I really like the one where he plays the childish idiot who is prone to fits of rage.

Punch drunk love is the only film i'd admit to liking of his.
Actually I loved it. But I will credit Paul for that.

I did think happy gilmore was funny. My grandmother got a kick out of it, too.

Well saw Anger Management last night. It was good but not his best. Nicholson was better than I expected but most of the laughs didn't come from Sandler or Nicholson IMO. The co stars I thought were the funniest.

I'd probably say it was on a par with Mr.Deeds.

Looks like its doing well anyway. It's been predicted that it will take $44.5million this weekend. Which is better than Deeds which made $37m I think.

Can't wait for Sandlers next two projects. He's producing Deuce Bigalow 2 and doing another film with Drew Barrymore.

I actually really like the Wedding Singer, so I picked that.

Followed by Happy Gilmore.

I'm not sure I'd count Punch Drunk Love (but I'm also still not sure, after just seeing it once, whether I actually liked the movie or not).

BEST - Punch Drunk Love

VERY FUNNY - Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Anger Management

Funny how Little Nicky is too awful to even be considered an option, though I admit that one slipped into "So bad it's good" place for me.

If this were BEST Adam Sandler movie I'd have said Punch Drunk Love, as it is the most quality piece of work. If it were FUNNIEST Sandler movie I would have to vote for Billy Madison (with Happy a close second). But since it is FAVORITE I went with Wedding Singer. For some reason this movie just puts me in a happy place whenever I see it.

By the way, where's Little Nicky? Not that it's all that great, but it is very much a "Sandler" movie.

The Wedding Singer, which also showed the sweetest Drew Barrymore ever since E.T..

If I knew how to play golf, I'd probably go for Happy Gilmore.

Which is why Punch-Drunk Love is the best film Sandler has ever appeared in by an extremely large margin.

Every other film starring Sandler is just plain awful IMO.
I agree. I loved Punch-Drunk Love, and it is the only Adam Sandler film I have been able to watch for more than 5 minutes before starting to feel physically sick.

I used to love Adam Sandler but I got too bored of him quickly. So the last option gets my vote.

He isn't just funny anymore, because in every single damn film, he's always playing the same damn character.

"Mr. Deeds" and "Little Nicky" are probably the two worst movies I've ever seen.

It's hard to judge.
Wedding Singer, Billy Madison, and Happy Gilmore were all great movies. Easily the top three.

Big Daddy would probably be fourth.

At the bottom goes The Waterboy.

Two movies I'm not counting are Eight Crazy Nights and Going Overboard.

And Anger Management, Mr. Deeds, Airheads, Little Nicky, Punch Drunk Love, etc. go in the middle.
