- Critic-Proof: A lot of their films have garnered negative critical reception, but have made millions at the box office. However, with Adam Sandler's now-poor reputation, this is being averted, with some films outright bombing.
- Snark Bait: A majority of the films they make have fallen into this territory due to their predictable plots, use of cheap humor (including Toilet Humor), loads of Product Placement, tending to make money in spite of their negative critical reception and for the highly-extravagant filming locations of many of the films like Grown Ups and Just Go With It (leading many to suspect that the movies are made purely as an excuse for Adam Sandler and his friends to go on vacation). The most notable examples include Pixels (which fell into this territory the moment it was announced), as well as The Master of Disguise, Jack and Jill, Bucky Larson Born To Be A Star and That's My Boy, which are considered to be some of the worst films ever made, and Grown Ups 2, whose box office victory over the beloved Pacific Rim has only increased the Internet's hatred for Adam Sandler and his fans.
