* DyeingForYourArt: While much of [[Film/YouDontMessWithTheZohan Zohan's]] [[LeParkour physical prowess]] was the result of stuntmen and serious suspension of disbelief, Sandler got into the best shape of his life (with a full-on six pack and HeroicBuild) to play the Israeli SuperSoldier.



* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: A particularly well-known example. He often plays {{Jerkass}} characters but in RealLife he's generally seen as a likable and fun guy.
* NoBudget: Subverted with his comedies which would have budgets around $80 million despite showing otherwise. Allegedly this is because he only uses around 5-10 million of that budget to actually make the movie - The rest he gives to his friends and singlehandedly makes them rich.
* OldShame: He was NOT in ''Film/GoingOverboard''. At least, that's what his official website said.
* PlayingWithCharacterType: ''Film/PunchDrunkLove'' and ''Film/{{Click}}''. More information on the trope page.



* ProductionPosse: The films he makes at Happy Madison can have a lower cast/crew turnaround than a [[Creator/TheCoenBrothers Coen Brothers]] movie. For instance, he often works with director Dennis Dugan and Peter Segal and actors Creator/DavidSpade, Rob Schneider, Nick Swardson, Creator/ChrisRock, Kevin James, Creator/ChrisFarley (while he was alive), Creator/SteveBuscemi, Kevin Nealon, and Tim Meadows.
** Also if you ever see Peter Dante, Allen Covert and Jonathan Loughran, especially the two former, you can bet the film is a Happy Madison Production.

* ManChild: His entire career is built on this trope, most notably ''BillyMadison.''
** [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in some of his other roles. In ''BigDaddy'', for example, he portrays a character who [[BrilliantButLazy actually has the mind of an adult but is extremely lazy and irresponsible]].

In 2012, he earned the distinct "honor" of creating a film that swept the 2011 [[UsefulNotes/GoldenRaspberryAward Razzie Awards]] ceremony: 2011's ''Film/JackAndJill'' was the first film in the show's history to "win" all twelve categories.

3) Unfortunately ''Film/PunchDrunkLove'' and ''Film/ReignOverMe'' did not contain titties or Rob Schneider so [[ViewersAreMorons nobody went to see them.]]''

* NamesTheSame: More or less with Andy Samberg. Both were on ''SNL'' (and considered fan-favorite cast members, though Sandler's status as a fan-favorite cast member is divided), both are Jewish, both have curly black hair, both have a sense of humor that mixes the bizarre with the juvenile, and both have left ''SNL'' to do movies (though Andy Samberg left on his own accord; Adam Sandler was fired due to NBC forcing Lorne Michaels to revamp ''SNL'' or face cancellation).
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t2Kvwe_KSw The Whitest Kids U Know SNL intro sketch]] starts with both of their names... then proceeds into a series of fake names that are similar to them.
