A significantly better effort than his production company's other namesake, Happy Gilmore found Adam Sandler the formula that would sustain his career for the next several decades. He's still angry, he's still a sexist, he still talks in funny little voices, but this time...he has a super power. Seriously, look through the vast majority of Adam Sandler's comedy repertoire. For some reason, the dude is always wielding a power of some sort. It's weird. He also casts himself this time as someone who has at least some sort of grounding factor, someone he loves (his Grandma), that lets this one appeal to an audience of men who are...let's say, 13-25, rather than 10-16 like Billy Madison. The laughs are still *very* sporadic, however, and the plot is treated with no care. I've noticed that this man tends to write just about every movie with a guy named Tim Herlihy, but honestly what the fuck is there to write? What are they doing?? Why are there two of them??
