From slap-stick classics like Grown Ups to essential rom-coms like 50 First Dates and thought-provoking dramas like Punch Drunk Love, we’re positive there’s nothing Adam Sandler can’t do. 
Check out this list of the 18 best Adam Sandler movies of all time, including the most quotable Adam Sandler lines from each film. 
Title art for the adult animated holiday movie, Eight Crazy Nights.

“Your Honor, I still got a pretty good jump shot. Let me show you.” – Davey Stone
Christmas isn’t the only holiday being celebrated this season. In this animated Adam Sandler movie, Davey Stone (voiced by Sandler) is an alcoholic local nuisance who’s granted the opportunity to do community service during Hanukkah instead of going to jail — though if you ask Davey, he’ll probably agree jail might have been easier. 
Though Eight Crazy Nights is an animated film, keep in mind that it’s rated PG-13 for adult themes and language.

“Now that’s what I call high-quality H20.” – Bobby Boucher
The WaterBoy is a true underdog story told in the most Adam Sandler way possible: through quirky characters and slapstick comedy. In this film, Sandler plays Bobby Boucher — a severely sheltered adult who discovers his supernatural football skills while volunteering as a waterboy for a college team. Laugh and cheer along as Bobby steps off the sidelines for the very first time to stand up to his bullies (including his overprotective mother) and find confidence in himself, even when the odds are stacked against him.

“Once again, things that could have been brought to my attention YESTERDAY!” – Robbie Hart
Everything changes for jaded wedding singer Robbie Hart (Sandler), when he meets his perfect match in Julia Sullivan (Barrymore). It’s obvious the two are meant to be together, but life (and their current fiances) keep getting in the way. 
As the first film in the Sandler/Barrymore rom-com set of movies, The Wedding Singer is a feel-good classic sure to make you laugh and cry.

Title art for the Adam Sandler movie, Billy Madison.
“Stop looking at me, Swan!” – Billy Madison
Born into extreme privilege, Billy Madison hasn’t had to work hard for anything in his life — he didn’t even finish grade school. When Billy’s father presents him with the shocking decision to keep him out of the will, Billy must now prove himself by repeating grades 1 – 12 all over again. 
Watch: Billy Madison
Title art for the Adam Sandler movie Mr. Deeds.
“I can’t run a company! I can’t even run my own life!” – Longfellow Deeds
Much like the real-life Adam Sandler, Longfellow Deeds (played by Sandler) is a humble and down-to-Earth guy. But, when a very large and unexpected inheritance falls on his lap, Deeds’ morals and values are tested. 
“It was like walking barefoot through broken glass to get a milkshake. I loved the milkshake, but, you know, my feet were bleeding.” – Danny Meyerowitz
When you think of Adam Sandler, his iconic and easily distinguishable comedic ability probably comes to mind first. But, in this dramedy flick, Sandler showcases the depths of his acting ability by brilliantly balancing humor and heartfelt emotion. Along with a star-studded cast including Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, and Adam Driver, The Meyerowitz Stories is a feel-good film you’ll want to watch again and again. 
Title art for the Adam Sandler film, Grown Ups 2.
“Wasted is when you have a hankering for ice cream” – Lenny Feder
We all know Adam Sandler can bring the laughs on his own, but when he’s with his troupe of comedic-genius besties, you’re in for a side-splitting 90 minutes. Laugh along with Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider in these summer comedy classics.

If you met the person of your dreams, would you do whatever it takes to win them over … every day
In this classic early 2000s rom-com movie, commitment-phobe Henry Roth (Adam Sandler) falls head over heels when he meets Lucy Whitmore (Drew Berrymore). The two hit things off immediately, sharing a connection Henry has never felt before. There’s only one problem — Lucy has short-term memory loss and wakes up the next day having forgotten all about Henry. 
Watch: 50 First Dates
Title art for the Adam Sandler movie, Happy Gilmore.
“The price is wrong!” – Happy Gilmore before getting into a fistfight with gameshow host, Bob Barker. 
Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) lives and breathes hockey. So, you can imagine how devastated he was getting kicked off the team for his powerful yet uncontrolled slapshot, which to Happy’s surprise, translates into the world’s most powerful golf drive, landing him in the PGA.

Comedy, drama, and voice acting — is there anything Adam Sandler can’t do?
In the Hotel Transylvania animated movie series, Sandler lends his voice to Dracula, a vampire who also happens to be the owner of a high-end resort for monsters looking to get a little R&R from the human world. When a human boy happens to stumble upon the resort, Dracula must do whatever it takes to keep him hidden from the resort guests in this kid-friendly comedy.
“Hello? An avalanche? In our backyard? I’ll be home right away. It’s an emergency!” – Jim Friedman
So you want another Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore rom-com? Say no more. 
After going on a less-than-stellar blind date, Jim (Sandler) and Lauren (Barrymore) find themselves (and their families) on vacation in Africa at the same time and, as happenstance would have it, at the same resort. 
Maybe it wasn’t love at first sight, but this sounds like fate if you ask us.

But his devious web of lies complicates his chances with Palmer, so he strings his assistant Katherine (Jennifer Aniston), along for the ride. 
TItle art for the Adam Sandler comedy, Big Daddy.
“Having a kid is great as long as his eyes are closed and he’s not moving or speaking.” – Sonny Koufax
