Happy Gilmore is probably my fave. What I love even more is the MP3's i got off the net. I think they were made before he hit it big. Hilarious stuff.

I can't stand Adam Sandler. He's a prime example of a truly one-dimensional actor.

His one good movie was The Wedding Singer.. but strong co-actors and a funny script is the backbone behind the movie, not him really.

Yeah, that was a really cute movie! I loved when he sang that song he wrote about his old girlfriend. The first half was all sweet because they were still together and the second half was after they broke up. "Somebody kill me, please!! I'm on my knees, pretty pretty please! Killlllll me! I want to diiiiiie! Put a bullet in my heeeeeeeeaaaaaddd!" LOL! Sandler's not a great actor, but he's still funny. There's always something sweet about his characters.

I can't stand Adam Sandler either. His Nickelodeon humor is what drove me away from SNL in the first place. All he does is make a bunch of stupid voices. I can see why his fanbase mostly consists of 10-year-olds.

I really don't like Adam Sandler either. I find him sort of obnoxious and I don't think that he has a very wide range when it comes to characters or acting of any sort, he just makes annoying high pitched voices. I think that there have been many talented people on SNL over the years, but I don't think that Adam Sandler is one of them.

He's hugely popular though, so he must be doing something right.

That's probably because his movies appeal to the younger audience, the "stupid but funny" movie genre. Sort of like some of Jim Carrey's movies, but Jim Carrey is a much, much better actor than Sandler will ever be.

I haven't seen A.M. yet, but I hope to soon. Loved Wedding Singer. And I can't really remember Madison.

That movie was too messed up, even for me. I can't even remember what happened in it. It was certainly a different type of role for him though.

I have this theory about weird movies like that. They always seem to get the great reviews and I think one of the reasons for it comes from the movie trailer music which promotes the movie. It seems like if there's a *really* strange type of song/music playing over the trailer, it's instantly a hit with reviewers. Do you remember the song they played in the trailer for this movie? I don't either, but I know it was weird because I remember thinking about it (yeah, no life over here). A lot of other movies do that too, but it's too early in the morning for me to come up with any examples. Besides, why continue to prove that I have no life?

My favorite types of trailers are the ones that don't give too much away. Those are few and far between these days though. I like the ones that lead you to think the movie is about one thing, and you're sure you've already figured it out, but then when you see it, it's completely different and surprises you. And movies with twisty endings!

I actually really did love that one and its music. "Look closer." LOL all I do is look closer, so that movie was made for me.

Normally, I'd agree with you. But I think that movie hit me at the exact right time in my life. I finally got my sh!% together and in a weird way, that movie helped inspire me to do it. (LOL and it had nothing to do with fantasizing about a teenage girl! Let's get that out of the way!) Has anyone here ever had something like that happen to them? Where something small and stupid, like a movie, just speaks to you?

Yeah, that was a great movie! My brother almost did the play in his school last year, but they already had their plays picked out for the year by the time they heard about this one. Excellent movie though, and I think it should be required viewing for everyone in HS. Not even just HS kids, but everyone.

Ben Foster was really good in that role too. I was so excited when he joined Six Feet Under as Claire's boyfriend this past season. LOL he was also the retarded kid, Eli, in Freaks and Geeks. So cute, that guy!
