But saludos to his efforts for the troops.

Sorry guys, I thought Happy Gilmore and The Waterboy were hilarious....but a lot of his other stuff has stunk.

He was pretty funny when he wacked out in the "Wedding Singer".

50 First Dates wasn't bad either and I thought The Longest Yard was much better that I expected. Still like the original better.

I enjoyed Punch Drunk Love, I know I am an odd man out here, but it was a quirky dark comedy that I found enjoyable.

I liked Punch Drunk Love, Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer.

The others I've seen have been pretty bad though.

I commend him on his support for the troops and the Israeli children.

(Playstations still seems like an odd choice to me however.)

I've heard he's a Republican.

As for the Playstations, Israeli kids need some respite from all the fighting. I have no problem with it.

Ditto that, it's hard to take the darkness that was in Burt's original and turn it into a real comedy. The original was not a comedy at all IMHO. And a great movie.

I've heard he and Vince Vaughn are both closet Republican's.. (are there any other kind in Hollywood?)

He's still not very funny though, IMO. I loved him in Paul Anderson's movie "Punch Drunk Love".

I like a lot more of his films than I dislike. I thought Deeds was hilarious, especially when he met up with John McEnroe.

Funny, Deeds was the one that I liked the least. But it sold tickets so I'm sure alot of people liked it as well.

Happy Gilmore was hilarious. It's one of the few movies I own. Also, the only one by Sandler I've seen.

Glad he's doing some nice things.

I thought Anger Management was very funny. Sandler kind of played the straight man in that one.

You're not so odd. 'Punch Drunk Love' was a surprising Sandler movie, in that it was good--but then, Emily Watson is always good. And, well, okay, I admit it, I count 'Waterboy' as a guilty pleasure.

'Foosball is of the debbil1!' cracks me up every time.

I've heard he and Vince Vaughn are both closet Republican's.

In the DVD of Wedding Crashers, if you turn on the commentary where Vaughn and Wilson are talking through the movie, Vaughn expresses his admiration for McCrazy during the Walken's daughter wedding scene (McCrazy has a cameo).

I guess that's better han being a flaming lib...

I liked Anger Management just because I can relate to how he got treated on the plane. It reminded me of when I almost got into it with a stewardess who was PMS'ing something fierce.

Anger Managment is hilarious.

Dave Buznik: Geez, without slippy-flippy's or angry masterbating I don't see how that's possible.

Dr. Buddy Rydell: Sarcasm is anger's ugly cousin... from now on, unacceptable.

The Wedding Singer is cute, too.

Adam Sandler is more Jewish than Hollywood, so I'd like to thank him for stepping up to the plate at a time when being true to yourself is verboten in that industry.

I really liked Punch Drunk Love too, but I will admit to actually being an Adam Sandler fan, especially when he picks up a guitar.

Me, too! A 'young' conservative celebrity in my own age group - almost an anomaly, but hopefully an inspiration to others. To me, certainly.

He's still not funny and his movies are horrible

I disagree. I think he is funny and smart and I love the 'love story movie with happy ending' he often does. Loved 'Wedding Singer', '50 First Dates', 'Big Daddy'. I don't like all though. For example, 'Billy Madison'? Ugh.

I've heard he and Vince Vaughn are both closet Republican's.. (are there any other kind in Hollywood?)

I think there might a little secret cabal of former "SNL" member Libertarian/Republicans in Lalaland. Dennis Miller got Adam Sandler onto "SNL" and was his champion on the show. Miller also went to bat for Bob Dole fan/Clinton basher Norm MacDonald, who was fired for being too politically incorrect (also too funny for "SNL"). Rob Schneider appears in all of Sandler's movies and Sandler produces his, and Schneider has gone to Iraq, volunteered to appear on "The Tonight Show" on a holiday when the audience was all troops, and showed photos of himself holding a rifle in Iraq and putting his feet up on Saddam's palace coffee table. I've also noticed that Dennis Miller's pal Dana Carvey has said some hilariously sharp things about Clinton and the war on terror. Maybe this tiny clique is entirely responsible for the average IQ in Hollywood being higher than that of a house plant.

He's a regular American who made it big in Hollyweirdo...no surprise....he supports what we support. He's most likely a closet conservative.

Punch Drunk Love was BRILLIANT. 50 First Dates and Anger Management were great too. The only film I don't like of his is The Water Boy.

Sandler is an acquired taste. Either people love him or hate him, I've found.

The only problem with the Hanukkah song is that Rod Carew never actually converted to Judaism. He married a Jewish girl and they are raising Jewish children, but he never converted.

I am an entertainment junkie. I love tv sitcoms, movies, and, yes even Desperate Housewives, and the occasional soap that I DVR.

Whew, that said, glad to hear that Sandler, (although he sometimes grates on my nerves ala Jim Carrey) is supporting our troops. HE, as well as the few others in the Hollywood community who love and respect our country, will get my hard earned dollars at the box office. I refuse to give my money to movie stars, who will in turn give said money right back to liberal, anti-American causes.

BTW, glad to hear Vince Vaughn (who this old broad thinks is a hottie) is a closet Republican....he needs to come out of there, as do others! They might be surprised at how their fanbase would increase from the "silent majority" in our country.

Sandlers also from New Hampshire...which used to be a republican state. He has many terrific movies on his CV...not all appeal to everyone. PUnch drunk love, Spanglish and fifty first dates are my favorite ones.

Since the children are being raised Jewish, I can't see where there'd be a problem. If the situation was reversed, and it was Carew himself who was Jewish and his wife who wasn't, then his parents would probably not be happy because then, the only way the kids could be raised Jewish would be if she converted. Jewish law only accepts children as Jewish if their mother is.

Your comment about his movies is generally true, but "50 First Dates" was genuinely funny (and fairly clean). My wife loved it.

I saw Transporter 2 last night. It was great...and Adam Sandler wasn't innit. But I appreciate his supporting this country and not the terrorists.
