Adam Sandler is a joke. Well, at least he’s one of the genuine funny men in the industry whose name makes you crack up into a smile – or a chuckle, or definitely, at least a giggle. And on the birthday of the funny-man who revived the harmless, goofy comedy genre, we give you his 5 best films.

#1 The Wedding Singer (1998)

This is one of the films that epitomizes the 90s and who better than Sandler to bring one of the main characters to life? Starring Sandler and Drew Barrymore in the lead roles, this film was a smash-hit not just for its crackling script and perfect comic timing by the lead actors, but also because of the fresh chemistry between the two leads.

The Wedding Singer is about a young man who’s dumped by his girlfriend because she thinks he’s an underachiever because he works as a Wedding Singer. He meets a waitress who is about to get married, and he promises to sing at her wedding. But that never the end of it.

# 2 You Don’t Mess With The Zohan (2008)

This film was about a superhuman soldier hiding in plain sight as a hair-dresser. If there’s’ anyone who could have had fun with this idea, it was Sandler and have fun he did. Sandler kicked ass playing the title of role of Zohan, and with his awesome comedic talents and timing, the whole thing was a barrel of laughs that rolled in the theatres.  

#3 50 First Dates (2004)

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler returned to screen for this film that was a light take on mental conditions like retrograde amnesia. The script was novel, the humor was there, and all Adam and Drew had to do was to rely on their infective chemistry to make a great film.  

#4 Anger Management (2003)

A casting coup if ever there was – Jack Nicholson and Sandler in a film together. Anger Management had several many classic Sandler/Nicholson moments, and some of them even had good comedy going about. Adam plays a young executive who suffers from passive-aggressiveness and a therapist volunteers to cure him.

# 5 Click (2006)

This is one of Adam’s most underrated films critically, though it made more than double its budget at the box-office. Click is one of those rare films that give the actor an opportunity to create a balance in the humour and the emotional track in the story-line, and seasoned Sandler does it with elan.

Starring Kate Beckinsale and The Christopher Walken, the film has Adam playing an over-worked engineer who gets a hold of a universal remote, with which he can forward the boring parts of his life – for real. This one is not just watchable, it is re-watchable.
