Adam Sandler's 'Embarrassing' Career: By the numbers
 

 

[pic - click to view]



Adam Sandler broke one of Hollywood's most undesirable records Sunday: He received the most Razzie nominations ever by a star in one year. The annual Golden Raspberry Awards, now in their 32nd year, reward the worst in film, and Sandler received a record 11 nods for his work as a writer, actor, and producer in a trio of critically-ravaged 2011 films — Jack and Jill, Just Go With It, and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star. Though Sandler's been branded "the patron saint of scathing critical responses," he nevertheless remains one of Hollywood's few reliable box office stars. Here's a look at how his "embarrassing," paradoxical career breaks down:

11
Razzie nominations earned by Adam Sandler this year, a record for one star. (The winners will be announced April 1.)

5
The previous record for most nominations in one year, set by Eddie Murphy

4
Number of nominations Sandler received for Jack and Jill: Worst Actor, Worst Actress (for his cross-dressing performance as Jill), Worst Screenplay, and Worst Ensemble. The movie received 8 additional Razzie nods.

7
Times Sandler has been nominated for a Worst Actor Razzie. He's only won once, for his performance in Big Daddy.

10
Career Razzie wins by Sylvester Stallone, a record

37
Number of films that Sandler has either acted in, directed, written, or produced, according to Rotten Tomatoes, a website which aggregates critical opinion

32
Number of those films which were rated "rotten," meaning that fewer than 50 percent of the critics considered by Rotten Tomatoes recommend the movie

25
Number of films in which Sandler has starred, according to Box Office Mojo

12
Number of those films that have earned more than $100 million at the domestic box office. Has Sandler "actually developed a foolproof formula for turning awful films into multiplex gold," wonders Julie Miller at Movieline

3
Percentage of critics who recommended Jack and Jill on Rotten Tomatoes

$74 million
Domestic box office haul for Jack and Jill. By comparison, The Artist, which just picked up the Best Picture Oscar, has earned less than half that amount to date.

19
Percentage of critics who recommended Just Go With It, which earned five Razzie nominations this year, on Rotten Tomatoes

$103 million
Domestic box office haul for Just Go With It, again suggesting a "box office paradox" when it comes to Sandler

10
Percentage of critics who recommended Grown Ups on Rotten Tomatoes

$162 million
Domestic box office haul for Grown Ups

0
Percentage of critics who recommended Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, which Sandler co-wrote and produced

79
Percentage of critics who recommended 2002's Punch-Drunk Love, Sandler's biggest critical hit

$17 million
Box office haul for Punch-Drunk Love. Only Airheads and Mixed Nuts, both released before Sandler's breakout performance in 1995's Billy Madison, grossed less.

1
Number of Golden Globe nominations received by Sandler to date. The sole nod was for Punch-Drunk Love.

What do I care if someone else doesn't like his movies?

Decided to look up his movies:

- Happy Gilmore
- Billy Madison
- Bulletproof
- Waterboy
- Big Daddy
- Little Nicky
- Mr Deeds
- 50 First Dates
- Longest Yard
- Click
- I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry
- Grown Ups
- Just Go With It

All of these entertained me while I watched them. Some more than others, but still all decent in their own right.

I didn't see Grown Ups or Just Go With It but Grown Ups looked awful.

Longest Yard's best part was when they actually played football but that was pretty much it

- Happy Gilmore
- Billy Madison
- Waterboy
- Big Daddy

Classics tho

If you followed him from SNL then I mean really what would you expect? His movies are derived from his comedic style basically . I'm sure he's happy how his career turned out since the beginning and his movies make money.

if adam sandler was living in a box down a back alley shooting meth into his arm. i would say his career was embarassing.

mabye you dont like his films, hell i fu*king hate his movies, but for christs sakes they make more money than quakers got oats. jack and jill was number 1 at the box office. deal with it. the guy basically prints money whenever he feels like it. leave him alone.

look at every single comedy actor from his era. all of the snl actors from back then. and what are they doing now? definitely not making 100 million at the box office. dude is k!lling the game. i dont think he gives a fu*k about artistic integrity.

I'm not a fan really, but I do enjoy Happy Gilmore, Bulletproof, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, The Waterboy and The Longest Yard. I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is good too. The rest are awful.
