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 continuously struggled at the hands of film critics, who often raised their eyebrows at his goofy and often silly performances.
However, it now appears that Sandler may have finally caught the attention of these critics...
via: imdbAs his most recent movie, Uncut Gems, has truly been turning the heads of film buffs.
The movie has scored a staggering rating of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.
via: YouTubeNo easy feat, to say the least.
Obviously, it was a massive shock to see his latest release score so highly.
via: Rotten TomatoesUncut Gems is an electrifying new crime thriller created by the acclaimed filmmakers, Josh and Benny Safdie.
And the critics have been praising the movie.
via: imdbVariety critic, Peter Debruge, said in his write-up: "Uncut Gems feels like being locked inside the pinwheeling brain of a lunatic for more than two hours - and guess what: It's a gas!"
The flick is a far cry from Sandler's other movies.
via: imdbAs Eric Kohn from Indiewire noted, writing: "Uncut Gems won't sit well with anyone who prefers protagonists easy to like or stories with a clear moral compass." "But there's a genuine subversive glee involved in following Howard through his inane quest for all the money he can score, and watching him set himself up for failure with such conviction the whole way through."
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."
‘Uncut Gems’ best film of year and one of the best of the decade! What other movie of any of the movies understood… https://t.co/Np2rSIfhSf— Gabriel Gundacker (@Gabriel Gundacker)1578953633.0
It was even predicted to be a winner at the Oscars...
via: imdbIn Rotten Tomatoes' "Ridiculously Early Oscar Predictions" list, Sadler has made the list to be a potential Oscar winner for the "Best Actor" award, with them stating: "He is beloved by many, but he has not been much of critical darling, especially lately. That being said, when Sandler teams up with indie directors, good things happen." But of course, the flick was ultimately snubbed this year.
