Adam Sandler doesn’t just star in this weekend’s “Grown Ups,” he also helped to write the thing. And in many ways, he’s been preparing for this role—as the man-child struggling with the responsibilities of adulthood—all his career.
Since his very first skit on “Saturday Night Live,” Sandler has been the immature, outsider goof, often smirking and stuttering his lines in a shy-passive manner. His characters are often naïve and juvenile, poking fun at while also celebrating the base desires of the silly, stupid, sexually-charged male.
For most of his fans, Sandler is like their inner infantile nincompoop turned movie star—and a hilarious one at that. Take a look back through his most immature antics.
