Seriously, Adam Sandler Triumphs in Netflix’s The Meyerowitz Stories

2 years ago by Bilge Ebiri
The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) premieres on Netflix Oct. 13 Adam Sandler’s core as a performer has always been his self-loathing.

16 years ago by Luke Y. Thompson
With 50 First Dates, it seems as though Adam Sandler is trying to compile a greatest-hits film, cobbling together the stuff that worked in his previous films in hopes that it'll play even better all in one go. There's the falsetto comedy-song bit from every episode of Saturday Night Live,...
