Adam Sandler's Own Kids Struggle to Sit Through His Movies

Posted 2017/04/10 0 0

Over the years, Adam Sandler has made a slew of movies, some more fondly remembered than others. Here's how his own kids feel about the movies.


Adam Sandler is easily one of the most divisive comedians and actors of our generation. And, whether you love him or hate him, there's no denying the 50-year-old actor has remained an extremely bankable star - his movies have grossed over US $2 billion at the box office. However, it seems like his own kids are not really convinced about those movies.

Sandler recently headed to Ellen to speak about his return to the comedy circuit and the talk show host asked if his kids, 10-year-old Sadie and 8-year-old Sunny, watched his movies.

I'll put them on. Because they beg to see them. They're like, 'Please, it's not fair! Let me watch your movies. Those people always yell things at you on the street. I don't know what the heck they're talking about.' So I show them the movies---they demand this---and they get, every time, I'd say about 20 minutes in, and then I see them tuning out, and then I hear them. They're nervous to say it, but like, 'Can we watch something else?

The actor is also currently promoting his new Netflix movie Sandy Wexler which will star Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James and Terry Crews. The comedy is slated for release on April 14. You can watch the full interview, where Sandler also describes how his kids would rather watch Finding Dory on repeat, below.

However, Sandler is not alone. Angelina Jolie once confessed that her children think her Kung-fu Panda co-star Jack Black is cooler than she is. Matt Damon said during his Martian press tour that his family doesn’t think he’s cool either, saying, “I try to tell them. All the time. My wife doesn't really even get that either. But that’s all right. I’ll keep them around.” And then there’s Chris Rock, whose kids are equally unimpressed. As the comedian told David Letterman on Late Show, “My kids think I’m so unfunny they’re like, ‘Is there enough money saved up for college? Because at some point, people are gonna realize you’re not funny.’”
