Adam Sandler is pretty good. I remember his silly comedies and while the comedies are still coming out, they aren’t quite so silly and instead comment on the world condition.
Wait, stop, what? Am I serious. You are damn skippy.
Reviewing Sandler’s last two movies(I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry; Don’t Mess With the Zohan), I’ve come to the conclusion that he has found a brilliant way to provide social commentary. He lures the audience in with a seemingly insane and silly comedy that people hope to be like Happy Gilmore or Billy Madison. While those characters went on a similar journey of personal growth, the subject matter in the most recent films have been the most controversial. Both movies end with the point of increased tolerance, wrong for behaving and believing in a different way, and having learned.
I have to give credit to the man for that. He has found a good formula to comment on the world and even offer alternatives/new.
Chee huu to you buddy!
Now if only some of the powers that be would think about the movies lidat…
