Adam Sandler's a genius, and we swear we're not joking.
Adam Sandler gets a bad rap. With a filmography that includes "Click" and "Jack and Jill" and "Little Nicky," that's honestly fair. But what if there's more to Adam Sandler than the poop jokes? What if he can tell us something about an entire generation of men? Let's find out in this Wisecrack Edition on Adam Sandler: The Triumph of the Manchild

  • He’s always been good. It’s just sometimes people have ups and downs. Not every project is gonna be a winner. Plus, this idea of drama only being the “good” genre to master is bullshit. Comedy is incredibly difficult and more so than drama, so Adam Sandler has always been good. He’s mastered a genre that most Oscar winners can’t master.

  • 'Uncut Gems' --- a milestone on the continuum beginning with 'Citizen Kane' ? Having experienced this type of person at close quarters (more than once!!!!😱) I found the momentum totally terrifying! His manic self-belief towards the end still didn't prepare me for the denouement.....his wife? his children? his lover? his father? In the end, it really is JUST. ABOUT. HIM. A friend likened this experience to 'being around Iggy Popp & Bowie when they were both off their heads & everyone seeing this as really cool, glamorous even.....simply being swept along by it.....' Was there a mention of an analogy with a Shakespearean Tragedy? I love that.....a pragmatist non-achiever (the noun is intentional ) steamrolling his way towards his goal -- if only the goal didn't keep changing? Once I started seeing the movie as a Work of Art -- the wonderful moment when Kevin Garnett peers into the Opal, & sees only images that relate to his life -- I felt less stressed by it...... but I still can't handle the end! A most enjoyable & enlightening review -- thank you! 🙏🏼🌹🙏🏽

  • My wife and put this movie on and was filled with so much anxiety that she googled the ending for not wanting to sit through the rest of this cringe worthy fest. We ended up turning it mainly because we both had to get up early. I told myself that I was going to go back and finish and ended up never getting back around to it because of how much emotion it drew from me. It was painful to watch but I throughly enjoyed it lol btw I went back and made myself finish the movie eventually. Adam did an amazing job keeping the viewers locked in and feel like he should have received an Oscar the the project. I would like to know why he didn’t get one. Was it that uncomfortable?

  • I made the same point in my discussions of this movie; Punch-Drunk Love is my favorite film, and I was baffled to hear people online talking about how Sandler is finally living up to his potential. His comedies are very hit-or-miss, but that makes his serious roles in movies like Gems or Meyerowitz more valuable.

  • This analysis of the journey of Sandler’s characters’ persona is not mutually exclusive with the idea that most of his movies are shit. I think you frame this video with the idea that they are not horrible or that he is actually funny in them because in the future they will have helped to inform a good movie/performance. Comes off a little pretentious to me. Like you set up his critics with a tone which implies ‘haters gonna hate’, and then made a quip about him continuing to make bad movies at the end. You’re subtly playing all sides and I’m seeing (and have always seen) through it! At any rate, I agree with every other aspect of your analysis XD

  • The movie doesn't stop until he got shout, i was thinking that maybe this frenetic way of the movie reminds us how his mind works. He is and will be never EVER satified with the money or results that he made, which ended up him making bad bad choice, what makes this movie such increadible. Plus KG destroyed IT what an ACT. Edit: Dude ! He didn't die ! He got shout under his eyes and the brain is a bit more above of it, you can figure out it by the amount of blood who came out of his wound, plus the blood colour for this type of injury is morr similar to pink, once the blood in the head receives more O2 because of the brain demands more oxigene.

  • So every Adam Sandler movie is basically Adam Sandler playing Adam Sandler in the different phases of his real life. In the 90s he was a man child who didn't want to grow up. In the 2000s he was a man child who matured and became a family man. In the 2010s he was a family man who yearned for his man child days of old

  • Sandler rarely does these indie flicks because he owns his own production company. He shoots in fun locations in the summer so he can bring his family, edits in the fall so he can drive his kids to school, and he casts all his friends and favorite actors. He build himself a perfect life at the cost of artistic integrity. Hard to say that I wouldn't do the same.

  • He did other attempts to "grow" like Punch-Drunk-And-Love and Reign Over Me. We could dispute on the quality of those productions (I happen to actually like these ones) but those are not the standard roles or productions Sandler would jump in at first. The sad reality maybe is this: It's really hard to be a grown man in a business that was tamed to abuse anyone who wants to do things a little different. Those who accomplished that are really either privileged or resilient. He did the middle way, he earn some bucks then did something for himself or to others remember that he was a really good actor.

  • I'm very surprised that Reign Over Me was not mentioned in this video. In my opinion, I would fit the archetype of the public that deems him ''disapointing'' BECAUSE I've seen and loved his performance in Reign Over Me. It is not a phenomenal movie, but he delivers a heartbreaking performance and yetl, after watching your video, I realise the usual themes of man-child / disapointing ''adult'' life are present in the movie. However, Adam Sandler' character is stuck in a sort of ''man-child'' phase because of trauma, grief and denial, therefore adding a level of mental illness and seriousness to the usual recipe.
