Top 10 Funniest Adam Sandler Movies

The Top Ten

1 Happy Gilmore

Universally, its most people's favorite all-time Sandler movie, and I get it. It has a plot that is conducive to comedic situations. Wedding Singer will always be my favorite, but Happy Gilmore is right behind it.

Sandler plays Happy Gilmore, a failed hockey player who turns to golf in order to earn enough money to buy his grandma's house back.

Even though Adam Sandler can't act very well (he acts noticeably stupid in some of his films, especially the newer ones), there do exist good Sandler films, and this is one of them. - LarryLarrington

The only thing he doe is to playing golf and in the end he's grandmother may back she's house

2 Billy Madison

Vote! This should be #1 hands down. Everything about this movie is funny, if you can't quote this movie than you might as drive your car over a banana peel, lose control and drive off a random cliff (;

Sandler plays Billy Madison, a ne'er do-well who needs to go back to school in order to become the owner of his dad's company.

How is this at 8? The heck? This movie has so many great scenes.. That veronica vaughn is one piece of ACE! Haha YouTube that and you will laugh guaranteed!

Funny and enjoyable

3 Big Daddy

Sandler plays Sonny, a screw-up, who takes care of his best friends son, Julian, who shows up at his apartment while his friend is in China.

A lazy law school grad adopts a kid to impress his girlfriend, but everything doesn't go as planned and he becomes the unlikely foster father.

This movie is so funny it should at least be in the top 3. =] - foxrocks

One of his greatest but I think blended should b n the list

4 The Waterboy

Sandler plays Bobby Boucher, an uneducated waterboy, who becomes a football star by taking out his anger on the ballcarrier.

What Forest Gump would be if it was a full-out comedy - TotalBeast93

Should be number 2 in my eyes, I laugh out loud whilst by myself just like when watching Happy Gilmore.

5 The Longest Yard

Sandler plays former NFL Quarterback, Paul Crewe, who rounds up a group of inmates to play a football game against the guards.

Sandler plays his usual self, but the script and the story fit around him perfectly... it's beautiful

cheeseburger eddie ftw :) but I wonder why click isn't in the top ten. it is an amazing film

Love it hilarious movie

6 Click

I was very surprised how moving Click was the 1st time I watched the film. It's a storyline that has been the backbone of many films, i.e, The Family Man & It's a Wonderful Life. Sandler just adds his flavor to the story. It worked & made for an entertaining & amusing flick.

I really liked the movie,but I did not understand the ending scene,I think its because I am a kid.

It's Hilarious Great Thing To Watch Recommend it Highly

Best ever

8 Little Nicky

Sandler plays the Devil's son, Nicky, who tries to bring his brothers, Cassius & Adrian, who went to Earth, back to Hell before his father deteriorates.

Let's just say, if Punch Drunk Love had as much funny parts as Little Nicky, I would watch it.

I remember watching this movie when I was little. I absolutely love it!

9 50 First Dates

Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.

I thought it was so cute, but kind of sad, because don't you think it would get annoying every single day to have to say hi there, I'm your husband and you're my wife.

This movie will always make you laugh! It's also a good love comedy movie! I loved this movie it is the greatest! I also love Happy gilmore, but I think 50 first dates should be #1! This movie rocks!

This movie is the bomb

10 You Don't Mess With the Zohan

This movie is so retarded it doesn't even relate to Sandler's best movies or even his true genre of films to begin with.

I know it is so amazing I can watch it all day and still be laughing

An Israeli Special Forces Soldier fakes his death so he can re-emerge in New York City as a hair stylist.

my kind of humor weard and funny.

The Contenders

11 The Wedding Singer

This film should be in the top 3. It's an Adam Sandler classic with laughs, a good plot, well developed characters, a great ending, and a unique version of Adam Sandler.

You people obviously have not seen The Wedding Singer otherwise it wouldn't be anything short of #1. What the hell is wrong with you people. This is Adam Sandlers greatest comedy. Yes I said it. His all time (GREATEST COMEDY) Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, Anger Management etc, NONE of them can touch The Wedding Singer. You people are crazy to have it this low. I suggest you either rewatch it and actually pay attention or if you haven't yet, Watch the damn movie!

