Adam Sandler Opens Up About Critical Reception To His Movies

Adam Sandler recently addressed critics of his movies and sends a special message to all of them.

Adam said, “When Billy Madison came out, me and my friend who wrote it, we were just like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re going to write about this in New York!'”

He continued, “We read the first one, and we were like, ‘Oh my god, what happened? They hate us.’ And then we were like, ‘It must have been this paper,’ but then 90 percent of the papers are going, ‘This is garbage.'”

He added, “I remember Kathy Bates in Waterboy, and I loved her, and I loved everything she did. I remember telling her when somebody brought up critics that, I was like, ‘They’re probably not gonna like it. They’re probably gonna say bad stuff, maybe don’t read it.’ And she said, ‘Well, I like it, so that’s all that matters,’ or something like that. She was cool.”

Sandler continued, “When the critics started hating me, I really I just felt bad for my family, and I just felt bad for the people who worked really hard on the movies. I mean, I had so many great actors in the movies.”

He added, “When we would get done shooting it, they would say to me, ‘I think the critics are really going to like this one.’ And I’d say, ‘Oh no, they’re going to say bad things, and they’re probably going to say bad things about you being in it.'”
