Here is every Adam Sandler movie ranked from worst to best.
Really, it’s a proverb at this point: Sandman does what only Sandman can do. Adam Sandler turns in an Oscar-worthy performance (we’ll never let this snub go) in 2019’s Uncut Gems, dazzling as the rambling, gambling jeweler Howard Ratner. A year later? Hubie Halloween. A toilet-humored rehashing of the crude-humored romps Sandler made his name on. But it works. Yeah, he some help from Steve Buscemi going all-out as a rabid werewolf, but it works.
That’s the range Sandler will give you. You have The Meyerowitz Stories and Punch-Drunk Loves of his filmography, smashed right up against Grown Ups and Little Nicky. (Don’t forget: DEEDS!) It’s a trip to sort out. In the spirit of Hubie Dubois, we opted for some law and order, taking the liberty of ranking Sandler’s films from worst to best.
