8. Little Nicky (2000)

2000’s Little Nicky is a greatly underappreciated Adam Sandler movie in terms of not only its popularity, but how entertaining it is. Even the staunchest Sandler fans describe Little Nicky as the actor’s first feature film disaster and call it “bizarre” or “so weird”, but that is what makes it great. The plot is very unique, and endlessly hilarious, and featured Rodney Dangerfield, Allen Covert and Peter Dante in major roles. Somehow Little Nicky got the worst wrap out of Sandler’s films of the time, but actually holds up well, and deserves a little more credit for the comedy and unique plot no matter how bizarre it is.

7. 50 First Dates (2004)

After proving in 1998’s The Wedding Singer that he was a viable romantic lead, Adam Sandler went on to make several romantic-comedies and while most fans preferred him to stick to his normal man-child films, some were received well. In 2004, he teamed up with Drew Barrymore for 50 First Dates, and while it naturally received mixed reviews at best from critics, it again pulled in more than $120 million at the domestic box office. 50 First Dates was one of those rare films where Sandler was mature and sweet while still maintaining his goofy self without pushing it too far.
