I’ve decided to have an Adam Sandler marathon. I think I’ve been a little harsh on the guy lately (but he deserves it, amirite?), so I’ve decided to go through his whole filmography to show that I do like some of his movies. I’ll be watching twenty-nine of his movies throughout the first two weeks of August, and posting the reviews throughout the second half of August. (Maybe earlier.) I am going to still be wathcing as many other movies as I can muster, but I’ll get through the twenty-eight. The eight movies I’ve reviewed out of his filmography, I won’t be reviewing again. Out of those eight movies, I like four of them (“50 First Dates,” “Billy Madison,” “Grown Ups,” “The Hot Chick“). And I can’t stand to watch the other four ever again (“Airheads,” “Grown Ups 2,” “Jack and Jill” and “That’s My Boy“). A good amount of the movies I’ll be reviewing I’ve seen before (20 out of 29, but I only remember 14 out of those), so that might seem a little strange, but I’ll review it as both a re-watch and a new experience, if that makes sense. I just want to watch all of his movies so I can say I’ve made it through his torturous flicks and his best. Hopefully I don’t get too tired of the egg-headed comedian! I’m also a fan of his early career. So here’s what I’ll be watching on each day:
Day 1: The Wedding Singer, Just Go With It. (Romantic Sandler.)
Day 2: Going Overboard, Shakes the Clown. (Early Career.)
Day 3: The Animal, Pauly Shore is Dead, Dirty Work. (Non-starring roles.)
Day 4: Little Nicky, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. (Distinctive Characters.)
Day 5: Deuce Bigalow: European Gigalo, Zookeeper. (Non-starring roles.)
Day 6: The Longest Yard, Mr. Deeds. (Inferior Remakes.)
Day 7: Click, Bedtime Stories. (Family-friendly Sandler.)
Day 8: Happy Gilmore, Anger Management. (Angry Sandler.)
Day 9: Coneheads, Mixed Nuts. (Non-starring roles.)
Day 10: Bulletproof, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. (Random.)
Day 11: Eight Crazy Nights, Hotel Transylvania. (Animated Sandler.)
Day 12: Spanglish, Funny People. (Non-Happy Madison Productions.)
Day 13: Punch-Drunk Love, Reign Over Me. (Critically Acclaimed Sandler.)
Day 14: Big Daddy, The Waterboy. (Legitimately Funny Sandler.)

You. Are. An. Animal! ANIMAL!
Hahah wish me luck!
I’ve already burned three candles in your honor. Godspeed, friend.
Hahah I’m going to need that after Day 2… I tried my best to balance out a bad movie with a really good one, but the Day 2 didn’t balance out so well… Shakes the Clown and Going Overboard in one day… Both were real tests of patience…
