For the past few years, Adam Sandler has abandoned his fans, the ones who got him where he is today (Billionaire Town). Punch Drunk Love? Spanglish? Funny People? Bullshit! Who does he think he is, an actor? Boo! Get off the acting stage! Lately, though, it seems like he’s trying to restore his tarnished legacy. First, there’s that horrible new movie about being Jennifer Aniston’s boss, or whatever. He will also play the “Monkey” in Kevin James’s upcoming movie, Paul Blart Mall Fart 2: Zoo Fart. Of course, who could forget the project that Adam Sandler is currently shooting in which he plays a brother AND his own sister. And now, this. (From Pajiba):

Adam Sandler is circling a project called Fat Man. For it, he will wear a fat suit. It may be directed by Miguel Arteta (Cedar Rapids, Youth in Revolt). It is about an 800 pound man who falls in love with his nurse as he tries to lose weight. Neither the director nor Sandler’s role is confirmed, but it’s based on a spec script that Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions acquired several years ago.

  1. It’s too bad there are no overweight actors to play that part, but what are you gonna do?

  2. I would rather watch Patrick M/Mel Gibson masterbate on orphans any day over watching that wretched “movie” Funny People again.

  3. I hope he’s an unredeemable asshole who somehow gets a beautiful woman to fall in love with him

  4. To really reach rock bottom now, he should be in a buddy cop action/comedy:

    “PunchDrunken Master! Starring Jackie Chan and Adam Sandler”

  5. Billy Fatison?

  6. Formula for Adam Sandler movies:

    Sandler plays a (adjective) (profession) who falls in love with a girl played by (Hot costar). The soundtrack will feature (classic rock song) and will costar (one of Sandler’s friends) and (Mid 90′s SNL alum), directed by (another one of Sandler’s friends).

    • Look who works at Happy Madison Productions….

    • For instance:

      Happy Gilmore

      Sandler plays an angry golfer who falls in love with a girl played by Julie Bowen. The soundtrack will feature “Magic” by Pilot and will costar Allen Covert, Kevin Nealon and directed by Dennis Dugan.

      • Billy Madison

        Sandler plays an angry slacker who falls in love with a girl played by Mrs. Pete Sampras. The soundtrack will feature “Telephone Line” by ELO and will costar Norm MacDonald, Kevin Nealon, and directed by Tamra Davis.

    • Big Daddy

      Sandler plays a unemployed lawer who falls in love with a girl played by Joey Lauren Adams. The soundtrack will feature “The Best of Times” by Styx and will costar Allen Covert and Rob Schneider, directed by Dennis Dugan.

      • I was going to point out that it doesn’t really work for Funny People but realized that’s because it’s not a Sandler movie, but rather an Apatow movie in which Sandler stars.

      • I definitely tried to do Mr. Deeds, couldn’t get past Winona Ryder cause they all blend to me. And…yea. Needless to say, this could be a fun game.

    • Print ‘n Save!

  7. Maybe I should stop holding my breath for Little Nicky 2?

  8. He’s got Nicolas Cage syndrome. You just gotta skip the shitty ones and hold out hope for something good down the road.

  9. What can you expect from a guy who literally always wears sweats. Every day. Without exception. At least Rob Schneider has the decency to put some jorts on.

    • He is both the Vincent Chase and the Turtle of his Entourage, also probably the Ari he does make a lot of gay jokes

  10. Once again the man steals black culture to make himself richer.

  11. Your Adam Sandler is so fat, he went on 50 First Dates with a Dairy Queen

  12. What’s the over/under for the number of farts in this movie because I would like to put a thousand on “all of them.”

  13. Remember “Click”? So bad…

  14. Am I the only one who thinks Punch Drunk Love is amazing? Is it a weird movie? Yes. Would I lump it with the likes of Grown Ups or Little Nicky? Nope. Thanks for your opinion though Rogaber Delahayebert.

    • I like Punch Drunk Love. I have a whole theory about romance movies (I’m sure you’re like “Ooh, I really hope this total stranger on the internet tells me her theory”) and it boils down to, I like movies where the focus is on the characters falling in love with each other, rather than on the audience falling in love with the characters. Secretary is one of my favorite movies and I don’t want anything to do with either of those people. But I get why they want to be with each other. Punch Drunk Love has other stuff going for it to, like the crazy sound design, but mostly I like that it’s about two very specific weirdos finding their joy.

      (I like Jerry Maguire well enough, but it basically birthed my theory from its loins. Tom Cruise does not fall in love with Renee Zellwegger in that movie. He likes her, and he likes her kid, and we think they are all adorable, but he doesn’t fall in love with her. And that would be fine, not all relationships are based on romantic love, but they have that whole thing at the end with all the stuff and I’m like, blech.)

      So, yeah, Adam Sandler just acts well every once in a while because his goal is to annoy us, through 90% of his movies, and then, Kaufman-like, through his actual life, and the way he lives it.

    • Something for the Punch Drunk Love fans. I’m not sure how well seen this clip is but Philip Seymour Hoffman goes flying and I never miss an opportunity to post it…

    • I love PDL. One of my favorites.

    • Punch Drunk Love is one of my favorite movies, so no, you are not the only one!

  15. I’m actually happy to hear Jennifer Aniston finally has a new movie coming out! (huh?!?) Only because I know she is the next guest on Between Two Ferns.

  16. On my way to work this morning I saw them setting up for one of those star dedications on the ‘walk of fame’ at Hollywood and Vine. Apparently Sandler is getting his long-overdue fame acknowledgment. He’s going to finally be a real star!

  17. He used to crack me up, but then all the jokes started sounding the same, and now I just feel embarrassed for him. I think Adam Sandler might be my dad.
