Adam Sandler’s latest movie That’s My Boy hits DVD shelves today and it got me thinking that it was about time we did an Adam Sandler top 10. It’s easy to poke fun at some of his recently movies but I am a rather big fan of his work and thought I’d compile a list of my favourite Sandler movies, many of which I know you’ll love too.
That’s My Boy is released on DVD and Blu-ray today (synopsis below) so have a look at the list below and let me know what you think.
While still in his teens, Donny (Adam Sandler) fathered a son, Todd (Andy Samberg), and raised him as a single parent up until Todd’s 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd’s world comes crashing down on the eve of his wedding when an uninvited Donny suddenly shows up. Trying desperately to reconnect with his son, Donny is now forced to deal with the repercussions of his bad parenting skills.
This is obviously open to debate so please feel free to have that debate in the comments section below. Tell us what we missed and why you either agree or disagree with our final 10.
10) Click (2006)
Click gives Sandler a very different role to many of his other movies to engage with. As a father and workaholic architect, he struggles to find his work-life balance, when happenstance unites him with Christopher Walken’s character who gives him a magical remote control which allows him to pause, rewind or fast forward real life. All is going along nicely until various mishaps occur, and this becomes one of Sandlers more emotional films, actually becoming quite sad and a little depressing.
Fabulous performances from, Sandler, Beckinsale and Hasselholf means that this movie strikes the balace between happiness and sadness, with multiple hilarious moments cleverly woven together with extremely sad ones. Many people don’t like this movie bit I think it is fabulous.
A cheeky highlight is when Sandler pauses time, stands there and farts in the face of the Hoff, re-starts time and Hasselhoff is engulfed! A Showcase of brilliant toilet-humour: very silly but extremely fun!
