    No Spanglish? I actually liked that one but maybe because my wife is Spanish, or I have very bad tastes in movies. Or both.

    I actually liked these a lot:

    The Waterboy
    Reign Over Me
    Coneheads

    I don't know how anything can be worse than Going Overboard.

    I really despised it the first time I watched it although there were several laughs and the whole Buscemi story line was great. I can't remember who all was in the conversation but we talked about this movie (on this forum) several years ago and as a result I gave in and watched it a second time. I liked it a little better but still found most of the story line to be abrasively juvenile and again, I loved the Buscemi moments. Other than Buscemi and the handful of funny moments though, I felt like I was watching an uncensored Jerry Lewis movie.

    the “Do you have any more gum” musical number at the end of act 2 alone puts it in Sandler’s top 3.

    Wow on this one we will always disagree. Other than one or two funny parts, Billy Madison is a waste of 90 minutes.

    Isn’t “abrasively juvenile” just fancy talk for “Adam Sandler?”

    To a degree but it's less true in the AS movies I actually like. Billy Madison, vulgarities aside, could easily have been a prime era Jerry Lewis movie. Well, except for the Buscemi scenes, those outclass any traditional Lewis movie I can think of.

    Billy Madison is an absolute guilty pleasure and probably my favorite Sandler movie

    Then again, I didn't follow him to rom com land and then back to Chuck and Larry territory

    Basically if it has a Dan Patrick cameo I probably haven't seen it

    For time and place though, his early movies definitely landed and I still love Billy Madison

    You can disagree, but just know that you'll be awarded no points and may God have mercy on your soul

    Has anyone seen his new Netflix Halloween movie? Jesus Christ is horrible.
