Critical reception not allowed.
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.]]''

There is no more or less. It's either an example or it's not. It's Names The Same not Names The Sorta Similar Also They Are Physically Similar And Have Similar Backgrounds.
* 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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:
* 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.

* ''Film/PunchDrunkLove'' (2002) - His first (arguably) straight drama.

Yeah, let's not go there
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Many note how Sandler often [[http://www.rogerebert.com/scanners/adam-sandlers-house-of-cruelty takes this trope too far]]. His films frequently insult anyone who isn't him ([[UnfortunateImplications A white, rich, able-bodied straight man.]]) in an almost bullying manner.
