Adam Sandler, despite being one of the most-loved comedic actors in Hollywood, isn't known for starring in the most critically acclaimed of movies. Harsh, I know. But it's true. Even though he may not always be raking in those 5-star reviews, he really knows how to entertain an audience.
There's one iconic Sandler film that has become a staple part of the film industry. Remember watching Big Daddy? Well, Cole Sprouse, who played his son in the film reunited with his movie-dad and they have become some of the most wholesome pictures on the internet.

Adam Sandler has had one hell of a career.
via: GettyAnd it's needless to say, he has become one of our country's most recognizable and well-loved comedic actors.
Sandler found his fame after becoming a Saturday Night Live cast member.
via: GettyAfter dabbling in stand-up comedy for a couple of years, Sandler became an instant hit when he became a regular addition to Saturday Night Live.
Audiences fell in love with Sandler's goofy demeanor.And, alongside his fellow cast member and friend, Chris Farley, he created some memorable and hilarious sketches. However, not everyone was too impressed, and Sandler was subsequently fired from the show in 1995.
But his career didn't stop there.And Sandler went on to star in many comedy classics, including Billy Maddison, Happy Gilmore, and The Wedding Singer.
Yet, despite all of his success...Sandler has continuously struggled at the hands of movie critics, who often raised their eyebrows at his goofy performances.
However, it now appears that Sandler may have finally caught the attention of these critics...As his most recent movie has scored a staggering rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. No easy feat, to say the least.
For those of you who don't know...Rotten Tomatoes is one of the most trusted recommendation resources for movies and TV series. The website rates movies using their "Tomatometer" scoring system: A meter that is based on the opinions of hundreds of film and television critics.
So, it's needless to say, their rating system is a pretty harsh one.For example, Sandler's other (and best performing) movies scored quite poorly on their "Tomatometer," with Happy Gilmore getting 61% and Billy Maddison scraping only 40%.
So it was obviously a massive shock to see his latest release score so highly.
via: Rotten TomatoesThe movie, titled Uncut Gems, is an electrifying new crime thriller created by the acclaimed filmmakers, Josh and Benny Safdie. There is no trailer yet available, and they have released only this one-shot as a preview.
Uncut Gems sounds a lot darker than Sandler's usual type of movie.

When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win."
But, despite the change of genre, Sandler's performance has been wholesomely celebrated.Variety Fair's K. Austin Collins, praised Sandler's performance, gushing: "I'm a longtime fan of Sandler, and of his schtick; I know his grab-bag of gestures and jokes as well as any other living actor's. And yet I wasn't prepared for Uncut Gems, which pushes his comic persona far toward the malicious insecurities that have long given Sandler his fire."
Even though that one is more critically acclaimed, there's one movie that will always remain supreme.

That film about a slightly problematic father-son duo?

A kid isn't just for Christmas, you know...

Remember the iconic moment when Sandler asks Sprouse this:

And he replies:"Thirty packets of ketchup!" It was utterly hilarious.
But after twenty long years, the father-son duo has finally reunited.
