* UglyGuyHotWife: A recurring theme in his movies is that his characters end up with women who are way out of his league. While his first two movies as a lead, ''Billy Madison'' and ''Happy Gilmore'', played this straight, subsequent films tried to subvert it in different ways (''Little Nicky'' had Patricia Arquette, but in the film she was made to look as much as HollywoodHomely as possible, and ''Mr. Deeds'' had Winona Ryder, but it turns out that she's a cutthroat tabloid news reporter who poses as a sweet, innocent girl-next-door type in order to get close to Sandler's character, only to fall for real for him), before playing it straight again from ''Click'' onwards (though in the meantime, Marisa Tomei played his girlfriend in ''Anger Management''), in which his character's wife is played by Kate Beckinsale and her gorgeous looks are complimented by several characters, before having Salma Hayek as his wife in the ''Grown-Ups'' movies.

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 US$100 million at the 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]].

* WishFulfillment: [[WebVideo/HalfInTheBag Many]] [[Creator/NathanRabin critics]] note how his films tend to be this. He often plays a schlubby guy who ends up with [[UglyGuyHotWife a hot girl who's several years his junior]], is rich, hangs out with his friends and various athletes and goes on expensive vacations to various countries. And in his earlier films, he often played the friendly schmo who would give obvious bullies their just deserts (and steal their hot girlfriends).
