Which of these Adam Sandler quotes is your favorite?
It is evident in nearly every role he has played that he seems to be enjoying himself and doing what he loves. He has had far too many great movies for me to try and decide which one is the best Adam Sandler movie, but personally I liked “Spanglish”!
My kids love all the Hotel Transylvania movies (who am I kidding, we all love those!) Yet, my husband would tell you his favorite is “The Water Boy” or “Happy Gilmore”. Thankfully, he has given us so many movies to choose from!
It says a lot about who he is as a person that he includes his wife, his friends, and even his kids in his movies. Rob Schneider has played some of my favorite characters!
I also enjoy it when he sings, like in “The Wedding Singer” or the “Hanukkah Song”! Use the comment section below to let us know which of these Adam Sandler quotes and sayings is your favorite.
