Uneven with bouts of garbage and then bouts of genius.
30 March 2006 | by dilbertsupermanSee all my reviews

The thing with Adam Sandler is that he is an uneven genius- an idiot savant if you will- who is not reliably funny. Some of these skits suck in ways that make you wonder if Sandler just got too wasted that week to do anything worthwhile comedic or what. In any event the FF button is your friend on this one- skip the opera singer fer sure-it's disgusting that they had almost every opera singer skit ever made in this- what garbage filler.

The travel guide skit and the girls at the mall skits are worth the price of admission and then some. While this collection is not perfect- when Sandler is on he is ON- and if you only find 3 skits that hit you with the Sandler genius- it was worth it. But I think you will find a good deal more than that. Just don't be afraid to FF through the really lame crap but sometimes it's hard to spot because Sandler dabbles in total stupidity and total genius- sometimes he skips the genius part.
