His leading ladies just keep getting younger and younger.

Answer to the Bonus: Those are the only ones that are actually good!

Interesting post
I have actually seen none of these films, and the only only one I have considered seeing is Punch Drunk Love.
But his face annoys me just by looking at the pics so I doubt I could make it through a whole film starring him...

BTW I really like your blog, it's quite inspirational!

The answer to the bonus: The only Sandler movies NOT afflicated with his Happy Madison production team.

Or movies he didn't write or come up with the story with.

Some very pretty ladies. But those are mostly awful, awful movies. He needs to retire.

Andy the Time Lord said...

More reasons I need to become a actor.

Fletch said...

Seb - Bingo on the part about the ladies. No dice on the bonus for you - at least, that's not what was I going for.

Jack - Well, I see that you're young - you have plenty of time. It's true, though, most of his flicks are barely worth seeing, though some are just plain fun, and believe it or not, a few are pretty darn good.

Inspirational? Why thank you!

Jason - yup, you got the bonus. He gets older...they stay the SAME age. Ok, not toally, but there's definitely a trend.

Blake - the movies certainly don't seem to be getting any better, do they?

Andy - yeah, that too. Lots of hotties all around.

Aiden R. said...

Not too shabby. Brooklyn Decker's boobs are huge, btw...you know, in case you didn't get that from the previews.

And what the hell happened to Fairuza Balk?

Fletch said...

Aiden - Seriously? Decker's got huge boobs? I'll have to look into them a bit more, do a bit more research.

Sidenote: I think she's kinda of a butter-face. Worse looking than Giselle, who many think has one. I say nay.

When I was reading the Millenium trilogy, it was Balk I thought of to play Lisbeth Salander. Only real issue was that she's too old now. Dunno what happened to her and her crazy eyes, though...

Fitz said...

I'm continually disappointed that Sandler won't go back to that Funny People/Punch-Drunk Love watering hole. Don't know why.

Fletch said...

Fitz - no kidding. Dude has the chops to do more than he's currently doing. Then again...producer credit, mega paycheck...you can see more evidence here...I can't really blame the guy.

Aiden R. said...

Man, she would have been a great Salander. Definitely too old though.

Agree about the butterface, but she's growing on me thanks to those enormous boobs that NO ONE knows about.
