Aren't The Wedding Singer and Funny People supposed to be OK? Never saw 'em. Diidn't hate 'em. (As opposed to the rest of his ouevre excluding PDL: Never saw 'em. Hated 'em.)

Was your friend sure he wasn't just having a bad day?

That is certainly possible, although he never really elaborated.

Wedding Singer was cute enough.   I'd give it a 11.1/14.2.

And Funny People had some promise, and delivered with a few nice sequences... but then dragged on a bit too long.  More like a  6.4/9.7 for that one.

Sandler was great in Shakes, The Clown

I've seen of ton of the earlier ones & most of them are totally forgettable now - however I laughed like a total moron at Happy Madison and Little Nicky.

Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

Do you have any idea how hard I am fighting myself not to share the Sandler assessment?

I like Sandler as an actor (PDL, Funny People) but anything Happy Madison produces is awful. I liked Billy Madison a lot and Happy Gilmore. It is important point out that the bulk of Sandlers is known for came out before I had really developed my interest in good comedy, so I saw and enjoyed The Wedding Singer, Little Nicky, Mr Deeds and The Waterboy. I know it isn't Sandler but I think the first time I realized mainstream comedy wasn't for me was when I snuck into Old School in highschool. I felt so cheated. All that work for nothing.

Made me think of that squid-picture that Hokusai drew.

Not on my list. You can put them on yours if you like.

Dave, have you seen all the movies you list as top ten on your blog? If so, you must watch A LOT of movies.

I use a number of book and online resources to get a film's rating on a scale from 0 to 10, unless I have seen it, in which case I base the rating on my personal opinion. I use a combination of the sources to take an educated guess at the person's prominence in the film; they tend to be in pretty close agreement.

The last time I tried to check, about 3 years back, I estimated that I had seen approximately 8000 films. Someday I will make a list. Of course.
