Adam Sandler has had a polarizing career. He has starred in a variety of comedies, but he also has a reputation for product placement.
Sandler is a comedian who grew up in New York and moved to New Hampshire when he was young. In 1990, he joined "Saturday Night Live" as a writer. While there, he was able to work with comedians like Dennis Miller and Bob Newhart.
After leaving SNL, Sandler made movies with his friends. These include the 1995 film Billy Madison, which grossed over $26 million worldwide. Then, he declined a role in Michael Mann's Collateral.
Besides his comedy, Sandler has a reputation for being sensitive. Many of his movies focus on his relationship with his family. They are also often about his Jewish heritage.
It's clear that Sandler has a unique take on love and romance. His stories tend to be less about falling in love and more about making it work.
However, he has not been able to reach the highest levels of critical acclaim. He's received only two higher than 50 percent reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
Despite this, Sandler has become an executive producer on all his movies since The Waterboy. Since then, he's starred in 18 films that have grossed more than $100 million internationally.
Although he's had an impressive career, critics have been less enthusiastic about his work. In fact, he has been nominated for the Worst Actor in the Razzies 11 times.
