Adam Sandler’s Hidden Truth


“Sandler’s truth is that his onscreen persona has aged with his fans and experienced the same things at roughly the same time they’ve experienced it. Over the course of 20 years, Adam Sandler has gone from being a staple of sleepovers to dorm rooms to lousy apartments to the suburbs. And in that time he’s remained, essentially, the same guy: He’s… the loudmouth buddy who’s progressively less fun to hang out with as you get older.”

From Grantland’s Steven Hyden’s beautiful account of the slight honesty in Sandler’s films and the inevitability of growing too old for them.
