Adam and His Movies

Although critics say that Adam Sandler makes a bad movie even worse, we have to disagree. Mr. Sandler knows exactly how to draw attention to the screen and is probably the only thing making these bad movies some money because even though it is terrible, you cannot stop watching them. 

You can’t argue with his financial success either since he’s one of the most highly-paid actors each year.
