Adam Sandler can be serious? And how!

It turns out that Adam Sandler hides many secrets, including a talent for dramatic roles. So why do we only associate him with comedy and him? best performances are left out? We will look at productions that showed that this actor has a little more than just the humor of an unfunny uncle.

Adam Sandler was born in 1966 in New York and he began his career in a Boston comedy club. There he was discovered by Dennis Miller – an experienced comedian and satirist who recommended Sandler for “Saturday Night Live”.

Adam Sandler is mainly associated with comedy roles, and the films in which he appeared were often assessed negatively. Compared to some productions in which we could observe the actor, it can be said that Sandler was wasted in such films. He also tried his hand as a producerbut here too the critics were not very kind in their assessments.

It cannot be denied that when thinking about Adam Sander, comedies come to the fore: “Big Children”, “Don’t Mess with the Hairdresser” or “Click: And You Do Whatever You Want”. It turns out that the actor has great roles that will take your breath away. This is the case with the production of “Uncut Diamonds”.

The 2019 film is an incredibly intense picture, everything happens quickly, suddenly, there is no time to breathe. On the one hand, it is tiring, and on the other, it means that the viewer doesn’t have a moment to get bored.

Adam Sandler plays Howard Ratner, an enterprising and creative jewelry store owner. Why creative? Because no one juggles investments and cash like he does. As viewers, we notice that some of his moves are not entirely pure and morally appropriate, and deep down we root for him.

Sandler is flawless in this role. It’s hard to remember a character played by this actor who wouldn’t be the least bit irritating.

“Astronaut” debuted on Polish Netflix on March 1 and immediately became one of the most watched productions in our country.

The science fiction drama tells the story of astronaut Jacob (Adam Sandler) who sets off on a lonely research mission to the edge of the solar system. After six months, he realizes that when he returns to Earth, his marriage to Lenka (Carey Mulligan) may no longer exist. He wants to repair his relationship at all costsin which he is helped by a mysterious creature hiding inside his ship, existing since the dawn of time.

Just don’t let this description fool you, because it is it is not a story about the conquest of space and heroic deeds. It is a story about loneliness and the functioning of a human being many, many kilometers away from another person.

Once again, Adam Sandler surprises with his approach to the hero and how well he fits into such a serious role. Even though the film is not very innovative, the main character himself sells us a great story that makes us want to watch (except for people who are afraid of spiders).

It appears that Adam Sandler’s new path of acting development is really taking off and viewers appreciate his efforts. This can be proven, for example, by an actor’s earnings.

Adam Sandler appeared and produced three films for Netflix in 2023 (including the animation “Leo”). According to Forbes, it earned him $73 million and the title of the highest-paid Hollywood actor. His earnings also include stand-up comedy.

The star overtook Margot Robbie ($59 million), who at the age of 33 became the youngest person in history to enter the top ten on the list.

This is the first time Adam Sandler has appeared at the top of the Forbes list.
