from what I've seen are stupid, determinedly low brow, one-note and rely on audiences who find stupidity funny. What's not to like!

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

I grow up with adam and loved all his early movies but when that's my boy came out i realised that he lost his way and only came about the pay checks its sad but true i want adam to make a comeback he made a small cameo in chris rocks movie (Top Five) and i liked him in that i don't no to be honest but i still hope for the day for him to make a really good movie again

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Adam Sandler has a few issues going for him.. he has a very similar act in all his movies.. He says corny jokes, makes a few faces and that is pretty much all he does in 99% of his movies, except the few dramatic movies he's been making the last couple of years in an attempt to show he has some range as an actor.

Add on top the fact that he doesn't hide the fact he's Jewish and lots of people for one reason or another have nothing but ill feelings for Jewish people.

Personally I think his earlier movies were amazing, but his recent movies leave alot to be desired as his spiel has gotten old.

His movies aren't really bad, but they aren't really funny anymore either.. The worst thing about a comedy is not being funny..

Sandler's time in the sun has pretty much past him by. In all honesty he should more or less focus on being in ensemble movies where he isn't the main focus, but a part of a larger cast of stars..

That's just my two cent, not that anyone will care anyway lol...

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

I grew up a huge fan but 2004 was his last really good year. I think people dislike him because he went down the easy big paycheck road. Eddie Murphy is just as guilty.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

The only movie of his that I liked was Big Daddy.

Not a fan of Adam Sandler overall. I don't get the appeal...

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Adam Sandler is the only actor I know of who nobody hates, thus I don't see how it's possibly that 'everyone hates Adam'. It would be more accurate to ask, why does everyone love Adam, but I suppose he's just a very lovable, charismatic guy.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Anymore? When did people liked this guy?

If you love Jesus Lizard and are 100% proud of it, copy this and make it your signature!

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Adam Sandler is the only thing with/in/around movies I can't stand. After Water Boy (not saying that movie is funny, but it was okey) he has *beep* up every movie. Look at the movie Big Daddy, Mr Deeds and Click. Okey plot. Pretty okey script. But the acting of Sandler is making the entire movie suck.
He is always the same. Always making does stupid sounds when he gets mad. And always doing the same *beep* all the time.

Dont misunderstand me. I understand why he is doing it. To make money. But why the directors or producers will work with this *beep* actor. I will never know.

Im just think Jim Carrey doing Sandlers characters. It wood have helped all of the films. Or Eddie Murphy. Maybe Chris Rock. Everyone is better then him. Worst actor in the historie of movie making. probably the most terrible actor from teater as well.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Yah, as others pointed out, he's paid a lot in films that bombed.

Why do I hate him? Cuz I've seen 3 of his movies, and that's 3 reasons to hate him... Oh wait, I don't hate Adam. I just hate the movies, and the people involved in them, and the people acting in them, and the people producing them.... Oh yeah, I DO HATE HIM!!!

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Because he's not funny, he's just slimy and disgusting.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

Good movies (Big Daddy etc.) but Adam Sandler is a bad actor. He is always the same and not funny. Totally agreed. I don't hate him but he ruins all the movies which star him.

Re: Why does everyone hate Adam?

I hate him because he's a loser POS and he ain't funny
