Creator / Adam Sandler

1) During his career Adam Sandler has appeared in 32 movies.
2) 2 of them were good.
3) Unfortunately
Punch-Drunk Love and Reign Over Me did not contain titties or Rob Schneider so nobody went to see them.

Adam Richard Sandler (September 9, 1966-) is an American comedian and actor.

After several years as a Saturday Night Live writer and cast member (from 1990 to 1995note ), 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 ventured into more dramatic territory.

His characters usually fall under the Jerk with a Heart of Gold, but also with a healthy dose of Man Child with a serious need to grow up. Realizing that he can only take that role so far, he has sought to expand his range into a couple of dramas. Otherwise he takes much of the Deadpan Snarker behavior but adds some more complex motivation behind it.

Responsible for Happy Madison Productions, and often plays a music fan. Expect '70s and '80s music (like Led Zeppelin) to be not only part of the soundtrack, but 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?!")

Enjoys something of a reputation as "one of the nicest celebrities in Real Life".
