    Any Adam Sandler film that isn't Wedding Singer, Waterboy or Happy Gilmore. I like The Wedding Singer because it's cheesy fun, Waterboy because it's easy to make fun of, and Happy Gilmore because Bob Barker beats the s*** out of Sandler.

    Uhhh....Reign Over Me?

    Maybe it wasn't exactly your thing, but it wasn't so campy terribad like the absolute rest of Sandler's filmography.

    Never saw it. Maybe I should... it should be better than Spanglish.

    Star Wars, Episode 1. This guy pretty much nails it.

    And Sandler was awesome in the ending of Click. One of the saddest comedies I've ever seen. (I think we've discussed this one before)

    I misunderstood the point of this thread so Titanic II is the only one on my list that fits but the other ones are bad but in a great way.

    It can either be good-bad or bad.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a flawed movie, but it's so drastically different from anything else Sandler has ever done (for reference, Tom Cruise was attached to play his role until just before production began), and it's...well, it's not exactly the sort of movie one can or should enjoy, per se, but it's artistically significant.

    I don't get the hate around Spanglish, sure it wasn't [i]excellent/i] but it delivered what it wanted to do. Pretty typical James Brooks, but it's not Brooks best affair either, that would probably be How Do You Know or Broadcast News.

    I dislike it because it was dull, and the "humor" didn't work for me. I personally didn't get it at all. Good to see a film with prominent Hispanics that isn't borderline racist, though.

    I'm pretty sure most of the Spanglish hate comes from people expecting it to be an Adam Sandler movie. They were expecting Waterboy and got a drama instead.

    Personally I enjoyed it.

    Adam Sandler is a better actor when doing drama. I find him a juvenile mediocre comedian, honestly.

    Will Ferrell proved to me he's the same kind of actor.

    I thought Grown Ups was pretty good too. Sure not A+ but it wasn't a bad movie.

    I never said that Spanglish was a horrible movie. I just found it very "meh."

    It's not his worst film for sure.

    That'd be Jack & Jill.

    Im not sure anyone here is more into immature humor than me and even I thought that movie was an extreme pile of garbage

    See now, I really liked Little Nicky. I loved Rodney Dangerfield as his grand father.

    I agree that Sandler does drama better. Never saw that Will Ferrell movie but I remember seeing the trailer before. I would give a shot.

    Funny People
    The Wedding Singer

    Bulletproof
    The Longest Yard
    Big Daddy
    Airheads
    50 First Dates
    Bedtime Stories
    Click
    Mr. Deeds
    Grown Ups
    Happy Gilmore

    I'm estimating That's My Boy being in the red and Hotel Translyvania being in the yellow or lower green.

    Eh, I guess I just didn't "get" Spanglish if it's that great a film. I just didn't enjoy it as an audience member. I've seen much worse, though.
  • edited June 2012
    I want to see Funny People. It has like all my favorite comedians in it but I've heard that it's not very good.

    Ah, Airheads was great. I liked Sandler's role in that one probably because it was a supporting one.

    Structurally it's pretty decent, if above yellow (average/mediocre) for me. Hill plays the same thing he usually does and it's mostly him and Sandler together. I liked it, but I don't plan on watching it again.

    Let's change subject. This is a bad movie thread, after all.

    I'm pretty sure Sandra Bullock's worst movie is All About Steve. It totally beats Speed 2 due to her being the creepiest thing on the planet.

    I went into it literally not knowing a thing about it. Thought it was a comedy(you know since it has the word funny in the title) but was dissapointed when it wasnt. That being said its 'meh' at best
