The first film of Adam Sandler in over a decade is just as good as the second, which came two years later. It’s just as funny and as thought-provoking. But this time around, Sandler doesn’t try to fool you. He presents his subject matter with the natural touch of an artist wanting to share his work with the public. No pretense, no dramatics. Just a simple story about two friends who fall in love and then have to adjust their lives after getting married.
I’m sure that Adam Sandler fans will enjoy this movie, but those who don’t are missing out on a lot. This is a great example of how movie memorabilia should be made available to the general public. There aren’t any promotional gimmicks or advertising involved. There’s no “here’s a thing that will make you money” behind the scenes. If you like movies, you’ll like Adam Sandler’s latest. If you don’t, at least you can say you know the one true fan of movies who have seen every movie he’s ever made.
One thing about movie memorabilia is that it can become valuable over time. I don’t mean to scare you off, because I think it’s a great idea. However, there are some rules that you need to follow when purchasing these pieces. First of all, don’t pay too much for them. I don’t mean value should be less than your net worth, but when I buy a diamond ring, I want to know that the cost will stay profitable for the years to come, not to become something that’s quickly forgotten.
While Adam Sandler may be no match for the late Michael Douglas in terms of box office successes, he was still a top-notch actor throughout the 90s. His films consistently offered fresh new insights into the way we think and act. He also had a tendency to bring funny elements to his roles, whether he was playing a wacky movie professor or a sensitive cartoon character. You can get similar value out of all of his films, which is why I feel it’s unfair to put him on a level with the masters like George Clooney and Bill Murray. His net worth will be higher as time goes on, but right now, he’s on par with the very best.
One of the things that will separate Adam from the best of the bunch is how many of his films have excellent opening lines. It’s rare to find a film with a perfect opening line, but nearly every one of Sandler’s films has at least one great one. In fact, I count myself as a big fan of just about his films. Of course, this all depends on how much time you want to spend reviewing movie memorabilia. Each film is different and each list of his greatest works will be different, but there are two particular films that I consider his finest.
The first is Mulan, which is his second-best film. This isn’t only my favorite film, but it’s also a fantastic example of how a great actor can take an underappreciated role and turn it into something great. Because Mulan is a low-budget film, Sandler didn’t have the financial freedom to hire top talent. He instead relied on a number of people who did their work on the cheap and turned it into an amazing film, one that nearly every one of his fans will love.
The second is The Waterboy, which is another great movie starring Adam Sandler. Like Mulan, The Waterboy was a low-budget film that made great use of true actors. The film managed to top the box office for three weeks in a row, enabling Sandler to double his net worth from the movie alone. I would put the value of The Waterboy above almost all of Sandler’s movies. It just has that special something that makes it more special than the other movies of its genre.
The third and final on the list of the greatest Adam Sandler films are Big and Tall, and The Waterboy. In each of these films, Sandler plays characters that aren’t quite so clueless about the world they live in, like in Big and Tall. While the acting is not as great as some of the other movies of the 80s, they still make great examples of what an amazing actor could do with a truly good role, and his fans will always be able to point to films like Big and Tall as an example of what great movies with great stars should look like.
