This week I'm doing something a little bit different. I picked a question from the picture round! It was a picture of Adam Sandler! I think everyone got it right because his image is burned into our brains at birth. For me, Adam Sandler brings up a more philosophical question: why does everyone hate Adam Sandler?
I began my search with a quick google search that revealed many others are confused as well. There were a ton of Yahoo Answers and odd websites all asking the question. Many were confused, how could you hate the Wedding Singer?
Many critiques on Adam focus on how he is old news, lazy, one-dimensional, and plays the same role over and over and over again. I kept reading different articles with the same complaints but halfway through I realized they were all about different movies. Every review is different but every review is the same.
Sony hates Adam. Actors in his movies hate him because he's racist and he's sexist. He's coming to netflix and we all hate that. His latest movies have flopped so hard I have never even heard of them (Blended? The Cobbler?). His latest film, Pixels flopped as well and according to a critic is "Much like the worst arcade games from the era that inspired it, Pixels has little replay value and is hardly worth a quarter." Ouch! Ouch!
I'll be honest, I hate the guy. Lots of people hate him, really. Why does he keep making movies? Why on earth would you hire this guy? In reality, Sandler is just laughing at the critics all the way to the bank. People still love him and his movies that do terrible still succeed somehow (mostly through DVD sales! ha!). Anyways I'm sure he seems like a good guy.
See y'all around kids. If you want more movie related information, please look into why the new Stonewall movie is terrible.
