Adam Sandler has been striking out lately at the box office thanks in part to his less than stellar movie roles. Did anybody see Jack and Jill or That’s My Boy? We didn’t think so. At the height of his career Adam Sandler impressed audiences with his comedic chops and improv skills. Put next to other comedians of his generation, audience members couldn’t help but laugh until they cried. Here is our list of the 5 Best Adam Sandler Movies.
05. Airheads: 1994
Before Adam Sandler was a household name, he appeared on The Cosby Show and an Afterschool Special where he played a drug dealer. He didn’t get his first big break until he starred opposite Brendan Fraser and Steve Buscemi as Pip in 1994’s Airheads. The comedy was about a band who holds a radio station hostage with toy guns after the DJ refuses to play their song. The title of the movie comes from all three band members lacking common sense. With supporting characters played by Chris Farley, David Arquette, and Joe Mantegna you’re guaranteed to have a good time watching it.
