So the rules here that apply in all my other games apply here; 2 up votes and 2 downvotes per person per day. If a film hits 0 points, it's gone for good. Last film standing, or the film with the most points wins! There are rules, however, as to the nature of the films I chose to select:

1. They all have to star Adam Sandler in the lead or one of the leading roles (therefore, Airheads counts).

2. They have to be written, produced, and/or executive produced by Adam Sandler as well. The general rule of thumb here is that if it were produced and/or distributed by Happy Madison, then it applies.

3. They all have to carry with them recurring traits prevalent in films like Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore. Therefore, no shortcuts like Punch-Drunk Love or Spanglish.

Now with that said, here are the contending films in order from earliest film to his most recent. I will add additional films as they come should they come by the time the game ends:

Airheads - 10
Billy Madison - 10

Q,

Heh, of all these horrible, horrible movies, the one I did get a few laughs from was 'Happy Gilmore'. But that was only later when I saw it on TV. When it first came out in theaters, I thought it was as horrible as any. (That's right -- there's a Sandler movie I've seen TWICE!)
It was my first Adam Sandler movie. Little did I know, it was probably his best, other than 'Spanglish'. Not too bad, considering. . . .

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 22, 2012 12:29:45 AM PDT
It was my first as well. My dad drug me to the theater, believe it or not. Over time, I loved it more and more.

We all have are "First Sandler" stories, and for most it's a cause for shame and regret. Ah, youth!

Confession: "Cajun Man" was one of my favorite SNL characters in the 90s.

And an edit because in this game, you vote up the films you like. Counting my votes, Big Daddy should be at 10 points now, not 8 or 6.

I...just can't even play this game.

I can't rememebr if I saw "Anger Management" all the way through, or just saw bits of it on TV. Otherwise, I have seen none of these.
