Responsible for Happy Madison Productions, and often plays a music fan. Expect '70s and '80s music (like Music/LedZeppelin) to be not only part of the soundtrack, but [[WaxingLyrical part of the spoken dialog in some way, shape or form]]. Also expect Sandler's character to appear at least once wearing sports or college memorabilia (t-shirts, hats, etc.) with a New York or New England connection. Also expect blatant and shameless product placement, to the point that it's so absurdly exaggerated it's sometimes actually funny ("WHERE'S MY SNAK-PAK?!")

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In virtually all of Sandler's early roles, his characters were these. Then once ''Film/TheWeddingSinger'' was made most of his characters were straight-up nice guys.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: Adam Sandler seems to be a nice, sweet, friendly person in real life who many people seem to love working with.

* ''The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)'' (2017) - another dramedy. His performance has been acclaimed to the point that even Oscar buzz is being thrown around.

Added DiffLines:

* FirstWorldProblems: A common observation about his more recent films, especially ''Film/GrownUps'' and ''Film/{{Pixels}}'', is that his characters tend to be, at their very worst, PotteryBarnPoor, and are often exceptionally well-off, without any events in the film putting their lifestyle at risk. More cynical viewers have suggested it's because he doesn't want to play someone worse-off than himself.

After several years as a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' writer and cast member (from 1990 to 1995[[note]]That's from the middle of season 16 to the end of season 20. During those years, he, along with Rob Schneider, David Spade, and Chris Farley, were known as "The Bad Boys of SNL" due to their penchant for gross, crass humor, which a lot of critics hated about ''Saturday Night Live'' during the early to mid-1990s[[/note]]), he went on to star in several Hollywood feature films that grossed over 4.8 billion USD at the worldwide box office and remains as a major box office draw. He is best known for his comedic roles, though he has [[TomHanksSyndrome ventured into more dramatic territory]].

* TheCameo: In quite a few of his films, especially from the late '90s and early '00s, there is often a scene toward the end in which Rob Schneider stands up out of a crowd and shouts "You can do it!" in a vaguely foreign accent. It first appeared in ''Film/TheWaterboy''. In at least one Rob Schneider film, Sandler returns the favor, appearing dressed as the same and shouting "You can do it!" to Schneider's character.
