Happy Birthday Adam Sandler! From his Saturday Night Live roots to his modern Netflix stardom, there's a much more nuanced comedic journey to the Sandman than most folks would give him credit for. In honor of the comedic powerhouse turning 54 this week, Adam, Thomas and special guest Scott Johnson are taking a look at his highly contested career. First, the gang takes a look at Adam Sandler turning to the dramatic for the first time in Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch Drunk Love. Then, the boys drag their feet through the cinematic low of Jack & Jill. Together, our trio answers the crucial questions. Did JJ Abrams steal his lens flares from Paul Thomas Anderson? What is the worst Adam Sandler film? Which two films will they choose for next week's episode on Peter Jackson? Well, take a listen to our harmonium of an episode to find out!