This one takes the cake when ranking Sandler films. Not even a 2nd thought. It is fun, clever, accurate, funny and very very entertaining.

This is the most critically acclaimed of any of his films.

12 Mr. Deeds

Sandler plays Longfellow Deeds, a pizzeria owner, who inherits billions of dollars from his deceased uncle.

This is 1 of my favourite movies of all time, so funny and a really cool plot, I personally think that this deserves to be number 1.

Obviously, it's a movie remade for modern day audiences. Not my favorite Sandler film but not my least favorite.

This movie was ' hilarious! Should be at least in the Top 3

13 Anger Management

Sandler plays a businessman who is wrongly sentenced to an anger-management program, where he meets an aggressive instructor.

My favorite Adam Sandler movie ever its really really fun to watch and its super funny.

15 Just Go With It

However many times I watch it, I laugh every time, even thinking about it now makes me chuckle to myself. All the characters are awesome, and the actors are amazing!

One of the best movies ever! Could watch it everyday and it's so funny like all the way through it. Recommended to watch (everybody)

16 Jack and Jill

Who put this piece of crap on this list?

Who would even think about adding this abomination?

This movie had amazing acting from Adam Sandler and the jokes were so witty, I believe this should be number 1.

It’s so bad it is good and people still wanted to watch this even though the trailer was terrible it made 150 million in the box office

17 Blended

After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship.

Amazing loved it two people who hate each other go on a trip to Africa and end up on love!

It's a complete package, and I actually loved it straight from the heart

Nah I didn't really like it so much but it was cool.
Especially the part when the staff members keep telling the kid that he sucks - AlphaQ

18 Airheads

Three heavy metal musicians (Brendan Fraser as Cazz, Steve Buscemi as Rex, and Sandler as Pip) hijack a radio station, with water guns in hopes of getting their demo tape played.

19 I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

I have always found this one to be incredibly amusing. They use all the taboo stereotypes that the "manly man" thinks about same-sex couples. However, there's a good moral to the story. This one is undoubtedly in my Top 5 Sandler flicks.

Sandler plays Chuck Levine who helps his best friend, Larry (Kevin James), with his financial troubles by pretending to be gay and marrying him.

Great movie,coo funny and has a great story line and it is a must watch

20 Pixels

This movie is so hilarious - bobbythebrony

Guilty pleasire

It's not a comedy stil good movie if you love video games

21 That's My Boy

I hate this movie,its just so bad

It took me a couple viewings to like it the way I do now. Very much a film w sophomoric humor and raunch but I don't mind if it's used in a storyline that maintains my interest. Its not for everyone, but it's my guilty pleasure Sandler film.

Best movie ever can watch it every day

Deadset funny stupid comedy
Always great for a laugh especially if your a Boston sports fan.

23 Reign Over Me
24 Pixles

25 Bedtime Stories
26 Funny People

When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.

His best film, at least. To be honest my favourite Sandler films aren't his most comedic. - truckturner

27 The Do-Over

28 Eight Crazy Nights

he has memory that his parents were not here to come pick him up because they died and it was really sad! :( :C

29 Hotel Transylvania

Great movie

30 Ridiculous 6

Funniest one by a long shot, it has a different humor to it, but great nonetheless.

31 Punch Drunk Love

Absolutely brilliant film. Nothing at all like anything Sandler has done before or since. To prove my point; this was nominated for the Palme D'or (Meaning Best Picture) at the Cannes Film Festival (probably the most prestigious film festival in the world) and WON Best Director there. A Sandler film at Cannes; who would have thought?

32 The Benchwarmers

The Benchwarmers is hilarious


33 The Weak Of

A halarios movie with adam sandler why isn't it in top ten

34 Going Overboard

Horrible movie its trailer trash just as bad or worse then Jack And Jill

35 Bulletproof
36 Mixed Nuts
37 The Cobbler


38 Hotel Transylvania 2

Funny movies
